A workbench crate is a storage container in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts that is always located next to a workbench.


Each crate contains random loot determined by two checks against a random loot table. Each check results in one of 25 different items or item sets, which mostly include crafting ingredients and drained Energy Weapons ammunition, but also all skill books that do not improve combat skills. The random loot of this container is the only source of additional skill books in Honest Hearts.
