The scavenger ruins are an unmarked location in the Capital Wasteland, just north of Charnel House.


The ruins are inhabited by a scavenger which you can trade with or request repairs from. You can take his pre-War books and Nuka-Cola Quantum without penalty, but accessing his footlocker, food, purified water or other items counts as stealing.

Notable loot


  • Although there are 2 beds, there is only 1 scavenger, also the other bed can not be used by the player.
  • There is a random encounter nearby which may cause the death of the scavenger.


The scavenger ruins appear only in Fallout 3.
