Founded among the ruins of Gad, an extinct village flooded when the Summersville Lake was created after damming the Gauley River, the New Gad was established by raiders after the dam was blown up during the Christmas Flood of 2082. The flood wiped out Charleston, but allowed the raiders to create a shantytown among the muddy ruins, building on the remnants of the village with their unique architectural style.
New Gad is a shantytown at the bottom of the empty Summersville Lake, oriented between an overturned ship in the northeast and a tugboat that settled upright on the lake bottom in the south, against a small hill. Between is a mostly-wooden, multi-story maze of a shantytown. Points of interest include the large shack in the center, with an armor workbench and a steamer trunk inside, just east of the green tug boat (which contains a locked safe), a chemistry workbench directly south of the steamer trunk shack, and a cooking station near the improvised hospital in the east.
New Gad appears only in Fallout 76.
- ↑ Name of the town and its location are a reference to the historic village of Gad, now at the bottom of the reservoir.
