When we found this place, they helped us get on our feet. Gave us food. You know, Didn't even ask for nothin' back. And we've been cookin' up a plan to get that pump working again so we can flush out that grody sludge. As a way to say thanks. Don't go spilling the beans that the Atom Cats have a heart or somethin'.Zeke

The Atom Cats garage is a location appearing in the Commonwealth in 2287.[1]

LayoutEdit

Formerly a Red Rocket gas station, the building has been occupied by the Atom Cats, a gang with expertise in armor modifications, particularly power armor mods. A power armor station is located here for repairs, modifications and swapping parts.

The signature Atom Cats custom paint job can be purchased by speaking to Rowdy, the power armor dealer.

The area is a goldmine for power armor and accessories, including T-60 power armor, with two suits (minus the helmet, both located on the same chassis) being available to the Sole Survivor without engaging in combat, plus X-01 power armor parts sometimes available for purchase from Rowdy. Another three suits and an empty power armor frame can be obtained from killing the Atom Cats.

A named eyebot, Peepers, flies circuits of the gas station, acting as a mobile radio station.

Notable lootEdit

  • Fusion core - In a generator outside the main building.
  • Unarmed bobblehead - On the hood of a car in the main building.
  • Hot Rodder issue #2 - In the trailer towards the northeast with two pink flamingos.
  • Atom Cats T-60 power armor (owned, without the helmet) - In the far back behind two laser tripwires. Two sets of power armor are on the same frame. The second set of parts will disappear when one enters the frame.
  • Cats poetry night tape 1, tape 2 and tape 3 are found in the compound. The first one is in the trailer home to the east, the second one is on the counter at the bar and the third one is on the nightstand next to the bed in the back room of the garage with two power armor stations.
  • Power armor frame (owned) - Inside the garage. However, if the garage is attacked by Gunners it is not uncommon for a member of the Atom Cats to use it for combat. Once they enter the frame, there's a chance that they won't exit it afterward.
  • Atom Cats custom paint job - Sold by Rowdy.
  • Vault-Tec lunchbox - At the end of the catwalk leading from the roof of the hardware warehouse where the bobblehead was found. In front of a radio, and a toy alien can be found next to it.
  • Quincy survivor's note - Just south of the garage, on a rowboat with two suitcases, a lunch pail, and a skeleton. The note is inside one of the suitcases.
  • Zeke's jacket and jeans - Given by Zeke after completing the Atom Cats quest.

NotesEdit

  • Duke, an Atom Cats member, can be found via random encounter in various locations scrounging for parts in a car, such as between two broken parts of the raised highway leading into west Boston, below the broken highway overpass east of Mass Pike Interchange or north of Lake Quannapowitt heading to Recon bunker Theta. He can also be found southeast of Vault 111, near a blue car between two pylons, or even at the outskirts of Fort Hagen, near the Relay Tower. He marks the location of Atom Cats garage on the map.
  • If the Sole Survivor initiates combat with any of the Atom Cats, there is a slight chance one will yell out "Atom Cats rule!", a reference to Fallout 3, where the Tunnel Snakes gang leader Butch DeLoria says the line "Tunnel Snakes rule." The quote "Atom Cats Rule" can also be found on Zeke's terminal.
  • The radios in the Atom Cats Garage are not synchronized with the Sole Survivor's Pip-Boy radio. For example, while a radio in the garage is playing one song, a different song or one of Travis's news announcements will be heard on the Pip-Boy radio.
  • If a companion is seen entering a suit of armor taken from the group, they will become hostile, but if the Sole Survivor enters, they will ignore them.
  • There is only one unowned bed at the garage, within the gas station itself, behind a yellow curtain.
  • If an enemy engages in combat, one of the Atom Cats members may enter a set of power armor if it is powered by a fusion core.
  • At this location, there is a race track set up for power armor. A number of unused AI packages and scenes were to be used to hold a drag race between the Sole Survivor and the Atom Cats. This is where the companions were to make comments, but these comments were cut from the game.

Character Comment
Cait "There's nothing quite like the smell of power armor grease and testosterone."
Codsworth "I wonder what they're doing. Racing, you suppose?"
Curie "This is just like a movie. Soon will they break into song?"
Danse "Now that's a perfectly good waste of Power Armor."
Deacon "All right, I don't say this often, but that is bad ass."
John Hancock "Now these boys know how to have some fun."
Nick Valentine "Those are some real flashy killing machines."
Piper Wright "It's certainly the most benign use of Power Armor I've come across, that's for sure."
Preston Garvey "Haha, nice. I bet you'd like one of those suits."
Robert MacCready "This is just about the coolest thing I've ever seen."
X6-88 "It's looks like one of them is chasing the other one. Must be a fight."

AppearancesEdit

The Atom Cats garage appears only in Fallout 4.

BugsEdit

  • PCIcon pc Playstation 4Icon ps4 Xbox OneIcon xboxone A Brotherhood lancer may appear and cannot be killed but doesn't attack, preventing one from interacting with any Atom Cats, as they will continue to attack the Lancer. This will not allow you to complete or start any Atom Cats quest since one will not be able to interact at all with any of the Atom Cats. [verified]
  • PCIcon pc Playstation 4Icon ps4 When trying to repair broken or damaged pieces of power armor using the repair station, the pieces may transfer to the owned power armor frame next to the empty repair station, and they will be marked as "owned" by the Atom Cats, and trying to reclaim your property will turn them hostile.[verified]

Be sure to get on the Cats’ good side, daddio, as Rowdy offers some choice Power Armor mods. Zeke’s terminal (Novice) is worth a hack. Their Holotape poetry? An acquired taste."
