The Legate's Camp is a location in the Mojave Wasteland, located east of Hoover Dam. It is surrounded by cliffs and mountains on all sides and is inaccessible for the majority of the game. The only way to enter the camp without using exploits is during the final leg of the main quest. Other than that, the camp remains inaccessible.
At the entrance of the camp there are a few Praetorian guards. One is standing directly in front of the hill and two are in the small encampment to the left. On the right side of the entrance to the camp there is a cage with Legion mongrels. The cage door can be sabotaged so it won't open, but the dogs inside can still be attacked. There are several Prime Legionaries armed with marksman carbines and power fists throughout the camp.
Up the hill, you will see Legate Lanius. Approaching him will initiate conversation. On top of the hill stands the Legate's War Tent. As the tent is locked from the inside, (which is quite odd considering it's a tent), there is no normal means of entry. Inside the tent, during the Veni, Vidi, Vici quest, you will find him with a Praetorian Guard on the right and a slave sitting on the left. The Legate is torturing and mutilating NCR prisoners, as you can see from the bodies on the table and floor.
- A single piece of yao guai meat can be found in the Legate's war tent which is briefly accessible during the Veni, Vidi, Vici quest.
The Legate's camp appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
- pc Pathfinding when Oliver and the rangers blow down the door to the Legate's camp (and when any Securitrons show up after) is bad and causes everyone to get stuck outside the camp. [verified]
