The Advanced riot gear and the matching Advanced riot gear helmet are pieces of armor in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road.


The advanced riot gear is a more advanced version of the standard riot gear. The helmet gives the effect "Red Vision", which gives the user low-visibility sight while in sneak mode between 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM or while indoors. This will toggle from on to off upon exiting sneak mode.



Found on the body of a ghoulified NCR riot control officer in The Crow's Nest. This NCR trooper will be hanging out a window closest to the cave to the west. However, detonating the warhead before going to the Crow's Nest might cause the trooper to be missing.


  • While sneaking with the advanced riot gear helmet at night or within a building, it will activate a red, hazy night vision effect. The red low-light vision may activate later in the evening, as late as 8:15 pm.
  • The advanced riot gear has its very own effect named "Riot Response" (Explosives +10, Endurance +1). It can be seen in the effects section of the Pip-Boy when equipped.
  • Playing Caravan while the sneak sight is activated may make it difficult to see the cards.
