Scientist outfits are pieces of clothing in Fallout 3. They provide a bonus of +5 to Science.

All scientist outfits can be repaired with the scientist outfit, lab technician outfit, Enclave scientist outfit, Vault lab uniform, and Doctor Li's outfit.


Scientist outfit

The scientist outfit has a generic "lab gear" look and is found on various non-player characters in the Capital Wasteland. The male version consists of a white, grimy lab coat and white latex surgical gloves, over a dark-blue formal shirt and tie, with dark-blue pants, and brown shoes. The female version also consists of a white, grimy lab coat and white latex surgical gloves, but instead are over a dark-blue dress and black high-heeled shoes.

They are worn by James during Baby Steps, the ghoul scientist at SatCom Array NW-05a, the scientist blowing himself up from a truck near Broadcast tower KB5, Doctor Preston, Janice Kaplinski, Sandra in Haven, and the last few are worn by 3 or 4 Project Purity scientists.

Lab technician outfit

The lab technician outfit is similar to the scientist outfit, with a noticeable difference being a teal undershirt and beige pants/tie for the male, and a teal dress for the female, instead of a dark blue. It is worn by scientists in Rivet City.

The easiest way to obtain it would be from Anna Holt in the Rivet City science lab. Doctor Lesko encountered during Those! and Doctor Banfield are also wearing one of these.

Enclave scientist outfit

The Enclave scientist outfit shares its model with the radiation suit, but the texture is white with an orange-tinted plexiglas helmet. It is worn only by Enclave scientists, who do not respawn when killed. Therefore, there are only so many of them. Use the other scientist outfits to repair them.

Several Enclave camp locations may spawn a scientist with this outfit.

Lab coat (Broken Steel)

Worn by the Enclave doctor in the add-on Broken Steel. This outfit is similar to the scientist outfit, except that the female version has a teal dress instead of a dark blue one.
