Fallout 76: How To Equip Armor & Clothes Items


GamingFallout 76: How To Equip Armor & Clothes Items

As you search the wasteland and complete missions in Fallout 76, you’ll find/unlock new apparel items. These could be purely cosmetic items such as outfits or armor pieces which will offer some much needed protection.

You’ll find these items in your pip-boy, where they will be using up some of your carry weight allowance. I recommend that you sell any that you don’t plan to use by finding a vendor.

Below, we have a quick guide which shows where to find apparel, clothing and armor pieces that you’ve picked up in Fallout 76. Whilst we’ve covered more guides for the game here.

Equipping Armor & Clothes

To start, open up your Pip Boy. On PC, you can do this by pressing TAB. Whilst on PS4, its Circle and B on Xbox One. You will see a screen similar to the one below.

Select an item to equip

At the top of the screen, head to the ‘Item’ section. You can navigate there by using the bumper buttons on your controller or just clicking with your mouse on PC. Head to the ‘Apparel’ section below.

Here, you’ll see all the armor pieces and clothing you’re currently carrying. You can use the sorting to filter the items by their protection, weight and value. Just select an item to equip it.
