Can't find dogmeat?

  1. After finishing the raven rock mission i went to the scrapyard to find the dog but only found the three raiders, is there a time limit that you have to find him, i also dismissed fawkes to see if that would help but there wasn't any change in the outcome when i went to the scrapyard

  1. Dogmeat always goes back to Vault 101 after you have found him.

  1. there is no time limit. Either he is there and you simply missed him or its a spawning glitch. Sorry.

  2. He is in the scrapyard....look in corners not in the very middle of the place and you might have to go around cars and stuff because they can block his way from getting to you

  3. He is in the scrapyard. if you cant hear him barking near the eastern side then yea it is probably a spawning glitch or he could have died

  4. You'll find him in the scrapyard area in the northeastern part of the CW. You'll most likely find it when you're looking for Canterbury Commons. But be careful. Unlike other chars you can recruit later, Dogmeat can die pretty easily.

  5. Well, to start look all around in the Scrapyard and keep a lookout on your compass to find someone friendly and follow it. Then set up a perimeter and look outside of the scrapyard and keep a lookout. If that doesn't work, and if you've got multiple saves before you went to Raven Rock, try and load one up and immediatley search for him. Possibly look around vault 101's entrance too. But if you cant find him, it is highly possible that it is a spawning glitch. Dogmeat also holds a reserved follower spot too, so dismissing shouldn't matter.

  6. Its weird i was fighting raiders at bethesda ruins and all of a sudden dogmeat showed up and started helping me kill them. and yeah dogmeat can join you even if you have another follower. I sooooo wish there was no follower limit cuz then i could build the ultimate wasteland army!

  8. I didnt get him at scrap yard, i havent even discovered scrap yard, all i did to get him was when i went into lucas simms' (rest in piece) house i just waited and waited for hours (game time) for harden simms to see if the house had a safe, like billy creels when you talk to maggie with child at heart, and after waiting i saw a dog and aimed at it and saw its name 'dogmeat', it might just be a glitch but it worked for me

  9. you get dogmeat in the scrapyard (eight blocks from the top and six blocks from the right in the top right of that block) just north of Bethesda Ruins by 3 blocks, in the scrapyard he's to the east of the middle building behind some cars by a red train car if you can't find him there use the wait function and he'll eventually show up

    Theres also johns treasure box with three skill books in it to the northwest between a red train car (left) and a puddle of radiation (right) inside of a burned out bus (middle) in an ammo box with a hard lock I believe unless you've got johns key (mini encounter)

  10. Try outside of Vault 101. That was where Dogmeat was waiting for me after Raven Rock and The Pitt.

  11. If the player reaches the Scrapyard and does not enter it, or somehow manages to pass by and trigger the event without speaking to Dogmeat, it is still possible to encounter him later in a random encounter.

  12. Dogmeat was said to be found in a random encounter, which would appear in different places depending on where the player ventures to, but was meant to appear early on to help develop your bond with the dog. This was scrapped and in the released game, Dogmeat is found in a fixed location all the time, the Scrapyard, south of Minefield. He is found attacking and killing several raiders, but approaches the player peacefully and will join him if asked.

    If the player reaches the Scrapyard and does not enter it, or somehow manages to pass by and trigger the event without speaking to Dogmeat, it is still possible to encounter him later in a random encounter. He will sometimes come to your aid when you are facing overwhelming odds, such as a larger group of Talon Company Mercs in the wasteland. If during your travels you see the words "Dogmeat is unconscious" appear at the top of the screen, it means he is nearby somewhere and is likely being attacked. Dogmeat cannot die before you have recruited him.

    Shooting Dogmeat in the initial encounter without talking to him can make it impossible for the player to recruit him. He will appear outside Vault 101, but cannot be engaged in dialogue.

    All of the information above was from .. .. Copy and paste into your URL its a complete guide for fallout 3 xD

  16. If he's not in the Scrapyard he'll eventually come to you through a random encounter. :)

  17. He's at Vault 101.

    Also, get the Puppies! perk as soon as it becomes available. That way, if Dogmeat gets killed, one of his puppies will spawn at Vault 101 for you to have as a follower.
