Fallout: New Vegas Unique Armor

RPG’s are all about finding cool stuff, and the scavenging nature of Fallout’s post-apocalyptic milieu makes finding that stuff even more enticing. There’s so much out there, though, that it can sometimes be hard to separate the wheat from the chaff. Use this list of Unique Armors to decide what’s worth sussing out and what isn’t!

Remnants Power Helmet/Armor - The helmet can be acquired individually in the Silver Peak Mine (beware the Legendary Cazador!). The armor is found individually on the Deathclaw Promontory, on a dead body, surrounded by Deathclaws. You can get the full suit of armor by completing the quest “Auld Lang Syne” (kill Orion Moreno and take it, or convince him to stay and get it from Daisy or kill Cannibal Johnson and take it from him when he storms out).

Gannon Family Tesla Armor/Helmet – Complete the Side Quest “Auld Lang Syne,” and either convince Arcade Gannon not to fight (he gives it to you) or fail to convince him and then kill him for it.

It is possible, though it’s obviously only available at the very end of the game. To get Oliver’s armor, you’ll have to kill him, and that means turning him hostile. If you side with the NCR, turning him hostile is not possible, but there are three other methods that will result in you sporting his stylish jodhpur pants.

1. Side with Caesar. This makes Oliver the main antagonist in the game. Fight your way to him at the Dam, make sure he doesn’t surrender, then corner him in his office, get past the force fields and his 6 Heavy Trooper guards, and loot his corpse for the the armor.

2. Side with Mr. House. Once you defeat Legate Lanius, Oliver will show up and start throwing his weight around. Piss him off, and he’ll attack. It will be hard to survive the onslaught launched by his 5 guards (who wield Brush Rifles) before the Securitrons come to your aid, but if you’re successful, you can loot his corpse and take his outfit (and his hat!)

3. Go Independent. This method is almost identical to 2. Beat Lanius, piss off Oliver, and survive the ensuing fight. Then loot the body. For a bit of fun, you can talk him into backing down, then order Yes Man to throw him off the dam. This results in an amusing cutscene, but you can’t get the armor this way.

Hope this helps!
