Vault 63 is a Vault-Tec Vault located in the Ash Heap region of Appalachia.


As with the other Vaults, Vault 63 was sealed sometime around the Great War in 2077. The Vault remains sealed years later.


The Vault entrance is located inside a small cave, the entrance of which is concealed by a one-room shack. Inside the shack are several junk items. The door across from the entrance opens onto a small balcony with additional junk items, while the door to the left of the entrance leads into the cave. Outside the Vault door is a functioning terminal that divulges about the Vault's status, saying the vault door is "sealed," and the status of the Vault itself is "normal."

A keycard slot next to the terminal accepts the "Vault 63 access ID card." There's also the "Vault 63 resident ID card" and "Vault 63 maintainence ID cardIn-game spelling." Vault 63 also contains a maintenance terminal, a reactor control terminal, a security office terminal, a "security mission terminal," an "engineering certification terminal," a "fireman certification terminal" and a "military certification terminal."

The engineering, fireman, and military certification terminals all contain an option to locate a fireman, engineer, or officer respectively. Vault 63's reactor control terminal has an option to cool down the reactor of the Vault, taking three minutes to complete. The security office terminal has no text or menu items, and the maintenance terminal gives the player character an option to activate the fire suppression system of Vault 63. To the left of the metal bridge, there is an emergency management terminal containing most information about the Vault.

Notable loot

There are two ID cards inside the Vault, though they cannot currently be reached:

When the player resumed playing, their character would be spawned directly outside Vault 63.[patched]
