3. Consult the Project Manager's Terminal

Garrahan Mining's Reception Terminal mentioned that their company's "Excavator Power Armor" was being handled by someone named "Harold Frost" in the R&D Department. I should head there and examine his records.

4. Build Excavator Power Armor

Harold Frost's records revealed a wealth of information regarding Garrahan's Excavator Power Armor, including blueprints. I've decided to make some of the armor pieces for myself at a Power Armor Workbench.

Build Excavator Power Armor

To create armor you will need a lot of ingredients. The rarest of them is Black Titanium and you need 36 pieces of it. It can be obtained in several ways:

  1. You can farm Mole Miners for Miner Suit Scraps worth a single piece of black titanium each. (IMO the fastest way to get them, you can server jump, etc.)
  2. They can be gathered from veins and then smelted at a chemistry station.
  3. Black titanium can also be found in Gorge Junkyard public workshop.
  4. The deathclaw that spawns at Deathclaw Island drops it.

In order to start creating armor, you must also have Power Armor Chassis and place it in front of the Power Armor Station.
