Duke is wandering the Commonwealth in his suit of power armor, searching for parts the Atom Cats can use to build and maintain their power armor suits. He can be found via random encounter in various locations, shown below. He is scrounging for car parts in destroyed cars and will provide the Sole Survivor with directions to the Atom Cats garage in their Pip-Boy. He is also the gate guard at the Atom Cats garage.
Random encounter locations: Halfway between Tenpines Bluff and Skylanes Flight 1981, on the East side of the raised highway. North of Lake Quannapowitt heading to Recon Bunker Theta. Duke can also be found west of Sanctuary Hills and south of Vault 111.
Interactions with the player characterEdit
Duke marks the location of Atom Cats garage on the player character's map if spoken to.
- If the player wants to get his armor without killing him they can simply steal his fusion core. This disables the suit and he will simply get out of it and walk away. Now crouch and steal all the parts and fast travel to another location (he will turn hostile once his suit has been stolen).
- If this is done, the Atom Cats will become permanently hostile to the Sole Survivor.
- Like many named NPCs that travel across the wasteland, Duke is semi-protected and will only be knocked down temporarily if brought down to 0 hit points by most hostile wasteland enemies. He generally can only be permanently killed by the player. Duke can be killed by NPCs while defending the garage from Gunners. The power armor pieces can be looted without incident.
- Despite his above-average health and suit of power armor, Duke is armed only with a low-tier rifle (up to combat rifle / assault rifle) and is only average in a fight, especially against tougher enemies such as super mutants or higher-level raiders or Gunners.
Duke appears only in Fallout 4.
