Forget mechs, a new Helldivers 2 mod gives Fallout's T-60 power armour to Super Earth's forces

Terminid problem? It's ok, the Brotherhood of Steel's sending some kit to help out.

Sure, the base version of Helldivers 2 has plenty of cool tech and gear to strap yourself up with before you head into battle or deploy via stratagems. Though, I doubt any soldier of Super Earth would turn down a suit of the Fallout series' T-60 power armour, which is where a new mod comes in.

In case you're wondering, this is another fan-made addition to Arrowhead's FPS that comes courtesy of a new tool developed by the team behind the mod pack that can be used to transform the game into a Star Wars shooter. What they've developed to make texture editing in the game easier has been out less that a week, and had already allowed modders to chuck a bunch of gear from other games into Helldivers.

Having already swapped Lethal Company's iconic employee into the game, modder Graelyth's next port of call has been 'Fallout T-60 Power Armor', which does exactly what you'd expect. Gone is a variant of the B-01 tactical armor set and helmet, with the T-60 suit recently added to Fortnite as a skin having been drafted in to take their places.

As such, this power armour looks like it behaves more like the standard armour sets that Fallout 3 and New Vegas' sets were, which might be a bit of a shame for anyone who's expecting to be able to splatter bugs as the walking tank that Fallout 4's more vehicle-esque power armour transforms you into.

Still, as long as you remember to follow Graelyth's advice and pair this mod with one like Pyenzi's 'No More Capes' - in order to avoid pesky clipping issues - you'll look pretty cool in your shiny grey T-60, which might make the fight against whichever foe you're taking on a bit easier. Seriously, we don't know when or if that black hole might spit out some fresh baddies, but if it does, you want to look intimidating.
