Notes[edit | edit source]

  • There are two options when loaded into your Pip-Boy, and the third when loaded into a Protectron terminal:
    • "Disengage Safety Sensors" reverts the Protectron to view all entities as hostile, including the Sole Survivor.
    • "Override Alliance Parameters" sets the Protectron to be friendly towards the Survivor and any companions, and hostile to their enemies.
    • "Hijack VIP Escort Protocols" sets the Protectron to be a temporary follower. This option will not be present when loaded into the Pip-Boy, only when loaded on the terminal connected to the charging station after the Protectron has been deployed.
  • This can be played on any terminal or your Pip-Boy but will only affect Protectrons with an uplink/downlink to the terminal you are using.
  • Protectrons controlled by the player do not regain health over time or after fast travel.
  • Protectrons controlled by the player will waddle towards the player unfeasibly fast if the player moves too far away.
