The Orca Gas Station is a location just outside Milton in the Mountain Town region. The gas station lies on a junction outside of Milton, with one road leading up to Milton Park and the other leading past the Wood Lot to the Tunnel Collapse.
There are two doors into the building, which are locked in story mode and at least some survival mode difficulties (can be forced open with a Prybar).
Base of operations Edit
This could be a suitable base of operations in the area; even with the challenge of the constant threat of predators Mountain Town is notorious for, this location is comfortably away from wolf patrols that center around the middle of town.
Wintermute / Story mode Edit
The Grey Mother will suggest that Will Mackenzie raid the gas station for supplies, to which he objects in case any Milton residents might return to town in desperation after a failed attempt to find help. Although there is an implied moral dilemma, there is no penalty for taking supplies in the Episodes released as of May 2018. If the player does not raid gas station for this quest (it can be raided before or after the quest is active without acknowledgement in story mode), Grey Mother will say that she misjudged Will; if the player does steal supplies, she will say he "might have what is needed to survive this winter."
The gas station is also another prime example of the already dire situation of the people of Great Bear prior to the First Flare. Gas prices appear to have been exceptionally high, and eventually gasoline supplies had run out based on the prices on the sign being crossed out. Comments from characters and notes in the store and other buildings in town in story mode also suggest cash had run out and the island was in an especially severe economic crisis.
