X-12 IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. ON AN UNRELATED NOTE, WHOEVER CLOSED X-12, PLEASE REPORT TO THE DOME.Doctor Klein

The X-12 research center is a location in Big MT in 2281. i is located directly southwest of the Think Tank.

Layout[edit | edit source]

An upgraded sonic emitter pistol is needed to get past the force field blocking the stairs going down. On the bottom floor below, the Y-17 master trauma harness is wandering around. After disposing of it, three more Y-17 trauma override harness entities will spawn at the front door.

Two deluxe chemistry sets can be found on the bottom floor. For each chemistry set, and with a Science skill of at least 25, these can be used to create five stimpaks or a set of five "drugs."

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

50 Vault-Tec C.E.O..pngThe following is based on unverified behind the scenes information and has not been confirmed by canon sources.
  • There is a buffalo gourd seed wedged between two machines that appear to be unsuccessfully attempting to crush it. This could be another reference to the film Buckaroo Banzai in which a watermelon is found in almost the exact same situation.

Perk wild wasteland.pngThe following is based on the Wild Wasteland trait and has not been confirmed by canon sources.
  • With the Wild Wasteland trait, the Y-17 master trauma harness and the three regular Y-17s that spawn upon his death will say and repeat "Hey, who turned out the lights?" This is a reference to the Doctor Who episode "Silence in the Library."
