Skeletons are the remains of deceased people and creatures.

Background[edit | edit source]

The bones of creatures and human beings found in various places across the former United States.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Fallout and Fallout 2

In Fallout and Fallout 2, some skeletons can be looted. During the game over screens, the Vault Dweller and Chosen One's skeletons are seen lying dead in the wasteland.

Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas

In Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, the player character can pick up this object, but not loot it. One may also find skeletons near weapons, ammunition, notes and medical supplies. They may even correlate with unmarked quests. Skeletons can also stretch out, they will sometimes fling when interacted with, for more information see Fallout 3 bugs. Some skeletons are smaller than the normal variant.

In Point Lookout, the submerged skeleton of a T-Rex can be found underwater, south-southeast of the coastal grotto, under a buoy accompanied by a human skeleton with a lever-action rifle. The Museum of History contains another T-Rex skeleton.

In Dead Money, the skeletons of Vera Keyes and Frederick Sinclair can be found in the executive suites and the Sierra Madre vault, respectively. Vera's skeleton can be dismembered and wears a unique outfit that can be retrieved. Sinclair's skeleton (called "The Founder's Remains" in-game) acts as a container, although it contains nothing. In Honest Hearts, the skeleton of Randall Clark, a.k.a. the Survivalist, can be found atop the Red Gate.

In Old World Blues, Y-17 trauma override harnesses, automated suits that house long deceased test subjects, can be found all over Big MT. Additionally, the skeleton of Dr. Calis can be found clothed in scientist scrubs, and one can search this skeleton. One can also see that no spinal cord connects with the rest of the body; this is because his body is coded as human, and is wearing a "skull hat."

Fallout 4

Skeletons can be found all across the Commonwealth, ranging from the remains of U.S. Army soldiers to citizens, and even vault dwellers. They can be moved both physically and with a mouse/controller, but cannot be searched. There is a large skeleton of a marine animal on the collapsed second floor of the oceanarium in Far Harbor.

Fallout 76

In Fallout 76, various skeletons can be found across Appalachia. These skeletons generally cannot be interacted with or searched. Skeletons may only be moved by nearby explosions via ragdoll physics, or by walking into them. The large bones of a creature have been unearthed near the blade of the Rockhound in the Ash Heap. Another large skeleton is location inside the Hopewell cave.
