The wastelander tent and sniper vista[1] is an unmarked location in Fallout 3, located on the very edge of the map, southwest of the yao guai tunnels and west of Rockopolis. Its number 7.B in the strategy guide.


The location is difficult to spot, due to being surrounded by cliffs on three sides. The tent can also be difficult to see as it is camouflaged against the rocks. You will find two wastelanders around a campfire listening to a radio here.

On top of the nearby rock spire, you will find an elevated platform with a chair providing an ideal observation perch for a sniper, where a rifle and an ammunition box can be found. The tent itself contains a ham radio, a usable bed, 2 first aid boxes, and other minor loot - a plasma grenade may be found in one of the pots. Behind the tent are two more ammunition boxes, one with mines in it.

Notable loot


  • This location can be used for Fallout 3 player housing if needed, but somewhat of an inconvenience as for no fast travel marker.
  • The sniper's perch provides an excellent means of dealing with a band of raiders to the south.


The wastelander tent and sniper vista appears only in Fallout 3.
