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