How to find a complete X power armor set in Fallout 4
The default power armor in Fallout 4 might as well be made of wet cardboard. A few mines, a couple of precise shots to the chrome kneecaps, and those hunks of junk disintegrate like a saltine in hot soup. Luckily, there’s a way to take care of not-dying by finding Fallout 4's best power armor in quick, relatively simple journey once you hit level 26 or so.
The X armor may look familiar to Fallout fans, likely because it’s featured on the box art for Fallout 2. Those with the entirety of the Fallout lore over-encumbering their mental inventory will also know that the armor has Enclave associations, but it usually just poses as high-level or rare gear in each game. Before I found it in Fallout 4, I rarely used power armor, but now I never want to be out of it. My suit looks cool and takes much, much more damage before repairs are required. Here’s how to get your own.
Where to go
Once you’re out of the vault and level 26 or so, it’s possible to find the X suit. Players have reported that the suit won’t spawn before then, though you can still find another suit of power armor at the location in this guide regardless of your level. It just won’t be as neat. Don’t you want power armor with eyes that glow?
The armor is located on a rooftop not far from the eastern coast. It's not a marked location, but is easy to find if you head east from Good Neighbor until you reach a building called "Custom House Tower". From the Custom House Tower, turn west until you see a turquoise building. Circle the building until you find its only entrance. A sign should read "35 Court". When you find it, go inside, look left and you should see an elevator. Head on up.
'Shut down' some bots
Once you’re upstairs, you’ll should see three doors. The center door contains our treasure, it's locked tight. After a moment, some lights will flash and an Assaultron and a Sentry Bot will emerge from each side door. If you’re not specced out to do tons of damage to angry metal people or you’re barely level 26, it can be a tough fight. Good thing it’s so easy to cheese enemies in Fallout 4.
To easily take care of the robots, I ran off the ledge opposite the main door and onto a small overhang. The robots followed, so I navigated around the corner to out of their line of fire, hopped off the ledge to the ground level (consider taking some Med-X and quicksaving), and ran back upstairs. Now it’s possible to chip away at the robots’ health from above. The term ‘artificial intelligence’ carries layers of meaning here.
Ogle at the armor
When they're done for, you'll have to press a button in each of the robot closets to open the center door. After a few dramatic mechanical noises, the center door will open, and you can claim the new suit. Be sure to jump off the roof and play with the flashlight eyes as soon as possible. Once you're tired of clapping your hands together, take a look at the X's stats (and clap some more).
Congratulations, hip owner of the X power armor. Enjoy exploring the wasteland with flashlight eyes and ice cool aesthetic. The extra safety is a nice perk too, I guess. And that taste in your mouth? It’s not blood. It’s nothing. Enjoy it, because when a few suicidal supermutants decide to hug you close and explode right up in your metal grill, nothing sure tastes good.
Fallout 76 Power Armor: Here's where we've found power armor so far
You’re going to be spending a whole lot of your time in Fallout 76 exploring the Appalachian wilderness and fighting the mutated beasties you find - so you’re going to need the best outfit for the job: power armor. Here’s where you can jump into your very own set of Power Armor, as well as how you can repair, customize, and store your pieces.
Power Armor in Fallout 76
In Fallout 76, the power armor system is very similar to Fallout 4. You start with a basic frame, and then attach different pieces of power armor to that chassis.
Most of the types of power armor, like Raider, T45, and X look like they return in Fallout But unlike Fallout 4, different models of power armor are only equippable once you’ve reached a certain level, so you might get unlucky and happen upon parts you can’t use.
There’s not one single place that you have to go to get power armor, you can find sets of it throughout the world, but it seems that these frames are equipped with random pieces.
The spawns also seem to be semi-randomised. You can find sets of power armor in the same roster of places, but a suit won’t always spawn there for every player.
Again like Fallout 4, power armor runs on fusion cores, which can be looted from the open world, especially from large buildings with fusion generators. You seem to be able to run on one charge from a fusion core much longer in Fallout 76 though, so don’t worry too much about them being scarce.
Where to find power armor in Fallout 76
As for laying your hands on a set for yourself, you have two options:
First - progress through the main quest line until you’re given the location of a set of power armor via a Responder Terminal. This option probably saves you a lot of running around waiting for random spawns.
But if you can't wait, your second option is to try and find a frame at one of the spawn points around the world. I found mine at Arktos Pharma to the southeast of Vault 76, (see screenshot) upstairs in one of the large hangars.
