Heavy raider armor is an armor set in Fallout 4.

Background[edit | edit source]

Raiders are masters of improvisation and their armor is testament to that fact. Crafted out of salvaged junk and industrial equipment, raider armor is thick, unwieldy, and provides excellent protection from environmental hazards, thanks to the jutting pipes arranged to form a protective cage, not unlike a car rollover protection structure. The armor sets offer modest combat protection, but are excellent in surviving the hazards of scavenging and exploration.

The largest version of the raider armor is also the heaviest, trading maneuverability and flexibility for protection and sheer intimidation. Salvaged plates cover the thighs, ankles, forearms, and shoulders, held in place with leather straps and thick wire. A cluster of plates is attached to the waist belt, providing minor protection for the groin, with a carry bag, a small skull, and another bone piece wrapped around the waist. The main assembly is perhaps the most impressive, creating a cage that surrounds the entire head, protecting from debris, with a large tank carried on the back and additional, smaller tanks mounted on the front rack. The usual hoses are wrapped across the body, with open pipes used to decorate the armor with the skulls of the raider's enemies.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The largest and heaviest variant of the armor. It's relatively rare and offers the least amount of protection per unit of weight - it is, however, very commonplace and easy to trade.

Modifications[edit | edit source]

This item has the following modification slots: Material, Misc. All numbers are relative to the base stats.

  • Material mods can't be swapped between arms and legs, even though they cost the same and provide the same bonuses.
  • Misc mods that are available to both arms and legs can be swapped.
  • You can find Muffled arms as loot, but this is a bug. If the Muffled mod is removed from the arms, it cannot be re-added. It also likely provides no benefit on the arms.

Recommendations:

  • Always skip the Welded mod for the limbs since Tempered weighs the same.
  • Torso Misc mods tend to give more benefit for the same cost in materials.
