Fallout 3 locations project
Georgetown is a Washington, D.C. neighborhood located in the northern part of the city. While it is only accessible via the Metro system, there are numerous metro stations connected to it. The Lone Wanderer will most likely discover the area via the Tepid sewer, since research for the Wasteland Survival Guide requires the player to enter there.
Background[edit | edit source]
Georgetown is a historic neighborhood, commercial, and entertainment district located in northwest Washington, D.C., situated along the Potomac River. Founded in 1751 in the Province of Maryland, the port of Georgetown predated the establishment of the state of Maryland by 25 years and the District of Columbia and city of Washington by 39 years. Georgetown remained a separate municipality, in the county of Washington, until 1871, when the United States Congress created a new consolidated government for the whole District of Columbia. A separate act passed in 1895 specifically repealed Georgetown's remaining local ordinances and renamed Georgetown's streets to conform with those in the City of Washington.
Layout[edit | edit source]
In the south a rather large parking lot with some roaming super mutants. The La Maison Beauregard is located here.
Going north, various ruined office buildings, houses and some stores. The north area has an artificial canal running from the mid-area to the north, going below a right-angled elevated highway, with a large gap just above the canal.
Notable loot[edit | edit source]
- Lying, Congressional Style in the McClellan family townhome.
- Stealth Boy next to Grognak the Barbarian on the book shelf in a blown up building near the exit of the DCTA tunnel 014-B Potomac overlooking a small canal.
- Nuka-Cola Quantum in the Pulowski Preservation shelter next to Cornucopia Fresh Groceries.
- U.S. Army: 30 Handy Flamethrower Recipes inside the La Maison Beauregard Lobby. As soon as you enter, turn left through a doorway and it will be on the floor behind the desk.
- Nuka-Cola Quantum on a shelf behind the upstairs bar in La Maison Beauregard.
- Stealth Boy, mini nuke as well as a couple of missiles on a pool table upstairs.
- A sniper rifle and .308 ammunition next to a dead raider on the second floor of a house in ruins east of the McClellan family townhome (accessible through the backyard area). Beware of the traps in both entrances to the house.
- Chinese Army: Special Ops Manual located in Georgetown/The Mall Metro near the last ticket booth before exiting towards the Lincoln Memorial.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The whole area has an abundance of car wrecks. Being ambushed by super mutants carrying missile launchers can lead to the cars exploding in a chain reaction.
- The pitching baseball machine trap has a different trigger. When trying to disarm it, the trap will tell you that it is activated somewhere else.
- The whole Georgetown area is filled with super mutants and centaurs, turning it into a death trap for low-leveled players.
