For an overview of metal armor models that appear in the Fallout series of games, see metal armor.

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


This armor provides a Damage Threshold of 20 as well as increased resistance to fire, poison and radiation, but also reduces Agility by -1 like all metal armors. It also provides +4 DT more than the normal version, at the cost of a 5 pound increase in weight.

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. It cannot be found on enemies or in containers.

Originally, when the Courier made this armor it was always created with 100% condition. Since the Old World Blues add-on, it is created at 80%.
