I am level 53. When I go to S Boston Military Checkpoint, I can look through the cage and see that the power armor is X-01. When I unlock the terminal and open the cage it still appears as X-01 armor, but when I pull up its inventory it is actually T-45. It stays T-45 when I get into the armor, as well.

Has anyone else encountered this?

  • Sounds like a bug. "It stays T-45 when I get into..." Does it switch to look like T-45? Did you try traveling in it or modding it at a power armor station?

  • Tried it again to be sure my memory is correct, and it did switch to look like T-45. I fast traveled back to Sanctuary and transferred it to an armor station and it was still T-45.

    I have come across this in a few places in fallout 4, This normally occurs when you find power Armour that is not set to a level until it is 'Discovered' in your case when you open the cage. The likely cause of this is you are deemed to low level for X-01 power armour. The normal level for that set of armour to spawn is about 35 in my experience

    I wonder if this could be a bug regarding loading the cell off in the distance, but never getting close enough for it to render; so that it was a leveled suit, which was generated as T-45, but you bypassed it, and the first time it was able to actually render, it was still leveled, and looked like X-01.

Sounds like the Cell reset & Power Armor glitch. Even if you'd made it home with the armor, if you ever exited it, fast traveled, saved (and quit?) and then went back to it, it'd be T-45 parts. Because you don't own the container that is the frame, it gets reset.

Go BUY a frame. Then treat yourself to whatever pieces you find at QAsmoke.
