The yao guai cave is a location in the Capital Wasteland in 2277.

The yao guai cave is a small cave that can be reached by going through the Cliffside cavern's raiders outpost. At the end of the cave, the player can find the Nuka-grenade schematics.

Notable loot


  • The cave has six yao guai, with a seventh wounded one just outside its entrance (in Cliffside cavern). More may appear on higher difficulties.
  • The yao guai cave is not to be confused with the yao guai den or the yao guai tunnels. The cave is not connected to the den or the tunnels in any way.
  • There are three frag mines placed at the entrance of the cave.
