Mama Murphy's chair is a constructible settlement item featured in Fallout 4.


After being rescued from Concord and given jet, Mama Murphy will claim to be tired and ask for a chair.

Upon the construction of her chair she will thank you and additional dialogue will become available. This will also allow the eventual use of the "Sight" to aid the journey, in exchange for many different drugs.

The item will be under the Special category of the Workshop and can only be built once. If not placed properly, it can be scrapped and built again in some time.

It can only be built in Sanctuary Hills.

  • xboxoneIcon xboxone ps4Icon ps4 pcIcon pc If one does not craft Mama Murphy's chair properly, she will be stuck sitting in the chair in the ceiling of the house in Sanctuary that has the main workbench attached. She will be above the kitchen with (usually) only her feet showing. One must hit her feet with hand or melee (do not shoot her feet or the people in your settlement will kill you) until she falls out of the chair, then go into "edit" mode and bring the chair out of the ceiling and on the floor. She will then spawn back in normally and sit in her chair as normal.[verification overdue]
    • The default distance for a build object may place the chair in the ceiling if building it in the living area of the house (since it can't place the chair in the wall). If you happen to proceed, Mama Murphy will walk in fairly soon afterwards and sit in the chair, making it unmoveable until she vacates it.

    • There are two possible ways to fix this:
      • xboxoneIcon xboxone Scrapping and rebuilding the chair may fix this bug. Once scrapped, the chair will become available to rebuild after waiting or sleeping for an hour.[verification overdue]
