Boone's 1st Recon assault armor is designed to provide snipers with maximum protection while deployed on aggressive missions in hotly contested zones. It will not count against his carrying capacity. This armor represents Boone's relentless thirst for vengeance and his resolve to go down fighting.
- 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.
