You Can Go Off The Map In Fallout 4 And This Is What You Find

Fallout 4 Off The Map
You can go outside the visible map area in Fallout 4 and not in a buggy or glitchy type way. What is there to find? Epic Easter Eggs? Awesome gear? Well, it’s not that exciting but it’s a cool area nonetheless.

As shown in the screenshot above you can travel to the very South Western corner of the game world and go outside the boundary that usually represents the edge of the play area. However, done here you don’t get the message saying “You can’t go that way”, instead a small area opens at your feet. As an avid explorer I was eager to see what I could find…

A rather impressive globe-like metallic structure

It may have a more nostalgic effect for experienced Fallout players. Having missed most of the previous games I couldn’t be sure if this location played a part. I’ve searched high and low for anything in the area but come up short. Feel free to share your experiences if you’ve been brave enough to wander outside the realm of possibility!

    Unfortunately, in many other places the you’re cut off and unable to proceed to the border in a lot of other places.. so the map is actually smaller than the borders.
