The Hei Gui (Chinese: 黑鬼), or Chinese stealth armor, is a piece of armor in the Fallout 3 add-on Operation: Anchorage.


Chinese stealth armor was used during the Chinese invasion of Alaska and was the Chinese solution to invasion by U.S. forces in power armor. It was available to elite Chinese Crimson Dragoon troops as well as the Black Ghost counter-insurgency/terror units before and during the Great War.

Earlier Hei Gui models were also used during raids against the Hoover Dam secret laboratory and Limit-115 laboratory.


The armor is a form-fitting armored jumpsuit, with stealth camouflage system embedded. It generates a modulating field that transmits the reflected light from one side of an object to the other, making a person much harder to notice (but not completely invisible). The technology was the basis for the unstable "Stealth Boy" wrist units developed in the U.S.

It has a Damage Resistance comparable to recon armor, but also increases Sneak by 15 and the stealth field stat by 5 when crouching.


It can only be obtained after the Operation Anchorage simulation. It is in the armory which you can open after completing the simulation. This is the only one throughout the game.


  • The stealth field activates whenever the wearer enters sneak mode; this is true even if the wearer is a companion or a regular NPC.
  • The stealth field bonus does not appear in the Pip-Boy unless you are crouching when you look at it. Otherwise, the only bonus shown is +15 sneak.
  • The clear, see-through texture produced by stealth armor is slightly different than that of a Stealth Boy, and can be compared by hot-keying a Stealth Boy, and activating it while sneaking.


  • pcIcon pc ps3Icon ps3 xbox360Icon xbox360 If the armor breaks while the player has the stealth field activated, there is a possibility that the stealth field will stay active even after changing to a different piece of clothing or exiting sneak mode. This can be fixed by repairing the armor and toggling sneak mode while wearing it, or loading an earlier save. [verified]

If you do this, and then equip another suit of armor (ex. power armor) you will still be wearing all the headgear. See Operation: Anchorage bugs for more details. [verified]
  • pcIcon pc ps3Icon ps3 xbox360Icon xbox360 When a companion has the armor equipped and is crouching (activating the stealth field) you can trade items with him/her and swap the armor with another clothing article and when you exit dialogue the stealth field will remain whenever the companion is crouched. This is useful if you want to sneak through areas with a high concentration of enemies, (such as Evergreen Mills) without the possibility of the death of the companion. [verified]
  • pcIcon pc ps3Icon ps3 xbox360Icon xbox360 If you pickpocket a stealth suit from a Crimson Dragoon, the stealth field will not activate when crouching, and the suit's stats are identical to those of the recon armor. Additionally, it lists under effects on the Pip-Boy as "Initiate's Armor". [verified]
  • pcIcon pc ps3Icon ps3 xbox360Icon xbox360 Certain one-handed weapons like the Chinese pistol will cause the suit's textures to clip onscreen while reloading in the first-person view. [verified]
  • pcIcon pc While performing the perk "Mister Sandman" with the stealth suit the lower part of the player would be floating and out of control. [verified]
  • ps3Icon ps3 xbox360Icon xbox360 When picking up the armor, it will spin when being held, making full circles, until it is dropped. [verified]
  • xbox360Icon xbox360 If you stare at the ground and swing a knife while crouching if first person, a part of the suit will clip into your screen. [verified]
  • ps3Icon ps3 xbox360Icon xbox360 Sometimes when equipping enclosed headgear like a power helmet, switching to the stealth armor, and removing the headgear will cause the player's head to seem gone. [verified] (to fix this bug remove the helmet and the Chinese stealth armor and then reequip it again and your helmet should be back)
