The 1st Recon assault armor provides a Damage Threshold of 15 and can be repaired with NCR armor. The armor is exclusive to Boone and will not count against his carrying capacity. This armor is a darker version of the standard NCR trooper armor with a First Recon patch on the sleeve, no NCR emblem on the breastplate, and pants similar to the merc grunt outfit or wasteland doctor fatigues.
Obtained after completing his side quest I Forgot to Remember to Forget, if he becomes vengeful over his past.
- The armor can be obtained by using the console commands player.additem 00140c39 1 and then player.equipitem 00140c39. However, since the armor was intended to be unobtainable, equipping it causes the red facewrap to clip into the 1st-person camera while wielding one-handed guns.
- In the Prima Games Official Game Guide, it mentions that this armor (along with the 1st Recon survival armor), can be obtained by taking it out of Boone's inventory. However, this is not the case, as it can only be obtained via console commands.
- The vault-boy icon shows him wearing leather armor, despite it being NCR-type armor.
