The abandoned car fort is a small makeshift fort located immediately northeast of Shalebridge, northwest of the Five Axles Rest Stop and southeast of SatCom Array NW-07c in the Capital Wasteland. There are no living inhabitants.


As the name suggests, it's a fort constructed of derelict cars on top of a highway. In the car fort, there are some dead raiders, a bed, six ammunition boxes, and a small crate containing random food, water and chems. There are some mirelurks below the bridge, and an Enclave outpost will be nearby after the Waters of Life.

Notable lootEdit

  • D.C. Journal of Internal Medicine is located to the south of the car fort, past a wrecked train and an irradiated zone, in between some ant egg clutches, next to the corpse of a raider. The corpse may not appear in all games, but the loot should still be there, albeit a bit harder to spot.
  • Stealth Boy in the same spot as the D.C. Journal of Internal Medicine. If the corpse is present, it may need to be moved to reveal the Stealth Boy.
  • Tales of a Junktown Jerky Vendor at the car fort next to the northwestern bed.


  • There is an Enclave outpost just up the highway, to the northwest.
  • There is a random spawn location on the hillside next to this location that can spawn a single raider or 2 bloatflies.


The abandoned car fort appears only in Fallout 3.
