Background[edit | edit source]
Before the Great War, Hub City Auto was an automobile junkyard that received several citations for improper storage and disposal of radioactive waste. By 2287, the remains of the junkyard and the adjacent elevated freeway have been turned into a Gunners outpost.
Layout[edit | edit source]
Hub City Auto Wreckers is a small fortified area controlled by the Gunners. In the back, there is a crane that can be lowered to access the upper overpass via a terminal in the central elevated shack. There is a power armor station in the shed next to the crane, although the entrance is booby-trapped. There are two beds in the central shack and there is a sleeping bag in the bus on the northeastern side of the makeshift fortification.
On the southern end of the highway, there is a shack with a weapons workbench and a mattress. On the northern end of the broken highway, Captain Bridget guards a shed containing a terminal, a bed, and a trunk.
Notable loot[edit | edit source]
- Fat Man, on Captain Bridget, a named Gunner on the northern side of the broken highway.
- Power armor, on an unnamed Gunner commander that replaces Bridget if she is dead.
- Missile launcher, in the train coach south of the map. There are two doors to gain access, one of which has a trap.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- The Gunners are hostile to anyone who isn't a part of their group. This includes caravans that occasionally pass by, resulting in a firefight. Entering the yard usually triggers such an exchange.
- Captain Bridget can be found at one end of the nearby overpass (accessible by lowering the gangplank via a terminal). She is armed with a Fat Man launcher. With the exception of her right arm, she uses a full set of heavy combat armor, no matter what level the player character is.
- The Gunners may occasionally use the brahmin near Finch farm as target practice.
- There is an unnamed terminal on the overpass that marks Dunwich Borers, Revere Beach station, and Longneck Lukowski's Cannery on the map.
- A wrecked car forming a ramp to the car wall, from a low roof to the north side, allows the player character to bypass the heavily guarded entrances.
- Hub City Auto Wreckers can also be a place to rescue a kidnapped settler, even if the NPC mentioned "raiders."
Companion comments[edit | edit source]
- When at this location, companions make comments, which are activated while on the crane.

|Deacon||"That crane is awfully high. We're not going up there are we? Of course we are, because we're insane."|
