Crater house is a location in the Commonwealth.


The more lunatic of The Church of the Children of Atom have constructed a rickety shanty hamlet on top of an old, irradiated aircraft crash site.[1] A beacon was set at the Kingsport Lighthouse to guide cultists to this "holy site."[2]


This elevated shantytown is moderately irradiated, dosing one with about 6 rads per second. The six structures are set up on walkways above the crater, whose waters are highly irradiated, peaking at 38 rads per second. Most notably, the southeastern shack contains a cooking station, terminal and steamer trunk, and the north-northeast shack contains a chemistry station.

Notable loot

  • The Insect Repellent Special issue of the Wasteland Survival Guide is on the table of the lower level of a shack, beside a lantern.


Crater house appears only in Fallout 4.


  1. Fallout 4 Vault Dweller's Survival Guide Collector's Edition p.332: "[4.09] CRATER HOUSE
    The more lunatic of local cults has constructed a rickety shanty hamlet on top of an old, irradiated aircraft crash site. This seems to be some kind of gathering spot. Do not bathe in the water. Pick the safe (Expert) and access the terminal (Novice) to switch off the turrets and spotlights."
