Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Clear the Rubble In Front of the military Door in Mine Cave 1 was going to be a quest in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. It was located in the mining caves, northwest of Blackfoot Village.[1]


Shovels won't do it, but a well-placed charge of explosive can clear all of that rock. Another well-placed charge will let you into the military cache ... and release the robots set there to guard it, who now are tuned to your Prisoner status.

Character type completion breakdownEdit

  1. Science Boy - Can make the explosives.
  2. Stealth Boy - Is the master of setting traps, which is what these are.
