The Cottonwood crater is an atomic bomb impact point in the Mojave Wasteland that is highly irradiated.

LayoutEdit

This location is reached either by repeatedly jumping up and running along the cliff or via a cave exit from the Fire Root cavern. Follow the small peninsula until it ends and look to the left.

This area overlooks Cottonwood Cove from the southern mountains and contains a few highly radioactive pools (up to 20 rads a second). There are likely to be some golden geckos. Searching this area will disclose the remains of a dead prospector with a Fat Man in poor condition.

Notable lootEdit

  • A Fat Man can be found on a dead prospector.

NotesEdit

The crater is one of the few atomic impact sites found in the Mojave Wasteland. While 77 ICBMs were launched at Las Vegas and the surrounding area, 59 were forcefully disarmed mid-flight by intricate defense systems set in place by wealthy businessman Mr. House, nine were blasted out of the sky by a laser guided missile defense system atop the Lucky 38 Hotel & Casino, and only nine hit the surrounding desert.

AppearancesEdit

Cottonwood crater appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
