In this add-on, the player journeys to the industrial raider town of post-War Pittsburgh, appropriately called The Pitt. In contrast to Operation: Anchorage, The Pitt involves a more traditional quest line with several morally-ambiguous choices.
Although Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, was not hit directly by atomic bombs during the Great War, the water from the nearby Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio rivers soon became highly irradiated. The confluence of these three rivers yielded disastrous results and changed the area's inhabitants in mysterious ways over the following decades.
Some 20 years before the Lone Wanderer embarks to The Pitt, Owyn Lyons led the Brotherhood of Steel's expedition to Washington D.C. through The Pitt. In one night, the Brotherhood swept through and destroyed the original raider force occupying the town and rid the surrounding area of other "scum", killing anything that put up a fight. This event is chronicled as "the Scourge". As they cut through the raiders, the Brotherhood also saved several young children, and indoctrinated them into the Brotherhood.
The main objective the Lone Wanderer is given revolves around taking on the role of a slave in order to investigate rumors that the raider boss of The Pitt has discovered a cure for the mutations plaguing the town. These rumors are told to them by an escaped slave named Wernher who believes the cure needs to be in the hands of the slaves and not their raider overlords.
After gathering steel ingots in the derelict steel yard and fighting through a gladiator arena dubbed "The Hole", the Lone Wanderer is given an audience with Ashur, Lord of The Pitt. Being so close, stealing the cure will be easy, although the cure is not quite what the Lone Wanderer expected.
