The Brotherhood of Steel was a Techno-Religious organization created after The Great war. Their true objectives were to find any old technology from before The Great War, but Owyn Lyons believed that the Brotherhood should help the people of DC with their struggles against the Super Mutant. The Brotherhood of Steel was well known in D.C for fighting off the Super-Mutants and The Enclave. The founder of the Brotherhood of Steel was Captain Roger Maxson of the United States Army. He was a member of a military team commanded by Colonel Robert Spindel, originally sent to the West-Tek research facility on January 3, 2076 by the U.S. Army to monitor the experiments being conducted there by West-Tek on behalf of the American government in the interest of national security. On January 7, 2077, all West-Tek military research was moved to the newly-constructed Mariposa Military Base, along with Spindel's team, to enhance the research's security.
On October 10, 2077 Captain Maxson and his men discovered, to their horror, that the West-Tek scientists at Mariposa were using military prisoners as involuntary test subjects in their experiments with the genetically-engineered Forced Evolutionary Virus. Morale in the base broke down, and Colonel Spindel suffered a mental breakdown, eventually committing suicide five days later. Captain Maxson's men turned to him for leadership in the midst of the crisis.
After interrogating Robert Anderson, the chief scientist on the West-Tek research team, and learning about the extent of their scientific experiments on military prisoners, Maxson executed Anderson and many of the other scientists. Maxson, now in control of Mariposa, declared himself to be in full desertion from the U.S. Army via radio on October 20, 2077. Strangely, he got no response from the Army chain-of-command, as the rest of the Army was too busy fighting the Chinese threat. Three days later, on October 23, 2077, the nuclear arsenals of both sides were launched, and the Great War ended two hours after it started, with most of the Earth reduced to a radioactive wasteland.
The Mariposa Military Base survived the nuclear exchange that devastated the United States, the soldiers within protected from the radiation and FEV flooding into the newly created Wasteland by the base's highly-effective nuclear, biological and chemical weapons protection protocols. Two days later at Mariposa, on October 25, 2077, an Army scout in power armor (Platner) was sent out to get specific readings on the atmosphere. He reported no significant amounts of radiation in the area surrounding the facility. After burying the bodies of the executed scientists in the wastes outside of Mariposa the soldiers sealed the military base, then headed out into the desert, taking supplies and weapon schematics from the base with them. Captain Maxson led his men and their families to the government fallout bunker at Lost Hills in California ("the Exodus"). In November 2077, after a few weeks in the Wasteland, the soldiers and their families arrived at the Lost Hills bunker. However, they suffered many casualties along the way from the terrible conditions of the Wasteland, including Maxson's wife (but not his teenage son). The Lost Hills bunker became the headquarters of the newly formed paramilitary organization that Maxson created and named the Brotherhood of Steel, intending to use its resources to eventually rebuild human civilization—no matter the cost. The Brotherhood of Steel has characteristics similar to that of today's military such as standard armor (T-45d power armor or T-51b power armor), to standard weapons (laser rifle and the laser pistol), to standard ammunition (microfusion cells, small energy cells and electron charge packs). They also have training similar to that of recruit basic military training and trade training, have a chain of command, various bases, supply their own troops and have distinct branches/trades (i.e. Paladins and Scribes) that cover combat and support roles within the organization.

Battle vs. SPARTAN III (by ValorWarrior)Edit
No battle will be written.
The Brotherhood of Steel were judged the winner by a very large margin due to the more advanced weaponry they carried- almost exclusively using laser and plasma weaponry while the SPARTANs used traditional firearms, their more disciplined and experienced teamwork and strategies and their superior powered armor.
Battle vs. Zombies Team (by Urbancommando77)Edit
No battle will be written.
The Brotherhood of Steel were determined to be the winners in a landslide, due in large part to their powered armor compared to the lack of armor of their opponents, a more versatile and advanced selection of accurate and deadly weaponry and the ease of use of their equipment.
