Vertibots are robots encountered in Appalachia in 2102.


Vertibots are an automated version of the standard vertibirds. Besides their autonomous nature, they appear to not be significantly different from piloted versions. Vertibots are usually found escorting cargobots and will turn hostile if either the cargobot or the vertibot itself is attacked by the player character.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Vertibots can be summoned by vertibot signal grenades to assist the player character in combat. However, the assisting variant has lower stats. Vertibots are resilient to ballistic attacks but explosive and energy weapons prove effective against them.

They are most often found near former military camps and Brotherhood of Steel installations, such as Camp Venture and Fort Defiance, and in the Mire and Savage Divide regions of Appalachia.

  • A vertibot landing pad with a crate of vertibot signal grenades can be found just outside the entrance to the converted munitions factory.
  • Some of the public workshops come with a vertibot landing pad as part of the area the workshop covers, such as the Poseidon Energy Plant yard or Wade Airport, but will need to be repaired to spawn the vertibot, which will defend the workshop and general area until all threats are eliminated, at which point it will return to the landing pad to repair and recover health until attacked again, or it is destroyed, requiring the landing pad to be repaired again to spawn a new one.
