The all-purpose science suit is a unique piece of clothing in Fallout: New Vegas.


A special science suit made by the Followers of the Apocalypse for high risk missions into hospitals and labs with high resistance and special polymers woven into the suit. An onboard computer system allows for easier programming and calculating advanced formulas.

This armor provides a Damage Threshold of 13 and bonus of 5 to Science, and can be repaired with scientist outfits. It has the highest Damage Threshold-to-weight ratio in the game, especially when the Pack Rat perk is active.


  • After installing the 1.2 patch, it is sitting on the one of the three beds in the Followers safehouse. The safehouse key is acquired from Julie Farkas after becoming Idolized with the Followers.


  • The suit was originally cut from Fallout: New Vegas, but was restored with the 1.2 patch.
  • This suit is physically identical to the Enclave scientist outfit.


  • Icon ps3.png It is possible to obtain multiple copies of the suit via deleting the patch 1.2, then re-downloading it; the all-purpose science suit will reappear on the bed. [verified]
  • Icon xbox360.png After patch 1.3, the safehouse may replenish its weapons and armor and any stored items may be lost, meaning that you can get two copies of this armor. [verified]
