Bethesda Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks have released their online action role-playing video game Fallout 76 for PC and consoles in 2018. It’s the fourth game in the Fallout series, and it takes place before the events of the first three games.
It’s not easy to make it through Fallout 76’s wasteland. However, there is a plethora of equipment that can serve as a lifeline in perilous circumstances. The Solar Armor is one of the best sets of equipment, and it was introduced with the Nuclear Winter downloadable content. The Solar set is notable not only for its additional damage reduction but also for the health regeneration it provides for the player and his or her teammates. How to obtain it is detailed below.
The Impact of Solar Armor
If you’re looking for a good set of armour in Fallout 76, look no further than the Solar Armor, which, when worn in full, allows you to heal yourself. The nearby members of your team will also benefit from this health restoration, but only if your health is at least 60%. A full suit of armour includes a chest plate, leg plates, arm plates, and a helmet. The headpiece is not part of the Solar Armor set, but it can be found with the other pieces.
In Fallout 76, you’ll need to assemble the Solar Armor by assembling five separate crafting plans. They can be purchased from Regs in Vault 79 or obtained as loot during raids on Vault 94. Plans for Solar Armor are obtained from raids and are dropped in the following order: left arm, right arm, left leg, right leg, chest.
Solar sets can be crafted at either level 40 or level 50
Solar sets can be crafted at either level 40 or level 50. In comparison to the Level 50 set’s 160 physical and 120 energy damage reduction, the Level 40 variant’s 134 physical and 101 energy damage reduction is still quite respectable. Neither package protects against radiation in any way. On the other hand, if your health is above 60 percent and your teammates’ is too, you’ll both experience a health regeneration effect once you’ve equipped all of the pieces. It restores four HP per second.
The Solar Armor, like other specialised armour, can be purchased from Regs in Vault 79 in exchange for Gold Bullion. The full set of armour is quite expensive, but individual pieces can be purchased for a reasonable sum. This is what each item will set you back:
1,000 Gold Bullion for the Chest
1,000 Gold Bullion for the Chest; 750 Gold Bullion for each of the Left Arm and Left Leg; 750 Gold Bullion for each of the Right Arm and Right Leg
Ballistic Fiber, Leather, Plastic, Rubber, Vault 94 Steel, and Legendary Modules are all required to make a full set of Solar Armor. To make the Level 50 set, you’ll need at least five Legendary Modules and up to 65 Vault 94 Steel, not counting the more common components that you’ve hopefully already stocked up on.
