The RobCo Reflectron is an imaging device manufactured by RobCo in Fallout: New Vegas.


It appears at the beginning of the game, and is used to make decisions about what your character's face, as well as hair will look like. Unlike the old Gene Projector, it can also change your age to anywhere between 17 and 60.

Using The Reflectron

Facial Reconstruction

After being shot in the head, the only other ways for the player to change their facial structure is either through the option given as the player leaves Goodsprings, or with the Sink model Auto-Doc's appropriate upgrade.
