No, opposite of that. It's where my tribe was taken. Where another history was put to the blade, lesson taught. It is where we realized Vulpes did not approach us as equals. Where we realized the wolf had come, and we watched our history die. Now it belongs to Legion... and all the death there now belongs to them as well. Not revenge... just the way of things when you own them.

Dry Wells is a tribal camp lying south along the Colorado River, from Cottonwood Cove in Arizona. It is currently occupied by Caesar's Legion.

It will only be accessible to the player character after completing the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road, by aiming nuclear weapons at Legion territory.

BackgroundEdit

Once the main camp of the Twisted Hairs tribe, Dry Wells was taken over as Vulpes Inculta betrayed the Twisted Hairs and assimilated them into Caesar's Legion.

LayoutEdit

Dry Wells consists of several burned tents and crumbling buildings along a road from an irradiated stretch of the river, ending in a large crater. Attempting to enter the crater will cause instant death. Several burned tents are also scattered about the area, along with numerous ammunition boxes and weapons crates. The entire camp is filled with irradiated Legionaries and irradiated Legion explorers, along with their Centurion, Gaius Magnus.

Notable lootEdit

NotesEdit

  • Unlike nearly every other location introduced through add-ons, companions can travel to Dry Wells and the Long 15 due to Dry Wells being inside the Mojave, rather than an entirely new area (i.e., Big MT, Zion National Park, etc.)
  • Some Legion explorers may be using Stealth Boys upon entering the area.
  • Due to the high level of radiation, irradiated Legionaries regenerate health very quickly.
  • Just south of the boat you arrive in are a couple of crates behind an overturned boat which spawn random loot.
  • Killing any irradiated Legion troops will yield Legion infamy. This makes it difficult to obtain the Armor of the 87th Tribe while remaining on good terms with the Legion.
  • Approaching the edge of the blast crater (the far end of the site when fast-traveling there) will result in a radiation level of up to 35 rads/sec, as opposed to 20/sec max in the Long 15. Jumping into the crater in either location will result in a massive spike in this rad rate. Additionally, the amount of radiation increases exponentially as the player character approaches the crater in Dry Wells, as opposed to a more linear increase in the Long 15. This reaches a maximum at 250 rads/sec in the dead center of the crater, killing in 4 seconds without any protection.
  • A black outline of a person who was vaporized by the nuke can be found on the back of the furthest building facing the crater.
  • Trying to swim upstream will bring up the message, "You can't swim any further in this direction," and the player character will hit an invisible wall.

AppearancesEdit

Dry Wells appears only in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on, Lonesome Road.