I’ve also found power armor stations - where more suits can spawn - in the northeast of Wade Airport, the basement of the Kanawha Nuka-Cola Plant, and to the north of the Billings Homestead.
Hopefully you’ll find a set of power armor at one of those places, we'll add more as we find them.
Addition power armor locations
We've also seen reports on Reddit of different spawn points around the world. Here's where other people have been finding Power Armor:
- Outside of the Belching Betty mine during the Into the Fire quest that you get from the Charleston Fire Station.
- Inside one of the containers at Morgantown Train Yard
- Watoaga Municipal Centre over in the southeast of the map
- Inside of the Poseiden Energy Plant
- Near the bridge in Point Pleasant
- Inside the Grafton Dam Building
- Over by the worksheds by Mama Dolce's Food Processing
How to customize and repair power armor
Once you've claimed a set for yourself, you're going to want to take care of it. To customize and repair your power armor, you need to take it to one of the yellow power armor stations that you find dotted around the map, or can build at your C.A.M.P.
You can find a power armor station at any of the locations that I listed above as spawn locations for frames, so you might get lucky and find some new parts too.

Power Armor locations in Fallout 76
Since all Power Armor parts are items left in the open world, they are free for anyone to take. You can wait for them to respawn but knowing where to find them in the first place is half of the battle.
Below are some locations of interest should you want your own set of Power Armor. Most of them are found near Power Armor Stations but there are a few that are on deceased Brotherhood of Steel soldiers. All of the locations are separated by region into multiple tables below. To see if there is Power Armor in your location, type the location name using the search bar for each table.

Fallout 76 Power Armor tips
When you come across a Power Armor Frame, you should take it. These are often found next to Power Armor Stations. When you find Power Armor, you can lock the frame to you quickly by removing all the Power Armor parts, then entering the frame.
Equipping any Power Armor gives you a strength bonus, some resistance to damage, and total immunity to fall damage. If you want to know all the stats for all of the Power Armor variants, including the perks that some of the parts grant you, head to our Fallout 76 weapons guide.
Just be sure to stock up on Fusion Cores. Power Armor guzzles fusion energy like modern mobile phones guzzle battery power. Should you should run out of juice, Power Armor will just weigh you down: your speed is reduced dramatically and you won't be able to use the torch or V.A.T.S. To get more fusion cores, either craft them at your CAMP or find Fusion Core Generators at larger named locations on the map.

Fallout: 10 Things That Make No Sense About Power Armor
Power Armor is an iconic element of the Falloutfranchise. Owning a suit in any game immediately enhances the player’s ability to survive, take down powerful enemies, and provides a number of useful features. When someone thinks of Bethesda's post-apocalyptic franchise, they are likely to imagine the T or another Power Armor iteration.
RELATED: Top 10 Legendary Armor Effects In Fallout 4
Yet there’s a lot of things about these devices that seem rather strange when placed under scrutiny. Between the lack of useful features, lore-breaking mechanics, and other oddities, some things about Power Armor don’t make sense.
10 How Did It Handle Long Offensive Scenarios
For a Power Armor to be usable, the wearer needs to keep it supplied with Fusion Cores. The problem is that Fusion Cores burn out and need to be replaced. In fact, a single Fusion Core will last only 10 hours in-game.
Assuming that each Fusion Core would weigh a few pounds in real-life, this would create a logistical nightmare for soldiers on the frontlines for weeks at a time. There would need to be a soldier in Power Armor dedicated entirely to carrying Fusion Cores for everyone else.
9 Integrated Fusion Cores Vs Expendables
Another interesting wrinkle with powering Power Armor is that, according to the lore, it used to be done with integrated Fusion Cores. These integrated units would keep the Power Armor running for years before needing to be replaced.
Yet for whatever reason, every Power Armor utilizes expendable Fusion Cores that only last 10 hours. Granted, it could be the Fusion Cores lost some power over the years they sat idle; however, it’s hard to imagine the Enclave or another technologically advanced faction wouldn’t have solved this problem and integrated new integrated Fusion Cores given the obvious tactical advantage they provide.
8 Why Aren’t There More Industrial Based Models
It seems the vast majority of Power Armors are designed with combat scenarios in mind. While this obviously makes sense given the protection and carrying capacity, it doesn’t explain why this technology wasn’t used in other industries.
