Vehicles are devices that are designed or used to transport people or cargo from one point to another. Vehicles span a variety of categories, including cars, trucks, airplanes, and trains.


Before the war, vehicles used fuel sources such as steam, batteries, fusion, and petrol.[1][2] After the war, aircraft known as vertibirds were used by various post-War factions including the Enclave, New California Republic, and Brotherhood of Steel. An airship called the Prydwen was built and utilized by the Brotherhood as well, which served as a docking station for vertibirds. The NCR utilizes locomotives in the New Vegas area for transporting construction materials.[3]

A wide variety of wrecked vehicles can be found throughout the wastelands, and these vehicles are utilized for building materials and fortifications. A few functional automobiles exist around New California such as steam trucks and a car known as a Highwayman.[4] In Appalachia, in the immediate aftermath of the war, vehicles were still used by survivors, such as a raider gang based in the abandoned Bog Town that utilized trucks during their raids.[5] Members of the Free Radicals attempted to repair pre-War vehicles but only automated vehicles such as cargobots and vertibots are operational.[6]

  2. The Chosen One: "Do you have a battery that I could use to fix a car?"
    Skeeter: "Funny you should ask that. Ya see, cars use replaceable fuel cells, or batteries, for fuel. What usually broke down was the Fuel Cell Controller. Most amateur mechanics jist assume that it’s the battery itself. But you know what ass-uming things does, dontcha?"

  3. The Courier: "Where does the concrete come from?"
    Ike: "Most of the limestone comes from Quarry Junction out west. The supply had stopped for awhile because of a Deathclaw problem. I heard some badass wastelander killed the Deathclaws, and deliveries of limestone have been coming in again. I don't think they've gotten the trains up and running yet, but most of the concrete plant workers have come back to town now. Good for business."

  4. Ghoul refugee:"The super mutants attacked. We were slaughtered. They had guns and bombs, even some steam trucks. They killed my friends. The mutants just butchered us."
    Vault Dweller: "What's a steam truck?"
    Ghoul refugee: "Some big thing that moved on wheels but without any brahmin."
