A mailbox or mail dropbox is a type of container in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.

The term mailbox refers to the many bent and rusted postal storage vessels littering the wasteland. The mail dropbox is blue, metal and stands on 4 raised legs, while the standard mailbox is small, rust brown and sits on a pole. These were used by the pre-War postal service but now seem to be used as garbage cans. They contain minor loot, generally cherry bombs.

As a comprehensive list of every mailbox in Fallout 3 would be unrealistic at this point, it would be safe to assume that where a pre-War home or the remains of one is there will be a mailbox nearby. One noteworthy example would be the houses in Springvale.

ContentsEdit

The standard mailbox may contain junk items, and possibly a letter from Vault-Tec denying the household's residency in a Vault. They may even contain weak weapons, like brass or spiked knuckles. Mail dropboxes will often contain cherry bombs, random junk items and/or weaker melee weapons, like switchblades.

Notable lootEdit

  • Various skill magazines are located in all towns that have mailboxes.
  • Mailboxes will often respawn new contents after several days, sometimes producing new skill magazines.

TrapsEdit

There are some mailboxes that are rigged to explode when you step near them.

  • The Scrounger and Fortune Finder perks will increase the chance of finding ammunition and caps in mailboxes.
  • Outside a home in Springvale a letter from Vault-Tec can be found, and it is addressed to the Gomez family.
