Catastrophic system failure... Initiating core shutdown as per emergency initiative 2682209... I die, so that democracy may li... — Liberty Prime, Fallout 3.

Liberty Prime is a military combat robot commissioned by the United States Army before the war from General Atomics International and RobCo Industries. Left unfinished before the Great War, it was reactivated by Lyons' Brotherhood of Steel in 2277 for their war against the Enclave. After its destruction at the hands of the Enclave, Liberty Prime was repaired to working condition a decade later to aid the Eastern division of the Brotherhood to neutralize the threat of The Institute.

History[edit | edit source]

Prime is the result of military contract 38917, for which the United States Army contracted RobCo Industries and General Atomics International to collaborate on an unprecedented joint project: The creation of the most powerful combat robot in the history of warfare, to liberate Anchorage, Alaska from Chinese occupation. Development commenced in 2072,[1] and was intended to serve both military and propaganda needs. The former dictated the capacity, the latter the design: In the words of General Constantine Chase, initiator of the project, Liberty Prime was to embody the American military: A walking, talking, nuke-tossing hero reminding enemies of the U.S. that they picked a fight with a global super power.[2] Confident that the project would soon yield result, General Chase publicly confirmed in June 2072 that the U.S. Army was working with General Atomics and RobCo to create a superweapon meant to establish dominance of the United States on the Alaskan front.[3]

However, reality proved to be a harsh mistress. While the chassis of the robot and its weapons were all completed by the projected date, including the voice module, the developers were unable to finish the project for one simple reson: As Stanley Bloomfeld, project lead, reported to General Chase, they were unable to develop a power source compact enough to power all of its systems. Vault-Tec Industries was unable to help, as the only person capable of solving this conundrum - Stanislaus Braun - went into seclusion shortly before the problems manifested. The robot could technically move and navigate terrain, but it would only do so with all weapons systems offline.[4] The delay was unacceptable and the U.S. military was forced to press on without the aid of Liberty Prime. The Alaskan campaign was won, at a heavy cost in men and materiel, while Liberty Prime remained in his bay below the Pentagon, waiting for a solution to his power management problems.[5]

A new lease on life[edit | edit source]

Prime in its bay

With the Great War beginning and ending, leaving nearly all destroyed, the robot was abandoned and soon forgotten. His new chance came in 2255, when the Brotherhood of Steel expedition under Owyn Lyons arrived in Washington and found him beneath the ruins of the Pentagon. This impressive find led them to claim the Pentagon as the D.C. Bunker, their Citadel, and resuming development of the failed pre-War project.[6] However, the same problems would plague the program as before the War. Chief among these was energy consumption. The Brotherhood had no way of powering the behemoth robot, even with Reginald Rothchild heading the project.[7]

For twenty years, the Brotherhood struggled to launch its robot. Every attempt to gain ground was compensated with failures, even as late as 2277. On May 8, 2277, the research team managed to restore 46% power to internal processors, 45% to weapons, and 37% to power management systems, and attempted to redistribute power to bring the robot online.[8] The attempt proved fruitless, with problems coming from the least expected direction: Liberty Prime himself. Rothchild's team tried to bypass the aggressive combat subroutines by trying to fool the robot with a neural dampener that power was being redistributed from a source other than its weapons. However, the onboard AI routines detected the attempt and again refused to allow the researchers to draw power away from its weapon systems. The attempt fried some of the robots circuitry and set the project back three months, again.[9]

Another attempt was made on July 13, 2277. However, a faulty power capacitor caused a power spike and degraded system performance,dropping internal processor, weapons, and power management power to 12%, 13% and, 1% respectively.[10] Tired of struggling with rerouting power, Rothchild ended power management experiments and resumed work on Accelerated Vector Fusion module to simply meet the power demands. Inspired by the work of Dr. Madison Li at Rivet City, Rothchild hoped for a breakthrough.[11] Unfortunately, this avenue of research proved.. Risky. In its first major experiment on August 1, 2277, the AVF device resulted in 2nd degree burns for Scribe Bowditch, while an accidental weapon discharge nearly killed Elder Lyons.[12] These events led to stricter control imposed on the experimentation team.[13]

