- "So this is the uh, this is the base here. This is the outside of the base. ...Inside's on the inside... go through that door, right there, get to the inside. Um, there's a ramp over here, there's another one on the other side. It's kinda smaller, does the same thing though. Uh, it's got a basement, ...nuhm, there's a middle part 'n' there's a top part... got some, you know blue flags here, on the outside, come in handy when you're, you know, tryin' to identify the colour of the base, it's blue. Anyway, that uh pretty much covers the base, so... anyway, yeah, that's it."

Outpost 1-A: Blood Gulch, also known as Blood Gulch Outpost: Alpha, is the Blue Base located in the Blood Gulch canyon and is one of two primary bases depicted in The Blood Gulch Chronicles. Outpost 1-A is where the Blues traditionally congregate and (pretend to) engage in battle against the Red Team.
Overview[edit | edit source]
The Blue Base has only been referred to as Outpost 1-A by Recovery One, a representative of Command. Blue Team and their conversations with Command know it as Blood Gulch Outpost Alpha. The Blues know it as "Outpost: Alpha," which coincidentally or not, is also the name of Church's real identity. Besides being used as the former quarters of Blue Team, this base is unofficially used for throwing raves by Sister after all other members of the Blue team were transferred out, prior to the start of Reconstruction. Eventually, she also began throwing conventions and other events within the canyon after Sarge and Lopez had departed the Red Base.
Relation to Other Bases[edit | edit source]
The Red Base depicted in the trailer of Red vs Blue: Reconstruction is called Outpost 17-B. This makes it so that "A" designates a Blue Base and "B" designates a Red Base, since Washington arrives at Blue Base and calls it "1-A."
