We know Primm is a great strategic point, and we aren't blind to the needs of the town, but we're barely holding our own against the Powder Gangers.

Lieutenant Hayes is a lieutenant of the New California Republic Army, 5th Battalion, 1st Company. He has been charged with the containment of the Powder Gangers, who have taken control of the NCR Correctional Facility (NCRCF).


He is located in Primm, on the opposite side of the bridge from the fast travel point. After retaking the NCRCF from the Powder Gangers, he will relocate to Camp Forlorn Hope, where he will stand by the campfire opposite the supply shack. He can usually be found in his tent.

  • After taking care of Eddie and the Powder Gangers at the NCRCF, Hayes will travel to Camp Forlorn Hope. However, he will sometimes be seen by the facility, likely en route to the camp.
  • Hayes was originally scripted as a Corporal in the same town, instead of Lieutenant, as suggested by his GECK Editor ID (PrimmCorporalHayes).

Notable quotesEdit

  • "We know Primm is a great strategic point, and we aren't blind to the needs of the town, but we're barely holding our own against the Powder Gangers."
  • "Where do you come from that you haven't heard of the NCR? Nevermind, it doesn't matter much. If you haven't heard of us, you must not be from the Legion. Put simply, the NCR is the greatest nation currently functioning."
  • "A little bit ago the convicts staged a coup, killed the guards that weren't able to escape, and have been ransacking the area since then."


Lieutenant Hayes appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
