The Brotherhood of Steel is a technocratic organization stemming from the remnants of the pre-war American military. Originally espousing the mandate of securing and protecting advanced pre-war technology, divergent interpretations of this ideal have resulted in schisms within the organization, with different factions in a relatively concentrated area having far different applications of this goal. Due to a multitude of factors, the power and influence of western chapters of the Brotherhood has eroded significantly in the years since their founding, with many considering them to be little more than glorified bandits.
Divisions active in the Mojave Wasteland Edit
Tged radically from the insularity typical of the western chapters, allowing outsiders into their ranks and working with local communities to improve living standards in the wastes. Originally dispatched to make contact with the Mojave chapter, the East coast BOS found no trace of their brethren at either Helios-One or the remains of Hidden Valley, being harried by tunnelers and crazed survivors.
In Dust Edit
The Mojave BOS has bunkered down in in Fort Searchlight, fitting many building with Laser Turrets and establishing patrols of Protectrons as support. Brotherhood forces consist of Initiates and Knights armed in recon armor or T-45d Power Armor as well as a single Paladin wearing T-51b Power Armor, located in what used to be Pvt. Edward's house. They are all armed with heavy weapon or energy weapons. Their base at Fort Searchlight is one of the few sources of Power Armor in Fallout: Dust, and is well-stocked with weapons and supplies.
The East Coast Brotherhood expedition can be encountered at the Emergency Railyard Station, and will be non-hostile to the player, even if they have vilified status with the BOS.
The Big MT BOS appear in the Big MT crater, where they are in a state of war with a group of survivors known as tech scavengers. They will attack any survivor on sight.
