Urban Scout Armor

This armor is best for those who are more interested in the defensive effects of armor. Urban Scout Armor boasts both high damage and energy resistance. This is perfect for players that want to feel invincible without Power Armor. The absolute best perk of this armor is that it doesn't require Fusion Cores.

Metal Armor

Now, the Metal Armor is not the best choice when it comes to the overall gameplay of Fallout 76. What makes this armor worthy of being on the list is that it is the best armor for early players. In the beginning, those who have not yet gathered everything to get impressive armor still need protection. That's where the easy-to-make and decently useful Metal Armor comes into play.

Prototype X-01 Power Armor

When it comes to Power Armor, you can't go wrong with a classic like a Prototype X-01. This power armor combines high damage resistance with moderate energy requirements. These two factors come together two give players the best of both worlds with armor.

Urban Operative Underarmor

While all players know you have armor that gives you perks, many are not aware of the power behind the Urban Operative Underarmor. Most clothing worn under the armor in Fallout 76 has no effect. But this set gives players additional rad, damage, and energy resistance. It also gives some additions in perception and strength.
