Hot Rodder is a magazine in Fallout 4. Each issue collected unlocks a new custom paint job for power armor.


Hot Rodder is a pre-War magazine for automotive enthusiasts. By reading the Hot Rodder magazine, the Sole Survivor is able to unlock a new custom paint job for power armor. There are three Hot Rodder magazine paint jobs; all three grant a +1 Agility bonus when painted on a full set of power armor:

  • Flames - Red base with black flames
  • Hot Pink - Pink base with white scallops
  • Shark - Olive base with red edges, and eyes with a shark mouth on the torso
  • Gametitle-FO4 CC Racing Stripes - Dark blue with 2 white stripes down the torso

All paint jobs earned through the Hot Rodder magazines are free to apply, and no crafting ingredients are required.
