- Buoy bell sound

Buoys in the Fallout 3 add-on Point Lookout mark the location of hidden containers in the waters of Point Lookout. Buoys are easily located in the fog due to their bells. The actual caches are found underwater, directly below the buoys. While searching, keep an eye on the oxygen gauge or keep stimpaks at the ready.


The buoys are numbered consecutively, going clockwise around the map, starting in the northeast corner.
