A wanderer is a unique raider in the Capital Wasteland in the year 2277.


A wanderer is accompanied by three raider guard dogs. They are found patrolling the area east of Roosevelt Academy.


South of Roosevelt Academy is an elevated railway track. Follow alongside it heading east until you see an explosive chain of cars ending in a bus. Hop down into the valley where the highway breaks off and a red train car has collapsed. Go down the valley a short distance northwest, and you will see a raised wooden platform on your left, which appears to be his/her camp. A wanderer will be patrolling around this area, accompanied by three raider guard dogs. See the images below.

  • A wanderer's sex and appearance are randomly generated.
  • In and around the platform there is some food, ammunition, a mini nuke (under the table on top of the house), a pre-War book (on top of the table), and two of the relatively rare dog bowls.
  • If you do not find A wanderer near the camp, it is likely he/she has already been killed, and the corpse could be anywhere within their patrol radius.
  • Protectrons and robobrains may randomly spawn in the area.


A wanderer appears only in Fallout 3.
