Goggles helmet is a piece of headwear in Fallout: New Vegas.


It is a dull brown helmet identical to the trooper helmet, except with the pair of goggles pulled down over the wearer's eyes. It provides a Damage Threshold of 2.




  • Glasses can be worn with the goggles helmet, they will be visible and in front of the goggles.
  • The DT even at max condition is quite low. This is due to the fact that steel helmets were not meant to be bulletproof, rather protect from flying shrapnel and debris. The helmets would be quite useful while inside old buildings, as they would protect from falling chunks of building material, and the brim would be useful outside, to protect from the sun.
  • According to John Sawyer, the helmets "likely would have used metal with a cloth over the top, which was fairly common in the 20th century."[1] They are most likely made en masse out of melted down scrap metal and pressed into shape.

Behind the scenesEdit

The helmet appears to be influenced by both the Brodie helmet, as used by most Americans and British commonwealths in World War I, and wide-brimmed pith helmets, used before, during, and after the same time period.
