The armor workbench is a crafting station in Fallout 4. The Sole Survivor can use the workshop to attach and detach armor mods on body armor parts and some clothing pieces. The armor parts that can be modified are divided into chest, right arm, left arm, right leg and left leg.

Some clothing can be upgraded at the workbench, such as Vault jumpsuits and red dress.

When applying an armor mod, the name of the armor part can change accordingly. To create a mod, the Sole Survivor needs proper materials, as well as the corresponding perk, Armorer. The Armorer perk has four ranks, each one unlocks another rank tier for armor crafting.
