| ||For the Fallout 3 location, see Scrapyard.|
There is only one thing that separates Scrapheap from the wasteland: the stench of brahmin dung. But without that dung, there would be no power generator.”— Baka
Scrapheap is the only location in the Fallout demo.
The town is probably located somewhere close to the Fallout area (its inhabitants mention Junktown and Necropolis). Scrapheap's walls are built with wrecked cars, much like the walls found at Junktown. According to the town name, one would expect to find a lot of scrap material there. The sole reason for its existence is the power generator that runs on brahmin excrement.
In 2161 it was dominated by a gang called the Crypts that controlled the only power generator in the town and therefore ruled over the small community. The leader of the Crypts was called Rayze. Their rival gang, the Fools, was led by a woman called Baka. She proclaimed herself to be the "Queen" of the gang.
It is not certain what eventually happened to the town. It is impossible to find it on either the Fallout (year 2161-2173) or the Fallout 2 (year 2241-2254) worldmap.
Though both the demo and full release versions begin on December 5th, the characters in each version are given different deadlines to find a water chip for Vault 13. In the Fallout demo, the player has 120 days to find the chip, while in the full release version of Fallout the player is given 150 days to meet their deadline.
- Scrapheap is the armpit of the desert. No better place to raise children, in my opinion. This place makes Junktown look like a living city of the ancients. - Rock
- After the War, only the Foolish remain. If I was brave enough, I would have taken my own life years ago. Instead, I pander to whatever gods of chance are left. - Baka
Scrapheap appears only in the Fallout demo. It uses the Junktown area map from the full release version, though it is populated by a different cast of characters with a different plot. While it might be considered a separate location in the Fallout canon, Phil can be found trying to shoo away Dogmeat as he does in the full release. One may also believe that the Crypts and the Fools could be prototypes for the factions that are present in the full release Junktown, and with a nod to the presence of Gizmo, it is possible that Scrapheap exists only in the megabytes of the Fallout demo and not in Fallout canon. However, Junktown is mentioned in Scrapheap, further leading to the opinion that it is just a whole separate location.
