Giddyup Buttercup is a junk item in Fallout 4. The item was included in Fallout 3, and was marketed as "the ultimate in equestrian robotics" before the war. In contrast to the Fallout 3 rendition which features white paint, this version features yellow paint.
The Giddyup Buttercup is a rather small metal horse with the paint well worn and peeling. It can be scrapped to be used for parts and is a plentiful source of screws. The various Giddyup Buttercup parts can also be found throughout the Commonwealth.
- 14 complete Giddyup Buttercups, including a unique oversized version, and numerous pieces can be found in the Wilson Atomatoys Corporate HQ.
- Six complete Giddyup Buttercups and pieces can be found in the Wilson Atomatoys factory.
- One can be found in Erin's room in Vault 81.
- One can be found in McDonough's bedroom in Diamond City.
- One can be found near the water at Warwick homestead wearing a sailor's hat.
- One can be found behind an advanced lock door in the Harbormaster Hotel.
- One can be found in the third room of the quality assurance department of the General Atomics factory.
- It may be sold by vendors selling junk, including Percy and Trashcan Carla.
- Sold by settlements at the trading post.
- Far Harbor (add-on) One can be found in Waves Crest Orphanage.
- Nuka-World (add-on) At least 3 can be found in Dry Rock Gulch at Nuka-World
- A unique variant can be obtained from Arlen Glass after returning Marlene's holotape, found in Wilson Atomatoys Corporate HQ.
- The Giddyup Buttercup toy is more commonly found than in Fallout 3.
- It is too heavy to lift despite the fact that the player is able to carry them in their inventory. In a settlement however, one can move dropped Buttercups around through the build interface.
- The various Giddyup Buttercup parts do not provide the same amount of scrap materials as a complete Giddyup Buttercup. A complete Buttercup provides 4 springs, 3 gears, 4 screws, and 5 steel with a weight of eight pounds. A head, body, two front legs, and two rear legs yields 12 springs, 8 gears, 2 screws, and 8 steel with a combined weight of ten pounds. Note that if the front and rear leg were counted as a pair of legs each, even though the model is clearly a single leg, then the totals are closer, with 8 springs, 4 gear, 2 screws, and 6 steel with a combined weight of eight pounds.
