Pre-war companies: Misc



Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From The Vault

The companies and corporations providing the goods and services society depended upon went up in smoke when the bombs fell. Yet some remnants of pre-war industry do remain. These surviving products and facilities can have a significant impact on life in the Wasteland.

While there are a few real-world companies mentioned in Fallout (particularly weapon manufacturers), there are more than a few that are unique to the Fallout universe. Most have only brief references, but a few are known in more detail.
