The Diehards were a gang of raiders located in Appalachia.


The Diehards were unique among most raider gangs in that they were averse to killing innocents, believing there were other ways of getting what they wanted. This led to the other raiders labeling them as weak and pacifists. However, many survivors refused to hand their supplies over to the gang, leading them to kill innocents. This caused the gang's leader, Margie McClintock, to go into a depressive state, deciding to take her own life in a chem overdose and hoping another member of the gang, Vincent Fried, would be a more successful leader. At some point prior to 2102, the Diehards were wiped out, with super mutants taking over much of their former territory.

However, by 2103, with the return of raiders to Appalachia, some continued to refer to other raiders as Diehards.[2][3][4]

Interactions with the player character



The Diehards are mentioned only in Fallout 76.


  1. Vault Dweller: "Dragged back? Were you here before with Meg?"
    Wren (raider): "Pretty much born and raised a Diehard 'til we bailed on Margie. And a damn good thing we did, too. If them Scorched wiped out the Responders and the Brotherhood, you bet your ass they'd be pickin' us off like flies. Unlike you vault dwellers and the Free States, we didn't have any cozy little bunkers to hole up in. But now that you're out... Welcome to the world of survival, rook."
  2. Raider punk: "Crater expelled this Raider scumbag for hurting other Diehards. That's not how we do things. Apparently they took up residence at this place."
  3. Raider punk: "You need to take out this Blood Eagle before even more Diehards get sucked into that garbage. Pretty simple. Make it stop."
  4. Fallout 76 Wastelanders loading screens: "When the Diehards Raider gang returned to Appalachia, they settled in the area of the crashed space station and named their new home the Crater."
