In Fallout 4, when it comes to damage extenuation, there is nothing that can be compared to Power Armors. These heavy structures not only mitigate damage, but also provide sheer raw power.

For more help on Fallout 4, read our Settlements Locations, Fallout 4 Character Builds, Companions Locations and Magazines Locations Guide.

Fallout 4 Power Armor Locations

Power Armors can be constructed using multiple exchangeable and customizable components. Doing so requires a lot of resources; however, you can render the process a tad easier using certain perks.

Once inside Power Armor, you instantly acquire+11 strength, radiation resistance, negate falling damage, and even stomp on enemies.

Furthermore, some Power Armors also support jet-pack allowing you to reach otherwise inaccessible areas. Then there are several other mods which increase the base effects.

However, do note that you need a constant supply of Fusion Cores to maintain the Power Armor up and running. In order to repair Power Armor, you should maintain an ample quantity of items such as Aluminum, Copper, and other resources.

In addition to this, when inside Power Armor, you lose all other boosts offered by pre-equipped items. Finally, always make sure to remove the Fusion Core as soon as you eject it to prevent it from being stolen.

Understanding Power Armor Frame

You need to have a frame in order to craft Power Armor, however, do bear in mind that you cannot carry these frames. But even if you simply equip a frame, you acquire +60 damage resistance and +60 energy resistance.

Once you’ve a frame, you can combine different parts to create your ideal suit. As for earning frames, you need to purchase them from vendors, find scattered across the world, and from completing quests.
