Metal armor is an armor set in Fallout 76.

Characteristics

Metal armor consists of a helmet and five separate body pieces in three distinct sections: chest, arms and legs. As with all other armor pieces, each can be worn under clothing. The metal helmet appears as a simple metal helmet with no inside lining and an adjustable leather strap around the brim.

Notes

  • Pocketed and deep pocketed modifications change the visual model of armor piece with this mod. These two modifications add small pockets (see gallery).
  • Modifying metal armor with any material modification will change the skin used by this armor piece. It is overwritten when paint modification is applied to this model. Helmet doesn't have material slot, but instead material modifications are used by paint slot. They don't give any bonuses, but change the skin of helmet (see gallery).
  • Scrapping any metal armor body piece, except for the helmet, has a small chance to learn a metal armor mod or a helmet mod.
  • Alloyed metal chest modification gives much more Energy Resistance than any other metal armor modification.
