The Cambridge crater is a location in Cambridge in 2287. It is located immediately west of Monsignor Plaza and directly north of Greenetech Genetics in the town formerly known as Cambridge.


Formerly a city block in Cambridge, the location was destroyed and turned into a radioactive crater. At some point in time, a group of ghouls attempted to settle into the crater for protection, but instead were turned feral from the excessive radiation levels.[1] Arlen Glass visits the crater routinely in honor of his family that used to live where the crater is now.[2]

If the Creation Club content "Quake Thunderbolt" is installed, visiting the Cambridge crater will result in a nuclear explosion that kills all the ghouls in the crater (if they have not already been cleared out previously). Entering the crater itself will spawn a trio of Champions for the player character to fight.

  1. Fallout 4 Vault Dweller's Survival Guide p. 417: "This area was previously a city block in Cambridge. Non–Feral Ghouls moved here hoping it would be a safe haven for them. Unfortunately they turned feral over time. Exercise caution, as the ground is steep and the crater is difficult to climb out of and is full of ferals. A single ammo trunk is located close to the center of the crater."
