Pipboy is an actual person version of Vault Boy, who could be encountered by the Warrior as a joke character. He may join the Brotherhood of Steel and fight as a squad member, but is not considered an official member by the Brotherhood, due to not being a normal person (which in this case is to say he does not fit into any known species of the wasteland).

Pipboy (special encounter)

Availability[edit | edit source]

Pipboy becomes available after one finds him in the Pipboy special encounter. He joins the group when spoken to if the player character has fewer than 5 members. He will go away and appear in the recruits pool if the player character has 5 members. If one has 6 members, he will do nothing. He will join the player character even if their level is lower than his when he is first found him.

Attributes[edit | edit source]

  • He has a Perk rate of 3 at the time he is first discovered, and he is level 8 with 3 perks. This is likely due to the fact that PipBoy cannot change stance; by granting Flexible as a freebie, the player character is protected from later wasting a gained perk on it.
  • He moves considerably slower than other characters when not in turn-based mode.
  • He has no biographical text in the character screen or in the recruitment pool.

Inventory[edit | edit source]

Apparel Weapon Other items

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The game refers to the recruitable character as CORE_pipboy in the party bar, combat log, and recruits pool.
  • Pipboy is encountered severely wounded and can be healed using medical items.

  • "You're staring at me."
  • "Gosh, I sure would like some friends."
  • "What the hell are you lookin' at?"
