Locations

After completing For Auld Lang Syne, the Courier leaves the Remnants bunker and is met by Arcade who is wearing the Gannon family Tesla armor. Arcade will mention the armor was worn by his late father, and depending on dialogue choices, offer it to the Courier or wear it himself during the battle.[1][2]

Notes

  • Though the metal parts of the armor are invisible while using a Stealth Boy, the light produced by the armor is still visible.
  • This armor is the most protective piece of medium armor.

Bugs

  • PCIcon pc.png Playstation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Patch #2. After completing For Auld Lang Syne, the dialogue option never appears to obtain the Gannon family Tesla armor (it is possible to get the dialogue option to work after re-doing the five conversations with Arcade and choosing a different answer). It does not matter if one kills Orion Moreno or not. If the player character releases Arcade Gannon and tells him to leave, he can no longer be recruited back, and Arcade will possibly be located in the Lucky 38. If one manages to find him, he can be killed and the Gannon family Tesla armor can be looted from his corpse. [verified]
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png After completing For Auld Lang Syne, Gannon asks the player character for advice, but the dialogue option to answer does not come up. Afterward, one is unable to open their control wheel, simply skipping to the dialogue tree when selected. This issue can be fixed by sending him back to the Followers and recruiting him again, but he still will not discuss his future or give the player character his armor. [verified]

Since you convinced me to help out with the defense of Hoover Dam, I figured I'd haul it out of storage. I'm a little rusty with it but... I think I can manage. As long as you've got my back, of course."

  2. Arcade Gannon: "Like I said, I needed to go do something. This is it. It belonged to my father. I thought I might wear it at Hoover Dam, but after you talked me out of it, I didn't see the point in hanging on to it any longer. I'm here because of you, so I figure you're the one most deserving of it. It should protect you from everything short of a Plasma Caster. And if you need anything - anything at all - you know where to find me."
