Immediately outside of the Irradiated Metro entrance there is an entrance to the access hall, which will grant access to the overhead walkway where 2 super mutants (one holding either a minigun or missile launcher) will ambush the player. Depending upon player level, one may be a super mutant overlord.
The tunnel system is slightly radioactive in some places. The stations themselves are collapsing, but there is an access tunnel on the right as you enter the station. Use the local map to make quick work of this area, as most paths lead to dead ends.
- A fair amount of feral ghouls, with a glowing one or 2. With the Broken Steel add-on a feral ghoul reaver or 2 can sometimes appear.
- A Chinese Army: Special Ops Training Manual is on some electrical equipment. It's in the west side of the basement, on top of a machine overlooking the water. (A)
- A rare rake is found next to a lawnmower on the way to the L'Enfant Plaza exit.
The irradiated metro appears only in Fallout 3.
