For an overview of the Boston Bugle, see Boston Bugle.


The Boston Bugle building is a location in the Commonwealth in 2287.


Before the Great War, this building was the main headquarters of the Boston Bugle newspaper company.


The Boston Bugle building has a relatively small interior. The door accessed from the street leads into a lobby area with a receptionist desk and an elevator. The elevator leads into an office area with a collapsed floor. This area will be guarded by a single, hostile Protectron. On the same level as the Protectron is a terminal, as well as another one on the lower floor (through the collapsed flooring). Those two terminals detail the same events that happened before and during the Great War.

Along the south wall of the lowest floor, there is a steamer trunk and stairwell leading back up to the upper floor. A wooden door on the west side of the upper floor leads out to a ruined office with a vantage point for MILA and a Novice locked floor safe next to the desk.

  • The article states that the deciding game of the 2077 World Series, in which the Red Sox have a three-game lead, will take place on October 23, 2077, and that it will take "some obscene calamity of man" to keep Boston from winning.
  • Article 4 in the Boston Bugle article terminal has a reference to Raven Rock from Fallout 3. It also contains a reference to the oil rig used as an Enclave base in Fallout 2 and is even named as "Control Station Enclave" in the article.


The Boston Bugle building only appears in Fallout 4.
