The scavenger shack is an unmarked location in the Capital Wasteland. It is east of Arefu, west of Hamilton's hideaway, and is located along the Potomac River.


It is a shack on top of a hill next to the Potomac, which is infested with mirelurks. The shack is inhabited by a scavenger and their dog. In the camp is the scavenger's bed, two tables, and a fridge containing two ammunition boxes.

Notable loot

  • There is a metal helmet on the desk.
  • There is a mine box and a grenade box in the fridge, both requiring a Lockpick skill of 50 to open.
  • There are three tire irons in a box under the table.


  • The scavenger will often run away from the camp because of the nearby mirelurks. Therefore, they may be found dead nearby or be swimming in the river in order to flee.


The scavenger shack appears only in Fallout 3.
