Robophobia! in The Outer Worlds is a Flaw. Flaws are negative attributes that are acquired from certain causes, players are given the chance to accept or reject the flaw which is permanently applied to the player's stats if the player chooses to accept it.


Automechanicals now give you the willies, and when they’re attacking your party you’re not as effective as you should be.

      This is a defect as far as I am concerned. It states it is only when being attacked. It happens whenever there is any around even if dead! This is a defect that should be fixed.

        "Robophobia! is acquired if the player encounter or gets attacked too many times by Automechanicals" So basically every player ever will get this at some point? I thought I was special when I got it and came here to see why I got it. Is the amount you need to encounter them randomized at least or is it a specific amount? Knowing you only have to encounter them to trigger this kinda ruined it for me, I thought it was extremely cool that you can develop phobias if something specific happens but doesn't seem so cool now.

          Its not permanent. Double check your facts before we start a mass panic. Only activates when robo's are nearby. This includes SAM btw...which is hilarious.

            warning: the in-game description is wrong. It applies whenever you are near a automechs (friendly or not), not just when you're being attacked by one.
