You probably don't read these from videos this old any more, but I have a theory about it. It's just my opinion.
The robot has four preprogrammed locations to send it to. My opinion is they left it there as a back up plan. More than likely, someone from the DoD or DATFL would have known about it, and in the event of invasion, they could send this to a location that needed reinforcement or had high value for them. While they redacted commonly known information, that wasn't the point, it was just a back up plan.
Just my idea however
I think you dropped the ball with this one Ox - you missed a lot, and a lot of connections. You need to connect this to other terminal entries at various sites. I'll give you a hint... who runs/owns the junkyards in RL? The garbage companies... and we all know who they REALLY are. And there are at least four junkyards in FO4 (and a shipping yard, which I think is also pertinent).
Wait oxhorn I hacked an sentry bot and the thing that it does every few seconds after I destroyed the mark4 and it did the same thing ...Are the game files glitching or do all of the sentry bots do the same thing
When I told him to go to the Satellite Array in my game, he went as far as Quincy, I think it was, and then got stuck on a junk fence and promptly teleported back to where I found him. What a useless warmachine.
if you're low level then just go to the junk yard and take the fatman and the mininuke self explode the sentrybot and head back to the virtabird with the power armor and you've got a suit of power armor and a fatman with a mininuke pretty much the second you walk out of the vault.
I seem to remember this being a big attraction when FO4 was released. Many people were disappointed because the sentry bot was utterly rubbish with pathfinding AI and attacking targets. My thoughts are Bethesda messed it up. The idea was to give you a temporary and powerful companion to clear out 4 locations early game. Such a shame they messed it up because it would have been a neat early game piece of content. Perhaps the whole men in Black and disposal of it was in reference to the fact the coders knew the bots AI was rubbish and they just used this as a reference to why the bot sucked and abandoned it, the men in black being a metaphor to the coders who couldn't get the AI to work correctly?
I hacked it once an made it a temporary companion then I left to do something else and pretty much forgot about it. Then much much later it just rolled in to the Mechanist Lair (after I'd taken it over) and more or less just hung out there. Whenever I went there, there it was, I named it "Fred". I've done this a few times on different characters and yeah it does follow you...just really really slowly.
I got the robotics perk that gives you the option to command robots. If you hack this guy he makes a great defender provided you are prepared to walk, he doesn´t come with you if you fast travel. He fantastic agains outside areas like Big joes disposal (I think that´s the correct name) and the Boston city general area.
I think the men in black where from a group doing research and had such an embarassingly bad fuckup with this sentry bot research they decided to hide the result by dumping it somewhere not alot of people would notice it.
well people think men in black r ailens in suits so the ailens wanted to look in to our tec and found the sentry bot and then got its blueprints and put it in the dumpster so the army would frame those dudes
Since the program it the mkIV comes with involves defending local installations, maybe they were planting it there to defend the area because they knew the war was coming to the US and it was redacted so locals wouldn't panic?
Yea he is right that's why it has a worse heat thing they needed better cooling for whatever reason (maybe for a very radioactive nuke because maybe if it over heated it would blow up and maybe this was the most effective one they could find
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.
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.
