When activating a protectron in Fallout 4 you get the chance to choose its Personality Mode. The available modes are:
- Subway Steward
- Law Enforcement
- Fire Brigadier
- Medical Responder
- Construction Worker
Do these modes serve any purpose ? Is there any actual difference in the protectron behavior ?
The different Protectron Modes exhibit demonstrably different behavior and combat capabilities.
Construction Worker Mode enforces workplace safety laws with deadly force. Specifically, it will attack anyone not wearing a hard hat (though it seems several other types of helms will also qualify).
Law Enforcement Mode will not attack you if you don’t have a weapon drawn.
Medical Responder Mode does not appear to be hostile unless attacked, and when engaged in combat, will melee with it’s “defibrillating” shock hands.
