This is an emergency message to all commonwealth army soldiers. Emergency protocols One Seven Echo Charlie Niner are in effect. If you are in distress, please proceed to the South Boston Military Checkpoint for aid. Coordinates are available in your emergency handbook. This checkpoint has been designated as a safehouse in case of enemy invasion, and is currently stocked with additional food, water, and ammunition. This safehouse is for military personal only. Citizens, including non-military family members, will be turned away for matters of national safety. This message will repeat.

The South Boston military checkpoint is a location in the Commonwealth.


A pre-War military checkpoint used for inspecting vehicles seeking to enter Boston, Echo Detachment of the 104th Infantry Regiment was authorized for thorough inspections of vehicles, up to and including stripping them down to their base components.[1] After the war, it was designated as a safehouse for military personnel although not their families. Finally in the 23rd century, it was occupied by a squad of Gunners, preying on the people in the surrounding areas.[2][3]


The checkpoint consists of a concrete bunker with a weapons workbench and an adjacent power armor station cage. A trailer and an IFV are parked next to it, and a mobile house is on the other side of the road, used for interrogations before the War.

Notable loot


The South Boston military checkpoint appears only in Fallout 4.
