I was wondering the same thing... I thought it might be a perk for when I level up, but when I go through the list of perks that will become available I don't see it. Maybe its learned through main quest?

Keep doing the main quest and you'll eventually have to escape to the Citadel city(Brotherhood HQ) and they'll teach you the skill there.

im in the citadel right now
and i speaked to the eldar giving me rights to learn the armor
however, i cant find the gunnery paladin
does anyone know where he is?
they say hes by the lab?
but i've been searching the whole citadel for like a hr trying to find him.

Otomsk
11-01-2008, 06:38 AM
He is in the Bailey. Just like Elder Lyons said. You should be able to see him walking around in the training ground outside. Thats where I found him.

SIR TRICE
11-01-2008, 07:01 AM
i've been walking around there and havent seen him
like where abouts does he walk out there?

cause i've searched every corner of the courtyard hahahaha

Otomsk
11-01-2008, 07:07 AM
Thats weird. He usually does a full circle around the training yard. Try waiting a couple of hours and see if his there.

SIR TRICE
11-01-2008, 07:16 AM
is he wearing a full power armor suit/helmet?
or what does he look like

and when you look over him does it say "gunnery paladin"
cause maybe i've overlooked him

Otomsk
11-01-2008, 07:20 AM
Well if I remember correctly he was wearing the power armor but not the helmet. And I believe his name is Gunny, or around those lines. Well...I'm off to bed, good luck finding him. I'm pretty sure he will appear soon enough.

SIR TRICE

How do you get into the citadel?

You'll get there after completing The Waters of Life I believe. You have to escort some people there for the story anyway.

Any body know how to wear (Power armor the type the brotherhood of steel have)You need some sort of training:confused::confused:

BlackDragon
11-03-2008, 12:22 PM
Yeah, 'Powered Armor Training' - it's a Perk you can receive from a quest. Just keep progressing with the Main Quest, and you'll eventually reach The Citadel, where you can get the training you need.

When you get to the Citadel talk to Elder Lyons right away and ask to be trained to wear Power Armor.
He'll tell you Gunny can train you.
Walk to where all the Initiates are practicing shooting and fighting, and look for the guy in full Brotherhood of Steel armor, he'll teach you.

So many people have had trouble learning it, I found it quite easy..

You must have went there later than I have because Paladin Bael at the gate won't let me in. He says no civilians, Super Mutants, or travelling salesmen allowed. There is a intercom on the wall next to him, but it says no one answered.

I got that too, I think you can only get in when you get the quest to, although I haven't got their yet so I'm not 100% certain.

So I haven't done any of the main quest except "Following in his footsteps", and I went ahead and did all the side quests because that's just me. I enjoy just searching around for hours upon hours until there is nothing to do. So I finally I got the T-51b armor and I can't use it for a while apparently. Freaking blows, I mean in Morrowind I found dungeons with nice gear and it had nothing to do with the main quest line. Sucks the best armor in the game does.....


Ah guess its just a rant, but its funny level 15 with T-51b and 3 of the main quest line quests only finished.

but maybe I'm just weird.

Thats the same way I played this game also had all this great armor before any of the real story missions.

ElboBlie

I kept wondering why all these Power Armor threads popped up, it is nice armor for lower level people who stick to the story line. But I still can't wear that crap.

Hello guys i want to learn how to wear power armor i have to find a guy in the lab when i ask at GNR. But where is that lab?

Ortep
12-03-2008, 12:42 PM
It's actually after that. The person who teaches you is at the Brotherhood Enclave.

Nightdragon
12-03-2008, 01:02 PM
Once you get into the Brotherhood's stronghold later in the game (story, can't miss it) there will be a paladin in the middle of the courtyard who is training others in weapons.

First you should ask elder lyons to let you get trained, then find the guy in the courtyard who will train you.

garbfink
12-03-2008, 01:07 PM
heh I've been wondering around the compund for ages trying to find the trainer, I gave up and carried on with my quests. Might have to go back now and find him :D

Just a quick question: how can i repair the a3-21 plasma rifle? Does it ever break or something?

I love that thing... it has so much damage it can't compare with any other weapons... best of all, it has a value of 2000+ and has 200 ammo right now...

oysterboy13
12-06-2008, 09:00 AM
Every time I try to put on power armour it says I need training to wear it. My question is at what point or what quest in the game does this happen?

Bamstead
12-06-2008, 09:31 AM
After you get into brotherhood citadel

Aelarin
12-06-2008, 09:59 AM
Once you gain access to the Citadel via the main quest (don't want to spoil the story, you'll know when you're there), Elder Lyons will permit you training from the Brotherhood in power armour usage. Look for Paladin Gunny who can be found wandering around the main courtyard. He'll tell you how one wears the armour properly and then you'll get the perk.

