it should be added that there's a copy of the U.S. Army: 30 Handy Flamethrower Recipes inside the locked room with all the ammo and guns
Abandoned Shack north of the Armory
I don't know how else to broach the subject, since we don't seenm to have a Wikia Page called "Unmarked Places on the Map," so I brought this one here -since the location in question is just north of the Wheaton Armory.
Anybody here know about the Shack here, that requires a key to get into??
Here is the answer http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Regulator_HQ But it should be noted somewhere so people won't get confused.
Brotherhood Outcasts at the Armory
When I first discovered the Armory, I was following 3 green lines on my compass. They turned out to be Brotherhood Outcasts. As I was a little behind, they ended up being killed by the Raiders and I looted some great gear from them! Has anyone else found Outcasts here?
Yep, I did, it's just a roaming patrol though.
I was heading north from Angie's house when i ran into two Outcasts and an Outcast Protectron underneath the old rail lines. followed them all the way to the armory where i looted them after they attacked it.
In my current game, with Broken Steel loaded, the 2 Enclave soldiers killed the Outcasts as well as the Raider sentry, then I sniped 'em both! Ha, ha!--Brian ranzoni 09:31, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
Origin of the name
I was wondering if anyone had any idea of the origin of the name; is it a military reference? Or perhaps a nod to actor Wil Wheaton?
- I think it's a coincidence with no special meaning. Might as well be a hat tip to the ROTC at Wheaton College, or the American Legion post in Wheaton, MD.Shadowgm 18:53, 7 January 2009 (UTC)Shadowgm
Chances are pretty high that it's named for Wheaton, MD, continuing the trend of using real places as the basis for many of the names in the game.
I am fairly certain that there is a real life Wheaton Armory, its like a, coast guard post or somethingKatikar 21:53, February 7, 2010 (UTC)
It was named after me, my last name is Wheaton!Kornflakes89 05:14, June 29, 2011 (UTC)
I don't know if it's the same in every game, but when I picked up the loot it was in very bad condition. One item was almost completely broken. If this stuff is always in this condition, I think it should be mentioned in the article. --MadDawg2552 16:08, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
I'll see what I can do I started a new game so I can get the accurate loot to see if its random and I'll try to clean up the loot section, i.e. chinese pistols aren't really notable loot.
Upon entering the facility through the broken fence on the west side I proceeded to jump down onto the bunker entrance's roof to use it as a sniping position. However, much to my dismay as soon as I made contact with the steel roof I discovered it to be a minefield after hearing the sound of activated mines and witnessing the resulting explosions after I jumped to the concrete ledge immediately west of the roof. There appear to be no such mines visible, yet without fail every time I reload the previous quicksave the roof seems to be loaded with mines. My speculation is that they're not actually invisible, but rather perhaps the tangible surface of the roof is out of sync, effectively hiding the mines beneath the visible surface of the roof. Does anybody actually know why this is? Jellyb0nes 04:03, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
