Fallout 4: How to Get a Jetpack & Fly

I wanna flyyyyy like an eagle!

Patrolling the wasteland in Fallout 4 in a set of power armor is one of the most badass feelings you can experience in the wasteland. However, with the addition of a jetpack, the power armor will become the definitive cool way to travel the wasteland.

While the jetpack is certainly a novel way to spruce up your power armor, it does come with a rather hefty cost to your fusion core’s power level.

With a couple blasts around you will soon find yourself out of juice and in need of another core in order to continue your majestic leaps around the wasteland.

How Do You Get a Jetpack in Fallout 4?

If you have an abundance of fusion cores, or just want to feel like Iron Man in Fallout 4 with no care for the expense, here are the two ways you can equip your power armor with this contraption.

Craft the Jetpack Power Armor Mod

The first way is through simply crafting and modifying your power armor and selecting the jetpack option. This requires you to visit a Power Armor Station, one of which can be found at the Red Rocket Truck Stop close to Vault 111. They can also be found in Sanctuary Hills, Spectacle Island, Home Plate, Jamaica Plain and at the Cambridge Police Station, to name a few.

You can only craft a Jetpack for the following Power Armor types, each of which requires a different amount of materials to craft. We’ve listed the required materials next to each power armor below:

  • T-45 Power Armor: 4 Adhesive, 6 Aluminum, 5 Asbestos, 7 Nuclear Material
  • T-51 Power Armor: 5 Adhesive, 8 Aluminum, 6 Asbestos, 9 Nuclear Material
  • T-60 Power Armor: 5 Adhesive, 9 Aluminum, 8 Asbestos, 10 Nuclear Material
  • X-01 Power Armor: 7 Adhesive, 10 Aluminum, 9 Asbestos, 12 Nuclear Material

Before you can craft the Jetpack, you’ll also need to make sure you’ve got your Science! perk to Rank 4, and the Armorer perk to Rank 4.

Complete the Brotherhood of Steel Questline to Get a T-60 Power Armor Jetpack

The alternative way to pick up the modification can only be obtained through completing the main story of the game.

To obtain the cool mod this way, you must complete the main quest line and ensure you have remained a loyal member of the Brotherhood throughout. That means you’ll need to join the faction by visiting Cambridge Police Station and speaking to Paladin Danse.

Progress through the main storyline and when you reach a point of no return in the final quest, you need to choose the Brotherhood of Steel to destroy the Institute.

Once this is done, you’ll be promoted to the rank of ‘Sentinel’ in the Brotherhood of Steel. For your efforts, Elder Maxson will also give you the T-60 Power Armor Jetpack modification.

How to Fly in Fallout 4

Once equipped, head off out into the wasteland and give the jump button (A/ X/ Space bar) a quick press to soar into the sky and rain down fire on your unknowing enemies.

That’s all there is to it, that’s how to get the jetpack and how to fly in Fallout 4.

There should probably be a health and safety guide that should come with the jetpack in Fallout 4, but who cares about safety when there are Super Mutants to be killed?
