The Guardian of Forever is a special encounter in Fallout 2. The Guardian is a giant, ancient-looking time portal which allows the Chosen One to travel back in time before the start of Fallout to break the water chip in Vault 13. After having broken the water chip, a notice reads "the vault has maybe 100-150 days left of water. This comforts you for some reason."
In the Vault, you can browse only the Overseer's command center. Although linear, it provides palpable benefits to the player character. Loot includes Mentats and the unique energy weapon, Solar Scorcher.
Remember to get all of the loot, because returning is impossible after leaving.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Guardian of Forever is a reference to the Star Trek episode "The City on the Edge of Forever".