There does exist an Excavator Power Armor for mining purposes, but only one design was created and ever used. No one thought to expand on that and make suits of Power Armor for other industrial applications? It is either an oversight or patent laws are really tricky in this universe.
7 No Defensive Turrets
Power Armor boasts a variety of features and effects that are designed to keep the wearer safe and make them more lethal in combat. However, one glaring oversight is defensive features should the wearer be distracted or possible incapacitated in any way.
RELATED: Fallout 4: How To Get Ballistic Weave (& The Best Items To Use It On)
With the advancement in robotics, AI, and weapon technology, it seems strange no one thought to put automated shoulder-mounted cannons similar to Predators. All it would take is one well-placed AI-controlled turret to keep anyone from sneaking up on someone in Power Armor.
6 One Size Fits All
A strange feature of Power Armor is that one size seems to fit all. It doesn’t matter who puts it on, the Power Armor is guaranteed to fit them. In fact, it seems the only individual who couldn’t put one on is Strong from Fallout 4.
Tall, short, wide, or skinny, it doesn’t matter as anyone can step up and hop inside. Perhaps this was to make it so anyone could use a suit, but the lore states that soldiers were trained specifically to use Power Armor. The suits were also designed to fit the soldiers' measurements exactly to act like it was an extension of their own body.
5 Power Armor Used To Be Usable Long-Term
The lore of the games states that Power Armor used to have the Fusion Cores integrated into the suit and could last years. They could also recycle urine to provide the wearer with clean drinking water. This allowed soldiers to wear the Power Armor for weeks at a time without having to take them off.
Yet in-game the player is constantly switching out Fusion Cores because they only last 10 hours and the player needs to provide their own water from external sources. Maybe these features degraded over the years and the Fusion Cores are old, but 10 hours is a huge difference from years.
4 HUD With No Helmet
In Fallout 4, Power Armor generated a Heads Up Display to provide the wearer with useful information about the suit and their own health. Yet whenever the player removes just the helmet of the Power Armor, the HUD remains.
There doesn’t seem to be a projection from the chest unit or the frame itself. The HUD also doesn’t appear when an NPC is wearing Power Armor without a helmet. There is no apparent reason for the HUD to appear at all and yet it magically does every time.
3 They’re Capable Of Stealth
A set of T armor weighs almost a hundred pounds of metal and requires powerful hydraulics and servos to keep it upright and allow the wearer to carry even more weight. The result is a large and bulky vehicle that should make a ton of noise when moving.
RELATED: Fallout 4: The 10 Hardest Challenge Runs, Ranked
Despite all that, a player wearing a suit of Power Armor is perfectly capable of sneaking up on an enemy. Granted, it’s a touch harder, but one would think stealth would be near impossible with parts hissing and booted feet clunking to the floor. This is even true for the old clunky models like the T that were not designed for stealth.
2 No Power Armor In Vaults
Considering Power Armor is the pinnacle of personal defense and offense, it’s rather strange that not a single suit resides in a Vault. While it makes sense in the experimental Vaults, they don’t even make an appearance in the Vaults intended to function properly.
It only makes sense that Vault-Tec would want at least one or two per Vault to protect the Overseer, protect the Vault from incursions, act as peacekeepers, or at the very least secure their investments.
1 The Armor Survives Fusion Core Detonations
The strangest fact about Power Armor is that it is capable of withstanding the detonation of its Fusion Core while it’s still inside the suit. A Deathclaw can rip the thing to pieces, causing the player to be left in nothing but a frame, but a Fusion Core going off has no effect?
Despite a mini nuclear explosion occurring in the center of the frame, the thing will be intact afterward as if nothing happened. Sure, it forces the wearer to leave the suit, but it’s a miracle they are still standing after such a catastrophe.

Fallout 4: The 10 Best Pieces Of Power Armor, Ranked
Armor protection in Fallout 4 is important for withstanding all of the attacks that the creatures of the wasteland throw at you. The best way to protect yourself from the threats of the Commonwealth is by wearing power armor, large sets of metal armor that are powered by fusion cores. Power armor has always been at the core of the Fallout franchise.
RELATED: Fallout 4: The Best Luck Perks, Ranked
There are a few different sets and unique individual pieces of power armor found throughout Fallout 4 and its expansion packs, and you should know about each of their effects so that you can choose the best one that suits your unique build.
