Fatal Attraction

The Presidential Metro is a network of metro tunnels that is added to Fallout 3 in the Broken Steel add-on.



It connects the Presidential Sub Level beneath the White House with Adams Air Force Base and The Capitol Building's East Wing. Protected and maintained by a computer system called M.A.R.Go.T., the area is guarded by Sentry Bots and swarming with ghouls.

Unmarked quest: Fatal Attraction

Main article: Fatal Attraction

A holo-tape titled "Sorry, My Darling" is located up a flight of stairs on a bench near the exit to the capital building east wing. Finding and listening to it will start the unmarked quest Fatal Attraction.

Notable loot

  • Nuka-Cola Quantum in the Equipment Room, which connects the western and eastern lines.


  • Unlike other metro tunnels where the trains have been rendered useless and the player is forced to walk from station to station, or the Train Tunnel leading to The Pitt where a loading screen takes the place of an actual journey, the Presidential Metro Line is usable.
  • There is a massive battle between the Feral Ghouls and Robots which the player learns from MARGoT. The numbers and strength of the ghouls can overwhelm the robots after awhile, so the player should help out the robots or face getting rushed by the ghouls once they are done with the robots. Alternatively, if you are finding the Ghouls too tough to make it through, they are fooled by the Ghoul Mask. This will give you the opportunity to take them by surprise.
  • The fuses you need to activate the metro are on the Presidential Sentry Bot. He will automatically replace the fuses once you kill all the Ghouls (thus clearing the security breach). You may have to go back talk to MARGoT again. She will tell you that the main repairs will now begin, and once you get back to the train, you will see the Presidential Sentry bot replace the fuse, enabling the metro.
  • If you did not find the Senators ID you can force the computer to reprogram with a high enough science skill.
  • This area contains many Easter Eggs, and players should take a second look at what appear to be dead ends.
  • At the junction where the working metro can take you to Adams AFB, there are two locked doors requiring a key to enter. There is no key to be found, however. The doors open when you kill the Presidential Metro bot, although this will of course make all other bots/turrets turn hostile. There is no loot behind these doors (just more bots).
  • Past the M.A.R.Go.T. computer entrance, at the end of the tracks there's a gnome with a camera and on the tracks, are two Teddy Bears tied to the tracks with a note saying 'Help Us' between them.
  • If you have a high enough Science skill or you found the Senator's ID, M.A.R.Go.T. will tell you that the last time the Metro line was in use was 200 years and 8 months before the current date. So whether or not the President made it to AAFB, someone certainly seems to have taken advantage of this escape route.


The Presidential Metro appears in the Fallout 3 add-on Broken Steel.
