This "old man" survived the war, endured the aftermath, and is still standing. And I didn't need no cozy vault to do it.

Munch is a raider at the Crater.


Munch lives in a tent in the northern part of the Crater. He describes himself as the resident historian,[1] though he freely admits he bends the truth about history.[2] Some of his writings on topics, such as the Great War, whales and the space station he resides in, can be found in his tent. He claims aliens are real and are what brought down the space station in the first place, and are probably working to dominate the planet.

Munch appears only in Fallout 76, introduced in the Wastelanders update.


  1. Vault Dweller: "Who are you?"
    Munch: "The name is Munch. Most people would probably say I'm just a crotchety old man with a shotgun, heh. But if you ask me, I'm what you'd call the resident historian, story teller, guru type around here."
    (Munch's dialogue)
  2. Vault Dweller: "So, you're lying to them?"
    Munch: "Pfft, semantics. That old world is long gone. There's just us to rebuild all this shit. Why waste time on tellin' 'em how things used to be? I intend to spice it up. Let these kids be amazed by possibility. Those are the minds I want rebuilding this world."
