Enclave outposts locations

Once the Enclave have made their first appearance in The Waters of Life quest, checkpoints, camps and outposts will be established at various locations throughout the Capital Wasteland. These outposts are usually manned by an Enclave officer, accompanied by several Enclave soldiers and other forces ranging from sentry bots to defense turrets and mind controlled deathclaws.

Approximately 30 outposts are found scattered throughout the Capital Wasteland, and they are commonly found on the remnants of the pre-War roading system giving them the appearance of a checkpoint patrol network.

A smaller sub-section of the sites are used by the Enclave for conducting research or for testing technology. Such sites can be identified by locating an Enclave Field Research terminals, which can be accessed to determine the nature of the research being carried out.

Many of the sites are used for exterminating wastelanders, with an Enclave soldier using a flamer or heavy incinerator to carry out the task.

An outpost near Old Olney is the site where the player can carry out the optional component of the Shock Value quest; to take control of an Enclave-controlled deathclaw.

There should also be two dead, empty Enclave soldiers. There is a bug, as the soldiers may spawn floating dead in the air. To loot them, shoot the bodies and they will fall back to the ground.

Scripted Events[edit | edit source]

Scripted Events are Enclave appearances that involve some kind of dynamic event. These events usually involve a Vertibird.

Location Event Image
Alexandria Arms After approaching Alexandria Arms from Arlington Library, a VB-02 Vertibird will land and drop off a contingent of Enclave soldiers (3-6) all in Tesla armor. They will commence attacking any raiders around the building. Even if they are killed off, a Vertibird will come to pick them up a few hours later, or once the player exits Alexandria Arms. They are dropped in the middle of three or four cars.
Arlington Library Following an alleyway on the right side of this building, there's a scripted event where one Vertibird will drop two mini nukes on a group of Talon Company mercs upon entering the camp, then another will bomb the place coming from the opposite direction after exiting the camp towards the water then re-entering it.
Broadcast Tower KT8 Approaching from the north, through a ravine, 2 Vertibirds fly overhead with missiles following them. At least one of the missiles lands, destroying one of the Vertibirds, whose wreckage lands in the ravine in front/on top of you. Super mutants hold the high ground, equipped with missile launchers and small arms.
Hill north of Canterbury Commons After approaching the house near the water tower, a Vertibird lands and drops off 1 Enclave soldier in Tesla armor and 1 Enclave soldier in Enclave power armor. There may also be 3 Talon Company mercs that they engage.
Capitol Building Coming from the west may cause a Vertibird to land and disgorge troops.
Chryslus building From the fast travel point head directly south past the ruined building. Head east along the road (beware of a super mutant master/overlord, depending on player level) battling a Talon Merc and a sentry bot next to a truck. Head west under the bridge (this is where the shelter is located). As soon as you passed under the bridge, a Vertibird drops a sentry bot and two Enclave soldiers, presumably with plasma rifles in normal Enclave power armor. However, this author had Broken Steel installed and found Enclave Hellfire armor equipped soldiers, one with plasma rifle, one with a heavy incinerator.
L'Enfant Plaza A Vertibird drops 3 Enclave soldiers in Tesla armor with plasma rifles just north of Madame Jealle's. They proceed to fight the super mutants there unless they spot you. Fo3 L'Enfant Enclave Raid.png
Rockbreaker's Last Gas To the west of Rockbreaker's Last Gas is a hill with an abandoned shack. This shack contains the Victory rifle in a Very Hard safe, the Keller Family Transcript part 4 of 5, two unusually small pet radroaches named Fluffy and Jitters and some ammunition. Upon exiting the shack, a Vertibird flies over, lands on a lower hill to the northwest, and disgorges a sentry bot and an Enclave soldier in Tesla armor.
Rockopolis Head straight to Rockopolis from Smith Casey's Garage then walk between the cliffs heading towards Girdershade from Rockopolis. Two fly over head going east one at a time.
SatCom Array NW-07c On the very top of the unlocked SatCom tower, there is a scripted scene in which at least one Vertibird will fly over the player towards the Enclave base.
Seward Square northwest A large fight between a half dozen Talon Company mercs with Mister Gutsies and a few super mutants is suddenly interrupted as a Vertibird flies over the Capitol building and carpet bombs all participants with mini nukes. Any survivors will continue the scuffle unperturbed.
Seward Square southeast As you approach the Metro station at Seward Square Southeast, a Vertibird will land and drop off a sentry bot and Enclave soldier wearing Enclave Hellfire armor.
Seward Square A Vertibird will fly over if you approach the Metro entrance Fo3 Seward Square VB Flyover.png
The Silver Lining Drive-In Looking southeast a Vertibird apppeared on the horizon landed just across a gully, and disgorged an Enclave soldier in Tesla armor and a sentry bot. Fo3 Silver Lining Drive In Vertibird Sortie.png
Temple of the Union (on the highway to the northwest) As you travel on the road that runs under the highway, a Vertibird lands on the highway above and disgorges 4 troops. There were 2 Enclave soldiers and 2 sentry bots. If you take your time moving up the off-ramp, the Enclave troops will combat the raiders. Distracted, they are easier to take out. It appears that, if you wait long enough, the sentry bots disappear or run off the edge of the highway, destroying themselves on impact. It also seems possible to trigger at least a second Vertibird landing, though no additional troops appear to be released. It is possible this is meant to be an Enclave raid and that the second landing is intended to pick up the Enclave forces that remain from the first landing.
Vault 87 Vertibird will drop off 3 Enclave soldiers all in Enclave power armor armed with laser rifles. They will proceed toward the player along the very outskirts of the radiated area. This can be setup using the nearby super mutant spawn.
VAPL-84 power station Looking northeast, just beyond the collapsed highway, a Vertibird dropped off 2 Enclave soldiers, one in standard Enclave power armor and another in Tesla armor. They proceeded to head down an incline and set an ambush behind a pillar of the collapsed highway.
Vault 108 Vertibird drops of 2 Enclave soldiers just south of Vault 108
Vault 101 Just north of Vault 101. Look for parked Vertibird. Fo3 Enclave Stop Nor of 101.png

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • All Enclave checkpoints will be repopulated after 72 hours. This is not true of scripted Vertibird drop-offs.
  • Random Wasteland encounters (i.e. yao guai or robots) respawn 72 hours after being killed at the exact location of their corpse. It's therefore possible to lure enemies into an Enclave camp, then kill them there. When you come back 72 hours later, both the Enclave soldiers and the monsters will be alive again and fighting each other. The same is true of respawning raiders and Talon Company mercs, whose corpses can be dragged into Enclave camps (or vice versa). A good example of this is at the Deathclaw Sanctuary where the outpost is almost always under attack from the deathclaws living there.
  • With Broken Steel, certain Enclave troops previously equipped with Enclave power armor will be equipped with Enclave Hellfire armor, and certain troops with flamers will be replaced with Enclave Hellfire troopers using heavy incinerators.
  • A very useful bug occurs when a player waits at any Enclave checkpoint. Waiting causes 1-3 Enclave troops to spawn, creating an endless amount of weapons/armor.
  • At some places, the outposts are completely overrun before the player arrives. For example, At yao guai tunnels there are remains of an outpost littered around the nearby area, presumably destroyed by the yao guai. Also, there is an outpost near the Chryslus building which is unmanned and covered in raider graffiti, with some raiders nearby using Enclave equipment.
  • One Enclave outpost has an eyebot in the form of a container.
  • Some Enclave camps spawn at exactly the same locations as random encounters. Other camps occur in the path of, or very near, random encounter patrol routes.
