Hey I recently found your channel and I love it I ended up playing fallout 4 again as I was disappointed with the direction of fallout 76 I like the game I just would have preferred a single player RPG that reused fallout 4s assets like obsidian did with new Vegas 2 years after fallout 3 but that’s besides the point I started playing fallout 4 again after not liking it much initially but your videos have given me a much higher appreciation for the games and given me a lot more excitement for fallout 76 being as the lore is told via the environment rather than npcs and my friends always rush through everything so I don’t get to read everything now I can just watch your videos and learn all the lore and enjoy playing with my friends I find myself watching your fallout 4 videos then going to check it out for myself in game so thanks.
I blow it up, it gives you 2 fusion cores, so you can get 3 fusion cores just in that place, over you can get around 6 fusion cores just in sanctuary area, one near red rocket in the mole rat den, 3 in the junkyard, 1 at the satellite array place, and 1 in the museum in concord, along with the fat man and mini nuke in the junkyard, it seems to be a good start of an explosive heavy weapon build to me
I dont know why these videos are so popular..
Its literally just, observing something ingame and then going on a 20 minute speculative rambling.
And then feigning a "dramatic voice" by lowering and coarsing it, and then saying "Or is it?"
Actually you can riselect a destination, but you have have to select another place first, it is reasonable because technically the sentry should patrol a destination's perimeter so that would make useless to select again the place while on patrol. However in my runs the robot obeyed only to the first destination that i gave.
I dont think they would regulary dispose such an Robot with Full Arm, Energie and Ammo on regular Disposal Place.
They would repair the Prototype or use the expensive Parts for other Sentry bots. My theories are:
1. It was an illegal Project:
To hide an illegal project fast they just send him in a night and fog action away. If nothing happends ok, if something happends and Police have to kill this Bot, everybody would expect an Civil Type of Sentry Bot, couse they look same.
2. It was stolen from army:
After one hat stolen him, they had scare tht it get detect, so they send him away
3. The Scientiest who create him had problems with statistics:
Couse they failed and burned money several times, they sended the bot illegaly away to hide another mistake and to dont loose theire own job.
As to why the sentry was there, as the sentry is common knowledge and it was already in mass production. It seems logical that they would dispose of the prototype since they no longer used it and as for the holotape, it is easier to just use the original tape when disposing of it rather than great a new one. Honestly you were looking way to deep into this robot.
The reason the remote sentry was dumped off was because, as you said, it can't problem solve to save its own life, much less anyone else's, therefore they dumped it off at the most convenient location possible: the robotics disposal site
Maybe the reason the guy wasn't in the power armor is because there was no fusion core. He knew the core was almost out or was empty and knew that IF he did survive in the power armor he would end up slowly dying in there. He chose a fast death rather than slow
My theory is that the sentrybot malfunctioned and caused a death during testing but the USAF didn't want to reimburse Robco for destroying the robot and just kind of swept it under the rug and dumped it at what was basically a landfill for robots and hoped nobody would ever bring it up
Just started my first Survival playthrough and the first thing I did was grab the power armor at the crashed Vertibird, and then use the sentry bot to help clear out USAF Olivia, then had him self destruct for the two fusion cores. Very useful at low level.
Maybe they were hiding the bot so that they could use it as backup. They send a bunch of decommisoned bots to a junkyard, and one real bot. Then you could have a bunch of bots in junkyards if you ever need reinforcements.
There's a slight discrepency in the operating capacity of the Prototype mk IV than with the standard-issue Sentries - this thing overheats just walking around, standard Sentries only overheat in combat.
As to the people involved, we know there are a number of smaller companies in the setting that were working on military side projects - this might well be one of their works, an attempt to test some upgrades, which is why the thing overheats just moving around. The suits could well be Chinese Spies, as you pointed out. They could also be DARPA guys dumping the bot because dismantling it or destroying it would incur additional costs, and they figure nobody's gonna look for it in the middle of nowhere.
A more likely explanation for the redacted bits is that this Sentry bot was built by the USAF itself in an attempt to replicate ROBCO 's bots and reduce their dependence on ROBCO. Steal the plans and try to fabricate their own little horde of combat robots. The hardware would be easy to come by, but the software is a different matter. There is nothing wrong with the weapons and targeting, but the navigation and power management is loaded with bugs. Without the ability to properly debug the operating system, it's worthless. They found a small disposal facility and buried the project. before ROBCO found out about it.
