Perk wild wasteland.pngThe following is based on the Wild Wasteland trait.

The One is an undetonated C-23 Megaton nuclear bomb found slightly west-northwest of the Devil's Throat. It appears only by having the Wild Wasteland trait.


The bomb can be reached by going north-northeast from Ranger Station Bravo and is easily accessible if the player character fast travels directly to the Devil's Throat, then follows the canyon wall west. The bomb has a timer, which has been set to or is stuck at "9999."

Standing in close proximity to the bomb will result in between 1-3 rads per second of damage. Depending on the Courier's level, there will be up to four super mutant masters behind the bomb, next to a cave. There are also several glowing ones or feral ghoul roamers around the area. Without the trait, there is only a small blackened area of ground emitting a constant 1 rad per second.

  • Originally, mini nukes could be retrieved from the bomb, however, the script associated with this is disabled.

  • Icon pc.png Icon ps3.png Icon xbox360.png Even with the Wild Wasteland trait, The One may not appear. Instead, a large hole will appear in its place. A possible cause could be picking the Wild Wasteland trait after Old World Blues without having it prior. Enabling The One by console commands prid 16192a followed by enable can solve this problem.
