|關於the Pitt raider character，參見Pitt raider (character)。|
The ruins of Pittsburgh had been long dominated by raider gangs, ever since the immediate aftermath of the Great War. By 2103, the gangs had established a system by which raider "enforcers" oversaw conscripted or enslaved civilian workers, who helped construct the settlement that would come to be known as the Pitt.
After the Brotherhood of Steel led by Owyn Lyons purged most of the Pitt in the Scourge in 2255, the remaining inhabitants were united by Ishmael Ashur. As a former member of the Brotherhood of Steel, he had participated in the assault and had been left behind in the Mill, presumed dead after having been caught in an explosion.
Scavengers who were trying to steal his armor pulled him out of the rubble, and, due to his appearance, Ashur impressed the inhabitants of the area to a degree that some even considered him a god. Touched by the tenacious locals and realizing the potential of the operational steel mill, he founded the city by bringing together the scavengers in the area and recruiting them as a group of followers. When they were attacked by raiders soon after, Ashur killed some of the old raider leaders and made the rest follow him, founding the Pitt raiders as they are at the time of Fallout 3.
Eventually, the Pitt raiders had to turn to slavery to bolster the number of workers as the disease plaguing the town, the Troglodyte Degeneration Contagion, caused many to transform into insane wildmen or worse, trogs. This move turned them into the major purchaser for slaves from the Capital Wasteland and the largest customer of the Paradise Falls slaver community.
Raiders of the Pitt are significantly better equipped than the average raider gang. While their weapons are much the same as those found on raiders in the Capital Wasteland, they have no shortage of ammunition, due to their access to a functional ammo press. A few members of the gang also possess modified assault rifles, unseen in the Capital wasteland. Pitt raiders also utilize specialized armor that is ideal for protecting the wearer from the toxic air and fumes of the city.
