Fallout 4 cut content refers to content in Fallout 4 which was cut from the final version of 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 use of console commands.

Armor and clothing

The add-ons to the BOS uniform.

  • BOS lab coat: Appears as an armor add-on fitting on the BOS uniform. Most likely replaced by the Science scribe's armor in the final build of the game.
  • Kells' coat: Appears as an armor add-on fitting on the BOS uniform, based on a reskinned version of Piper's red leather trench coat. In the final build of the game Lancer Captain Kells wears a unique variant of the Brotherhood fatigues.
  • Maxson's cape: Appears as an armor add-on fitting on the BOS uniform. In the final build of the game Elder Maxson wears a unique coat, the mesh of which includes the BOS officer uniform.

The three metal helmet variations.

  • Light, medium and heavy variations of the metal helmet consisting of wraparound goggles, goggles plus helmet and goggles, helmet plus scarf combinations. While the goggles and the helmet are still in the game (as separate objects), the scarf was cut entirely, though it may have been replaced in concept by the different bandanas.
  • Cait's bandolier (ID: 001921D8): Although this armor add-on will appear when equipped, it has no world model and should not be dropped.
  • Robotic bits, an eye-slot piece of clothing for Nick Valentine that gives +1 Perception. It seems he was supposed to start the game with this item, much like his trench coat and fedora.

Armor mods


The untextured Chinese assault rifle prototype.

The roughly textured "harpoon gun".

  • Harpoon gun: A roughly textured model similar to the Syringer and using parts of the assault rifle for the magazine, irons sights and bolt. Originally intended for underwater combat and likely related to the cut quest 20 Leagues Under the Sea. A different version of the weapon was included in the Far Harbor add-on.
  • Mortar, a cannon weapon similar to nuke that shoots mortar shells. Ammo is by the same name as the gun.
  • Pipe shotgun: An untextured shotgun receiver for the pipe weapons.
  • A diffuse and normal textures named Scimitar with no matching model can be found in the texture archives.
  • Far Harbor (add-on) Textures and sounds for the compound bow and corresponding arrows.
  • Far Harbor (add-on) A number of meshes for throwing Weapons, including: blade, harpoon, hatchet, saw, and bottle.
  • Nuka-World (add-on) Lucky Rabbit's Foot: A cut weapon in the Nuka-World add-on, it takes the space of a grenade, but adds 10% XP and 3 to Luck.
  • Nuke, a cannon weapon that shoots nuclear bombs (not mini nukes) and uses ammo by the same name.

Weapon mods

  • A recon scope mesh for the assault rifle that matches the style used on other weapons.
  • Short and long fluted barrels for the combat rifle, along with a small magazine and a drum magazine.
  • A large magazine for the combat shotgun, based on the mesh used for the combat rifle's large magazine.
  • A number of alternate sights for the combat rifle and combat shotgun.
  • An alternate version of the front part of the electronic trigger used on the Broadsider, along with multiple variants of explosive cannonballs.
  • A targeting computer for the Fat Man that would function similar to the one used for the missile launcher.
  • A muzzle mod for the gamma gun that would split the projectile into multiple ones, similar to the beam splitter mod for other weapons. (ID: 000B9A58)
  • A version of the markman's stock used for the hunting rifle, with the shoulder section of the stock removed. The model for this features the incorrect textures, along with no barrel, like the other meshes for the hunting rifle stocks have. Additionally, there's a loading screen showing the marksman's stock with a bipod, but the bipod isn't obtainable ingame.
  • A version of the reflex sight used on the 10mm pistol, with a hexagon shape as opposed to a dot or a circle. Additionally, there are textures for other reflex sight shapes, featuring the rounded corners of a square. There are also red versions of some of these shapes intended for use on the Gatling laser. The Institute pistol has meshes for the reflex sight with a circle shape as well, but the circle shape doesn't show up ingame.
  • A version of the extra flame jets mod for the Shishkebab that only adds two flame jets, as opposed to the four the non-cut mod provides.
  • An untextured version of a stun pack for the sledgehammer, similar to the one used for the super sledge.
  • The .44 pistol has first-person animations for automatic fire despite not being able to be made automatic normally. This will not function properly in third person.
  • An unnamed “Finned” barrel modification for the Plasma gun (Fallout 4) in The Art of Fallout 4. There is a mod that adds the barrel into the game but otherwise there is no other information than the picture.



  • .32 from Fallout 3 is mentioned in the projectile files. Although .32's VATS projectile is set to use the model of a .38 round, an unused .32 VATS projectile file does exist, with a string pointing to a non-existent Projectile32.nif. The magazines for the Deliverer also contain ammunition labelled 32Cartridge.
  • .357 from Fallout: New Vegas is also mentioned in the projectile files. The .45 round uses the .357 generic projectile, although the .357's VATS override projectile uses the physical model of a .45 round instead.
  • Textures exist for "Wildcat Ammo", it is not clear what it was meant to be used for. The textures appear as a brown paper wrapped box the same dimensions as a standard ammo box, with duct tape and the word AMMO written in black marker. These textures were later used in Fallout 76 for Syringer ammunition boxes.

Settlement objects


  • Mounted minigun. Can be spawned by console command but can't be crafted. Requires a settler to be assigned to it and then generates a Defense value of 10. Acts as a container with 100 5mm rounds. There are problems with the axes of the model making it difficult to place it such that it can fire.
  • Water cooler (xx001D3D). It uses the clean model of the base game's water cooler, but is an activator object that is meant to have the same functionality as the water fountain. However, it stops working after drinking from it once. The water container on top of the water cooler also has some visual issues when another object moves in front of it. Vault-Tec Workshop

  • Light Step - Unused animation and perk menu sound present in the game's files. Rank 3 of Sneak would perform this role.

Arms Master icon


  • 20 Leagues Under the Sea (MS03): Side quest, the Sole Survivor has to go to underwater exploration and likely was related to the cut harpoon gun. This would likely take place in an underwater vault as untextured assets can be found in the Creation Kit of both an underwater vault window (VltSquidWindow01) and an underwater vault door (VltLGDoorMarine01) can be found.
  • Off the Grid (MQ301): Main quest situated just before The Nuclear Option (MQ302). Diamond City lost its power supply.
  • That's the Spirit (MS12): Stub in the game data.
  • Bullet (MS18): Stub in the game data.
  • The Enemy of My Enemy (MQ201): Main quest after Reunions (MQ106) and before Dangerous Minds (MQ202). Not actually unused, but since the quest has no visible objectives it never appears.
  • The Replacement
  • MS08: Sounds, globals, debug msg, "Game Master 3000 Mk II" NPC (MS08Computer).
  • MS06 and MS15: Only a keyword.
  • DN011 OverdueBooks: Appears to have been a quest related to the Boston Public Library where Curator Givens' terminal references "compressing" recently collected book data to holodisk in the likely event of his death, although no further clues are given other than his body being found and his main terminal explaining the situation. Using noclip tcl and walking through the large computer and wall directly behind the Intelligence bobblehead reveals a secondary, hidden terminal. Accessing this terminal allows one to compress the book data and acquire a "BPL Compressed Data" holodisk which will then be added to the miscellaneous inventory. Experience is also rewarded for doing this as it completes DN011 OverdueBooks. It appears the overdue books one can collect and turn in at the kiosks and exchange tokens for items, might have had with collecting them to compress the data to the holodisk, and possibly passing the BPL Compressed Data to another NPC at a later date. There is also another (DN011) that has more stages and the "DN011 OverdueBooks" might have been a sub-quest to a larger quest.



  • Squid 0012EF26 (VltSquidWindow01) Actors\Squid\Squid_d.DDS
