The ant mound is a location in the Mojave Wasteland, located south of the Allied Technologies Offices and Camp McCarran, or north-west of REPCONN Headquarters. It consists of a single section cave inhabited by fire ants.



An old, dilapidated farm has been taken over by fire ants. They have killed the two brahmin in their corral and likely the inhabitants of the farm itself. The ant mound is hidden in the barn. In or near the barn 5-7 fire ants are present. Up the stairs inside the barn, there are two metal boxes, a footlocker, two toolboxes, a grenade box and an ammunition box. Straight north of the barn, there is an abandoned warehouse, which is unmarked on your Pip-Boy map, and is entered during the concluding part of the quest Birds of a Feather given by Gloria Van Graff.

Ant mound

Inside the mound is a small network of tunnels with a few fire ants, a fire ant queen and a few dead wasteland settlers. Sometimes, ant queen pheromones can be found on a dead queen.


  • There is ant nectar in the ant refuse piles around the barn.
  • There are two wastelanders near the queen that could be the previous owners.


The ant mound only appears in Fallout: New Vegas.
