Scrap Metal is an item in Fallout 3 which can be traded to various different NPCs located in the Capital Wasteland.

Ammo Press (The Pitt)

The Ammo Press in The Pitt is located in the Mill. Scrap metal is very useful in the presses due to it yielding more ammo than scrap put in. For example, if one puts 500 pieces of scrap metal into the press to make Shotgun Shells, it will return 1000 shells.


Scrap Metal can be found throughout the Capital Wasteland. For semi-specific locations, please refer to the discussion page.

Behind the scenes

  • Scrap metal was originally called "spare parts" and was designed to function just like Alien Epoxy (which was added to Fallout 3 with the Mothership Zeta add-on), but this idea was dropped during pre-production.
