The Castle

cell name


ref id



“There it is. Pretty impressive, huh? Its real name is Fort Independence, but the Minutemen always just called it the Castle.”— Preston Garvey, during Taking Independence

The Castle is the former headquarters of the Minutemen in the Commonwealth in 2287. It is a possible settlement and can be reclaimed during the Taking Independence quest. It is built into Fort Independence and is located to the east of the Gwinnett restaurant and brewery.


Before the Great War, it was known as Fort Independence. The Minutemen repurposed it as their headquarters in the Commonwealth until a colony of mirelurks forced them out in 2240[1] and took it as their nest. Preston Garvey asks the Sole Survivor to reclaim the Castle for a new generation of the Minutemen.


Fort Independence is a star fort, consisting of five triangular bastions connected by walls. The walls are hollow and contain most of the fort's infrastructure, with only the workshop and the Radio Freedom transmitter out in the courtyard and two ruined gun positions on the top of the wall. The northwest and southwest walls have been all but demolished, and a sizable hole punched in the south wall as well, cutting off the west bastion—which contains the Castle armory—from access excepting through the Castle tunnels. The north bastion contains the Castle kitchen; the east, the general's quarters and access to the Castle Tunnels; the southeast, the barracks. The southwest bastion is completely inaccessible.

The Castle is initially occupied by a large group of mirelurks, and piles of mud studded with mirelurk egg clutches can be found all over the courtyard and all interior areas save the armory. Once the quest Taking Independence is completed, these will be cleared away and the fort made available for settlement.

Inside the fort is a missile launcher and flamer, as well as a small amount of ammunition for each. Once settled, it comes with five free beds, a medic stand, chemistry workbench, starter lighting and electrical cable system, and an industrial water purifier good for 40 units of water should the player reintroduce power into the system.

Inside the Armory is a cache of heavy weapons, a weapon and armor workbench, and three free laser turrets that can be stored or redeployed elsewhere using the workshop menu. Also present are the schematics for building the special artillery units. However, access to the Armory is impossible until the quest Old Guns is completed.

Access to the Castle settlement is done from the south via the main gate, and enemies will attack from this direction; behind the gate is a small and highly defensible room, which combined with the Castle's high and easily repaired walls makes it one of the safest settlements in the Commonwealth.

Notable lootEdit

  • Guns and Bullets issue #10 - On the radio operator’s desk, in the middle of the Castle grounds, outside.
  • Fat Man - In the armory accessible during/after Old Guns.
  • Various laser musket upgrades in the armory.
  • Minutemen general's uniform - In the Castle tunnels during the quest Old Guns.
  • Minutemen general's hat - In the Castle tunnels during Old Guns.
  • Fusion core - In the charging slot of a generator, in the Castle tunnels during Old Guns.
  • A flamer along with a large amount of fuel can be found scattered throughout the Castle.
    • Preston or any of the Minutemen may take the flamer when fighting against the mirelurks.
  • A missile launcher, along with some missiles scattered throughout the Castle.
  • Nuka grenade - On top of one of the shelves.
  • Bottle message #2 - Located near the south-southeastern star point by the water's edge. The submerged boat and the lootable steamer trunk for the objective is located just northwest of Spectacle Island.


  • It is possible to clear out the Castle before the Minutemen retake it during Taking Independence. When Preston Garvey asks the Sole Survivor if the Minutemen are ready to take back the Castle, one has the option to say that they have already cleared the place out.
    • The mess created by the mirelurks and the eggs (intact or smashed) will remain if takes this route. On PC, this can be worked around by entering the console command prid 12a244 followed by disable.
  • After gaining access to the workshop, the Castle will be partially cleaned up the next time the Survivor visits the settlement, provided they are away for a minimum time (12hrs?). Much of the overgrown vegetation will be gone, as well as some of the debris piles along the demolished walls.
  • The Castle's walls can be repaired effectively in build mode using shack foundations. However, this may cause a bug where enemies spawn inside the foundation blocks in some quests.
  • Unlike other settlements, settlers assigned to guard posts in the Castle will not be permanently posted at those guard posts; instead they patrol the Castle walls and stand watch at certain points, such as the entrances. This eliminates the need for multiple guard posts spread out around the Castle, as two guards will effectively cover all of it.
  • To open the way to the armory, the Sole Survivor must clear the rubble using the workshop in "Workshop Mode" and make their way through the castle tunnels to the other side.
  • The Castle already has an intricate electrical system, connect generators to the wiring and that should activate wall lights along the interior. There is a prefab water purifier that is connected to the wiring.
  • The built-in Castle radio, which broadcasts Radio Freedom, will attract more minutemen to the Castle; however, it appears to stop recruiting after the Castle has a total of 5 minutemen.
  • The Castle's minutemen cannot be assigned to all the same tasks as settlers (such as forming a supply line). There is one specifically assigned minuteman to handle the radio transmitter. His voice is the same as the broadcaster's on Radio Freedom.
  • Once connected to a power source, Radio Freedom will automatically begin broadcast from the Castle. However, this can be turned off by using the switch on the radio tower. Once the speakers are turned off, the only way to hear Radio Freedom will be to tune in on the Pip-Boy until you turn the speakers back on.
    • The water purifier is hooked up to the sinks in the kitchen in the north bastion; drinking from these will not raise radiation levels.
  • If one is following the Minutemen main storyline, the Castle will be the site of several battles against the Institute and the Brotherhood of Steel.
  • During Defend the Castle, one can expect to find the enemies on the path south.
  • If used as a settlement and a player uses the increased settlement size exploit, the Castle can possibly produce over 1,000 water.
  • If one stores power armor inside the armory, Ronnie Shaw may enter it during times when the Castle is being attacked.
  • There are a couple of respawning loot sites:
    • The diner outside the walls where the Minutemen gather before the assault to retake the Castle has an ammo box, a med box and three fragmentation mines that respawn. The ammo box and med box will contain different ammo types and chems each visit, but the three frag mines will always be present.
    • Once the armory has been accessed, inside is a box on a shelf containing artillery smoke grenades and flares that respawn.
  • Compared to its real life counterpart, both the Castle and Castle Island are much smaller.


The Castle appears only in Fallout 4.

Behind the scenesEdit

The following is based on unverified behind the scenes information and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Toward the end of the Castle tunnels, near General McGann's body, is a crate of Amontillado wine. Opposite the wine is a skeleton seemingly entombed in a wall. This is a reference to Edgar Allen Poe's story The Cask of Amontillado, where the protagonist's enemy is lured into an underground vault, chained and then encased by a wall. The label of the Amontillado Bottle reads "Montressor, Amontillado, Bottled by: P. Edgar" is again a direct reference to the work of Poe and the protagonist, Montresor.

  • While he was serving at Fort Independence, Poe noticed a gravestone in the fort's cemetery dedicated to Lt. Robert Massie, who died on Christmas Day in 1817 from a duel with Lt. Gustavus Drane. According to folklore, the soldiers lured Drane into the basement of the fort and walled him up alive. Although this story was never confirmed to be true two workmen supposedly discovered a skeleton shackled to the floor inside one of the walls while making repairs to the fort in 1905. Years later, Poe used this incident as inspiration for The Cask of Amontillado.