Yet there was hope. Despite the accidents, Rothchild's team was able to restore much of the power and improve its distribution (bringing power to internal processors to 87% and weapons to 60%), but problems with power management (operating at 3% efficiency) made deployment impossible. Mobility and navigation translation, as always, stubbornly remained at 0%. Only the voice module worked at 100% at all times, mocking the researchers.[14]

Help came unexpectedly. When the Enclave seized Project Purity, Dr. Madison Li arrived at the Citadel. With her experience in fusion research and applications, Rothchild and his team were able to resolve the power management problems.[15][16]

Liberty Prime was awoken and brought online for the first time in its life and more than two centuries overdue. Deployed against the Enclave in the Battle of Project Purity, Liberty Prime making its way towards Project Purity over the Arlington Memorial bridge. The massive robot acted as a spearhead, destroying Vertibirds and entrenched Enclave positions with ease. The Enclave was entirely unprepared for such an offensive and could not counter such brute force, even with Vertibird strafing runs and artillery bombardment.[17]

Lyons's Pride and the Lone Wanderer followed the robot's path of destruction, mopping up any Enclave personnel that survived the initial assault. Liberty Prime continued its assault up to the Purifier, destroying photonic resonance barriers set up around the island to deny land access. Upon arrival at the Memorial, Liberty Prime and the Pride set up a security perimeter, while Sarah Lyons and the Lone Wanderer headed inside the facility.[17]

Death and rebirth[edit | edit source]

Paladins deployed alongside Liberty Prime.

The victory at the Purifier set the pattern for attacks using Liberty Prime. For two weeks, the Brotherhood mopped up Enclave forces throughout the Capital Wasteland, until the Battle of Rockland. The attack followed a standard pattern. Liberty Prime was deployed as spearhead, destroying the bulk of the enemy forces and bypassing their fortifications, while ground troops under Tristan's command followed the robot, mopping up any stragglers. The initial attack went well and the combat group penetrated enemy defenses right up into the facility. Liberty Prime proceeded to create an access point into the facility, by punching through the concrete walls.[18]

However, this was a ruse by the Enclave. Liberty Prime was lured into the cul-de-sac in front of the Rockland facility in order to be destroyed. Just as he opened the facility to the Brotherhood's assault, the Enclave initiated a tactical missile bombardment from the Bradley-Hercules orbital weapons platform, turning the area into a kill zone. Liberty Prime was destroyed, with Tristan's forces just barely able to reach minimum safe distance.[19][18]

The destruction of Liberty Prime put the Brotherhood in a very difficult position, as it removed the only significant military advantage it had over the Enclave.[20] Lyons had little in the way of men and resources at the beginning of the conflict with the Enclave, and after the loss of Prime all of these problems surfaced, exacerbated by the ongoing water delivery program. With the resources pooled into defense against the Enclave, the Brotherhood had to rely on the Lone Wanderer as their trump card.[21]

Meanwhile, Rothchild immediately began work on rebuilding Prime, hoping to restore him to working condition. Eventually, the project was shelved due to a lack of success until Proctor Ingram was ordered to resume operations. Despite the terrible state of salvage,[22] she labored for several years to reconstruct the robot.[23] When Elder Arthur Maxson realized that the Institute can be tracked down and confronted in the Commonwealth, Prime's components were loaded onto the Prydwen and brought along for the campaign. A special gantry was constructed in the ruins of the Boston Airport, to assemble the war machine under Proctor Ingram's orders - as long as the Brotherhood would be able to salvage the components that would allow for it to be deployed.[24]

There were several problems that had to be rectified. For starters, the fragile CPU blew itself out whenever the scribes tried feeding power to it,[25] due to the complexity of the robot's power system. The missile strike that destroyed Prime also wrecked the power system, necessitating the development of a new system, enlisting the aid of Doctor Li.[26] The damage to the memory core was rectified with her help (after noting that the extensive damage to the memory care was also a result of Brotherhood's inept handling of the salvage).[27]

