Hub City Auto Wreckers is a location in the Commonwealth in 2287.


Before the Great War, Hub City Auto was an automobile junkyard that received several citations for improper storage and disposal of radioactive waste.[1] By 2287, the remains of the junkyard and the adjacent elevated freeway have been turned into a Gunners outpost.


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

  • Fat Man - on Captain Bridget, a named Gunner on the northern side of the broken highway.
  • Power armor - on an unnamed Gunner commander, who 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.

Related quests


  • 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, regardless of the player character's level.
  • The Gunners may occasionally use the brahmin near Finch farm as target practice. This can sometimes cause both the settlers at Finch farm and the Forged at Saugus Ironworks to investigate the noise, resulting in the three parties fighting each other.
  • 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 on the north side allows the player character to bypass the heavily guarded entrances.
  • Hub City Auto Wreckers can also serve as a location to rescue a kidnapped settler, even if the quest giver mentioned "raiders."

Companion comments

  • When at this location, companions make comments, which are activated while on the crane.

Codsworth "Feel like taking the high road? It appears that crane can get us there."
Curie "Human adaptability is quite marvelous. Using a crane as a road..."
Danse "Impressive. I wonder if the Gunners made this themselves or murdered the original builders."
Deacon "That crane is awfully high. We're not going up there are we? Of course we are, because we're insane."
John Hancock "Gotta hand it to 'em. This is damn clever."
Nick Valentine "Going up."
Piper Wright "Where'd the Gunners get the brains to build something like this?"
Preston Garvey "Looks like we could get up on the highway from here."
Robert MacCready "Now how did a gang as stupid as the Gunners figure out something so clever?"
