The Sheriff's Duster and Sheriff's Hat are pieces of clothing in Fallout 3. Both suit and hat are worn by Lucas Simms, the Megaton Sheriff, and the hat is also worn by Sonora Cruz. As a unique variant of the Regulator Duster, the outfit bears resemblance to a trench coat, adorned with a silver sheriff's badge on the chest.

The duster provides a damage resistance of 5 as well as bonuses of 1 to Charisma and 5 to Small Guns. The hat has a DR of 1 and a bonus of 1 to Perception. Both cannot be repaired except by merchants.



Duster and hat can be found on the body of Lucas Simms, after he has died, been killed by the player character or reverse-pickpocketed. They are easily obtained by not saving Simms from Mister Burke's attack in The Power of Atom.

The hat can also be acquired from Sonora Cruz by reverse-pickpocketing if you have the Lawbringer perk.

NPC reactions

  • Jericho will say "That badge don't impress me, kid."
  • Harden Simms isn't impressed either: "You might wear his badge, but you're not my dad."
  • Colin Moriarty comments that "You got a lot of nerve wearing that badge in here."

Other NPCs treat you as de facto sheriff:
