Fallout 4 Guide: How to Get Out of Power Armor

by Kyle Hanson


OK, here’s a quick Fallout 4 guide for everyone, as compared to our many other comprehensive guides that you can find by clicking here. A lot of new players seem to have trouble with one tiny aspect of Fallout 4, specifically exiting your Power Armor. So here’s how to do this…

How to get out of Power Armor on All Consoles:

Default settings on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC:

  • Xbox Controller: press and hold A button.
  • Playstation Controller: press and hold X (Cross button).
  • PC Keyboard: press and hold E key.

Simply hold A or X or E if you are on Xbox One, PS4, or PC respectively. Essentially, whatever button you used to get in, hold it down and you’ll hop out. This means if you changed your control scheme you’ll use something else, so make sure you check.

Now, since that was so simple, here’s a few tips for how to manage your Power Armor once you’ve exited it. First up, always find a nice place to store it. If you can, get to a location with a Power Armor station. To get the suit on there you simply want to exit it nearby, and it will be situated the next time you stop by.

Even without a Power Armor station though, you want to get to a spot that you can fast travel to later. Any location that you’ve discovered should do, but settlements that you own are ideal, as they won’t be swarming with enemies upon your next arrival.

You want to do this because you’ll have to get back to your Power Armor at some point, and you don’t want to go traveling around in the wasteland to find it. Also, make sure you have extra Fusion Cores on you if you’re going somewhere that you can’t fast travel out of for a while. We’ll have a guide for where to find extra Fusion Cores so click the link above to check it out if you need more.
