That's close enough. Keep your hands where I can see them.

Armitage is an android and the bodyguard of Dr. Zimmer in the year 2277.


Armitage, 35, is Zimmer's imposing bodyguard and is a particularly quiet individual. He will defend Zimmer to the death. Of course, this is because Armitage is actually an android, much like the replicant. Armitage has the same schedule as Zimmer; he sleeps in the same room and eats the same food - not because he has to, but because he's been programmed to replicate human behavior as closely as possible.[1]

Seemingly human, Armitage is in fact one of Dr. Zimmer's many androids, created in 2242 at the Institute in the Commonwealth, a region to the north of the Capital Wasteland that was once the commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Daily scheduleEdit

Armitage will stay standing next to Zimmer until the quest The Replicated Man is completed.

The Replicated Man: as a bodyguard, Armitage will turn hostile if the Lone Wanderer decides to attack Dr. Zimmer.



  • Despite his status as an android, and his claim that he could "break your neck like a chicken bone", he is of average human durability.
  • If you kill him, you can find one of only four android components in the game on his body (of the other three, one is on Zimmer, one is given to you by Victoria Watts, and one is on Pinkerton).
  • Killing Zimmer before he tries to leave with Harkness in The Replicated Man quest will result in Armitage living forever in the Rivet City market.
  • He can be killed with no loss of Karma, and subsequently killing him with Harkness's permission will not cause Rivet City security to turn hostile toward the player character.

Notable quotesEdit


Armitage appears only in Fallout 3.

Behind the scenesEdit

Armitage is a common cyberpunk name since William Gibson used it for the Wintermute-controlled mercenary in his 1984 novel Neuromancer.
