How To Repair Power Armor In Fallout 4
Repairing power armor does not need additional skills; however, it does need certain crafting items to repair different parts.
Step 1: Find a Power Armor Station
First of all, you will have to find a power armor station to repair your power armor, do not worry, as there are plenty of power stations in the irradiated world of the Commonwealth. You can find a power armor station in many of your settlements, like Sanctuary Hills. One power station can also be found at Red Rocket Truck Stop.
You can also build a power armor station in your settlements only if you have the required perks so that it is always available, no matter whatever settlement you are close to.
Step 2: Exit Power Armor
After finding a power armor station, move near the power armor station and exit the armor. You can exit from your power armor by pressing and holding the A on Xbox, X on PlayStation, or E on the keyboard. If you have changed the button mapping for the exit button, press and hold that specific button to get your character out of power armor.
If your power armor is close enough to the Power Armor Station, you should see a prompt appear at the bottom of the screen to enter the crafting menu. Press the specified button, and now you can repair your power armor.
Step 3: Repair Power Armor
After opening up the crafting menu, you will see the individual parts of power armor. Select the part that needs to be repaired and press the repair button. If the power armor station is near a workbench, the required items needed for the repair will be drawn from the workbench inventory and the player character’s inventory.
If the power armor station is not close to any workbench, then the items required for the repairs will be only taken from the character’s inventory. If you do not have enough crafting items, you will not be able to repair your armor.
Most of the power armors need steel to repair them, but you will need rare items like circuitry and other rare resources to repair more powerful and unique power armors like the X-01.
