The Paladins lead the Knights. The Knights are the core of the Brotherhood -- they scour the Wastes to eliminate evil and recover technology.Scribe Jameson

Knights are members of the Brotherhood of Steel. They make up the bulk of its armed forces as the standard soldiers.


Unlike in the original Brotherhood of Steel, knights in the Capital Wasteland are not responsible for manufacturing weapons. Instead, the rank is a purely military one. The backbone of the Brotherhood of Steel, knights make up the squads that Paladins lead into battle. Knights guard the bases and outposts as well as watch over and train initiates. Knights are moderately armed, with mostly AER9 laser rifles and R91 assault rifles.