The next step in the reconstruction was rebuilding its limbs. Electromagnetic actuators were used for this purpose, constructed on site using high powered magnets.[28] Following the successful assembly of the limbs, the last remaining component of the combat robot was a supply of modified Mark 28 nuclear bombs, necessary if it was ever to operate at full capacity.[29]

The final step in bringing Liberty Prime back to life was reactivating its fusion reactor, which lay dormant ever since its destruction. Kept online by power leeched from the Prydwen, Prime's reactor required the experimental beryllium agitator to cold start the reactor.[30] The agitator - located at the Mass Fusion Building - would provide the power surge necessary to start the reaction.[31]

Overview[edit | edit source]

Liberty Prime was built to be the very embodiment of American military might - a walking, talking, nuke-tossing hero to remind the world what it means to be a super power. As such, it is patterned after the human silhouette and outfitted with the most powerful weapons available to the United States military.[2] Liberty Prime had two primary weapons: Its head-mounted Liberty laser[32] and a back-mounted supply of Mark 28 nuclear bombs, modified from standard aircraft weapons.[29] The sheer power output of the chassis allowed it to destroy fortifications simply by crushing or punching through them.[33]

The combination of a directed energy weapon capable of destroying targets at hundreds of yards with pin-point accuracy and high-yield specialized explosives produced a weapon system theoretically capable of engaging any target in any terrain. The only drawback was Prime's slow speed, as it could only move at a walking pace due to the amount of weapons it carried. Foreseeing this issue, Liberty Prime was outfitted with the toughest armor available, allowing it to withstand extended combat with no performance loss. In fact, Prime was so well equipped that the only weapon that could reliably damage or destroy it was a nuclear warhead detonating point blank (or an orbital missile salvo, as witnessed by the Brotherhood of Steel).[34][35]

However, as mentioned above, Prime was a miracle on paper, but less so in practice. No fusion power source available in 2072 produced enough energy to allow Liberty Prime to operate even at a minimum combat capacity, and as the war with China dragged on, the project was eventually mothballed. The self-sustaining fusion reactor remained active, powering the robot, until finally Madison Li resolved the power distribution and management problems, allowing it to be deployed into combat.[15]

Liberty Prime is just as Chase described him: A walking, nuke-tossing hero. The giant robot has two head-mounted Liberty lasers that can take out multiple Enclave soldiers or synths with each shot and an endless supply of nuclear bombs it can chuck at enemies to devastating effect.

His armored shell and powerful strength are also an asset, as it can simply step on targets to ruin them and destroy anything with its hands, even photonic resonance barriers that are seemingly impregnable. Artillery, rockets, and energy weapons hardly register as damage either.

Liberty Prime also plays back inspiring shouts, originally intended to boost the morale of U.S. soldiers fighting the Chinese occupants at Anchorage. It considers all enemy targets to be Chinese soldiers.

Quests[edit | edit source]

  • Take it Back!: The player follows Liberty Prime to the Jefferson Memorial and Project Purity as it carves a swath through Enclave forces. The player's role is essentially that of a janitor, as they simply have to mop up whomever survived Prime's onslaught.
  • Death From Above: Prime is deployed to the Rockland facility. Again, this is effectively a cutscene, as the player follows the robot's path of destruction. Prime is destroyed once the facility is reached, initiating a self-destruct sequence to prevent salvaging.
  • Getting Ready for Prime Time: The player can donate sensor modules and cameras to Scribe Rothchild to aid in the rebuilding of Liberty Prime (the extent of destruction notwithstanding).

Other interactions[edit | edit source]

  • Prime is stuck in its bay for most of the game, although the player can activate a test of its voice module.
  • The player can accidentally turn Prime hostile during the final quest of Fallout 3, with predictable effects.

