From what I've been told it's probably safer if I don't say anything. I don't want to put you in any more danger.— H2-22 to the Sole Survivor

H2-22 is a synth living in the Commonwealth in 2287.


H2 is an escaped synth who was quickly taken into Old Man Stockton's care.[1] The Sole Survivor will help him find a new life through quests with the Railroad.

A holotape in the Memory Den during the quest Memory Interrupted reveals that H2-22 decided to wipe his memory to start a new life.[2] After the quest is complete, Desdemona will inform the player character that H2-22 has safely escaped the Commonwealth.[3]

Even though Nick Valentine claims that all synths who escape the Institute lose their memories of it, due to a manufactured failsafe, H2-22 can recall many details of his life there. It is later revealed by DiMA that Nick had new memories uploaded to him just before the two of them escaped, which coupled with the early synth's limited memory capacity caused Nick to not remember the Institute.


H2-22 appears only in Fallout 4.


  1. The Sole Survivor: "Just tell me what you mean."
    Old Man Stockton: "This... synth... is fresh from the Institute. He's disoriented, he's never seen anything like our world. I can't hide him here forever. I've tried to deliver him at the rendezvous location, but raiders have made that impossible. So if you could...?"
    (Old Man Stockton's dialogue)
  2. H2-22: "The doctor said I could say goodbye. I've decided... to have the operation. I know I'll lose all my memories. I don't want you to be sad. I... I have nightmares. And this world, the SRB, being hunted. I just can't handle it. Everyone says I'll be safer if I start a new life. I know I'll be happier. My only regret is I'll forget... Old Man Stockton. High Rise. And you. Looking back, there's only fear. Worse than fear. But I will miss my new... friends."
    (H2-22's holotape)
  3. Desdemona: "H2-22 made it out of the Commonwealth. It's a tradition to down a glass for your first successful run. Well done."
    (Desdemona's dialogue)
