Z2-47 is one of The Institute's elite Coursers in Fallout 4.


Z2-47 is an Institute Courser, designed for high-risk assault and retrieval operations above ground. During 2287, he is tasked with retrieving a Gen 3 synth; designation K1-98. K1 however was captured by a group of Gunners and taken to their base at Greenetech Genetics, but this did not stop the ruthless Courser as he charged into the facility; killing a large number of Gunners in his way until he reached the synth - but before he can get her, he meets his final foe; the Sole Survivor.

Other interactionsEdit

  • If one opens the security door before engaging Z2-47, he will thank the player character and ask for a moment before using the recall code. From here he engages the player character in dialogue beginning with, "Are you here for the synth?" exactly the same as if K1-98 had not been freed prior to engagement.

  • Prior to the quest, one can get the reset codes from one of Mama Murphy's visions.
  • Like all Coursers, Z2 will utilize Stealth Boys while in combat, making using V.A.T.S. difficult.
    • Power armor equipped with a targeting HUD helmet modification, however, can lock onto him and allow the use of V.A.T.S.
    • Z2-47 can be tracked by any gun with a recon scope mod attached, but only if he is tagged before he engages his Stealth Boy.
    • Companions will attack him, even with the Stealth Boy active.


Z2-47 appears only in Fallout 4.