Battle vs. Predator (by Urbancommando77)Edit
Predator: 5 BOS: 5
A group of BOS soldiers are walking through D.C. when they see a big ship land. One of them pulls out his plasma rifle and fires at one of the "things" walk out, but narrowly misses. The "thing" turns out to be a predator. The predator fires his plasma caster at him, killing him.
The predator fires his caster again, but misses. One soldier pulls out his gattling laser and fires at the predator. Its so inaccurate that it misses all but six lasers. He charges at the predator and fires ten lasers into him. The soldier sees green stuff come out of the laser holes and realizes that its blood and fires six more lasers, killing him.
The rest of the predators charge from the ship. One hurls a smart disk at a soldier, denting his helmet. The soldier throws his helmet but the predator throws another one at him but misses. The soldier fires his pistol at him sevaral times.
A predator hurls his combi stick at him, killing him.
The predator pulls out another combi stick and charges at the soldiers only getting killed just before he reached the soldiers.
Another predator charges at them and stabs one and gets pelted, killing them both.
Predator: 1 BOS: 2
The last predator sees one coming at him firing his plasma rifle, missing most of the shots. The predator uses his wrists blades to smash the soldier's visor. The soldier fires two shots into the predator, who impales the soldier in the stomach.
The last soldier runs into a ruined building and pulls out his combat knife. The predator follows him and once he found him, stabbed him but only dents his armor. The soldier cuts the predator in the chest. The predator stands up and stabs the soldier in the helmet, breaking it. The soldier throws his helm at the predator knocking him down. The predator looks at the helmet and throws it back. The predator stands up and impales him.
The predator takes off his helmet and uses his med kit. As he walks to the ship he roars in victory.
"The predator had better weapons."
Rematch vs. Predator (by Dr. Las Moore)Edit
The original battle was deemed not up to modern wiki standards- the votes were short, often filled with bias and a lack of understanding of both warriors and woefully lacking in author moderation, leading to a result that befit neither warrior.
Battle vs. Daleks (by Tomahawk23)Edit
No battle will be written.
The better protection, better weaponry, greater technology and far greater intellect and tactics allowed the robotic Daleks to overpower the Brotherhood of Steel Paladins in combat.
Battle vs. STAG (by Undead RVD)Edit
In an abandoned city in the Mojave Wasteland
“What do you think is going on here, Captain?”
Six Heavily armored men wielding massive weapons are walking through and half-destroyed city area. Their armor has an insignia on it: A sword with a pair of wings behind it and circle with three gears in it being held by the wings. These men are Brotherhood of Steel Paladins.
The Captian responds to his underling’s question: “The Scholars have been getting strange radiation readings that are similar to that of worm holes.”
“Worm holes are holes in time and space that connect from one part of time and space to another.”
“Are these things rare, sir?”
“Very rare. That’s why we are checking them out.”
They continue walking through the barley standing city area. The Captain is armed with a Gauss Rifle. The Paladine that was talking to him was armed with a Tri-Beam Laser Rifle. The other four soldiers are armed too: two armed with Gatling Lasers, one with a Tri-Beam Laser Rifle and one with a Missile Launcher.
They continue searching and they keep their weapons at hand. As they are going, the captain starts to get a strange feeling that something has changed. He looks around and realizes something very strange: The City that was around them is now intact. They are tall, clean and perfectly intact.
“Stop! Men, get into position. Something is wrong!”
The rest of the men are looking around and are horribly confused. The Captain is able to talk them down and they continue onward.
“What the hell is happening?”
“We must have walked through a worm hole.”
“But how did we? Wouldn’t have we seen it?”
“Maybe worm holes are not as easy to notice as we hope.”
In the city of Steelport
A STAG Condor is seen flying down into Loren Square. From the back, 65 STAG operatives hop out. Two are carrying S3X Hammers, one with a McManus 2015, one with an Annihilator RPG and one with a Viper Laser Rifle. A sixth one, the Team leader, hops out, also armed a Viper Laser Rifle.
