The power armor station is a constructible settlement object, world object and crafting station in Fallout 4.


The power armor frame comes in two styles. Firstly there is the box frame with two long metal legs, which extends up are the rear to support two overhead bars, which can be adjusted in height by two hydraulic pistons. The second is a two piece unit, comprising of two struts with a wide base. Only the former style of the two can be built in a player character owned settlement.

The Sole Survivor can use the station to attach, detach and repair armor mods when a power armor frame is installed at the station.

Using the stationEdit

  • Exit armor near, but not backed into, the station.
  • Broken segments are transferred to inventory, though they will be displayed in the list of segments when the station is in use.
  • Repairing a broken segment will increase its weight from 0 back to the full weight of the piece.
  • Use the "Equip" option to place an armor segment on a frame. Segments can come from any set of armor.
  • If the station is near a workbench, repairs and modifications will draw from the workbench inventory as well as player inventory. Freestanding stations will draw from the player's inventory alone.


To modify power armor, the Sole Survivor needs power armor parts, the required materials as well as the corresponding perks (Armorer, Science! and Blacksmith).


With the Local Leader rank 2 and the Armorer rank 1 perks the player character can build power armor stations within settlements.

Settlement locationsEdit

These are available to the player character when they are aligned with the settlement. Using them draws on the inventory of the settlement workshop.

World locationsEdit

These are available to the player character at any time. Using these stations draws on the player's inventory and what may be stored in the station itself.


There are two types of power armor stations in the Commonwealth, one is the most common frame type, which you can build at settlements and is seen in the menu screen, which uses a frame and hydraulics to hold up the power armor. The second type is found on the Prydwen, and other places, and seems to use magnetic fields to hold up the power armor.


  • PCIcon pc When the Sole Survivor uses power armor station and leaves, they will have additional carried weight equal to that of the weight of the heaviest power armor part (e.g If power armor left hand weighs 17.2 lbs, they will have additional 17.2 weight of carried items). It can be fixed easily by reequipping any part of clothing, though the permament solution doesn't exist.
