Background[edit | edit source]
Radiation King Assembly Plant 12 was one of the finest assembly plants of the Radiation King corporation, at least in January 2076, when they reached a 98 percent peak efficiency rating, with almost 150 televisions built, packed and shipped. It was the first time in nearly two years that the factory did not experience any machine downtime, employee shop accidents or the typical radiation burn treatments (except for a single chemical spill in the break room).
The efficiency caught the eye of the military and an inspection team was sent on May 20 to assess the ease with which the facility could be converted for military use. After it passed, the Army Corps of Engineers moved to convert the facility in July, under Col. Myron Pollard. The staff was conscripted, the foreman designated the employee liaison, and munitions manufacturing began. By November, the factory was manufacturing ammunition apace and even the foreman did not mind being put on the assembly line. A platoon of armored infantry supported by heavy tanks was assigned to the facility's defense, together with automated gun emplacements.
The foreman's one moment of doubt came in January when he noticed that most of the ammunition crates they were filling were sitting in storage, rather than being shipped to the Alaskan or Chinese fronts. Col. Pollard brushed it off as stockpiling. The foreman at first thought it was pointless, but then realized that this was a way to maintain morale and the economy in the face of nuclear annihilation.
Layout[edit | edit source]
This former Radiation King assembly plant is located in a secluded corner of the Savage Divide. Outside, there's a small Vertibot landing pad next to a parking area that spawns a level 50 vertibot to defend the factory alongside the three heavy gun emplacements. The factory floor can be accessed by entrances on the northern and southern sides of the building. The factory is a workshop settlement and offers food (7), water (8), as well as junk, ammo, silver, lead, aluminum, and oil resource nodes (1 each).
The factory itself has three floors, surrounding the main assembly hall. The factory offices and the reactor room are located on the southern and northern end of the ground floor respectively. The foreman's office is in the southern corner on the second floor, while the storage and break rooms are up on the top floor.
Outside of the plant, there is a gated parking area filled with army vehicles. To the west is a Vertibot landing pad with a crate of Vertibot signal grenades. There are oil, silver, lead, aluminum and junk deposits here, though the most notable resource is the ammunition plant inside on the first floor. If it is powered up, the plant can produce a wide variety of ballistic and energy ammunition types by selecting the desired ammo on an adjacent terminal. Also on the first level, on the eastern side, is a generator room that has an armor workbench and a fusion core. The second floor holds the supervisor's office, as well as a mostly empty break room to the east. Next to that is another room where the assembly line begins.
The factory has a sprawling connection of catwalks, and if one walks along the section heading north and ascending to the third level, they will reach a small storage room with various explosives and a weapons workbench. On the other end of the building is another office that is locked by a terminal. Above that office is a platform with various containers and a sledgehammer on top of a desk. On the factory's roof, there is a small building that can be accessed with a console and file cabinets inside. Littered throughout the roof are holes that can be jumped into to re-enter the factory.
Notable loot[edit | edit source]
- Horace's note - Note, on a desk in the area across from the break room.
- Floyd's note - Note, on a coffee table by the window in the office locked behind a terminal.
- Power armor chassis with T-series armor pieces - On the third floor.
- Fusion core - In the generator room.
- Ten Vertibot signal grenades - In a crate beside the landing pad, only available if the vertibot is active and hasn't been destroyed.
Notes[edit | edit source]
The munitions factory can be powered from Monongah power plant if the Powering Up Monongah quest has been completed, though it is tricky to locate the plant's power box in order to connect power from there to the ammunition plant.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
The converted munitions factory appears only in Fallout 76.
