Tesla armor is a type of metal armor that makes its wearer resistant to energy attacks.


Main article: Tesla Armor

This version was likely designed after the Great War by the Brotherhood of Steel, based on the pre-War model derived from plans left behind by Nikola Tesla, confiscated by the US government after his death. The main difference is that its Tesla attraction coils are not in the form of protruding rods, like in the earlier variant.


This unique armor is a curiosity more than anything, as while it's excellent against energy weapons, lots of robots use conventional weapons - including the dreaded Behemoth.
