Fallout Tactics Coppertops - a special encounter, reference to a special movie. Coppertops is a special encounter in Fallout Tactics. In a secret warehouse several humans (conveniently called “batteries”) are running on treadmills to produce energy, more specifically to charge small energy cells, for the Calculator's army. Supervising them there's a non-hostile robot.
The gloating robot is not hostile unless you attack him. Even opening the lockers will not initiate combat. Each treadmill has a locker that you can lockpick and get 200 small energy cells, for a total of 1200 energy cells. They also slowly regenerate over time.
The “human batteries” will beg you to kill them, but doing so will give you huge amounts of negative Karma, so don't do it. You're a good guy/girl, right?
This special encounter in Fallout Tactics is a reference to the 1999 science fiction movie The Matrix. And that's all we've got on the Fallout Tactics special encounter Coppertops. That's it for today, wastelanders! Stay tuned for more Fallout Facts coming up soon...