10 Vengeance T Right Leg
Vengeance is a right leg piece of power armor that gives you the ability to reflect 10% of melee damage that you take from an enemy. This ability is very powerful in Fallout 4 because it allows you to damage an enemy simply by getting hit by them. Proctor Teagan sells the Vengeance armor piece on the Prydwen.
RELATED: Fallout 4: The Best Charisma Perks, Ranked
T power armor is one of the strongest sets in Fallout 4, which is why it is worth using the Vengeance armor piece if you are looking for the best possible damage protection that you can find. This piece is most useful if you use melee combat, since you will be more likely to get hit by other melee weapons during your adventures.
9 Tessa's Fist, Raider Armor Right Arm
Tessa's Fist is a piece of raider power armor, one of the less common types of power armor found throughout the Commonwealth. The effect that this armor has is + percent durability, which means that you won't have to repair Tessa's Fist very often. This is especially helpful if you don't have many materials towards the beginning of a new playthrough.
You can obtain Tessa's Fist by defeating Tessa at the Quincy ruins in Fallout 4. The battle with Tessa is tough, so make sure to bring your most powerful weapons for defeating this NPC.

Vim is a unique soda found on the island of Far Harbor; it is similar to Nuka-Cola but is exclusive to the Island. You can find a full set of this power armor at the Vim Pop Factory.
The Vim power armor grants +1 to your strength special stat. Although this isn't the most powerful set of power armor in Fallout 4, the extra strength stat point is very helpful for players that use unarmed or melee weapons.
7 Piezonucleic T/T Torso
The Piezonucleic torso piece is one of the only individual power armor pieces that are unique in Fallout 4. This piece of armor is a quest reward for completing the mission "Cambridge Polymer Labs."

The unique effect of the Piezonucleic torso is very powerful, but only if you don't mind walking straight into a cloud of radiation. This effect grants you a faster action point refresh speed while you are standing in radiation. The Piezonucleic torso is either T or T, depending on your level at the time that you complete the "Cambridge Polymer Labs" side quest.
6 Honor T Left Leg
Basically every player in Fallout 4 regularly uses action points for VATS and for sprinting, which is why the Honor power armor piece is so useful. This piece of power armor grants you a bonus toward your action point refresh rate, which means that you will recover your AP much faster.
You are awarded this piece of power armor after finishing the quest "Blind Betrayal," a Brotherhood of Steel exclusive side quest. This quest isn't particularly hard; however, being a part of the Brotherhood of Steel is, unfortunately, a requirement for completing it and acquiring this unique armor piece.
5 Visionary's T Helmet
There aren't many unique power armor helmets in Fallout 4, which is unfortunate considering that it is one of the most important power armor pieces. The Visionary's helmet is one of the few unique power armor helmets, and it has a higher than average defense rating while also granting you a faster action point refresh rate.

The Visionary's helmet is another piece of power armor that is exclusive to the Brotherhood of Steel faction, and it is granted to you upon the completion of the "A Loose End" quest.
4 Quantum X Armor Set
There are a few different power armor sets that were introduced with the Nuka-World DLC, and the Quantum X armor set is one of them. X armor is incredibly powerful because of the amount of damage resistance it grants to the wearer.
On top of the high damage resistance, the Quantum armor set has a beautiful light blue color scheme, and it makes your action points refresh much faster than usual while you have every piece equipped. This armor set is obtained in the Galactic Zone in Nuka-World.
3 Tesla Armor Set
The Tesla power armor set consists of a torso, right arm, and left arm pieces. All three of these unique pieces of power armor grant a 5% bonus toward energy weapon damage, and each piece also has a distinct appearance that is different from the other types of power armor in Fallout 4.
This armor set is acquired after defeating the raider Ivey found in Fort Hagen, one of the unique locations in the Automatron DLC. Players that use energy weapons should find and equip the Tesla power armor set as soon as possible.
2 Nuka T Armor Set
Some unique armor pieces in Fallout 4 grant a +1 bonus to your special stats; however, the Nuka T armor set grants you +3 towards your agility stat while every piece of this armor set is equipped. This set of power armor also has one of the best paint jobs in Fallout 4 — themed around Nuka-Cola.
You can find the Nuka power armor set in the Bottling Plant, one of the five main attractions in the Nuka-World DLC.
