Like other Fallout games, Fallout 76 features power armor. This powerful equipment will essentially make you considerably stronger, allowing you to take more damage and travel a bit quicker. Power Armor does function a bit differently that it did in Fallout 4, but many of the basics are still the same.
This guide will quickly explain how to get out of Power Armor in Fallout 76. To get out of Power Armor, you’ll want to hold down the A/X button. This will basically leave your power armor where it is, but only for a short while. The Power Armor in Fallout 76 will be one of the things in your inventory after you get out of it and it will go towards your carrying capacity.
You can completely abandon your Power Armor in Fallout 76 by dropping it like any other item. Head into the Pip Boy menu and select the Power Armor from the Apparel tab on the menu. You can drop Power Armor by pressing the X/Square Button. If you don’t want to drop it completely you can just exit it with the instructions below and it will remain in your inventory under the Apparel tab. If you do drop this power armor from your inventory, any other player in the game world can pick it up and use it as their own.
If you’re just looking to drop a little weight, you can pull any pieces off of the Power Armor Chasis and just leave that behind. However, the best course of action is to have a home base built with a Stash. Take the Power Armor Chasis and any pieces that you want to save and save it at your Stash. That way, once you’ve found Power Armor you can go back to your camp and get it at any time.
