The Murkwater construction site is a location and settlement in the Commonwealth in 2287.[1]


The default state of the construction site is laid out by medium-sized section of swampland with two notable buildings. One of them is an unfinished wooden frame for a shack, where a workshop can be found next to a few basic articles of furniture. Leaning on the structure is a sunken excavator that cannot be scrapped through workshop mode. Within a few feet of this, there is another destroyed building with a couch inside. Around that, the site is littered with cattails, fallen trees, and water.

  • The construction site is home to a mirelurk queen that can respawn after not visiting the location for a certain period of time.
  • This is one of the smallest settlement sites in the game.
  • There is a set of five concrete structures with wires between them to the northwest of the site. Opening the door on the middle construct reveals some graffiti that reads "you look nice today" and spawns a leveled sentry bot.

    Despite the abundance of marshland south of Hyde Park, construction had begun on the outskirts of this area before the bombs dropped. Venture farther into the swamp to uncover some secondary locations. Currently, this area is teeming with wildlife of the irradiated and pincer-snapping kind. If made safe, this could be an excellent settlement location."
