Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Ouroboros gate is the entrance to Ouroboros.


The city itself is surrounded by a wall composed of flatbed trailers lying on their side. Just outside the wall is a trench filled with junk and debris of various shapes and sizes. The city gates are made from a flatbed cut in half and then mounted on the axle of yet another flatbed. A lift-gate from a truck spans the trench at the gate. Rising above the wall on either side of the gate is a small watch tower. Guards are stationed in the watch towers at all times. Another guard is stationed at the lift-gate.

Daily activityEdit

The guards watch for any large forces approaching the city. If one is spotted then the lift-gate is raised and the gates sealed. The defenders then try to outlast the siege. There is ample food and water stored in the city to last for a month or more. This should be long enough to outlast any attackers who do not have well established supply lines. Small groups or individuals are allowed to approach and enter the city without any hindrance.


Ouroboros did not appear nor was mentioned in any of the published games, but was to appear in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 project by Black Isle Studios. It is not certain if it will appear in any future Fallout game.

Behind the scenesEdit

Ouroboros means "tail-devouring snake" in Greek, and is usually depicted by a snake or dragon eating its own tail.
