The gilded grasshopper is a unique junk item in Fallout 4 and part of the quest The Gilded Grasshopper. After the quest, it has no other uses.
A crafted grasshopper, made out of gold, glass and copper. Inside it is a note, Food for the grasshopper. It was created by Shem Drowne in commision for Peter Faneuil.
The gilded grasshopper can be broken down into its individual components for use in crafting:
It can be found on top of the roof of Faneuil Hall, as a windvane atop the golden dome, next to the ruined belltower.
A replica can be found on Fallout 76, on a stand in Appalachian Antiques. However, it cannot be picked up.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Gilded Grasshopper is evidently based on the Grasshopper weather vane on top of today's Faneuil Hall in Boston, created by Shem Drowne.
