Detroit was a pre-War city.


Detroit is mentioned in Guns and Bullets #4: Street Guns of Detroit, a magazine found in the Commonwealth and Appalachia. The issue features handmade pipe weaponry and suggests the crude devices were known to be used in criminal acts on the city's streets before the Great War.

Detroit is also mentioned on the Eden Meadows Cinemas terminal entries as having manufactured Roborilla, a fictional American-made robot featured in an upcoming movie Manzilloid vs. Roborilla.[1]

In Appalachia, a man named Johnny Weston mentions to the player character that he may or may not be from Detroit and refuses to tell them his origins.[2] Solomon Hardy also hailed from the city, with a family going back generations.[3]


Detroit is mentioned in Fallout 4 and its add-on Far Harbor, as well as in the Fallout 76 updates Wastelanders and Steel Dawn.

  2. Vault Dweller: "Where are you from originally?"
    Johnny Weston: "I don't really talk about it. I'm from all over. I used to see a lot of military bases as a kid, until I struck out on my own. When the bombs dropped, I was living in New York. Or maybe, Boston. Or coulda been Detroit, or LA. Maybe even England. Sorry you don't get to know. No one does. I've got my reasons for keeping it that way, and I'm safer for it."

  3. Vault Dweller: "Where are you from?"
    Solomon Hardy: "My family goes back generations in Detroit, but my path has led me all over. I can thank the Army for that one. When the bombs hit, I was about a year from getting my M.D. at a university well away from home. I traveled all around after that. Before bumping into Paladin Rahmani's group, that is."
