Recall code

From The Vault - Fallout Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A recall code is a verbal identifier used by the Institute to reset synths and bring them back under their control. Recall codes are used in the reclamation of B5-92 (Gabriel) from Libertalia and also for the retention of the four escaped synths during the Battle of Bunker Hill. A reset of a synth's cognitive functions[1] is performed by stating "(synth designation), initialize factory reset. Authorization (recall code)".[2][3]

List of known recall codes

Fake recall codes

  • Deacon mentions that his recall code is "You can't trust everyone",[10] which is a lie because he is not actually a synth.
