Hamilton's hideaway is a small cave in the side of a cliff face in the Capital Wasteland in 2277. It is mentioned by Evan King in Arefu as a possible location of The Family as part of the Blood Ties quest.

Background[edit | edit source]

Icon cut content.pngThe following is based on Fallout 3 cut content and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

This underground complex was originally a well-prepared shelter for a family of three - a husband, his wife Maggie, and their daughter Robin, established due to a mistrust of Vault-Tec. Fitted with air filtration, chemical toilets, an artesian well, and a fusion generator, it provided a long-stay option until radiation levels subsided.

Layout[edit | edit source]

Just north of Moonbeam outdoor cinema and southeast of northwest Seneca station, Hamilton's hideaway is a network of tunnels that sprout from one single tunnel. Multiple catwalks lead over rocks that lead into a hallway constructed of metal. The weapons cache for completing the unmarked quest, Caching in with Three Dog, is located in the northwest corner of the hideaway, through a hole in the left wall.

Inhabitants[edit | edit source]

The cave itself is populated with variants of radscorpions, radroaches, two or three raiders, and sometimes a giant radscorpion near the raider hideout. Outside the cave random enemies may spawn, mostly mole rats and mirelurks. Harder enemies may spawn at higher levels.

  • A room with three radroaches in it is located around the middle of the cache and the bandit lair. One may spawn in the wall and if one tries to shoot it, it falls out of the map and appears in the room, unstuck.
  • Some of these enemies will be dead when the player character finds them because radscorpions and raiders will fight each other.
  • Sometimes 1up to three dead wastelander bodies (that may have spawned alive) will appear.
  • At higher levels with Broken Steel installed, an albino radscorpion may be encountered.
  • When fast traveling here, on some occasions up to four yao guai will spawn.

Notable loot[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

In a cut terminal entry it is stated that Frank was disposed of in a furnace. The terminal itself was cut as well, making it unclear if the furnace can be found.
