Forged are members of the Forged, a raider faction in Fallout 4.


The Forged are similar to raiders, set apart only by their small numbers and fanatical obsession with the destructive power of fire. They can be found mainly in and around Saugus Ironworks, their home and base of operations, and they'll attack any and all trespassers on sight.

Although the gang itself (its leader Slag and initial members) came from outside the Commonwealth, the majority of its members were recruited from local raider gangs. Initial recruiting was slow, with many recruits failing the gruesome initiation rituals. However once they killed many of the notorious Gunners from the neighboring Hub City Auto Wreckers during battle word spread along with the number of recruits.[1]

The Forged are cruel and sadistic, showing no mercy to outsiders or even their fellow Forged. New recruits must pass several trials to prove their worth before becoming one of the Forged. No details about what these trials consist of can be found, only that they are extremely brutal, with failure ending in death. Once initiates pass these trials, they must change their name to a "tougher" nickname, typically one that invokes fire and machinery. One Saugus Ironworks terminal lists a number of members who failed the Forged in the past with names such as "Hood," "Rampart" and "Viper" (one former member, Yancey, was killed for refusing to change their name). The Forged have little tolerance for failure or disobedience, with punishments ranging from banishment, to having one's family slaughtered in front of them or being fed molten iron. The most common punishment is being fed to "The Forge," an enormous crucible filled with molten metal which the Forged seem to revere as a sort of idol or deity.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12]
