There’s no secret hiding at the bottom of the Fallout 4 ocean

2 min read


Under the sea! Down where it’s wetter that’s it where it’s better, under the sea! Up on the Boston shore they murder all day, out in the sun the slaves toil away! While we’re radaway injectin’ some corpses that are floatin’! Under the sea!

Fallout 4 may have a lot of secrets, but it has even more land to explore. When you combine the two, you get plenty of Easter eggs and enough bait to attract people with a lot of time to kill. And that’s where the waters of Fallout 4 come into play. There’s a lot of puddles out there, some of them deep enough to drive a precious scooter named Sasha into even.

Surely, there must be a secret or two inside of the deep embrace of those rivers, right? Nope. Turns out, there’s nothing. That’s according to the research of Redditor Lavonicus, who dived deep into the Boston waters to find…something. And the life aquatic was chronicled in a massive 113-image album, where a few interesting things were found, but none of them were massive mysteries waiting to be solved.

“This album is the result of 30+ hours of exploring the water depths of Fallout 4. I say 100ish% because I don’t believe in perfection, just darn close to it,” Lavonicus wrote.

From the smallest of puddles to the depths of the ocean floor. If it is a ton of loot you are looking for you will not find it here. There is some loot to be found but a colossal amount like you may wish. There are various red and green chest in water along with various other items. I will try to upload these images in an organized fashion. Keeping in mind that for whatever reason they became scrambled after I transferred them.

The first map will have nothing but red circles. This map is for people who want to go and find whatever it is for themselves. It may be loot, a Easter Egg to Jaws (There are three of those in the game btw, the same one) interesting points of interest or a potential under water area in a future DLC. The Second map will have a better color coding system for what is what for those that just want to go for items and not other things.

What will follow will start with various screen grabs of what lies under the water to the infamous pipes along with a “New” Sphere with writing on it at the very end. Thank you for coming, thank you for viewing. I hope you will find some use of this and that I ultimately didn’t waste time doing this.

I’ve been diving into the waters of Fallout 4 myself. And I find that the Boston rivers are almost as overrated as the game itself.

  1. It is a tiresome and ultimately lonely experience playing Fallout 4 vs virtually any other open world game (esp when incl Bethesda’s previous titles). It also suffers from the gamebreaking carry limits imo but hey… I just finished Heart of the Swarm again and I’m about to embark on Legacy of the Void so I’m sorted.

      It really isn’t as bad as you think it is. Try it and see without judging it first

        Over 30hrs in and it’s exactly how I described it. I was a fan of Fallout 3 but and although Fallout 4 is prettier it has no soul. My opinion.

          I, with my 10 hours in, do not agree. I like the settlements, as it means I can make a REAL difference for some of the people of the wasteland, unlike in fallout 3, where I felt a bit nerfed in what I did.

            With my 95 hours in I also don’t think that the carry limit is game breaking. Or at least I don’t understand how it would be game breaking.
            Though, I will say that Fallout 3 felt more barren, more wasteland-like, and New Vegas had some interesting characters and moments.
            Though Valentine is pretty awesome by himself…maybe partly so because I love Skyrim so much and his voice brings back good memories.

            It’s all the backwards and forwards dropping off loot, it’s too time consuming, imo of course.

            Agreed, but lats night I got my supply lines working right. Now I can drop in the nearest workbench and have it available at all settlements. I now nitpick the items I take as I really don’t need more steel and wood ex.

            Then I need to look at the supply lines option, thx

            Also, equip the settlers that you use for the supply lines with decent guns and ammo, because you will have so many of them travelling you run into them all the time. As soon as there is danger, these guys help out with any form of danger.

            good tips, thanks. Supply train AND arming the buggers. Hope it does not start to feel like a chore, but so far it looks ok.

            Just a bit fiddly trying to build a house or something, cause I cannot see behind the placement.

            It’s alright. I put Preston in a power armour 😀 So that’s fun.

            It’s only in the start though. Once those supply lines are all handled then you’ve got an entire network of resources across the entire map

            The settlements feel a bit forced to me and even though I spend a bit of time getting them sorted I only provide the bare basics as I get tired of the huge amount of scrounging you have to do in this title.

            yes, point. But I still like the idea of settlements, new to Fallout. It is a real difference that can be made and, true to modern gaming, a difference that we can influence in many ways. Clever.

            Yes, point. Fetch and carry, fetch and carry. My strength is 2, so I get that a lot.

          You can remove the weight limit with a console command or a mod

          – haven’t tried it, don’t want to do it, because roleplaying as the rebuilder of this once shitty environment into another shitty environment is what I enjoy 🙂

    There’ll be some kind of DLC that brings the underwater element in. There’s too much down there for it to be wasted space.

    I read that as overradiated

      You’re overradiated! And what does Darryn know, Fallout 4 doesn’t have enough pokemon or Naturo to keep him interested 😛

    Those graphics made my eyes bled. Will pick this up when mods become available for consoles. Maybe they can bump the graphics a tad…
