Helvetia is a town in the Forest region of Appalachia in 2102. It is currently inhabited by the Scorched.


Helvetia was settled by German and Swiss immigrants from Brooklyn, New York, in 1869. It was settled mostly by artisans and has historically been associated with its cheese making and food festival in which masks are worn.[1]


The town of Helvetia has had a fascination with making papier-mâché masks. Thirteen different masks can be acquired in-game, including a Fasnacht Man mask, an owl mask, jester mask and skull mask.


The town was once a tourist destination and features German/Swiss themed buildings to showcase the town's heritage. There is a church, store/post office, bookstore, museum, Cheese Haus, The Honey Haus, Freyja's Haus Restaurant and a few other unmarked buildings. All buildings in Helvetia can be explored. The town is filled with the Scorched.

The church has been converted into a Mothman shrine. The key to the post office is sitting on an interior desk and can be taken grabbed from a broken window.

The town has a good number of crafting stations:

  • Cooking station, in the Cheese Haus.
  • Chemistry station, just inside the entrance and on the top floor of the church.
  • Weapons workbench, upper floor of the church. A second one is in a small shack across from the vote counting station. A third one is behind a building south of the restaurant.
  • Water pump, beside the Cheese Haus.

Behind the scenesEdit

Helvetia is an actual town in southern Randolph County, West Virginia. Both the game and real-life versions are nearly identical. One notable difference is Freyja's Haus Restaurant, based on the real-life Hütte Restaurant in the same spot.


Xbox OneIcon xboxone An "immortal" level 1 Scorched can sometimes be found in the shop here. This scorched will, once you are detected, attack you without moving from the upper level, dealing unavoidable, invisible damage. The scorched will also be unkillable, regenerating health, and always retaining a minimum of one health. [verified]
