Hugo's Hole is a location in the Commonwealth in 2287.[1]


Hugo's Hole is a small area that is comprised of large marble blocks forming a hallway and living quarters. The entranceway is heavily booby trapped and irradiated (up to 127 rads/s) with a machinegun turret at the end.

Past the booby traps is a very small room containing Hugo himself, who has recently died by way of a 10mm pistol.[2] There is also an Expert locked trunk and a chemistry station.

Notable loot


One can hear a gunshot as they are approaching the area.


Hugo's Hole appears only in Fallout 4.


PCPC A gunshot can be heard again if one returns after letting some time pass. This is likely due to the cell resetting.[verified]

    Between the thick cubes of marble on the northeast side of Dunwich Borers is the well-defended hidey-hole of Hugo, a local explorer. Listen to his Holotape for clues regarding the horrors at the adjacent quarry. Unlock his trunk (Expert) if you’re the pilfering sort. There’s a hazmat suit here, too, if you need to swim down an ancient irradiated well for some reason. Did you also check Hugo’s sleeping area for a metal shelf with a robot model kit on it? Have you found them all yet?"
