| ||For an overview of metal armor variants in all games, see metal armor.|
The metal armor appears to be taken from a variety of scrap pieces; the upper torso piece on the female variant looks somewhat like a flattened out and reshaped motorcycle fuel tank, for instance. The metal helmet looks like a white closedfaced, armor-plated motorcycle helmet for males, and like a metallic, openfaced, topless (showing hair) armor-plated helmet for females. The shoulder plates have metal spikes welded onto them.
