Scrap metal is a junk item in Fallout 3.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

In the base game, scrap metal plays no further role in the game than collecting for certain people.

In The Pitt, the ammo press can also be used to melt scrap metal down into ammunition. Scrap metal is very useful in the presses due to it yielding more ammunition than scrap put in. For example, if one puts 500 pieces of scrap metal into the press to make shotgun shells, it will return 1000 shells.

Locations[edit | edit source]

  • All robots usually have a piece of scrap metal in their inventory.
  • Most toolboxes across the wasteland have scrap metal in them.
  • Most vendors that sell junk have scrap metal for sale.
  • The bin in Karl's shop in Meresti station has about 20 pieces of scrap metal in it.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • Scrap metal was originally called "spare parts" and was designed to function just like alien epoxy (which was added to Fallout 3 with the Mothership Zeta add-on), but this idea was dropped during pre-production.
