Linden's armor is a moderately resilient suit of power armor, with the added bonus of giving an increase of 5 in the Big Guns skill, an exception to the normal T-45d power armor modifiers.
It can be obtained from him by using the Laurel's liniment on Harold's heart during the Oasis quest. When the player character finishes the quest, they can talk to Branchtender Linden for their reward.
- Despite visually being identical to normal Outcast power armor, the game treats it as a standard faction-less variant of T-45d. As such, Protector Casdin will not confiscate Linden's if the player character is wearing it while talking to him.
- Likewise, the Outcasts that appear in the Operation: Anchorage add-on do not recognize Linden's armor as their own, and will refer to the player character as a "local" when they wear it.
- Linden's armor, the Bombshell armor, and Lag-Bolt's combat armor are the only three armors in the game that enhance the Big Guns skill.
- Power armor can only be worn if the player character has gained the Power Armor Training perk, either by talking to Paladin Gunny in the Citadel, by starting the Take it Back! quest, or by completing the Anchorage Reclamation simulation.
