The Circle of Steel hideout is a district of the Maxson bunker.
This is a random village that was wiped out by the Circle of Steel and then turned into a base of operations for their raids. Its discoverer will be required to lay siege to the village and eliminate the Circle of Steel soldiers that are entrenched here before escaping.
This village was chosen by the Circle of Steel for two reasons. First, they had the misfortune of owning a pre-War water evaporation device. This advanced piece of machinery was able to take water out of the hot desert air and store it for irrigating the meager crops of the village. Through proper rationing, it was able to provide water for the entire village as well. Second, the village was found to be in a very defensible area.
This location should be set up as a tactical combat area. Guards will be stationed near the single entry point, which may seem to outnumbered any opposition by the technology in which the guards are using, but in reality, they are easy to take out, the Circle of Steel also patrol the fences regularly. Small guard stations are scattered about that give clear angles of view over large areas of the village. Each of these stations is equipped with a mini-gun for maximum effect.
