Pipboy is an actual person version of Vault Boy, who could be encountered by the Warrior as a joke character. He may join the Brotherhood of Steel and fight as a squad member, but is not considered an official member by the Brotherhood, due to not being a normal person (which in this case is to say he does not fit into any known species of the wasteland).

Pipboy (special encounter)

AvailabilityEdit

Pipboy becomes available after you find him in the Pipboy special encounter. He joins the group when you speak with him if you have fewer than 5 members. He will go away and appear in the recruits pool if you have 5 members. If you have 6 members, he will do nothing.

He will join you even if your level is lower than his when you first find him.

AttributesEdit

  • He has a Perk rate of 3 at the time he is first discovered, and he is level 8 with 3 perks. This is likely due to the fact that PipBoy cannot change stance; by granting Flexible as a freebie, the player is protected from later wasting a gained perk on it.
  • He moves considerably slower than other characters when not in turn-based mode.
  • He has no biographical text in the character screen or in the recruitment pool.

InventoryEdit

Vault jumpsuit FN FAL 7.62mm x40

NotesEdit

  • The mascot of Vault-Tec and the Fallout series is actually called "Vault Boy". The Pip-Boy is something else entirely. This is a very common confusion.
  • The game refers to the recruitable character as CORE_pipboy in the party bar, combat log and recruits pool.
  • Pipboy is encountered severely wounded and can be healed using medical items.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "Golly, but these pants are tight."
  • "You're staring at me."
  • "Gosh, I sure would like some friends."
  • "What the hell are you lookin' at?"
  • "Mighty boring around these parts."
  • "The first time you kill is the hardest."
  • "Doo-be-doo-doo-doo."
  • "I've been itching for a fight!"
  • "Gee-whillikers."
  • "It sure would be swell to shoot something."
