|« Yeah, I’m an ugly mutant. I also run this place. You got a problem with that ? »
- Marcus, town's sheriff.
After The Master's death, a supermutant named Marcus was wandered aimlessly through the wasteland. He met Jacob, a power-armoured Brotherhood of Steel knight that had sworn to kill all mutants. They fought for a day or two, then became friends, as neither of them were able to kill the other. Wandering together, they attracted a bunch of refugees from the war, and ghouls who had escaped the Necropolis slaughter. They eventually founded Broken Hills, a settlement where every race could live in peace and work the uranium mine there.
As Broken Hills is a bit far from usual routes, players don't really go there ; there are also not many things of interest in town. Eventually the city became a battlefield for all the players that like to fight, since they are able to seize the town control there, but also to flee in the streets and take out large groups of players, if they are skilled enough.
