Advanced power armor is a piece of armor in Fallout 2.


The armor is described as being created with lightweight metal alloys, reinforced with ceramic castings at key points.[1] In addition, the item description notes that the armor has high quality "motion-assist servo-motors."[1] The Chosen One mentions that the power armor recycles urine.[2] Enclave members wear the armor, some of which have the faction's insignia on the front and rank on the side.[3][4]




  • When the Chosen One is equipped with advanced power armor, non-player characters in New Reno will react accordingly.
  • This armor works as a disguise when worn around Enclave members at the Oil Rig, making them non-hostile to the Chosen One. It doesn't function as a disguise in random encounters.

Behind the scenes

The armor is mentioned in Fallout 2 Official Strategies & Secrets and the Fallout Bible.[Non-canon 1][Non-canon 2]

  1. Fallout 2 Official Strategies & Secrets p.215: "To make time pass more quickly, just access your Pip-Boy, set the alarm, and rest for six hours. The Sarge won't mind if you take a little snooze. Besides, inside your Power Armor, no one can tell that your eyes are closed. Just make sure you power up the auto-gyro and lock the suit's knees in position before you catch any Zs."
  2. Fallout Bible 0:"2198 Enclave works on various new technologies, including Power Armor variations. None of these are much of an improvement over the conventional old school Power Armor, and some are actually worse."
