A workbench crate is a storage container in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts that is always located next to a workbench.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Each crate contains random loot created by two checks against a random loot table. Each check results in one of 25 different items or item sets, which mostly include crafting ingredients and drained Energy Weapons ammunition, but also all skill books that do not improve combat skills. The random loot of this container is the only source of additional skill books in Honest Hearts.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Workbench crates use the metal box model from Fallout: New Vegas.
  • Chances for all items are taken and derived from the GECK.
  • Entering a cave containing a workbench crate for the first time permanently sets its content, which is irreversible without loading a save game prior to entering the specific cave or using the console, selecting it, and typing "resetinventory".