They have been sent in to investigate and combat anything they find. There has been many attacks already do to strange creatures. The area has been blocked out and barricaded. They secure the area and go in.
Meanwhile, the Paladins are still wandering around. They are still dumbfounded. The place is so big, so intact, and so clean. Well, cleaner. However, their amazement is cut short. A gun shot is heard and a large force hits the captain of the team. The Paladins help the Captain up and take positions.
From atop a nearby Friendly Fire, the STAG operative takes pop shots with his McManus 2015. The Paladins run for cover and take positions. The sniper is too far away for any of the Paladins to take aim. All but one. The Captain aims his Gauss Rifle carefully. He doesn’t have unlimited rounds. Cautiously, the Paladin Captain has the STAG sniper in his sights. Everything is right. He pulls the trigger. The energized bullet flies out. The STAG operative doesn’t have any time. The bullet blasts through the Operatives head, splattering his brains about.
The Paladins charge up. They are soon met with open fire. The STAG Operatives charge ahead, too. The STAG leader aims his Laser Rifle and is able to hit one of the Brotherhood Paladins, armed with a Tri-Beam Laser Rifle, in the visor and blast through his eye, killing him.
The Paladins shoot back. The two with Gatling Lasers plow through two of the STAG operatives. One of the STAG soldiers with a S3X Hammer fires enough rounds into one of the Gatling Laser Paladins to punch through his armor and kill him.
One Paladin fires his Tri-Beam Laser Rifle into the STAG shotgunner in the head and blow out his brains. The Paladins start to fall back as they don’t know what else there could be. The STAG operative with the RPG takes aim and hits two Paladins, killing them. One Paladin fires his Missile Launcher at the STAG operative, blowing him to smithereens. The STAG leader then fires several lasers into the Missile Launcher Paladin until he goes down. However he overheated his rifle.
The remaining Paladin finds his men dead and keeps moving. The STAG Leader pulls out his KA1-Kobra and fires at him, waiting for his rifle to cool down. He finds it isn’t working as the bullets just bounce right off him. The Paladin fires back with his Gauss Rifle but he can’t get a good clear shot. He pulls out his Laser Pistol and fires back. Once the rifle is cooled down, the STAG leader gives chase. They run for a short while until the STAG leader and looks around in confusion: The city they are in is destroyed. The Skyscrapers are destroyed, there is ruble everywhere and the smell of death and radiation is in the air.
“What in God’s name…”
“Never seen this place before, have you?”
The STAG leader turns around, aiming his Viper Laser Rifle, to find the Paladin Captain aiming his Gauss Rifle at him.
“What kind of hell hole is this?”
“This is Earth in many years. Do you want to know what happened?”
“I’m not here to talk! I’m turning you in! There have been many attacks in our city and you know what is going on.”
“Sorry but I don’t. I’m just a soldier. You know we could just leave, not have to kill each other. You and your men have advanced technology and could help the people of this world."
“STAG is in Steelport to eradicate the criminals and menace that plague it! You are going down.”
The STAG leader fires but not before the Brotherhood captain leaps out of the way and behind some ruble. The STAG fires out multiple rounds at the Brotherhood member. The Paladin can’t do anything. Then, the lasers stop. The STAG Leader looks at his gun. It has overheated again. Before he could do anything, though, the Paladin stands up and takes a well put shot. The STAG member can only watch a bullet flies into his head. His head explodes from the round.
The Brotherhood member lowers his gun. “Why do you assholes always have to be so stubborn?” And with that, the Paladin captain puts his rifle to his back and walks back to his base.
STAG had incredibly advanced weapons and were better trained and had better finesse but The Brotherhood of Steel had much more reliable weapons, greater intelligence and far better training. They also used their weapons better and would devise better tactics than “Shoot until it’s not moving”. Stag couldn’t win.
