The metal armor is a piece of armor in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Metal armor serves as a very heavy armor. It provides much more protection than a flimsy suit of leather armor, but is more ramshackle than combat armor and is weaker than power armor. It can be very useful for someone who has Jury Rigging since it can be used to repair most types of power armor. The metal helmet is similar in shape to a motorcycle helmet. It provides moderate protection for a piece of headgear and has a stronger variant, the metal helmet, reinforced.

  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png When holding metal armor outside of the pipboy (via pressing down L3) when jumping the metal armor will freeze mid-air and vanish. It won't disappear, and will be invisible. To avoid this, it is advised to pick it up again.
