Giddyup Buttercup is a junk item in Fallout 4. The item was originally included in Fallout 3, marketed as "the ultimate in equestrian robotics" before the Great War.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The Giddyup Buttercup is a rather small toy horse made of metal with peeling, well-worn paint. It can be scrapped for parts, proving to be a plentiful source of screws and steel. Various Giddyup Buttercup parts can also be found throughout the Commonwealth.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

The Giddyup Buttercup can be broken down into its individual components for use in crafting:

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • A unique variant can be obtained from Arlen Glass after returning Marlene's holotape, found in Wilson Atomatoys corporate HQ.
  • It is too heavy to lift despite the fact that the player character is able to carry them in their inventory. In a settlement, one can move dropped Buttercups around through the build interface.
  • The various Giddyup Buttercup parts do not provide the same amount of scrap materials as a complete Giddyup Buttercup. A complete Buttercup provides 4 springs, 3 gears, 4 screws, and 5 steel with a weight of eight pounds. A head, body, two front legs, and two rear legs yield 12 springs, 8 gears, 2 screws, and 8 steel with a combined weight of ten pounds. Note that if the front and rear leg were counted as a pair of legs each, even though the model is clearly a single leg, then the totals are closer, with 8 springs, 4 gear, 2 screws, and 6 steel with a combined weight of eight pounds.
  • The Fallout 3 rendition featured white paint and the Fallout 4 version featured yellow.
