The Stealth Boy is a personal device that generates a modulating refraction field. Using it effectively renders the wearer invisible for a short period of time.VDSG Catalogue No.9687

A Stealth Boy is a consumable item in Fallout 4.


The Stealth Boy is a portable device that, when activated, renders the user invisible for 30 seconds. Unlike other variants of the Stealth Boy, this version isn't worn on the wrist. Instead, it is activated by hand and is worn on the waist.



They can be found scattered all over the Commonwealth or they can be sold by merchants.

  • Federal ration stockpile. After entering, turn right at the first intersection of hallways (with the construction light, just past the two can traps). Go down the stairs to the metal walkway, then jump across the gap. The Stealth Boy is by the two skeletons in the room on the other side of the gap.
  • Up to three can be found on Kellogg after defeating him in Fort Hagen Command Center.
  • Hardware Town, upstairs behind the locked door. The key is found in a chest a few rooms down.
  • Hester's Consumer Robotics, in a case on the racking in the entrance room.
  • National Guard training yard, upstairs in the smokey room. It is near the large trunk.
  • Park Street station, down the stairs, straight across all the tracks and in a Novice locked room on the left after reaching the far wall. Once inside, there is an Expert safe towards the back of the short tunnel; the device is located within.

  • While still capable of aiming with scopes after activating a Stealth Boy, glow sights and reflex sights will be cloaked as well (and thus unusable) for the duration of the effect. Therefore, aiming at distant targets will become more difficult.
  • With Deacon's companion perk, Cloak & Dagger, the duration of Stealth Boy effects last 40% longer.
  • If one is given to Deacon, Cait, or X6-88, they will use it in combat.
  • Activating the Stealth Boy from within the Pip Boy immediately causes the Pip Boy to exit and time to become unpaused. This is unusual as normally activation of an item within the Pip Boy does not cause the Pip Boy to exit.
