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

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

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[edit | edit source]

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

Originally, creating the armor rendered an item at 100% condition. Since the Old World Blues add-on, it is created at 80%.
