Synth field helmet is an headgear-type item in Fallout 4.


A lightweight helmet from materials synthesized by the Institute, designed to provide protection for early generation synths without greatly increasing their encumbrance. The shell features a drop-down polarized visor and a reinforced faceplate.


Although developed by The Institute to increase the protection of their generation 1 and 2 synths, it can also be worn by humans. Overall the synth helmet is similar to the combat armor helmet, with slightly more emphasis on energy protection. It weighs slightly less, but has higher upgrade costs. Also, "Shadowed" mods are not available for synth armor.


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

Due to a bug, the helmet does not change material correctly; if modified, it will have the same, beige coloring.
