Hamilton's Hideaway is a small cave in the side of a cliff face in the Capital Wasteland. It is mentioned by Evan King in Arefu as a possible location of The Family as part of the Blood Ties quest.


This underground complex was originally a well-prepared shelter for a family of three - a husband, his wife Maggie, and their daughter Robin, established due to a mistrust of Vault-Tec. Fitted with air filtration, chemical toilets, an artesian well, and a fusion generator, it provided a long-stay option until radiation levels subsided.


Just north of Moonbeam outdoor cinema and southeast of Northwest Seneca Station, Hamilton's Hideaway is a network of tunnels that sprout from one single tunnel. Multiple catwalks lead over rock which leads into a hallway constructed of metal. The weapons cache for Caching in with Three Dog is located in the northwest corner of the hideaway, through a hole in the left wall.


The cave itself is populated with variants of radscorpions, radroaches, two or three raiders, and sometimes a giant radscorpion near the raider hideout. Outside the cave random enemies may spawn, mostly mole rats and mirelurks. Harder enemies may spawn at higher levels.

  • A room with 3 radroaches in it is located around the middle of the cache and the bandit lair. 2 of these radroaches will be hostile, so will the third. The third may spawn in the wall and if you try to shoot it, it falls out of the map and appears in the room, unstuck.
  • Some of these enemies will be dead when the player finds them, because radscorpions and raiders will fight each other.
  • Sometimes 1 or 3 dead wastelander bodies (that may have spawned alive) will appear.
  • At higher levels with Broken Steel installed, an albino radscorpion may be encountered.
  • When fast traveling here, on some occasions 3-4 yao guai will spawn.

  • In a cut terminal entry, it is stated that frank was disposed of in an furnace. Since the terminal and its entry were cut, it is not known if there is a furnace.
