Conflicting comments

  • The protectrons check for tickets or passes, having the red pass will make the protectrons help you whenever on one of the red line stations, if in possession of the blue pass the protectrons will help you out on the blue line stations by killing enemies found nearby (ie. feral ghouls and raiders).
  • Metro tickets are actually what are required to get the subway Protectrons to aid you against other dwellers. The red and blue passes do not seem to do anything at all, and look as though they may be part of some future expansion/dlc.

Can someone test this out and delete the false affirmation ? I have no 'live' Protectrons left to fiddle with.

^ Concering the above, I have seen the first comment to be correct myself. 23:22, August 27, 2010 (UTC)boomheadshot

No it's not. --Kris mailbox 23:31, August 27, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, in fact it is true. You might not notice it at first - as the ticket sometimes is removed from your inventory by default without you noticing - but without a ticket, when you try to get past a gate, the robot requests one from you. If you lack one, it becomes hostile. ~ L

They were created by the Metro Train company for the Red and Blue Transits for travelers to use to ride those two trains. The white transit NEVER had a pass created hence no white passes exist. So unless you like collecting them or want a few extra caps they are worthless..... THE FALLOUT WIKI SAYS SO.



We should consider, that the drop places and creatures are random, otherwise the list will be endless. I will verify in time if the places are set or that it won't happen a second time. MiquelXY 22:45, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

I agree, I looted blue card from the lower halls of Museum of History, though it's being said you can find a red one there. I assume they're random Goekhan 23:26, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
I also agree. Got two red ones from ghouls in the tunnel while escaping from Project Purity. Totally random. Dragunova 14:56, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
I just picked one up off a ghoul in the museum of history upper library. I went around for 10 mins looking for something to use it with, then I came here. 00:14, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
I got both cards in the space of 10-30 minutes at the Red Rocket Tricycle factory on seperate Glowing Ones. Couldn't find a place to use them, came here. :P 10:38, 29 December 2008 (UTC)


Somebody added:

(Edit: Actually, they are more likely pass cards for the Blue and Red subway lines that you see on subway maps and when you are actually in the subway tunnels.)

Place this on the discussion board please, as it is info that is not proven nor correct. The passes for the Metro are the Metro Tickets, if I think what you mean. And there are three coloured lines and only two coloured passes...

MiquelXY 15:55, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Could be a reference to the blue and red keycards in Fallout 2.-- 00:48, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

I also had that thought, but still, there would be a yellow one somewhere. And the metro lines also doesnt make sense, while nobody has found a white keycard yet... MiquelXY 09:10, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

MisterTea Ok i just discovered and added that there is no yellow key . Only red and blue !!!

Pass Card Drop

I actually got a blue card off the ghoul in the Museum of History lower area instead of a red one.Amaner 17:39, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

glowing ones

I have only gotten pass cards of glowing ones.

Same with me

I found a red pass card on a ghoul in the Tenleytown/Friendship Station. He was one of the normal pinkish ones, right after a fight with a super mutant wielding a nail board. Hope that helps.

I got a red pass off a roamer in Dunwich.-- 10:39, January 16, 2011 (UTC)

Yellow Pass Card

I found a yellow pass card off a ghoul in the dunwitch building. This was on the 360 version. 16:35, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Can you extract an additem code from it? Also this would mean it IS an easter egg refering to doom and not the Metro Ticket explaination, which I highly doubted in the first place... MiquelXY 21:56, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
If this is anything like the real world, then it is merely a transit pass. Do the colored passes get used up when they're scanned? If not, then it's definetely just a transit pass. Metro tickets get used up - akin to tickets used in real world transit, while passes are just shown/scanned and kept for further use. --DarkJeff 04:06, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
Checked the G.E.C.K. on the PC version, there is no Yellow Passcard on the PC version, at least. 14:15, 2 January 2009 (UTC)


On my PC copy of FO3 I have looted one blue card on a male character and two red on a female (one of each in the Pitt, another red one from a ghoul). My sister has collected both red and blue cards on her female character on the Xbox 360 version. Whether this is enough to take down the speculation on gender's relevance is up to you guys. -- 14:38, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Nope, Male character and I have 10s of each. ZanderArch 00:23, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Doom refence

Took out the reference since doom had 4 card colors red, blue, green, and yellow. Fallout 3 only has red and blue. If they were going to make a tie, I think they would of added the two extra colors. "The blue and red pass cards may be a reference to the game Doom and serve no purpose so far."

GodsHand 20:15, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

Green? Classic Doom had no green card. Ejnomad07 02:44, May 7, 2010 (UTC)

I'm fairly certain that Green Cards don't appear in any other Doom for that matter. Also they were never "carried by nondescript zombies" as the article says, they were usually on a shelf, platform, or on top of a trap, but these points are moot since the cards aren't a nod to Doom in any way whatsoever. 10:28, May 24, 2010 (UTC)HairBySnowflake

I agree, the cards have absolutely nothing to do with Doom. As HBS indicated, the keycards in Doom were never carried by zombies. I'm pretty sure they were almost never carried by enemies at all, so I really don't think there's any reason to view these as nod. I'm removing the Doom comment.Geech 01:29, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

The Pitt red pass card

I just downloaded The Pitt and was in the steelyard and found a red pass card on a trog. So this means they are spread across the fallout universe being found in FO2 FO3 and in The Pitt. Also I have found a blue pass card on a ghoul in the sub way near tenpenny tower. (just cant remember that right now) If any one else sees them on expansions POST IT!!!! Good luck on your hunt for the purpose of these randomly appearing cards. (:

PS: I am using Xbox 360 not pc or any other platforms. June 28 2010

No cards on zeta

I recently completed mothership zeta not finding any cards. I scoured the entire ship searching for one. (thats why i got this expansion) SO thats it no expansions except pitt have cards due to the fact i have them all. Hope i have helped. Oct. 8 2010

If you watch FPSKyles Lets Play, he finds a red pass card on what it seems to be the only feral ghoul on the ship.

okay if you look it up in the wiki it says.... that the red and blue pass cards were created for the red and blue lines for people to use for the trains.... the white line never had a pass created.... hence forth.... stop wasting time with them they are useless.... unless u want a couple caps or are a collector.
