Icon cut content.pngThe following is based on Fallout cut content.

Fallout cut content refers to content in Fallout which was cut from the final version of the game. A few of it can still be found in the game files but is inaccessible within the game itself.

Cut character interaction[edit | edit source]

Cut factions[edit | edit source]

Cut quests[edit | edit source]

Additional unnamed cut quests include:

  • A Brotherhood mini-quest to deliver Pulse Grenades from Michael to Sophia. Also more extended dialogue with Michael, and being able to con a Laser Pistol out of him.
  • A Brotherhood spy quest.
  • A quest to deliver (perhaps unwittingly) a bomb to a Follower named Jake (you can ask Nicole about him).
  • A mini-quest involving Billy and Dan in the Hub, which has been fully scripted but seemingly does not work.

Cut creatures[edit | edit source]

Cut characters[edit | edit source]

Shady Sands[edit | edit source]

Junktown[edit | edit source]

The Hub[edit | edit source]

  • Avery
  • Richie, one could pose as a Hub vault inspector when confronting him.
  • Rufus, playing "Cyberhood, Prince of the Matrix."
  • Hubbian
  • Troy

Boneyard[edit | edit source]

The following are post mutant invasion:

Followers of the Apocalypse[edit | edit source]

Blades[edit | edit source]

The following are mentioned in Dolgan, Dragon, Snake, Beca and Jade's dialogue files.

Cathedral[edit | edit source]

Most cathedral NPCs give you only a small part of their dialogue. A good example is Viola, who has many lines that cannot be accessed. So it's hard to tell if actually any NPCs were completely removed.

Cut psykers:

  • Dominic - "A strange energy flares from his eyes."
  • Wiggup - "Small sparks of energy flow over his body," likely Wiggum.

Super mutants[edit | edit source]

It is unknown if the super mutants were slated for the Mariposa Military Base or the Master's Lair.

  • Uthern, leader of the super mutants.
  • Rae, might join in the fight against the Master.

The Thinker Nightkins[edit | edit source]

Random encounters[edit | edit source]

There are some MSG files for a type of random encounter that was never fully implemented: people from a nearby location who had significant amounts of dialogue, depending on one's rep there, could give news or lead to their base.

Other locations[edit | edit source]

Cut locations[edit | edit source]

Cut location content[edit | edit source]

Boneyard[edit | edit source]

  • A gang war in the Boneyard, with the Blades as a regular gang instead of a bunch of wimps and Tangler as a big bad boss of the Rippers (you can hear about them in some tell-me-abouts). Related quests to join the Blades, stop the gangs from attacking Adytum, and rescue Zimmerman's son (Jason, not Josh) from the Rippers.

Glow[edit | edit source]

Behind one of the broken goo-filled suspension tanks was a body of a big-headed alien. Near that was a desk with a note on it. The note had about every third letter taken out, but if you puzzled out what it said, you could figure out that it was an evacuation notice, signed by Dana Scully.Fallout Bible 9

The body has this description "This body might be some kind of genetic experiment."


  • GLOWCAGE.MSG - "It appears as though this cage contained lab animals for testing. Somehow, the bars have been torn off."
  • GLWBOX.MSG - "This looks to be the footlocker of some guards."
  • GLOWDESK.MSG - a locked desk of papers
  • GLOWTABL.MSG - a table in a mess

Vault 15[edit | edit source]

  • Finding a key in Vault 15 meant for... who knows what.

Other location[edit | edit source]

  • Finding the remains of an ambushed caravan along with the corpse of a Vault 13 scout named Sean, who turned super mutant.
