Power Armor is great if you find a Hauling Frame. If you find Lab Journal - Herrera, you can find the recipe for the Power Armor Interface and Power Armor Interface MKII.
Power Armor will not save you from a Tank Drone’s HEAT rounds if they hit you directly, because those bypass normal damage calculations and insta-kill you, like Landmines. The same might go for C4 at PBR, I’m not sure.
Speaking of which, has anyone found the new Solar Panels CBM yet? I tried crafting a set, but the game deleted it upon re-opening the game, because the craftable CBM is still apparently the old version.
