Fallout 76: Do You know All About These Special Power Armors?

Posted: May 20, 2024

I hope you’re having a fantastic day today. I’m going to be talking about those special Power Armor now. What I said only represents my personal thoughts.

Purchasing more Fallout 76 Bottle Caps in the game can double your armor power.

Let’s get into it here.

Before we start talking about Power Armors, I just want to say that the best effect on Power Armor is definitely Overeaters. You cannot get Unyielding on Power Armor and Overeaters is definitely the way to go if you want to be more tanky.

Fallout 76: Do You know All About These Special Power Armors?

The Reason Why I Chose X-01

Aristocrats and Bolstering, even Vanguards aren’t too bad. But Overeaters is the clear winner. Now for T-45, T-51,T-60 and Raider Power Armor. These are pretty much like the low tier Power Armors. T-60 is like a beefed up T-45. Raider is probably the worst one if I had to pick. The T-51 is actually horrible for radiation. It’s good for ballistic but horrible for radiation. And T-45 is probably best for beginners considering the level you can get it at.

Now a good decent Power Armor is X-01 I think.

This is one of the better ones that you can get at the beginning. Especially if you can get this Power Armor for free and I think it looks pretty snazzy. I’ve always liked X-01 myself. You can get a free set of the plans for it from Whitespring Bunker.

How Can Players Use X-01?

Now you will have to be a general in order to have access to this. I do highly recommend you do this if you haven’t and from the service entrance.

And you, like I said, you won’t be able to go into here until you’ve become a General. It’s really not that hard. It just might take you a little. There is a guide on it and once you’re able to come up here click on the schematic and then Prototype Power Armor schematics. And then it’ll basically give you the plans for the X-01 and then you can build one at your leisure. Just want to say the X-01 is best for Energy Resistance.

But if you have Electric Absorption on, like you really don’t have to worry about energy damage. I should say it’ll pretty much just keep your fusion core is full is what I was going to say.

The Use Of Excavator

Another great beginner Power Armor is Excavator, now you can get this one at a fairly early level. I wouldn’t suggest doing the quest until you’re level 25. Because you can’t craft it. But you’re just going to come over here to Garrahan Mining Headquarters, like I said at level 25preferably.

And then you can just come up to this sign and it will start the quest for Excavator for you. And the good thing about Excavator is that the 3 plus Mining Yield when left and right arms are used in tandem. So if you have the left and the right arm on, I don’t think you need a full set. Maybe you do actually just make sure you have the full set of Excavator on. If you are going to go collect some Lead ore is probably the best example for ammo.

It does work with every other ore except Ultracite. You will get a lot more collecting it with Excavator. Excluding Ultracite,the ore.

Disadvantages Of Ultrasite Power Armor

Ultrasite Power Armor, which is a kind of the opposite to X-01, where it’s more for ballistic Resistance. But this just isn’t the best Power Armor in my opinion. Will it get the job done? It definitely will, but you’re going to need Ultracite to craft it. You’re going to need Ultracite to repair it and you’re going to need Ultracitefor the mods.

And I just want to say there are better Power Armors. I would go with X-01 or Excavator as a beginner until you can get some of the later Power Armors that I’m about to talk about.

Hellcat Power Armor Advantages

Including Hellcat, awesome Power Armor depending how you look at it. This could be one of the best Power Armors in the game. Compiled with Electric Absorption because the ballistic Resistance on this thing is awesome. It minus 2% damage from Ballistic weapons. Now keep in mind, this adds up over five pieces or six pieces, actually.

To give you 12% damage reduction from Ballistic weapons, so regular ballistic weapons are really not going to do too much to you. You’re going to have so much time to stimpak and that’s even if a bunch of super mutants are shooting at you. And like I said, combined with Electric Absorption, you got the best of both worlds.

Now to get Hellcat, you will have to do a quest at Fort Atlas with the Brotherhood.You will get a Hellcat at the end of it.

The Usage Of Strangler Power Armor

Strangler Power Armor. And the thing about Strangler heart is just a little to craft it like it’s going to cost you some bullion like T-65 does, but you also are going to need Vault scrap steel. I think it is as well to craft it and this Power Armor just isn’t as good as it used to be after Nerf. It’s still pretty good. It still gets the job done, and it’s definitely one of the better looking Power Armors for sure.

I wouldn’t be putting on any skins over this or anything when I’m making it. It just looks great and you don’t see a lot of people with it. So if you did want to make this Power Armor. It’s definitely a decent one, but there are better ones.

Now my pick for the two best Power Armors is probably T-65 and the Union even Hellcat. But T-65 and Union are just amazing Power Armors. T-65 is has the highest damage Resistances, and it’s just literally a tank.

It’s very easy to get. Just need to save up some bullion. It’s very similar to Secret Service as and you just get it with bullion and you follow the main quest to unlock it. And it’s just a tank like this Behemoth could do nothing to me. He actually stopped hitting me after a while, probably realized he couldn’t do anything to me.

I’ve used T-65 for a while, absolutely. Love it and like I said, you just do the main quest involving Crater and Foundation. It’ll eventually bring you over here to talk to Regs and you will be able to buy the plan with Gold bullion.

Union Power Armor

Now, Union Power Armor. This is definitely one of the best Power Armors in the game. I use this one and T-65 it’s just pretty much what I have on me at the time. But the good thing about the Union Power Armor is it has a Poison Resistance and a plus 75 carry weight. That’s what makes it so good as those two unique benefits to having a full set are just amazing. Now, you can usually get Union Power Armor at Whitespring Refuge by using stand to purchase it from Jessup here.

But unfortunately it is not available to get which I’m sorry to tell you. We need to wait till the upcoming update in June. I think we will be able to get it so hopefully. I wish you could. It really needs to be fixed. Now if you’ve already purchased the plans for um Union Power Armor and you can’t craft it for some reason.

You see how it says Toggle on lockable at the button. Toggle unlockable and then you should be able to craft Union Power Armor and again just to show like it’s mostly used for people. I would say that are worried about Poison Resistance probably for lower Health Power Armor builds, but it definitely helps against Poison Resistance.

So if you wanted to use T-65, that might be the best answer for you. That’s my opinion on all Power Armors everybody.

I hope it helps you maybe pick a Power Armor that you want to use.
