The Metal Master armor is a unique piece of armor in the Fallout 3 add-on The Pitt.


This armor was created special order for a Hole fighter, focusing on providing protection from gunfire. However that it did not help him after he got pushed off of the Pitt Bridge.[1]


Metal Master armor is a unique variant of raider throwdown armor. Like the other throwdown armors, it is comprised of components from metal armor and raider sadist armor. It is only repairable with leather armor and provides a damage resistance of 36 as well as bonuses of 10 to Unarmed and Energy Weapons whilst incurring a penalty of 1 to Agility.


It is a reward for bringing 40 steel ingots to Foreman Everett.

    Everett: "How about I give you some metal this time? Here. This armor was a special order for one of the Hole fighters. Great against bullets, but didn't help him when he got pushed off the bridge."
