The AMS testing site is a location in the Ash Heap region of Appalachia in 2103. Its main purpose was to search for new veins of ultracite.

Background[edit | edit source]

An abandoned testing site where Atomic Mining Services perfected their excavation technology and non-human workforce,[1] the site was shut down after the test launch went awry and produced no usable ultracite.[2]

Layout[edit | edit source]

Entering from the main entrance from the west, there is a small metal building to the north, the interior contains minor loot. A rail track runs south to north through the middle of the site, from a large metal building to a collapsed mine shaft used to search for ultracite. Rail cars along the track are loaded with barrels of nuclear waste.

The large metal prep building's interior has a weapons workbench on the eastern wall, a tinker's workbench, chemistry station, and two power armor stations. The furthest power armor station may have a chassis with T-series power armor. Information on the site can be found on a note across the room from the power armor stations. The exterior southern wall of this building has a fusion generator with a possible fusion core to loot.

Two beige and orange pods can be found east of the rail track. The first contains a searchable chem box and a Picklock level 2 safe. The second contains a searchable chem container.
