The Ohio River is an unmarked location, a river running between former U.S. states of Ohio and West Virginia.[1]


The Ohio River is formed north of the Appalachian region, flowing south and serving as the border between the former states of Ohio and West Virginia. The river is mentioned on a plaque in front of the Silver Bridge, detailing the bridge's collapse and aftermath. Before the Great War, the bridge crossed the river here, serving as a connection between the towns of Gallipolis and Point Pleasant.


The Ohio River appears in Fallout 76.

Behind the scenes

The Ohio River is based on the real world river of the same name, which flows between the real world towns of Gallipolis, Ohio and Point Pleasant, West Virginia. The collapse of the Silver Bridge and the details described are likewise based on the actual collapse of the Silver Bridge on December 15, 1967.
