Vault-Tec – How to Equip Settlers With Vault Suits
- To equip a settler with a Vault Suit and Pip-boy, you’ll need to complete the quest “A Model Citizen” and get started on Overseer Barstow’s ‘special project’.
- Agree to help Overseer Barstow with her experiments. At the end of the quest, you’ll interview a settler named Clem. He’s your Vault Dweller test subject.
- Complete talking to him, and you’ll begin the quest “Power to the People” — find all the gear for Clem in a Vault-Tec container near the Vault 88 entrance ramp
- The container has (10) Vault 88 Jumpsuits and (10) Pip-boys.
- To outfit Clem, follow these steps:
- Talk to Clem to open his inventory.
- Place one (1) Vault 88 jumpsuit and one (1) Pip-boy in Clem’s inventory.
- The Pip-boy will automatically equip. It is located in the [Misc] category of your inventory.
- Once the Vault 88 jumpsuit is in Clem’s inventory, select the suit and press [Triangle] on PS4. Press the [Equip] prompt on your platform to get Clem suited up.
- Your first Vault Dweller is now outfitted!
- The achievement / trophy will pop. Do the same for all your future residents — remember, just place a Vault Suit in a settler’s inventory, then select to [Equip] them.
