Background[edit | edit source]
Before the war, Vault-Tec Industries began construction of Vault 114 inside Boston's Park Street subway station as a cost cutting measure. However, the project was never completed, due to Vault-Tec contracting out the construction. Those entrusted to complete this facility would never finish the job, embezzling funds. This corrupt boondoggle matters little to the gangsters who have taken up residence inside the facility centuries after the Great War, as it is complete just enough.
The purpose of the Vault, officially, was to provide safe shelter for the creme de la creme of Boston's society, assured that they would ride out the nuclear devastation in luxury. However, the truth was the opposite - Vault-Tec set up an experiment where 120 formerly affluent residents would be placed in conditions typical of poor housing (multiple families per room, lack of amenities, etc.), with an anti-authority Overseer chosen from the public. All in order to study human reaction to stress.
The Vault was never used and remained in its incomplete condition until the 23rd century. It is a mystery what happened to the vaults previous inhabitants, but when a band of small time crooks from Goodneighbor were muscled out of the old neighborhood by bigger players, Skinny Malone's band of Triggermen claimed it as their own. Although this is a perfect hideout for the band of criminals, they were finally undone when the gang held Nick Valentine hostage, and were subsequently slaughtered during his rescue.

Layout[edit | edit source]
Accessed through the tunnels of Park Station, the Vault is located northwest of the tracks. Once the door is opened, progress straight ahead is impeded by a door that requires a key, forcing one through the door to the northwest. The subsequent hallway descends further into the vault; it leads to a storeroom connected to a long hallway which terminates at a cave dominated with catwalks.
The catwalks of this cave wrap around and return back into the vault. The only way to proceed is to jump down a two story hole into a small server room; continuing down the adjacent hallway leads to Vault 114 proper. The subsequent hallway leads to the Vault's atrium, separated into three tiers. A staircase in the southwest corner of the second tier ascends to the third, which hosts the overseer's office and the imprisoned Nick Valentine, and a door in the southeast corner descends to the first tier.
On the west end of the atrium's first level leads to the Vault's communal showers and lavatory. An adjacent stairwell ascends to the residential quarters, including the laundry and cafeteria; beyond it are more stairs leading up to the Vault's nursery, Advanced-locked depot (which contains a Master-locked safe), and finally the exit, which brings one back to the Vault's entrance in Park Street station.

- Triggerman: "So, I got a question. Why the hell would anyone build a Vault out of a subway station? This place is like... the exact opposite of air-tight."
Triggerman: "Because they weren't planning to use it, you moron. We used to pull this kind of con all the time back before the war. Get a bunch of union boys to work some construction job that would go nowhere. Keep everyone on payroll."

- Nick Valentine: "Malone's crew here used to be small time, muscled out of the old neighborhood by bigger players. Until they found this place."
"Don't know what happened to the previous owners, but they're not exactly around to charge rent. An empty vault. Perfect hideout. Hold up! I hear some of them coming."
"Nice and quiet. You keep this up, you'll make a name for yourself. Not a good name, mind you, but who cares?"
"Hard and loud, huh? Well, it gets the job done. Too bad for whoever cleans up the floors..."
"This door's on the fritz. Let me see if I can get it open... Almost got it... there we are. Hell of a lot easier to do when the lock isn't on the other side..."
"More stairs? Who built this damn Vault, a fitness instructor?"
"Skinny Malone and the rest of his boys are waiting for us, somewhere. The name's, uh, ironic, but don't let that fool you. He's dangerous."
"Another locked door. Shouldn't be too hard... Okay, I got it, but I hear big, fat footsteps on the other side. Once we step through this door, get ready for anything."
