The gecko-backed metal armor is a type of armor in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts.


It provides a Damage Threshold of 17 as well as increased resistance to fire, poison and radiation but also reduces Agility by 1, like all metal armors. It has +5 more DT than the normal version.

Like all gecko-backed armor introduced in Honest Hearts, its appearance is unchanged from the original armor type.


This armor must be crafted by the player character. It is not found on enemies or in containers.
