If I equip multiple pieces of chameleon legendary armour, will they have a greater effect than just a single piece?


Yes - legendary item effects stack across multiple pieces of armor.

As discussed here on the Fallout Wikia page for Legendary Armor Effects (my emphasis):

Legendary effects can be added to items by dropping them on the ground and using the console command "attachmod" while having them selected, followed by the mod ID. You can't stack several mods on a single item, but you can stack over multiple pieces (armor). You can also replace a mod with another one via console.

This means that if you have multiple pieces of armor with the same legendary effect, these will stack together.

  • In this particular case though he is asking if having multiple chameleon pieces provide any additional benefit in terms of stealth – l I Nov 19 '15 at 15:09
  • To which the answer is "yes, legendary item effects [including chameleon] will stack across multiple pieces of armor"... ??? – kalina Nov 19 '15 at 15:23
  • The chameleon effect gives you a stealth boy effect while crouching and not moving. What would having two pieces buy you? – l I Nov 19 '15 at 15:27
  • Chameleon does the following: "Enemies have a harder time detecting you while you're sneaking and not moving" - this is something that can stack since you can have a harder time detecting something. – kalina Nov 19 '15 at 15:29

    I think this depends whether or not you get a 'stronger' stealth field effect when wearing multiple pieces of chameleon armor I don't think it's as cut and dry as the rest of the legendaries – l I Nov 19 '15 at 15:35

Yes... wearing multiple pieces of chameleon armor will stack and give you a greater benefit. Here is a video that shows that:


I can't comment because I have less than 50 rep so I have to post an answer.

Each piece that has chameleon confers a +20 bonus to stealth. With 5 pieces you get a total of +100 to your ability to remain hidden.

More information:

The Chameleon armor effect (ench_mod_LegendaryArmor_Chameleon) has a magnitude of 20 in the creation kit.

Through testing today I can personally confirm that multiple pieces being equipped in succession can increase your ability to remain hidden and even go from the Danger to Caution state and back as they are equipped and unequipped.

    If you could elaborate (official verifiable source where you got those numbers from would be perfect) that would be a great answer – Deltharis Aug 6 '16 at 17:09
  • I couldn't find an official source, but through testing for about an hour today I saw a dramatic difference in rate of detection. – Cavaticus Aug 7 '16 at 22:18

No, the item effect will not stack, but the stats will ofcourse