1 Overboss Power Armor Set
The Overboss set is a unique type of raider power armor, and the torso piece of this set is one of the most powerful items in Fallout 4. The Overboss power armor torso deals energy damage toward enemies that are within your radius, which is useful while fighting multiple enemies at arm's reach.
The Overboss power armor set is easy to obtain as it is rewarded to the player for defeating Colter at the beginning of the Nuka-World DLC.

Fallout 4 Power Armor repair, modding, and location guide
Fallout 4 Power Armour is available in the early hours – a departure from its late-game appearance in previous Fallout titles. That doesn’t mean it’s a game-changer from the off, though. Scavenging the Fallout 4 wastes will have you discover Power Armour in varying states of battle-readiness. Sometimes you’ll need to completely rework the scrap you find in some abandoned garage, and sometimes you’ll find pristine sets of the life-saving plating. Below, you’re going to find a quick guide to how to find, repair and modify your essential defensive equipment, as well as a few locations on where to find some armour to get you started.
There are a few vital things you need to make sure you have in your possession when you step out into the nuke-blasted wilds of the 23rd century Commonwealth. You need a fresh supply of water, you need a powerful gun (with surplus ammo) and you need Fallout 4 Power Armour. Practically everything around you wants you dead: the local flora and fauna have evolved to be indiscriminately lethal, and if you’re not well protected you’ll die in minutes – if not seconds.
Fallout 4 Power Armor Basics
The foundation of the Power Armour suit is a skeletal frame that you can add parts to. To get a complete suit, you'll need to tack on arms, legs, a head, and a torso. You'll also need a Fusion Core to get it moving. If you don't have a core, the suit is basically useless as you're forced to crawl along.
The perks of roaming around in a clunky metal suit are numerous. For a start, you'll take less damage, you won't be injured if you jump or fall from a great height, and the effects of radiation won't be as severe. You'll also be able to carry more items while wearing it.
While all of those bonuses might have you itching to stuff yourself inside of a suit for the entirety of the game, it's worth noting that any action that uses AP points will drain the Fusion Core, and they aren't exactly plentiful. Power Armour is best saved for difficult encounters and quests, and it's advisable to always carry a spare fusion core.
If you leave your suit at a base or out in the wilderness with a fusion core installed, anyone who takes a shine to it can hop inside and take it for a spin. So either be sure to extract the core when you park it up, or you can leave it in so that your settlers can fend off raiders in style.
You'll receive your first Power Armour suit just down the road from Sanctuary, in the town of Concord. Head to the Museum of Freedom and pick up the quest When Freedom Calls. You'll get yourself a free set of Power Armour for your trouble.
Fallout 4 Power Armor Repairs
Once you've got yourself a Power Armour suit, head to a settlement with a Power Armour Station like Sanctuary or the Red Rocket Truck Stop. Whilst wearing the Power Armour, walk yourself into the yellow frame of the station, then press and hold the relevant button to exit.
When you're out, your armour will have automatically reoriented itself to face outwards, ready for tinkering. To interact with the Power Armour station, look at the yellow frame. The options to craft and transfer will now be available to select.
First off, you'll want to repair the components. Interact with the station and scroll down through the list of parts. The health of each part is displayed in a box to the left. If the part is damaged, the repair option will be highlighted at the bottom of the screen. Various materials will be needed in order to repair your Power Armour, but for the most part you'll just need steel which you can easily obtain by scrapping metal items around your settlements.
Fallout 4 Power Armor Mods
To craft the best Power Armour mods, you'll need to invest some points into the Blacksmith, Armourer, and Science! perks.
You can upgrade the base stats of parts by switching between models.
Selecting a material mod will bestow certain attributes - usually when the entire suit is kitted out with the same material mod.
The upgrades for misc mods are generally directly related to the part being upgraded, like increased sprint speed for leg pieces.
The materials you'll need for Power Armour mods are the same as those you'd require for regular armour crafting, so be sure to stock up on junk and stash it in your workshop before you hunker down for some serious crafting.
For more info on how to change the paint job for your Power Armour, check out the locations of the Hot Rodder magazines to unlock them.
You'll notice that there are a few different types of Power Armour available for you to swan around killing everything in. Here are the five types of Power Armour and how you can get them.
Raider Power Armour
The Raider Power Armour is usually found being worn by Raider minibosses, and is the weakest of the sets. You won't be able to extricate their corpses from the armour after a fight, so just take the parts, repair them at a station and pop them onto a suit you already have.
