National Archives turret generator

The player character can interact with the turret generator in the National Archives. A successful Repair skill check of 60 will allows one to pull open the maintenance panel and shut it down, thereby disabling all of the turrets on the level.


Generators are found in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.
