The Pitt is what remains of the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It will appear in the upcoming Fallout 76 update Expeditions: The Pitt.


Main article: The Pitt

A group consisting of Captain Oliver Fields, Sergeant Fred Radcliff and Sergeant Thompson of the U.S. Armed Forces unsuccessfully attempted to liberate civilians located in the city.[1] A number of locals led by Paige banded together and fled the city, mentioning its toxic water.[2][3] Those that survived founded the settlement of Foundation in the Savage Divide.[4]

A group known as the Expedition Squad Delta, made up of a vertibird pilot and soldiers Miller and Hernandez, arrived in the city. The expeditioners were attacked and killed by local creatures, leaving the pilot unaware of their whereabouts.[5] Prior to being employed by Dr. Blackburn in Appalachia, the Hellcat Company was hired to deal with the group of raiders in the Pitt known as the Fanatics.[6]

Behind the scenes

  • The entry sign to the Pitt resembles the real world Pennsylvania welcome sign.
  • Jeff Gardiner stated in a March 2009 interview that Pittsburgh was never hit directly by atomic bombs.[9] This was later contradicted in the Expeditions: The Pitt update for Fallout 76.[clarification needed]