I was playing fallout 4 i was heading to diamond city i was a level 3 or 4 and i had codsworth with me and i saw kellog and his dogo with him and i saw him as a enemy cuz i use VATS if i hear danger and i was just going still and i love your vids so once i turned around and a mini nuke went off and i really did not know what happed so i ran untill i figued out he was a boss so i ran all the way to diamond city
It was the dia/ government that placed it there as a cover in preparation of an invasion or attack. Strategic and inconspicuous location. Then to be activated by agents to defend key military bases around Boston. It was meant to be used, it's a full functioning unit. If scrapped, then there would be no need to include the command holo tape.
Even our government does not throw away weapons with slight malfunctions but still in working order, and anyone trying to "get rid of it" could have more easily set it to auto self destruct. I find it more likely, they were placing it there for someone to pick up later (like someone stated earlier) to be repurposed for covert means. It could be reprogrammed then.
Ignoring the wartime espionage done by the Chinese in the Fallout universe, the sentrybot prototype could be a government sanctioned knockoff by General Atomics. Since Robco has the patent for the regular sentrybot, they could dictate the price. If the United States military could get General Atomics the ability to make their own copies, with the sentrybot prototype as being the proof-of-concept to General Atomics' capabilities, they could get better prices.
The sentrybot's overheat, which people tell me is too fast, could be proof that someone other than Robco made it. General Atomics is the only other major robotics company in the USA. Maybe the scheme ended when the sentrybot was deemed inferior in quality. Maybe the cause of the faster overheat was a stronger energy system that outpaced the Robco design. Maybe if the Great War hadn't happened, General Atomics may have rolled out a hybrid Mister Gutsy/Sentrybot hybrid. Imagine that, a floating sentrybot with a gattling laser or a gauss gun.
Disclaimer: This is all speculation. I have never done in-depth research into Fallout lore and am only voicing an idea that seemed plausible.
i think most (if not all) of the issues with the robots usability are unintentional. probably bethesda failing to make a good ai.
due to reasons you already mentioned, i'm pretty sure that this particular sentry bot was not made by robco, or at least not entirely. as you already said, robco's products, including the sentry bot, were already well known, so if robco was really the company behind this one, there would not have been any reason to hide things.
additionally, the people who used it, were most likely not usaf. as you said, the usaf is listed in the very beginning, so why does it have to be redacted in the rest of all the text? doesn't make much sense. i think it is more likely that the usaf was the initial entity who gave the order to build this prototype and who paid for it but it was ultimately supposed to be used by a different entity, a more secretive branch of the military.
the reason why it got sent to the disposal site is still a mystery. maybe undercover chinese agents took it, like you said. maybe there was some unknown issue with some of the prototype-technology that made it neccessary to get rid of this robot. i mean, really, what's so special about it apart from the fact that there's this holotape and you can give orders to it? doesn't really seem to behave very different from any other regular sentry bot? they must have taken the more advanced prototype-technology out before they brought it to the disposal. either because they really were chinese agents or because the company (or companies) that was/were responsible for making it needed to work a little more on the experimental technology.
Just a theory but what if the sentry bot was used to “deal with” civil unrest as we know from the Boston bugle that the city was having food problems and food was rationed and massacres of civilians were becoming more common by the military as the people were getting angry. Maybe just maybe the robot was used to stop one of the riots but in an attempt to prevent any hate against robco they just attempted to dispose of it quickly to somewhere where no one will look and kept the workers quiet by looking menacing.
When booting the robot up it immediately turned on me.. but it didn’t target you. Could it be a coincidence? Or could it be from the chinese suit you’re wearing? It may think you’re a ally (chinese operative). Just a theory
Why foes bethesda always strive to make very uncool looking armour and outfits? It really started in skyrim but come fo4 it was apauling! Look at foNV the guy on the cover looks bad ass! Why do they force us to use mods? I just dont get it!
Well let me tell you this in closing
The MIBs might seem imposing
But trust me if they ever show in your section
Believe me, it's for your own protection
Cause they see things that you need not see
And they be places that you need not be
So go with your life forget that Roswell crap
Show love to the black suit cause that's the Men In...that's the Men In...