    By Walter "Street Beat" Munroe
    Capital Post Staff Writer
    In a startling turnaround from their previous policy of complete covert development, the United States Army has confirmed that they are indeed working on a new super weapon, one designed specifically to crush the Red Chinese invasion force and liberate occupied Anchorage, Alaska once and for all.
    Speaking at an Army press conference at the Pentagon, General Constantine Chase stated: "No more secrets. The time has come to lay all our cards on the table, so the Chinese can see with their own eyes that we've got the winning hand. The United States Army is proud to announce that for the first time in history, General Atomics International and RobCo have joined forces to create for this great country a super weapon that will leave every single yellow-bellied Red shaking in their Commie booties."
    Unfortunately for our readers, that's as specific as Chase is willing to get. While he and the Army are ready for China to know the U.S. is developing a new weapon, they're not quite ready to divulge just what it is, or when it will be ready for development.
    "All in due time, all in due time. Rest assured, when this weapon is complete, liberty will come to Anchorage and Hell will follow.""
  4. Citadel terminals: "Letter: Dr. Bloomfeld to Gen. Chase
    General Chase,
    I'm sorry, but you're being completely unrealistic. There is simply no way the robot will be combat ready in three months.
    The chassis is complete, all weapons systems are online, and the voice module has been programmed as requested. But power consumption is still our primary concern, and neither doctors Honeywell nor Park have yet found an acceptable solution.
    We had hoped to sub-contract Vault-Tec, and utilize the talents of Doctor Braun. But apparently he's gone into seclusion, working on one of their own projects, and they couldn't reach him at this point if they wanted to. So that's out.
    I'll give it to you straight, General -- this is the biggest robot the world has ever seen, and we just haven't been able to find a power source small enough, and powerful enough, to get the damn thing running with all its systems online.
    In three months we might be able to guarantee the robot can walk into downtown Anchorage, but all of his weapons systems will be OFFLINE.
    Maybe he can just step on the Red Chinese?
    Doctor Stanley Bloomfeld
    Project Lead"
  5. The Lone Wanderer: "Who built Liberty Prime? Or better yet... why?"
    Reginald Rothchild: "He was developed as a super weapon, back in the days before the war. The first joint operation between RobCo and General Atomics International. Apparently, he was meant to help liberate Alaska from the Chinese, but was never completed. They were forced to go in without him. They won, but suffered heavy losses. If we can get him up and running, well... I think you get the idea."
    (Reginald Rothchild's dialogue)
  6. Fallout 4 loading screen hints: "Liberty Prime was a failed pre-war military project. The Brotherhood of Steel completed that project, and the giant robot is now the most powerful weapon in their arsenal."
  7. The Lone Wanderer: "Are you in charge of the um... the robot?"
    Reginald Rothchild: "I am, and have been since we first found him, well over twenty years ago. Liberty Prime is the designation we found on file for him. Magnificent, don't you think? At least he will be, once all systems are operational. It's the energy consumption. Something that big, with such advanced weapons systems... we just don't have the means to power him. Not yet."
    (Reginald Rothchild's dialogue)
  8. Citadel terminals: "May 8, 2277
    Here are the results of the latest robot diagnostic:
    Mobility -- 0%
    Navigation Translation -- 0%
    Internal Processors -- 46%
    Weapons Systems -- 45%
    Power Management -- 37%
    Voice Module -- 100%
    Scribe Rothchild is confident that by redistributing power from the Weapons and Mobility subsystems, we'll be able to bring Power Management up to at least 67% -- enough to successfully carry out a full activation sequence."
  9. Citadel terminals: "May 9, 2277
    Another day, another setback.
    We had tried, of course, re-routing power from Weapons to the robot's other sub-systems several times. Each attempt ended in failure, thanks to the robot's overly aggressive combat subroutines. It's almost as if there's some hidden pocket of AI that keeps pushing against us, refusing to let anyone drain power from the Weapons systems.
    I guess that shouldn't surprise me, considering why he was constructed in the first place.
    That's why I began work on the Neural Dampener in the first place. I was convinced I could "trick" the robot into thinking I had actually re-distributed the power from some other sub-system. But the damned thing proved smarter than that. Certainly smarter than me.
    All I managed to do was fry some of his circuitry (again) and set us back another three months."
  10. Citadel terminals: "July 13, 2277
    Scribe Rothchild has completed a new full diagnostic of the robot. Here are those results:
    Mobility -- 0%
    Navigation Translation -- 0%
    Internal Processors -- 12%
    Weapons Systems -- 13%
    Power Management -- 1%
    Voice Module -- 100%
    It has been determined that the recent feedback spike, which resulted in overall system degradation, was in fact caused by the installation of the new power capacitor, as Scribe Rothchild suspected.
    Until further notice, Scribes are ordered to cease any and all experiments that involve the re-routing of power from any of the robot's sub-systems."
  11. Citadel terminals: "July 14, 2277
    I'm tired of trying to re-route power like some kind of snot-nosed Initiate.
    I don't care what kind of drain it puts on the Scribes' ability to research and maintain the weapons and armor -- I'm proceeding with the AVF experiments.
    If I can successfully create an Accelerated Vector Fusion module (similar to the technology I saw Doctor Li working with all those years ago), we'll have our first real chance of getting the robot fully operational.
    Maybe then the Western Elders will realize our worth."
  12. Citadel terminals: "August 1, 2277
    Unfortunately, the Accelerated Vector Fusion (AVF) experiments haven't gone as planned.
    Bowditch suffered 2nd degree burns, and at one point we accidentally channeled so much power to the robot's head laser, it discharged and nearly killed Elder Lyons.
    He was not pleased.
  13. Citadel terminals: "AVF Problem
    Recent experiments with Accelerated Vector Fusion (AVF) have not gone according to plan. All Scribes assigned to the Lab should check with Scribe Rothchild on a daily basis, and obtain any modified technical parameters as needed."
  14. Citadel terminals: "Scribe Rothchild has completed a new full diagnostic of the robot. Here are those results:
    Mobility -- 0%
    Navigation Translation -- 0%
    Internal Processors -- 87%
    Weapons Systems -- 60%
    Power Management -- 3%
    Voice Module -- 100%
    It is the assessment of Scribe Rothchild that once the Power Management issues are solved, Mobility and Navigation Translation will jump to at least 50% -- well within acceptable operating capacity."
  15. 15.0 15.1 The Lone Wanderer: "What are you doing now?"
    Madison Li: "I'm assisting Rothchild with some of his research. I've worked with portable generators more extensively than he has. I don't really care for the idea that this is supporting some gigantic military robot, but given the state of things, I recognize the need for it."
    (Madison Li's dialogue)
  16. The Lone Wanderer: "How is Liberty Prime holding up?"
    Reginald Rothchild: "Performance is exceeding all our expectations. He's been especially effective against the Enclave's Vertibirds, for which we previously had no counter. We're fine-tuning his programming as we go, but on the whole I'm pleasantly surprised. It's as I always suspected. Prime's real issue was energy management, and when Doctor Li helped us solve that problem, well, the rest was easy."

