The sniper shack, or abandoned shack in-game, is a building on a cliff to the west of Rockbreaker's Last Gas.


The sniper shack is a single room building, containing a locker, ammunition boxes, a fridge, a stove, metal boxes, and a bed. There is also a workbench and a cage containing the game's only named radroaches: Fluffy and Jitters. These are set to respawn if killed.

The outside of the shack is a spawning point for Talon Company or Regulators, depending on the player character's Karma level. Additionally, after the player completes The Waters of Life, a Vertibird may drop an Enclave soldier and a sentry bot to the northwest. Finally, Super mutants will sometimes spawn by the small pond near the shack.

Notable loot


The sniper shack appears only in Fallout 3.


  • PCPC Fluffy and Jitters can escape their cages without the player opening the cage door. [verified]
  • On the rocks below the sniper shack, there is a hole in them due to a mapping glitch.
