1st Recon survival armor is a piece of armor in .
Fallout: New Vegas
Characteristics Edit Boone's 1st Recon survival armor is fitted with extra features and storage designed to help a sniper and his comrades survive the harsh desert environment. It does not count against his carrying capacity. This armor represents his desire to continue living in the Wasteland for the sake of a greater good, even if the Wasteland continues to treat him harshly. It provides a Damage Threshold of 15 and can be repaired with NCR trooper armor.
It looks like a slightly different skinned version of the NCR bandoleer armor.
Awarded to Boone after completion of the quest
I Forgot to Remember to Forget, should the player make Boone repentant over his past.
The unit insignia for 1st Recon on the left arm of the uniform is a mirror image of the insignia on his right arm, making it appear reversed.
Because his quest is complicated to trigger, this armor is difficult to get before superior armor, like Combat armor, reinforced mark 2, becomes available. This makes it useful only to increase his carrying capacity (while reducing his DT) rather than being a universal upgrade, like ED-E's quest armor upgrade.
The back of the Fallout: New Vegas game case shows a character wearing this armor; however, the person wearing the armor is clearly not Boone.
In the Prima Games Official Game Guide, it mentions that this armor (along with the 1st Recon assault 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, most likely because it is not meant to be worn by the player.
Unlike the 1st Recon assault armor, it does not disguise you as a member of the NCR.
