Saxham Outpost is an abandoned village in Final Fantasy XV whose story can be pieced together from the datalog, bestiary and Oric's Culinary Chronicles. The player can visit the site to find the datalog entry and the abandoned buildings. The area is still used for farming as the player can buy Saxham Rice from Lestallum, and its fishing hole, Saxham Reservoir, is notorious for how hard it is to catch fish there, as they only ever bite for specific lures.

- Small hamlet founded founded by settlers from Lestallum hoping to develop new plots of land for farming. While the name chosen by the pioneers remains, the people are long gone: at present, the outpost is a ghost town.
- At the time of its establishment, Saxham was a prosperous plot of land with nary a problem in sight. The soil was fertile, the climate was favorable, and common pests were nowhere to be found. The relative lack of sunlight, however, would ultimately prove the outpost's undoing.
- After a pack of daemons assaulted the camp, it became clear to the residents that little could be done to defend their home, and many left at once. To this day, hunters often reflect on the now-infamous "Saxham incident" as a failure they should strive to never let happen again. Recent reports claiming one of the surviving children was kidnapped by daemons, however, suggest the tragedy of the outpost continues.
Saxham was established by settlers from Lestallum as a farming community. Seventeen years ago a dozen bussemand stormed the outpost killing countless adults and kidnapping their children. Many parents went off in search of the lost boys and girls, leaving a ghost town in their wake. Hunters would try to safeguard the town, and a hunter called Oric was stationed there a while, but wrote in his memoirs that people were abandoning it. Headquarters told Oric he can also abandon the town, but he decided to stay and make it his home. He had a family, and in his final entry planned to take them to Leide, but still had "few bussemands to bust up before dawn."
The "Saxham incident" is one of two known cases of daemons kidnapping children, the other being the serpent that resides in the Fociaugh Hollow. The serpent is implied to be a daemonified woman who was looking for her child when she turned. Thus, the daemons who haunt Saxham may also be daemonified former residents. Whether the children were truly kidnapped, or turned into daemons and were believed to have been kidnapped, is unknown; daemons are not witnessed taking captors, but rumors of them having taken children away persist.
- Eos Green Peas (field)
- Chobham Armor (rain cover; jump onto the roof with a chocobo or stand under the treasure by climbing onto the boxes)
There are stone arches nearby that have items on top of them: Mythril Ingot.
