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

Background

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

Layout

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.

Notable loot

A Vault-Tec lunchbox can be found in a blue box, seen upon exiting the elevator.
