There's a chance I could crash us all in to the middle of Lake Mead, that place seems to attract aircraft for some reason.

Daisy Whitman

Lake Mead is a lake that serves as the primary source of pure non-irradiated water to the Mojave Wasteland.

LayoutEdit

The lake bed is mostly sand and rocks with the odd bit of seaweed here and there. There are fish in the lake as well (although they cannot be interacted with). On the lake bed, a crashed B-29 airplane can be found, which the Courier is asked to bring up to the surface by the Boomers during the quest Volare!.

There is also an underwater cave southeast of the B-29, the Lake Mead cave (not to be confused with the Camp Guardian caves). Directly behind the plane lies a partially sunken ship resembling a tugboat, red in color, which has some gore bags coming out of a hole in the hull. Directly below this ship is the cave.

Past the invisible walls the lake is irradiated.

Notable lootEdit

NotesEdit

  • Lake Mead is a real lake about 30 miles from Las Vegas. Also, the Crashed B-29 is a reference to a real bomber that crashed into the lake during a training exercise on July 21, 1948.
  • The lake contains pure water, so drinking it will reset the H2O meter to 0 when Hardcore mode is activated.
  • Lakelurks can be found in abundance here on the scavengers platform, and around the beaches on both sides.
  • After completing the quest Volare! for the Boomers, Mr. New Vegas mentions sightings of a "Lake Mead Monster" in reference to the raised B-29.
  • The rebreather is useful for exploring deeper sections of the lake, however it is not required.
  • A scavenger platform floats in the middle of the lake and contains a Wasteland Survival Guide and a Sunset Sarsaparilla star bottle cap.
  • On the north shore, north-west of the scavenger platform, lies the Fisherman's Pride shack. Inside on the table to the left is another Sunset Sarsaparilla star bottle cap. On the night stand is a copy of Pugilism Illustrated.
  • There is a wreck near the east part of the lake, by the underwater entrance to Camp Guardian Caves, where a sunken boat, a half-buried body, and a lot of poker chips can be found, suggesting a gambler ran out of luck while out on the lake.
  • Just above entrance to Lake Mead cave there is a partially sunken ship. On the lake bed there are several gore bags beside the split hull, suggesting the bags came out of the ship (one of only two locations they are found).
  • Cass can be questioned if she knows what a fish looks like, which is described much like the fish in Lake Mead, by an intelligent Courier.
  • Also, Howard Hughes, on whom Robert House is based, crashed a Sikorsky S-43 at Lake Mead in 1943. Hughes then spent over $600,000 retrieving and restoring the aircraft.
  • Lupe sells bottles of purified water that she claims are from Lake Mead.

AppearancesEdit

Lake Mead appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
