Welcome to another Fallout 76 guide! This time, I will delve into the best power armor available in Fallout 76 as of 2024. Power armor is an essential aspect of gameplay, offering protection and various bonuses to enhance your survivability and combat effectiveness in the Wasteland.

Fallout 76: Which Are The Best Power Armor Sets Available In 2024?

Power Armor Sets Overview

Among all the Fallout 76 Items, there are several power armor sets, each with its own strengths and special attributes. Here are the sets you can find in the game:

  • T-45 Power Armor
  • T-51b Power Armor
  • T-60 Power Armor
  • T-65 Power Armor
  • X-01 Power Armor
  • Ultracite Power Armor
  • Strangler Heart Power Armor
  • Raider Power Armor
  • Hellcat Power Armor
  • Excavator Power Armor
  • Union Power Armor

While every power armor set offers some level of protection and bonuses, a few stand out because of their exceptional attributes. Here are the best power armor sets in Fallout 76 as of 2024, along with reasons why they are considered top-tier:

T-65 Power Armor

The first one I would recommend is the T-65. It may not be the best-looking set, but out of all the sets, it has the highest resistance for both physical and energy damage, plus a substantial 90% rad reduction. To obtain this set, you need to find the Vault 79. Teleport there and look for an NPC named Regs, who sells the plans for each piece for Gold Bullion.

To get Gold Bullion, you can do the Wastelanders daily quests or complete certain public events to earn treasury notes. These notes can be taken to a gold press machine in the Whitespring Resort mall to convert into Gold Bullion. Keep in mind, the vendor has a daily limit of 400, so plan accordingly.

Union Power Armor

Another power armor set, currently unobtainable because of a bug, is the Union power armor set. This will likely be fixed in the next major update. You used to get it from the Season 10 Scoreboard, but now it seems to be available from the Expeditions vendor for 120 stamps per part.

This set offers 150% poison resistance and a 75 boost to carry weight, making it perfect for low HP builds or bloodied builds. The poison resistance is particularly useful in endgame scenarios where poison clouds can be lethal.

Excavator Power Armor

The Excavator Power Armor set may not be the prettiest, but it's incredibly functional. You can obtain it early on through the Miner Miracles quest, which unlocks at Level 20. This set provides 90% rad reduction, 42% damage reduction, and a +100 carry weight bonus.

Additionally, it gives you four times the yield when mining ores, making it perfect for resource farming. It's an excellent choice for Hoarders or those who enjoy gathering their own materials.

Hellcat Power Armor

The last set I’ll discuss is one I most recommend - the Hellcat Power Armor. You can get this set by completing the Brotherhood of Steel quest line. Regardless of your choices in the main story, you will obtain this power armor. Each piece gives you +2% ballistic damage resistance, making it one of the tankiest power armors in Fallout 76.

It's ideal for max health builds, especially if you roll the Overeaters on all pieces to maximize tankiness. While it doesn't boost carry weight, you can modify the arms or legs to increase carry capacity.
