For the world object in Fallout 3, see Giddyup Buttercup (Fallout 3).

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.


The Giddyup Buttercup can be broken down into its individual components for use in crafting:

  • 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.
