Eyebots are a type of robot found in the Commonwealth in 2287.

BackgroundEdit

This section is transcluded from Eyebot. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

Eyebots were originally designed by RobCo[1] before the Great War to act as media transmitters. Several models exist, but generally, they consist of a spherical body roughly half a meter in diameter, capable of hovering a few feet above the ground through an unseen method of propulsion. Though not as sturdy as other robots, Eyebots are quite modular and can be outfitted with tools, small armaments, radio transmitters and other devices.

The variant seen in Fallout 4 appears to be specifically designed for reconnaissance and surveillance, but are still often used to broadcast information and propaganda. Both the Commonwealth Minutemen and Brotherhood of Steel sometimes utilize eyebots for such reasons.[2]

CharacteristicsEdit

Eyebots are floating, spherical robots with various antennas, a large speaker on their front ends and a small, very weak laser weapon mounted underneath. Encountered throughout the wasteland, they are broadcasting radio stations, pre-War advertisement loops or just static.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Eyebots cannot be "activated" (spoken to or pickpocketed), but they can be killed or hacked via the Robotics Expert perk. They are one of the weakest enemies in the game and can generally be destroyed with a single hit from most weapons. Unlike the eyebots encountered in previous Fallout titles, eyebots in the Commonwealth do not explode upon death.

VariantsEdit

Notable eyebotsEdit

NotesEdit

  • With the Automatron add-on installed, the Sole Survivor can have access to their own eyebots, through the eyebot pod, which can find materials (such as adhesive) for their settlements. However, one cannot build their own eyebot with the robot workbench.
  • Even though many eyebot variants can be seen in the Automatron add-on, the eyebot cannot be customized in any way.
  • Unlike the other robots, eyebots have no modeled internals and their shell cannot be shot off.
  • Eyebots are not as frequently found in the Commonwealth as they are in the Capital Wasteland.
  • Due south of the southernmost cave, and due west from the Skylanes Flight 1665 wreckage, one will come across a lone eyebot patrolling a small section of ground in a triangular pattern. The eyebot is not hostile, does not broadcast any audible message and cannot be interacted with.

Behind the scenesEdit

The eyebot resembles the Sputnik-era satellites, predominately the Sputnik 1, an artificial Earth satellite launched by the Soviet Union in 1957.
