The X-7b "Boom Town" target zone is a location in the east of Big MT in 2281.

Layout

The X-7b "Boom Town" target zone is directly east of the X-8 research center. It is a mock settlement set up for the express purpose of testing the performance of Saturnite artillery shells. Several houses are destroyed, having craters in the center of the wreckage. The X-7a "Left Field" artillery launch facility is aimed directly at it in the west-southwest. The entire area is irradiated as a side effect of weapons testing, with craters full of green radioactive material.

Notable loot

Notes

  • When you fast travel to Boom Town, you will be facing a bombed out building with an Old World Flag painted in red on the wall (presumably left there by Ulysses).

Appearances

The X-7b "Boom Town" target zone appears only in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.

Behind the scenes

  • The term "Boom Town" is military slang for artificial settlements they would build and fill with houses, cars and mannequins to see how atomic bombs would affect them during nuclear testing in the 1950's and 60's.
