Oh, yes...Let's all beat up on the robot!— Mr. Handy

Mr. Handies are robots found in Appalachia.

Background

This section is transcluded from Mister Handy. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

The first Mister Handy was introduced to the robotics market in 2037 by General Atomics International, as a general-purpose construction and maintenance unit.[citation needed] Used widely on both the American and Mexican markets, especially after the Mexico City earthquake of 2042.[citation needed]

The units only required one major hardware update in 2039, to eliminate a bug causing interference in the operation of the multiple arms.[citation needed] The robots utilized Calpower 238B nuclear power units and self-maintenance modes. To minimize maintenance overhead, each Mr. Handy was designed to perform its nuclear fuel replacement and radiation cleansing.[citation needed][1]

The programming was incapable of learning or executing complex tasks without extensive programming. In order to maintain their market share, General Atomics entered into a joint venture with RobCo Industries, combining its talent with General Atomics' experience in robotics.[1][2][3] The resulting model was capable of self-programming and initiative, utilizing three arms. Despite its sophistication, it was also cost-effective, making it the perfect domestic servant robot.[4][5] The success of this model resulted in the development of several additional models, including dedicated medical and military versions.[6][7]

Characteristics

Gameplay attributes

Limbs and other parts of the Mr. Handies will fall/break off when they take damage. This can reveal concealed parts in addition to making them virtually useless. Mr. Handies and their other fellow robot brethren have three different weapons; two of them being ranged and the other a melee. It is possible to shoot the equipped weapon off and force them to switch weapons if one is using V.A.T.S.. Their preferred weapons are a short-range flamethrower, a buzz blade, and their grabber claw, versus the energy and ballistic weapons used by their Mister Gutsy counterparts.

FO76 Mr Farmhand.png

The Mr. Farmhands are, more or less, a standard Mr. Handy model with a pale green paint job, with some variants being a dark brown. They are typically encountered on the roads from Vault 76 to Flatwoods, among other various areas in the Forest region, mainly around the Vault-Tec Agricultural Research Center. They can also be found, as their names might suggest, at a few local farms, and if participating in a successful farm event, Mr. Farmhands will come to the aid of the player character. The Mr. Farmhands at Orwell Orchards wear cloth hats. These versions of Mr. Handy replaces the flamethrower with an energy weapon, giving them a ranged attack weapon to use in combat.

Mr. Bandit

FO76 Mr. Bandit.jpg

In the Bandit Bot random encounter, it would seem that an innocent Mr. Handy robot asks the Vault Dweller for help, and then demands something valuable, threatening to attack. Throwing away an item of low value, such as trash, will calm the robot. Then the robot will inform them to remove it. Refusal to throw out an item or unwillingness to leave will cause the robot to become hostile and attack.