You can find a full set of Raider Power Armour at the waypoint simply named Cave in the Glowing Sea in the southwest corner of the map.
T Power Armour
The T Power Armour is likely the first set you'll come across when you leave Sanctuary. You'll find it in Concord during the quest When Freedom Calls.
T Power Armour
The T Power Armour is the next step up from the T, and once you hit level 15, you'll find T parts at locations that would have otherwise spawned T parts.
You can find a full set on a barge to the east of the Pickman Gallery.
T Power Armour
The T Power Armour is next in order of strength, and you can get your hands on it by joining The Brotherhood of Steel. If you don't want to join them, you can buy it at Atom Cats Garage, but it won't be cheap.
X Power Armour
This is the unicorn of all Power Armour - it's the hardest to find and the most powerful of the bunch. If you head to one of the locations for this armour and your level is too low, you'll find the T set instead. Aim for level 30 and above before going in search of this one.
You can buy or steal parts from Rowdy at the Atom Cats Garage. If you'd rather not spend any caps or mess up your karma, the easiest place to get it is at the South Boston military checkpoint.
After taking out a couple of raiders, head around the side of the building and you'll spot the power armour behind a locked door. The set will change depending on your level, so if you're 30 or higher, this is the simplest way to get the best power armour in the game.
The terminal to open it is expert level, so hack it and bask in the magnificence of your new toy.
Alternatively, you can head east of Diamond City, towards Custom House Tower, until you reach Court Take the lift to the top, and after confronting a hardcore Assaultron and Sentry Robot, you'll find the armour on the roof. Press the red buttons in the rooms the robots came out of to access it.

In Fallout 4, Power Armor suits can help players through a lot of tough situations. While there are many models and variations of suits to choose from, nothing really beats the X Power Armor. Lauded as one of the best and most advanced Power Armor suits in the game, the X is also notoriously rare, and therefore tricky to find. This guide will help you locate a full suit of X Power Armor with relatively little effort.
Should you need help with any other areas of Fallout 4, make sure to head over to our Fallout 4 guides walkthrough hub, featuring entire mission and area walkthroughs, as well as the locations of every Bobblehead in the game.
The X Power Armor can be found in several locations in Fallout 4. Most of the X suits found throughout the wasteland only contain a few X parts, not the full suit, and this largely depends on what level the player is at the time of discovering the armor. However, there is one location that houses a full X Power Armor suit, for players who make the effort to acquire it.
Players should be at least around level 28 or higher before searching for the X Power Armor, as this will increase their chances of actually finding a suit with X parts. Perhaps wait until level 30, just to be on the safe side.
How to Find a Full X Power Armor Suit
To track down the full X suit, begin by locating the Custom House Tower on the east side of the wasteland, near Faneuil Hall. However, don’t actually go inside the Tower. Instead, head southwest down the road until you reach the building with a sign that says “35 Court”. This is the tall green building to the left of the Tower entrance.
Enter the building, and take out the robot in the lobby. Press the elevator button to call the elevator. Ride the elevator to the rooftop, where the X Power Armor is located. Prepare to fight off an Assaultron and a Sentry Bot, who emerge from a pair of side chambers.
For a quick breakdown of Power Armor crafting and modification, check out our Fallout 4 Power Armor Guide. To discover more Fallout 4 features, head over to our Fallout 4 Walkthrough and Guide.
There is a red button found inside each of the chambers the robots came out from. After taking down the defensive bots, proceed to press the red buttons inside both chambers. This will cause the door on the center chamber to open, revealing the full suit of X Power Armor housed inside.
As previously mentioned, there are also several other locations where a partial suit of X Power Armor can be found. One such suit is located in the Abandoned Shack northwest of the Glowing Sea, on the western side of the map.
Another is found at the National Guard Training Yard inside the armory. Look for a red metal door to the armory, and prepare to fight off some Ghouls. The armory contains a security door that requires Master level hacking skills to unlock. Bring along Nick Valentine to hack the terminal for you if your Hacker perk isn’t a high enough rank. The X suit is found just behind the security door.
Remember, the chances of finding X parts on suits in these locations will vary depending on player level, and the number of parts is random. Aim to be at least level 30 or higher, and create a save file before tracking down these suits. The higher the player’s level, the better the chances of discovering a suit with X modules.
