Everyone wants power armor in Fallout 3. And by everyone I mean everyone with a brain. For those who don’t, well you’re just not RPing correctly. Ok. On top of it looking cool there are great bonus’s to energy weapon’s, damage resistance, rad resistance, str and charisma bonus’s. In game there are currently a few types of Power Armor. First though you’ll have to get the training to wear it. I got my power armor before Operation Anchorage came out which rewards you with the Winterized Power Armor. It comes with a whopping 10 million hp making it virtually impossible to have to repair it. By doing the Operation Anchorage route you’ll get the Power Armor Perk and wont have to do the normal chain to get it. Although the first way is part of the Main Quest chain. You’ll come across it anyways just your choice. I’ll take the easy route if it’s open.
The only caveat is you have to run through the anchorage sim without any power armor. That’s probably not too big of an issue though. If you do it the normal means (why are you reading this go buy Operation Anchorage already!), you’ll have to go through a series of quests on the main story line. It occurs after “waters” of life on this quest chain. Once you gain the ability to wear the power armor.
One doing that quest you’ll trigger a cool event that I wont name and you’ll start to see Enclave Soliders and their juicy Power Armor. Most will just be the Normal Enclave Armor, but some will have the Tesla Power armor with the electrical shoulders. Check it out!
The Hellfire Armor, the last of the enclave power armor appears in the Broken Steel xpac in abudance. There are also two more instances of getting the power armor in the game. One is in “The Pitt” DlC, purchaseable with 100 steel ignot’s to Everett on the side quest Mill Worker. If you are a quest and achievement junky like myself you can also find the T-51b armor through the quest “You gotta Shoot ‘Em in the head”
Hope that helps you in your quest to find the power armor! Feel free to send any questions into us and we’d be happy to share our thoughts! firstname.lastname@example.org
