Malden Center is a location in the Commonwealth in 2287.


Malden Center is an underground Boston MTA station in central Malden, north of Cambridge. By 2287, Malden Center is a raider camp led by Helter Skelter, and is under attack by synths at the time the Sole Survivor arrives.


Malden Center subway station is divided into two levels linked together via two elevators. The top level is inhabited by synths and dead raiders while the bottom level is inhabited by both groups fighting one another.

A weapons workbench and a cooking station are found on the bottom level, in the middle of the raider shacks.

If the Sole Survivor is allied with the Institute upon arriving, there will be no combat until reaching the room with Helter Skelter, as all the other raiders are dead and the synths will not be hostile.


Malden Center appears only in Fallout 4.
