Fallout 3 cut content refers to content cut from the game.


Most of it can still be found in the game files but is inaccessible within the game itself. The equipment can still be obtained by the use of console commands.

Cut quests

  • Infiltration
  • Escape! - In the game files, there's a stage in the game where you have to talk to Stanley and inquire about re-activating the reactor and turn the power to the vault back on, activating the door to the exit.
  • Last Rites - According to its numbering, it was supposed to take place after Take it Back!.
  • Wasteland Survival Guide - At some stage in development, the Wasteland Survival Guide contained another quest stage. The player's objective would have been to print the books at Hubris Comics and return them to Moira (who at this point was apparently still called "Lea") as part of the work on the last chapter. This makes Moira's remark in the final game that it's cynical of the player to assume she would require such a dangerous task of him/her doubly ironic. Judging by its editor ID, the mirelurk bait grenade was also intended to be part of this quest. It was most likely to be used for the mission at Anchorage Memorial.
  • MS07 - A quest involving Sarah Lyons that was completely cut from the game, with the exception of a strange disk.

This was probably intended as an alternate method for murdering Mabel Henderson at Betty's command. This version inflicts 300x as much damage, is much more valuable (3900 vs. 25 caps), and oddly weighs twice as much

Cut actor effects

Name Form ID Description Notes/more
Atomization 0005B141 This is an unused critical kill effect for weapons that fire mini-nukes, much like disintegration or gooification. The victim is engulfed in a sparkling bright lime green particle effect. The corpse is strangely rendered transparent afterwards with a mild radioactive glow, possibly due to a missing texture.

There are effects for unused second and third ranks for this perk.

  • On the Fallout 3 SPECIAL Edition vinyl, numerous errors can be found such as duplicate tracks, as well as tracks out of order. The track "Fortress" appears to be using an entirely different song with an unknown name, as it does not match the Fortress on the official soundtrack.[1]
