Old Olney Underground is a place added to Fallout 3 with the add-on Broken Steel, accessed via a ladder in Old Olney Sewer.

As part of the quest Shock Value the Lone Wanderer passes this area to reach the Olney Powerworks. It is inhabited by ghouls Kidd and Wint and a lot of Deathclaws. The ghouls (along with several more now-deceased friends) tried to establish a colony here, but disturbed a Deathclaw nest. Kidd and Wint were the only survivors.



The area can be divided in four small subsections:

Skeletons, fortifications, and weapons caches throughout the hospital and basements suggest the area had seen a large battle long before the Ghouls tried to establish a colony there. Relatively recent tunneling suggests one faction may have tried to burrow their way into their enemy. The identities of the combatants, the era in which the conflict took place, and the origin of the Deathclaw hive remains a mystery. But a possible explanation may be rioting in or around the hospital as a result of the rapid deterioration of humanitarian conditions after the Great War. A similar incident occurred at Germantown Police HQ.

Notable loot

  • A Mini Nuke is found underneath a Teddy Bear next to a bookshelf full of children's toys. The room is located behind the Lone Wanderer after he/she meets the first Deathclaw on the ramp. When at the top of the ramp, turn around to see a small gap in the wall to the right. After entering the room you will notice the broken door so the gap in the wall is the only way to access the Mini Nuke. (Also, between the two upright filing cabinets, there is a shelf on the wall with a box on it. In the box is some Flamer fuel and beside it are two Microfusion Cells and a Frag Grenade.)
  • Underneath the hospital area, and into the utility area (beyond the exploding rubble), be prepared to meet several Deathclaws. There is a locked cell door behind a chain link fence near the first counter with a workbench on it. Opening the door reveals a set of stairs down to a single room. Behind the makeshift barricade is a Nuka Cola Quantum behind a Ham Radio.


  • When coming to the end of the tunnels and up to the hospital, the player has the body of a dead ghoul thrown at them by a Deathclaw.
  • After going through the hospital area, the player will come to a bathtub with a First Aid Box in it. Beyond that there is a small room with a pile of rubble blocking the exit. When the player approaches, there are a few Frag Mines laying about. Two are armed (one of them located beneath a fire extinguisher amidst the rubble) and may remove the majority of the obstacle if triggered.
  • Deathclaws respawn, so be wary on your next visit.
  • Kidd and Wint are the names of two villians (partners in more than one sense) in the James Bond film (and book) Diamonds Are Forever.
  • A Teddy Bear is found sitting on the floor next to a cigarette in an ashtray, a bottle of whiskey and a shot glass. He's on the top floor of the medical area along the southern wall, in an alcove that's home to a Nuka Cola machine and an Eat'o'tronic 3000.


Old Olney Underground appears only in the Fallout 3 add-on Broken Steel.
