For the container in Fallout 4, see Metal box (Fallout 4).

A metal box is a container in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. Metal boxes are used for storage of various items. They also share their model with the uncommonly encountered "Box," though the "box" container is somewhat taller than the "metal box."


Metal boxes can be found virtually everywhere in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. Items found in metal boxes are mostly random junk. However, some items such as keys, ammunition, notes or quest-specific items will be found in the same metal box or container. They are known to respawn their contents, and thus may not be safe to store items.
