The gecko-backed metal armor, reinforced is a type of armor in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts.

Characteristics

This armor provides a Damage Threshold of 20 as well as increased resistance to fire, poison and radiation, but also reduces Agility by -1 like all metal armors. It also provides +4 DT more than the normal version, at the cost of a five pound increase in weight.

Like all gecko-backed armor introduced in Honest Hearts, its appearance is unchanged from the original armor type.

Crafting

This armor must be crafted by the player character. It cannot be found on enemies or in containers.

Bugs

Icon pc.png Icon ps3.png Icon xbox360.png If you are wearing the metal armor during crafting, you will retain a -1 AGL even when you take off the newly crafted piece. [verified] To fix this, equip another set of reinforced metal armor and unequip it.
