Gametitle-VB.pngThe following is based on Van Buren and is not canon.

Mine For Guano was going to be a quest in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. It was located in Blackfoot Village.[1]


By commission of the Blackfoot, the player needs to harvest a certain amount of guano. You can use the bat guano to make (with carbon) gunpowder. Mining it is boring, but it provides raw materials. No archetype here as a particular advantage, except...

  1. DiploBoy - Can talk some locals into doing this work for him. Probably kids. Perhaps this is just controlled by the existence of "dropped" guano in the caves, that takes time to "mine" and this quest would just be about talking someone into doing it for you. The guano will respawn as long as there are bats living here.
