As my experience level in Fallout 3 gets higher, I want to hunt a lot more deathclaws. Is there a part of the map that is just lousy with deathclaws?

  • I think it's Deathclaw Sanctuary in the South... west(?) corner of the map, but I'm not sure. There is a bobblehead and a named weapon there though! =D

  • @Fluttershy You mean a "unique" variant of a weapon :D

  • @Retrosaur Yeah. One of those unique weapons with a name! =D

The two most populated areas full of Deathclaws would be Old Olney and the Deathclaw Sanctuary.


The deathclaws in the sanctuary do not respawn. You must complete waters of life to get more than 1-2 to spawn near the exterior entrance.

Old Olney and the area near the alien crash site/power station are dependable locations prior to completing the quest. A one time spawn of 4-5 will also occur near the raid shack/bethesda ruins before becoming randomized creatures.
