The South Mountain nuke crater is an unmarked location in the Savage Divide region of Appalachia.[1] It is located at the end of a small dirt road, which starts near the military checkpoint at the southern side of Huntersville.


This location, once a pre-War military outpost, consists of skeletal remains, a destroyed building, some crates, and the rusting remains of a vertibird that crashed after the bombs dropped.


The location consists of a large crater where a vertibird crashed on the area's northwest side. Near the crater itself is a small military camp with APCs and off-road vehicles parked around it. The site is highly radioactive and contains the ruins of what was once a large building, now completely obliterated. The vertibird is halfway sunken into the ground. Deathclaws or mega sloths may spawn in the vicinity of the location.

Notable loot


The South Mountain nuke crater appears only in Fallout 76.
