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...

    That should read on XBox press and hold A and more than likely X for playstation

    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.
