Vault 95

Vault 95 is a Vault-Tec vault located in the Commonwealth. It is located at the northeast edge of the Glowing Sea.


Vault-Tec created Vault 95 as a rehabilitation institute for people who suffered from chem addiction. The residents of the vault would continue with the program for 5 years, after which a planted Vault-Tec agent would then unearth a pre-placed, hidden supply of chems to test the social and psychological reactions of the community. As such, it is a good place to find chems.

As reflected in the Vault 95 terminal entries, the rehabilitation program was effective in managing the addiction of its residents, with decisions to maintain the program remaining unanimous throughout the Vault's early years. Private logs reveal that the introduction of chems effectively tore apart the family that the residents had created for each-other, with some residents caving almost immediately to their urges. This stash may be found as one descends the stairs into the Residential area, heading straight to the bathrooms and then looking right. Despite the fate of the vault, the stash still contains moderate quantities of chems and alcohol.

It seems likely that all of the Vault's inhabitants overdosed or fled well before the Gunners moved in, and multiple bodies may be found in and around the stash. In the bedroom slightly to the right of the stash are two bodies splayed out across the furniture. They are surrounded by what appears to be a civilised tea party, complete with mannequin attendees, Psycho, and jet. In one of the closed stalls in the bathroom to the left of the stash is a skeleton and a Psycho. Opposite the room where the Big guns bobblehead is contained, behind a novice locked door, a skeleton may be found slumped against the foot of a bed, a Psycho at his feet and two jet on an upturned waste basket next to him.

Judging from the otherwise homely and untouched nature of the rooms in that area, it seems probable the residents instantly capitulated to their addictions, shut themselves into their rooms and resumed their chem abuse. It also appears the Vault-Tec agent did not survive the ensuing violence, and his body and upgraded 10mm pistol may be found close to his terminal.

The vault is currently a base of operations for the Gunners. This is also one of the best places in the game to quickly obtain a large amount of aluminum and ceramic.


The entrance is heavily guarded by Gunners along with two assaultrons outside, and one assaultron and a Mister Gutsy inside. An elevator takes the player down to the vault itself. The vault proper has three separate sections. The south side has the cafeteria and the detox chamber. The west side has the reactor down below and the Overseer's office above. The north side has a heavily trapped tunnel that leads to the residential area.

Vault 95 was designed to house a maximum of 72 people as shown in a blueprint behind the Overseer's desk showing the layout of the entire Vault.

Notable lootEdit

  • Big guns bobblehead once down the elevator, turn right in the main room after the tin can chimes, go through the sliding door leading to the residential area. It will be in the northmost room (look at your local map) on top of a radio.
  • Stealth Boy in an Advanced locked room on the west side near the reactor.
  • One of the highest collections of Aluminum, in the form of aluminum cans, TV dinner trays, and surgical trays, rounding out to around 115 pieces.
  • A large number of Bobby pin boxes can be found here in various rooms and in medicine cabinets.

Related questsEdit

  • Benign Intervention - Cait wants to be cured from her addiction, but the only place rumoured to help her strong addiction is in Vault 95.


  • Jet was not created until after the Great War, making it impossible for it to be in Vault 95 for the residents to use. While some may argue that the Jet was brought in by the Gunners, a Vault-Tec Regional HQ terminal entry confirms the Jet was supplied by Vault-Tec, and its presence in Vault 95 remains inconsistent with Fallout canon.
  • While the enemies within the Vault periodically respawn, the items do not.


Vault 95 does make an appearance in Fallout 4, though it was first seen as an unused inventory icon in Fallout 3, Vault 95 jumpsuits exist in Fallout 3's art files.

Behind the scenesEdit

50 Vault-Tec C.E.O.The following is based on unverified behind the scenes information and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

In the Overseer's terminal, a logged document regarding one of support meetings where the question of the frequency of the group meetings is brought up, in addition to other spontaneous, off topic questions asked by several dwellers can be found. In the dialog, a Resident by the name of Randall makes several comments about fellow vault dwellers and about the detox program. Randall and many of the details regarding the nature of the support meeting can be seen as a cameo to the movie and book "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest." Where "Randall" in the Meeting notes can be seen as the character Randle McMurphy.
