Enclave officers are encountered leading squads of Enclave soldiers through the Capital Wasteland in the year 2277.


Enclave officers are often found commanding a group of Enclave soldiers at the many outposts established throughout the Capital Wasteland. They are highly skilled combatants, but their lack of proper armor leaves them very vulnerable to damage.

  • There is a single officer in Camp RHO south-west of the Robot repair center, the camp is surrounded by four automated turrets. The officer carries an Experimental Rho ID, which renders the turrets friendly to whoever holds it.
  • Enclave officers are the only ranged enemy units in Fallout 3 to also use grenades in combat. All other grenade-using enemies in the game specialize in melee combat.
  • The officers carry exactly the same radio as a generic vault security guard or doctor.
  • Enclave officers have fingers on their bodies when killed, so one can turn them in for bounty (only if with the Lawbringer perk).
  • Though West Coast Enclave officers wear armor, Judah Kreger wears the same uniform as the East Coast officers at the Second Battle of Hoover Dam.
  • If one looks closely at the emblem on the hat it has the Raven Rock Enclave symbol.
  • Enclave officers often carry keys to deathclaw cages. If they spot you their first reaction is usually to release the deathclaw.
  • After passing a Speech check, an Enclave officer will admit to wearing his uniform backward. He is met when the player character first gets captured by the Enclave in Raven Rock.[1]


Enclave officers appear in Fallout 3 and Fallout: Wasteland Warfare.

    Lieutenant Williams:"I, uhh... You are? I mean, you would? Just make sure he knows I was real strict with you, okay? And that I didn't have my uniform on backwards this time."
