The Five Axles Rest Stop is located directly north of Rockbreaker's Last Gas in the Capital Wasteland.


It is a raider encampment consisting of four trucks with trailers. Shooting the four trucks from a distance will cause them to explode and will most likely kill or severely injure the raiders inside the camp.

To the north on the freeway a parked military truck with 3 ammunition boxes can be found.

Notable loot


  • Raiders always respawn sleeping in the same truck when fast traveling there.
  • Be careful when walking in, because there are mines on each of the sides you can come in.
  • It appears that the raiders will always be sleeping, no matter the time of day.
  • Northeast from the circle of trucks, down the road towards the broken overhead metro rail, there will be some floating rocks sitting on top of a bush.


Five Axles Rest Stop appears only in Fallout 3.
