The Scorched Sierra power armor is a piece of armor in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road.


The scorched Sierra power armor is a suit of T-45d power armor that has been modified with a NCR theme, worn by Colonel Royez. A bear's head covers the left shoulder alongside two star-shaped medallions. Glowing green panels appear on the back and forearms, and several parts of the armor have gold accents.

Unlike NCR salvaged power armor, scorched Sierra power armor requires Power Armor Training to wear. It provides a Damage Threshold of 24 and a bonus of Fire Resistance +25 and STR +1. It is unique in giving a health regeneration bonus of 2 HP per second. It can be repaired with T-45d and T-51b power armor variants, as well as marked men trooper and patrol armor.



  • The player character needs to nuke the NCR at the end of Lonesome Road to open up the Long 15 and gain access to the armor.
  • Despite its appearance, the suit is not considered faction armor, therefore it can be safely worn in any location without repercussions.
  • The armor's listed effect "HP +2" grants the wearer regenerative health, at a rate of 2 HP per second. This effect applies to non-player characters, such as companions, who wear the armor.
  • The armor lacks the -2 Agility of base T-45d power armor and only has +1 Strength compared to the base variant that has +2.
  • The armor's health regenerating effect combines with the Monocyte Breeder to allow for more effective healing.

Behind the scenes

Unused resources exist for a matching helmet to go with the Scorched Sierra power armor, featuring a green glow coming from the visor area. The mesh and corresponding textures are fully complete but were not incorporated into any armor or other console-obtainable item.

Though the bug affects the armor, the actual cause is the EMP effects themselves, which only check against a hardcoded set of armors rather than the game's dynamically updated "AllPowerArmor" form list.[verified]
