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.


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.


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

  • 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.
