Agricola mining robot are robots found in the Midwest in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios.


They are extremely well-armored and, more importantly, use vacuum tubes instead of integrated microcircuits like most technology in the Fallout universe. This technology also makes them almost impervious to the electromagnetic pulse weapons that are deadly to other robots. Agricola robots are most often equipped with drills and lasers for cutting rock, that are quite effective when used against human beings.


Built for a pre-Great War uranium mining waste disposal concern, they can often be found in abandoned mines and nuclear waste facilities across the American wastelands.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Agricola is Latin for "farmer".
  • It might also be a reference to Georgius Agricola, a German scientist considered to be the father of mineralogy, who wrote De re metallica, a revolutionary book about mining at the time.
