關於an overview of metal armor variants in all games,參見metal armor


The metal armor and matching metal helmet is a piece of armor in Fallout 3.


A craft metal armor created from a variety of scrap pieces put on a black leather armor. The metal helmet is similar in shape to a motorcycle helmet, though with a dirty silver color instead of white, as well as no neck wrap or goggles for males, and for females, the helmet is made of rusted metal and is open faced, similar in shape to combat helmets (although it still muffles the user's voice while worn). The shoulder plates have metal spikes welded onto them.


  • Gamma shield armor The Pitt (add-on) - The gamma shield armor isn't unique, but does have a few benefits over regular metal armor. The gamma shield armor adds to Radiation Resistance, but also weighs 15 more pounds.
  • Samurai armor Mothership Zeta (add-on) - The samurai armor, worn by Toshiro Kago, has a lower DR than metal armor, but increases Melee Weapons and total damage done by those weapons by 10.
  • Apocalypse gladiator armor - Apocalypse gladiator armor and apocalypse gladiator helmet are an armor set cut from Fallout 3. They are identical with metal armor and metal helmet in terms of looks and stats except for an increased durability (75 instead of 50 item HP for the helmet and 1200 instead of 500 for the armor).