  26. Ingram: ""Liberty Prime has a highly complex power system. Liberty Prime has a highly complex power system. A good deal of that system was damaged when he exploded, so I'm working in the dark trying to come up with parts on my own. Luckily, you were able to convince Doctor Madison Li to return to the Brotherhood. She was on the original build team for Liberty Prime a little over a decade ago. I've already spoken to her, but she's reluctant to work on Prime for some reason. If you could get her down here to lend a hand with his power system, we can get the big guy moving."

His nukes are modified Mark 28 Nuclear Bombs. They used to drop the things from bombers during the war. Just one of the nukes is equivalent to about three or four Fat Man shells. Basically, whatever it hits isn't getting up again. His eye laser is almost ready to go, but without nukes to load into his pack, he's fighting at less than half his capability."

  30. Ingram: "Anyway, we need to move on to more important things now... like getting Liberty Prime off of life support. We've been feeding him power through the Prydwen's engines, but there isn't nearly enough juice to cold start his fusion reactor. That's why we need you to find us a Beryllium Agitator."
  31. Ingram: "If Prime's reactor is a campfire, the Beryllium Agitator is like a match. Strike it, throw it on the logs, and the whole thing ignites. Fusion reactors need a massive power surge in order to get the reaction started. Once it starts, it's self-sustaining. I'm sure I could get one of my scribes to bore you to death with the details, but you get the gist."
