Remember the vaults from Fallout 3 and New Vegas? Ya know, those underground things with horrible experiments and...

Wait...You hear that?


All kidding aside, lets talk about vaults in the Fallout 4 Boston Wasteland!

So, 31 out of 122 Vaults have been explored (not counting Vault 0, and counting Vault 17, 27, 36, 42, 43, 53, 55, 56, 68, 69, and the infamous 77 even though we haven't actually seen it in a game). That leaves 91 Vaults to still be explored, which if you think about, is not a huge lot to be scattered throughout the other 45 States of the US we haven't explored yet in a Fallout game. But, whatever. Fallout logic will stay Fallout logic, no matter how un-logical (Yes, that is a word now!). So far, we only know of one vault in Boston, and maybe 2 if you count that gameplay leak of the vault full of super mutants, but that might still be Vault 111. But, taking into account that we haven't seen 10 of these vaults we know exist in a previous game, there could be a total of 101 other Vaults in Fallout 4.

Now, just saying, if you don't want to read lots and lots of numbers and stuff, and just want to read a couple ideas for new vaults, just scroll down until you see some bold text.

One I would specifically like to see is Vault 77. Just sounds super creepy, giving a scary aspect to Fallout 4 that we haven't seen yet. A box of puppets..ugh.

But what could we end up exploring this coming Tuesday? Do we really know what awaits us in the harsh Boston wasteland?

There's the ones we spoke of before (Vault 17, 27, 36, 42, 43, 53, 55, 56, 68, 69, and 77 which we haven't seen yet) or Vault 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 14, 16, 18, 20, 23, 24, 25, 26, 28, 30, 31, 32, 33, 35, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 54, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 88, 89, 90, 91, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 100, 102, 103, 104, 105, 107, 109, 110, 113, 114, 115, 116, 117, 118, 119, 120, 121, 122. So yeah, 91 more vaults, as I said earlier. But what kind of ideas can we put together for these vaults? Let's start thinking.

We know atleast a few of these will be in Fallout 4.

Now, just one more thing before we go into ideas and all that.

Some of those never seen vaults were supposed to be in Fallout games before, and thats where the history of more vaults and the idea of Fallout 4 vaults get interesting.

Vault 6 was supposed to be in Fallout Extreme, a cancelled Fallout spinoff by Interplay.

Vault 24 was cut from Fallout New Vegas, but there is still a jumpsuit for Vault 24 somewhere..

Vault 39 was supposed to be in BoS 2 (thank god it didn't)

That line was uncalled for. Sorry BoS.

Vault 74 was, In the tutorial, it's a very small vault consisting only of the overseer's office, atrium, clinic, and quarters (blocked). It was part of the Fallout 3 modding tutorial so presumably it was in the Capital Wasteland, though Todd (Godd) Howard can do whatever he wants.

Vault 100 was part of Fallout 3's cut content.

But none of those actually matter. They were all in different states like Mount St. Helens, Washington and Abilene, Texas. But as I said before Godd Howard can do whatever he wants. So definitly we have 3 sources of vault ideas already.

1 - Vaults mentioned but never seen

2 - Brand new vaults

3 - Brand new vaults that were supposed to be in previous games, so they already have a story and stuff

So thats some intro/insight. Now onto my/our own ideas!

So I asked a few people on Twitter, but mostly just asked myself, What do you want to see for vaults in Fallout 4?


Vault 1 - Refuge for wealthy people like the Bill Gate's people of Fallout's universe.

I know it's Gabe Newell not Bill Gates
I know it's Gabe Newell not Bill Gates

Vault 2 - The first select group of average citizens, allowed into a Vault.

Vault 4 - A vault filled with 990 androids and only 10 people. The andriods became hostile toward the humans, similar to the vault of Gary, and killed all the humans until only non-humans were left.

Vault 57 - A new overseer is elected every 1 year, but overseers aren't allowed to leave their office until that one year is up. Eventually, after almost everybody has been overseer they are all insane.

Vault 66 - A group of hardcore criminals (murderers, etc.) released from jail and put into a vault to see how long any of them would last.

Vault 102 - 300 Tarantula Spiders released into the vault with the residents, still with venom and all.

Vault 120 - A room in the back full of illegal drugs and the vault residents given full access.

Vault 122 - Homeless people swept off the street to see how they would react under such a major life change.

That's just a few vault ideas. I'll update this later as inspiration strikes for more vaults. What do you guys think? What kind of vaults do you guys want to see or fight through/play through during your great journey through Fallout 4?

Anyway, Cya later Fallout lovers!

Thanks for reading

P.S, remember not to go into any Fallout 4 vaults unprepared! Grab some Nuka Cola Quantom from Target on November 10th! It's great! (I'm not sponsored I swear, but seriously, think about getting some. And by some, I mean several gallons of it!)
