Legate's armor is a piece of armor worn by Legate Lanius.
The armor appears to be a full suit of heavy gauge steel and offers full body protection. It also has a cloak in excellent condition, but the armor itself bears numerous battle scars and the helmet is missing half of the left horn. The Legate's suit appears originally crafted in the style of Roman armor (the mask modeled after
calvalry masks), in contrast to other Legion armor which consists of repurposed pre-War sports equipment.
Marked beast helmet - a crude version of the Legate's helmet constructed with Divide metal. It doesn't cover the face.
Marked beast eyes helmet - a crude version of the Legate's helmet constructed with Divide metal. It only covers the eyes.
Marked beast face helmet - a crude version of the Legate's helmet constructed with Divide metal. It has a different face, half of it has been scorched and it does not feature a beard. Marked beast tribal helmet - a crude version of the Legate's helmet constructed with Divide metal. It bears the closest resemblance to the normal helmet.
While the Legate's helmet can be collected upon his death, his armor cannot be equipped without the use of console commands.
After obtaining it, there is only have a limited amount of time to use it, due to the story ending immediately after.
While wearing the Legate's armor after getting it with console commands, the
Courier will not be attacked by the NCR because it is not listed as faction armor, as it was never truly meant to be worn. The armor will not show up in the inventory because it isn't marked as playable.
Concept art of the Legate's armor can be found in the Collectors Edition of the
Official New Vegas Guide book. In terms of protection, it is the second strongest armor seen in the Legion, next to Legion centurion armor.
