The Red Scare Power Armor has everything it needs to crush the capitalists.Atomic Shop description

Red Scare paint is a weapon, armor, and workshop object paint scheme in Fallout 76.


The skin changes the appearance of the items entirely, regardless of the item to which it is applied. The power armor paint includes unique sound effects and music that occur while entering the armor as well as while engaging enemies.

  1. Chris Ortega: "Fallout76 Communist power armor concepts. I guess these have been in game for a while. These were super fun to do, I was pretty bummed that they didn’t want to use the one with the built in hat."
