There's supposed to be a vault somewhere out here... a place called Vault 95. I've heard that Vault-Tec used it for some kinda social experiment... stuck a bunch of junkies inside to poke and prod. Well, they supposedly had some special method to clean up those blokes in there... some kind of a machine or somethin'. If we could get inside, maybe that machine could help me.Cait during Benign Intervention

Vault 95 is a Vault-Tec vault located in the Commonwealth in 2287. It is located at the northeast edge of the Glowing Sea.


Vault-Tec created Vault 95 as a rehabilitation institute for people who suffered from chem addiction. The residents of the vault would continue with the program for five years, after which a planted Vault-Tec agent would then unearth a pre-placed, hidden supply of chems to test the social and psychological reactions of the community.

As reflected in the Vault 95 terminal entries, the rehabilitation program was effective in managing the addiction of its residents, with decisions to maintain the program remaining unanimous throughout the vault's early years. Private logs reveal that the introduction of chems effectively tore apart the family that the residents had created for each other, with some residents caving almost immediately to their urges. This stash may be found as one descends the stairs into the residential area, heading straight to the bathrooms and then looking right. Despite the fate of the vault, the stash still contains moderate quantities of chems and alcohol.

It is certain that all of the vault's original inhabitants overdosed, were killed during in-fighting or fled well before the Gunners moved in; multiple bodies may be found in and around the stash. In the bedroom slightly to the right of the stash are two bodies splayed out across the furniture. They are surrounded by what appears to be a civilized tea party, complete with mannequin attendees, Psycho, and Jet. In one of the closed stalls in the bathroom to the left of the stash is a skeleton and Psycho. Opposite the room where the Big guns bobblehead is contained, behind a Novice locked door, a skeleton may be found slumped against the foot of a bed, Psycho at his feet and two Jet on an upturned wastebasket next to him.

Judging from the otherwise homely and untouched nature of the rooms in that area, it seems probable the residents instantly capitulated to their addictions, shut themselves into their rooms, and resumed their chem abuse. It also appears the Vault-Tec agent did not survive the ensuing violence, and his body and upgraded 10mm pistol may be found close to his terminal.

The vault is currently a base of operations for the Gunners.


The entrance is heavily guarded by Gunners along with two assaultrons outside, and one assaultron and a Mister Gutsy inside. An elevator takes the one down to the vault itself. The vault proper has three separate sections: the south side with the cafeteria and detox chamber, the west side with the reactor down below and the overseer's office above, and the north side containing a heavily trapped tunnel that leads to the residential area.

Vault 95 was designed to house a maximum of 72 people as shown in a blueprint behind the overseer's desk showing the layout of the entire vault.

Notable lootEdit

  • Big guns bobblehead once down the elevator, turn right in the main room after the tin can chimes, go through the sliding door leading to the residential area. There will be a grenade trap as well as another sliding door. The bobblehead will be in the northern-most room on top of a radio.

Behind the scenesEdit

50 Vault-Tec C.E.O.The following is based on unverified behind the scenes information and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

In the overseer's terminal, a logged document regarding one of the support meetings where the question of the frequency of the group meetings is brought up, in addition to other spontaneous off-topic questions asked by several dwellers that can also be found. In the dialogue, a resident by the name of Randall makes several comments about fellow vault dwellers and about the detox program. Randall and many of the details regarding the nature of the support meeting can be seen as a reference to the book and movie One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, where "Randall" in the meeting notes can be seen as the character Randle McMurphy.
