The Hei Gui Chinese Stealth Armor is an armor originally worn by the elite Chinese Crimson Dragoon troops, as well as the Black Ghost counterinsurgency/terror units before and during the Great War.

The armor has active camouflage systems that, when the player is crouched, generate a modulating field that transmits the reflected light from one side of an object to the other, making a person much harder to notice (but not completely invisible). This technology was the basis for the unstable "Stealth Boy" wrist units developed in the U.S.[1]


Chinese Stealth Armor was used during the Chinese invasion of Alaska and was the Chinese solution to invasion by U.S. forces in power armor.

Earlier Hei Gui models were also used during raids against the Hoover Dam secret laboratory and Limit-115 laboratory[2].


  • The Hei Gui Stealth Armor was originally going to appear in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. It was the step up from UAF armor with its small stealth bonus.
  • It also appears in the Operation: Anchorage Fallout 3 add-on pack. It is obtainable from the sealed armory inside the Brotherhood Outcast Outpost once Operation: Anchorage has been completed. Once worn it will increase your Sneak skill by +15 and if crouching, will also apply a +5 stealth field which can be seen in 3rd person view. It can be repaired using Recon Armor. You are also allowed to equip any headwear. Any headgear that you equip will be invisible when you go into sneak mode with the Chinese Stealth Armor equipped.


  • In Chinese, Hei Gui (黑鬼) literally means "Black Ghost". Literally, Hei (黑) means black, dark, etc., and Gui (鬼) means ghost, apparition, demon, etc. It can be used to denote a person of bad character.


  • In first person, if you reload a one-hand weapon while wearing the Chinese Stealth Armor, you will see part of the armor. This is a texture glitch and has no effect on gameplay.
  • You can stack endless amounts of headgear onto your character while wearing this suit, and when you are completed, you may change you armor and all your headgear may still be equipped.


  • See the special section in this article's discussion page for using the beneficial infinite head wear glitch.
  • There is a Chinese Red Star on the back of the lower neck.
