Vault 120 is a Vault-Tec vault located underwater in the Commonwealth. It would have been involved in the cut quest 20 Leagues Under the Sea.


The vault was to be placed underwater, based on untextured assets that can be found in xEdit of both an underwater vault window (VltSquidWindow01) and an underwater vault door (VltLGDoorMarine01). Cell names were copied over to the game files of Fallout 76, which reveal that the vault would have had an airlock,[1] a research station,[2] and that one level would have been named "Stellwagen Gorge."[3]


  • The cells related to Vault 120 do not exist in the game files of Fallout 4.
  • Vault 120 is also the name of a vault and quest location in Fallout Shelter.

Behind the scenes

  • Todd Howard discussed Vault 120 and the 20 Leagues Under the Sea quest in a Reddit AMA on November 10, 2021. He stated that it was to be a "Bioshock style vault," with a giant sentient octopus outside.[4]
  • "Stellwagen Gorge" shares its name with that of the real-world Stellwagen Bank, an oceanic plateau in the Massachusetts Bay.
