The Talon Company recon camp is an unmarked location in the Capital Wasteland in 2277, located southeast of Arlington Library.


The outpost has three outdoor floors. On the bottom floor, there are two shelves with numerous amounts of loot with a locked first aid kit (25 Lockpick). Next to the shelves is a workbench with a bottlecap mine sitting on top of it. Below the workbench is a locked safe (50 Lockpick). Next are three ammunition boxes. One of them is locked (50 Lockpick). They contain various amounts and types of ammo.

On the second floor, the first platform is just a desk that contains various types of loot. Walking back to the road and turning left and turning left again a little further down the road will lead to a walkway. This is the second floor's second platform. The room has a pool table with various loot. Behind the pillar when walking in is a locked (50 Lockpick) gun case. It contains various loot. On the top floor, walking all the way down will lead to three ammunition boxes that can be found. One of which is locked (50 Lockpick). They contain various ammo types and amounts.


The outpost is occupied by up to 10 Talon Company mercs and a potential sentry bot or robobrain. They possess various heavy weapons and small arms. One of the mercenaries patrols just south of the library, carrying a missile launcher. A sentry turret can be found on the second floor, alongside another merc manning a sniper's nest.

Notable loot


  • After the Enclave arrives in force into the region, approaching this camp may cause a Vertibird to do two bombing runs over the camp. Approaching the sewer located to the west of the outpost will cause another bombing.
  • With the addition of Broken Steel, a water barrel can be found near the outpost between two bombed outbuildings. When the Lone Wanderer approaches the barrel, a group of three Talon Company mercs attack.


The Talon Company recon camp appears only in Fallout 3.