TensePunisher

so i just saw a brotherhood guy get mauled by a deathclaw. i killed the deathclaw and went over to the brotherhood guy and took his armor. i keep trying to put it on but it says i dont have power training. im level 7 btw.

BigFellaJake
12-24-2008, 08:17 PM
I had the same problem as well but its quite a simple reason.
If you do the main quest line up to "waters of life" and do that. You will end up at the citadel, you can ask the main guy there (you have to talk to him anyway) about being trained in the armour. You can then find the person who teaches you, he's in the same place so its not hard to do

TensePunisher
12-24-2008, 08:21 PM
thanks. um were do i go for waters of life?

BigFellaJake
12-24-2008, 08:23 PM
Just keep doing the main quests normally and by the time you reach rivet city you should start the quest there, but don't take any short cuts to get there as it will miss out important parts of the story

To add, look for Paladin Gunny in the Citadel after you talk to the Elder.

Alternatively, if you "Search this Form" for "power armor" you'll get one of several threads on the subject, like this one here (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=102330).

Although you are correct your opinion is invalid because you have wii in your name:p.
But then again, somethings when you search for an answer you wont get the specific details you were hoping for

Woah, there big fella :D. The primary reason for my response is to point out who exactly to talk to. My secondary is to politely point out that though the question may seem unique, chances are there is an answer for it already somewhere in the world.

jeez deathclaws at level 7? tough break. Yea theres a guy called gunny in the citadel, need permission from the elder lyons guy but kinda happens anyway as youre progressing through the main quest, also ask him for permission to use the weapons shop there its useful.

IMPOSSIBLE DAN
12-25-2008, 10:31 AM
SPOILER-

You have to get to the citadel and do the training.

Rifle Elite
12-25-2008, 12:05 PM
You can either do all main quest upon you reach the Citadel or you can just go to the Citadel by yourself by using a map on the internet. Elder Lyons normally can be found in the courtyard or in the science lab. Talk to him and he will tell you to find Gunny. Gunny can be found in the barracks (first go to teh A wing) power armor training is free btw.

Think Elder Lyons explains it.

Simply put:
Elder Lyons' Brotherhood = Protect the innocent, lets get technology later
Outcasts = Obtain technology, the innocent be damn

He was the one talking when you first get inside. Check the Citadel Laboratory. He also has quarters in B ring.

i found him as soon as you enter the citadel straight in front, in the middle of the courtyard he likes to walk around the peons since they are training during the day

Boiled Frogs

the main quest will bring you to him eventually, elder lyons is in the citadel, he will give you permission and then you need to find another guy (also in the citadel) who will train you.

ChillcoRE
01-03-2009, 02:20 PM
Elder Lyons isn't the guy who actually trains you, he just gives another BoS member permission to train you. The other guy's name is Gunny.

Talinth
01-03-2009, 03:03 PM
You find the guy in Ring A in the citadel, he tends to walk about. I found him outside the archives. Good hunting

You can get it while doing the main quest. You go to the Brotherhood of Steel Citadel and ask Elder Lyons.

WTF dude this whole thread is about that very question read it. This MUST be the most FAQ in fallout3 history. I read this thread laughing because someone would ask how to put on power armor and another person would answer then someone else would say I have power armor but cant put it on and it would be answered again.

BigFellaJake
01-18-2009, 05:16 PM
The training for the armour is found later on in the story once you have reached the citadel. Once you get there the person who talks to you straight away, he is an elder, will tell you where to get the training

Another annoyance is that after that quest, you will be finding armours in the wasteland of equal value or better in terms of defence. Make sure you have a good repair level though as that will greatly increase the defence as well

Once you escape the tunnels with Dr Li, and get to the citadel you will have to wait untile Dr Li screams at the intercom to be let in, once in you will be able to talk to Elder Lyons and ask about being trained to use power armor.

How do u get the power armor training exactly? Cause i found the heavy armor in fort constantine, ... but need that training to wear it :s

Teinaava
04-08-2009, 12:26 AM
You can get the training 2 ways:

1) At the end of the quest "The Waters of Life" you will gain access to the Citadel. Once you're in the Citadel, find Elder Lyons and ask him about Power Armor Training. Once he gives you permission to receive the training, find Paladin Gunny (he should be in the Citadel's Courtyard) and talk to him about training. He will then train you, allowing you to wear Power Armor.

2) If you have the Operation: Anchorage DLC, once you complete the quest "Operation: Anchorage" you will gain the Power Armor Training Perk, and will be able to wear Power Armor.

Anyone help? Here's a guide, very fast paced you may have to pause the video from time to time, very easy to get power armor training right out of the vault.

YouTube - FALLOUT 3 Power Armor Training in the Beginning of the Game

this will show you how to do it.
