I just killed a bunch of Raiders using the power armor and a minigun, but now I can't figure out how to leave the armor again. As it drains power and is rather unwieldly I don't want to continue using it right now.

The Settings menu is no help, I can't find any key assigned to leaving the armor again. So, how exactly do I exit the power armor?


With the default mappings:

  • Xbox: press and hold A
  • Playstation: press and hold X (Cross button).
  • PC: press and hold E.

Source is this reddit Fallout 4 post and this guide.

  • In hindsight, it appears Jonathan Drapeau also linked to the source I've used, but in fairness, I did look it up myself... – Ayelis Nov 9 '15 at 21:09

    That should read on XBox press and hold A and more than likely X for playstation – Dupree3 Nov 9 '15 at 21:20

    For wondering PC users: LONG press E. :P – codepleb Nov 11 '15 at 19:47

    Some other useful Press-and-Hold gestures for those curious: Flashlight: Hold the pipboy button: B/Circle/Tab Holster your weapon: Hold the reload button: X/Square/R Move items/bodies: Hold the pick-up button: A/Cross/E Quickly exit a computer terminal: Hold the exit button: B/Circle/Tab Enter VATS with no enemies nearby: Hold the VATS key: LB/D-Up/Q Grab all attached items in the builder: Hold the grab button: A/Cross/E Raise/Lower items in the builder: Hold A+L-R/Cross+L1-R1/E+scrollwheel PC Special: Use WASD instead of Arrows for Crafting and Dialogue options: Hold Shift – Ayelis Nov 25 '15 at 16:50

    A few more: When hiding behind cover, hold the Aim button LT/L2/Rightclick to peek out from cover and shoot at the enemies. Let it go to duck back behind cover. When looking at your pipboy, hold the Aim button LT/L2/Rightclick to look at it from various angles. When armed with grenades, hold the Melee button RB/R1/Alt to throw them. – Ayelis Nov 25 '15 at 20:28
