Just because you can run some errands doesn't mean you belong here. You got a lot more to prove to be one of us.

Axel is a member of the Raiders residing in the Crater.


Axel joined the raiders at some point before their return to Appalachia. He guards the main bridge into the Crater.

He is generally honest but will lie to protect those he cares about.[1] Once, he protected Creed from being beaten by Surge for cheating during a card game by covering for him and was beaten himself.[2] He will even risk death or exile by covering for his girlfriend Barb.[3]

From Russia With Lev


From Russia With Lev: Axel can be interrogated to determine who the snitch is. Despite his assertion that he is the traitor, he is merely covering for someone and is not, in fact, the snitch.



Axel appears in Fallout 76, introduced in the Wastelanders update.


  1. Vault Dweller: "What's the scoop on Axel?"
    Meg Groberg: "Good kid. Seems to be pretty honest, unless he’s protecting someone he cares about. Then, he’s got a reliable tendency to lie for them and be the fall guy."
    (Meg Groberg's dialogue)
  2. Creed: "Heh, more than you'd think. He'd rather get in trouble himself than see someone else suffer. Why, just a couple weeks back, I was playing cards, and I may have used some slight of hand to give myself an edge. Surge figured it out, but Axel stepped in and told her he slipped me an extra ace card when he was dealing. Saved my ass, but got his own beat. Then Barb ratted on him, told Surge he was just lying to protect me, and Surge just beat his ass again."
    (Creed's dialogue)
  3. Vault Dweller: "Any chance she could be working for Lev?"
    Axel: "What? No, that's crazy! I'm the one working for Lev, not Barb!"
    Vault 76 resident: "I don't believe you'd risk exile or death for someone you’re having a little fling with. It has to be someone else."
    Axel: "Whoa, uh... no need to go asking anyone else any questions. Really, it was me!"
    (Axel's dialogue)
