Power Armor has always been an integral part to Fallout, allowing you to explore the wasteland in a new, lore friendly way. Wearing Power Armor makes you stronger, more resistant to damage and allows you to traverse through the game world quicker.
Whilst there are many sets and customization options already in the game, there’s no reason we can’t add more with mods. The community has done an amazing job of modelling and texturing new sets, some brand new and some inspired from other games such as Skyrim and Bioshock.
Below, we’ve put together a list of some of the best Power Armor mods available for Fallout 4 on PC. All the buttons below link back to Nexus Mods and the list below is in no particular order. If you want to check out some more Fallout 4 content including best of lists, you can view our dedicated area here!
1. Enclave X-02 Power Armor
Remember the Enclave Power Armor from Fallout 3? Well with this mod, you can add an all new and improved version straight into Fallout 4. After installation, you can find this armor set at Red Rocket Gas Station in the Glowing Sea.
Once owned, it can later be upgraded and modified using the default options. However, there is a new modification called Storm Servos. Storm Servos allows you to move at faster speeds inside the Power Armor at the cost of health.
2. T-49 Armor of the Storyteller
Another Power Armor set is the T-49 Set, Armor of the Storyteller. It can be used at any part of the game, whether early or late game. Whilst also offering the same modifications as other default armor sets, with the addition of 2 new subtypes.
The first subtype is Desert Recon, you will have superior recon sensors and the armor will use solar power in sunlight, not draining your fusion cores. Secondly, we have Winter Death which allows you to see enemies through walls and have better aim due to arm stabilizing.
3. TES-51 Power Armor (Skyrim Inspired)
Are you a lover of Skyrim? If the answer is yes, then you’ll love the TES-51, Armor of the Dragonborn. A set which is designed to create a crossover between the two games. You can find this armor in a building called Bethesda Comics near Wilson Atomatoys HQ.
The TES-51 set is compatible with all default mods and upgrades currently in Fallout 4. Although there are some extra features included with this set including 6 new paint jobs, 3 weapons, 1 new location, 3 custom magazines and 3 custom loading screens.
4. Hellfire X-03 Power Armor
Another Power Armor set that has been brought over from Fallout 3 is the Hellfire Power Armor, which is specifically from the Broken Steel DLC. Unfortunately, the developer hasn’t provided much information on whether the mod includes any unique modifications, features or the actual location of the armor.
5. Submersible Power Armor
This next Power Armor set looks incredible, which is mostly inspired by the Big Daddy from the Bioshock franchise. As well as the set of armor, there are some modifications and unique objects included alongside it that allow you to travel underwater.
There are some hints on where to find the pieces. To find the Rosie set, look for a note at the noodle bar in Diamond City. The drill and Alpha set are found at the Nahant Oceanological Society while the Bouncer set can be found near some crashed boats to the north of the laboratory in Nahant.
6. Liberty Power Armor
The final set we’re going to talk about in this list is the Liberty Power Armor. There are several skins and headlamp colors to choose from currently, as well as multiple unique upgrades.
There are 3 different ways to obtain the armor. It can be found at the Sentinel Site Nuke Storage room, craft it at a chemistry bench or spawn it using console commands. There is also a list of mods in the post which work alongside the Liberty Armor set.
7. Worsin’s Immersive Power Armor Garage
Moving away from new sets of armor, we’ll look at actual mods that enhance Fallout 4’s Power Armor. Starting with Worsin’s Garage which adds new paint styles, decals and overhauls Power Armor in general.
In total, there are 106 new paint styles which work with both armor and jetpacks with over 100 new decals. The developer claims that there are 424 new variations of paints and decals. There are also 6 unique specializations which change factors such as speed, damage and durability.
8. Consistent Power Armor
This mod makes many changes to the Power Armor system in Fallout 4, with most of the changes being related to paint jobs. Some of the changes it makes is allowing you to apply every paint job to every set, add a shiny metal texture to the T-45 and X-01 and adds a star to the army paint-job. There is a full list of changes on the mods page.
9. Power Armor Delivery
Power Armor Delivery does as you’d expect. It allows you to craft beacons in the Fallout 4 game world which will summon your last used Power Armor to your position. The developer admits that it’s not very lore friendly, nor balanced. However it’s still very useful to have.
10. Better Power Armor
Finally, we have another Power Armor overhaul mod. Each power armor part covers a specific body part and will fully absorb the damage that the bodypart receives from the sources ballistic and laser weapon types and while no armor part is broken, you will take no damage. There are many more changes which mostly affect damage received.
