A small town before the Great War, Bramwell was quickly overtaken by the construction of what would come to be known as "Mega Mansions," giant skyscraper-like mansions housing the richest in Appalachia. During the Automation riots, one of these mansions was brought down via stolen blasting explosives used by disgruntled ex-miners, headed by one "O'Conner," as Mick Flanagan led another group in an attempt to capture the Rockhound. While the vandals were arrested, there was still much unrest in the town. After the Great War, the Responders Fire Breathers division underwent a few expeditions in the area, discovering the Excavator power armor and planning to utilize it for future exploits.
- Bramwell was planned to appear in Fallout 76, and would have been another town and fully-fledged location, however, it was cut sometime before release. It would have been located in the Ash Heap around the Garrahan Estate and unfinished mansion.
- Mentions of Bramwell still exist via terminal entries and an unused sign texture that exists in the game files.
Bramwell is mentioned only in Fallout 76.
Behind the scenesEdit
Bramwell is based on the real world location of Bramwell, West Virginia. Mirroring in-game events, the real world town acquired some notoriety for having the largest number of millionaires per capita in the United States in the late 1800s. Numerous large homes were built in the town by wealthy coal operators, but were subsequently lost to a massive fire and martial law that destroyed the vast majority of downtown.
