This shining armor provides superior protection against energy attacks. The three Tesla Attraction Coil Rods disperse a large percentage of directed energy attacks.— Fallout 2 In-game description

Tesla armor is a type of metal armor that makes its wearer resistant to energy weapon attacks.

Background

Main article: Tesla armor

Unlike the basic metal armor it strongly resembles, this armor is an actual pre-War military design.[1] Its three Tesla Attraction Coils disperse a large percent of directed attacks. However, since its protection against conventional firearms is comparable to the post-War metal armor, it was not widely employed by the United States military, although some suits made their way to National Guard depots and from there to the wastes.[1][2][3][4]

Characteristics

Tesla armor is normally the last armor obtained by the Vault Dweller in Fallout. It is almost exclusively designed for the final battle against the Master. Its extremely high DR for laser weapons (90%) renders the Master's laser almost harmless.

Locations

Fallout

Third floor of the Cathedral.

Fallout 2

Stores in San Francisco.

However, its protection against impact attacks falls far short of what its military designers were looking for. Still, some surplus suits ofTeslaIn-game spelling Armor found their way into National Guard Armories, and from there to the Wastes. Tesla Armor gives the wearer a 20% bonus to their Radiation Resistance."
