The Hat of the People provides a bonus of +5 to Small Guns, unlike the regular version, which provides +1 to Perception. It also has 5 more HP and is worth 23 caps more than its non-unique counterpart.
This hat can be found in a room within an Average locked floor safe on the second floor of the abandoned apartments. Once upstairs, enter the first apartment on the right, unlock the Easy locked door to the right of bathroom, and the safe can be found under the nightstand.
- This item was present within Fallout 3's files before the add-on's release. However, without The Pitt add-on, it is cut content and is only obtainable with console commands. If the item is obtained within The Pitt and the add-on is then uninstalled, the hat will remain in the player character's inventory.
- The same apartment containing the safe with the hat also has several Chinese assault rifles and a small stockpile of ammunition & pre-War money.
