Camp McCarran is the headquarters for the NCR military in this region. It occupies the old airport next to New Vegas.

Camp McCarran is a location in the Mojave Desert which serves as a major New California Republic (NCR) military base in the Mojave Wasteland. It is considered only a close second to Hoover Dam in its strategic importance. It is located south of The Strip North Gate and southwest from NCR Sharecropper Farms.


BackgroundEdit

It is located in the pre-War McCarran International Airport outside of New Vegas. Camp McCarran is the largest New California Republic base in the New Vegas area and serves as the headquarters for NCR military operations in the Mojave region. The site was chosen because of the monorail to the Strip, for being an easily defensible location, and having easily utilized technology as well as fortifications that were built before the Great War. Mr. House agreed that NCR could establish a major military presence there under the New Vegas treaty. The camp has several companies of soldiers stationed there, and covers the most area of all other NCR military installations. Major problems that commanders at Camp McCarran are currently suffering from include frequent attacks from the band of raiders known as the Fiends, as well as regularly having to uncover legion spies that may have infiltrated the base.

LayoutEdit

The airport is mostly intact, having only suffered damage from lack of repair. The NCR has converted several of the guard posts into sniper nests, and the parking lot in the center into a barracks with sleeping, medical, supply storage, office, mess hall and recreation tents set up as well as firing ranges. Near the cargo terminal gates is a truck repair depot.

There are also several NCR supply trucks parked around the barracks tents and passenger airplanes near the control tower. The tents closest to the camp entrance are occupied by the NCR 1st Recon, while the rest of the tents are used by regular NCR soldiers. Some beds, such as those used by 1st Recon, may be used by the Courier without penalty.

There's usually an NCR trooper or Ranger standing outside the camp's entrance if you have enough positive reputation to use the NCR emergency radio. Speaking to the trooper or Ranger will cause him/her to say "Trooper, ready to fight!" or "Ranger at the Ready!" and become part of the party; if they die, a message is displayed on the screen, informing that they have died.

Camp McCarran terminal buildingEdit

The Camp McCarran terminal building is very large, housing a science lab, an interrogation room, jail, and supply rooms as well as quarters and office space for senior NCR officers.

NotesEdit

  • The airport's runway is located south of the terminal, just behind the wall. This indicates that before the Great War that the airport was converted into some form of military base.
  • At the top of the broken down escalators on the East side of the terminal building, to the Courier's left is a corridor containing two NCR troopers guarding a door that leads to the Monorail. They will become hostile and attack if the player has less than "liked", and attempts to enter. Wearing NCR faction armor, or bringing Craig Boone allows the player to enter without any trouble.
  • The Courier can access the Strip by taking the monorail, soldiers won't be guarding it around 9:00 AM/PM, or access the Strip wearing NCR faction armor and going by them. The Courier can also go on the monorail if he/she has a high enough reputation with the NCR.
  • The garbage can by the baggage check-in station on the first floor within the terminal building cannot be searched.

AppearancesEdit

Camp McCarran appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • McCarran International Airport was originally called Alamo Airport when it was constructed in 1942.
  • On December 20, 1948 the airport was renamed McCarran Field, after Pat McCarran, a U.S. Senator, who was native to Nevada, and authored the Civil Aeronautics Act.
  • The aircraft around the terminal have folding wings. This is unusual, as normally only Navy carrier qualified aircraft have this feature, to save space on deck.

BugsEdit

  • pcIcon pc ps3Icon ps3 xbox360Icon xbox360 For some reason, sometimes your companion may not follow you to the main area of the Camp, even if you didn't tell them to wait. To fix, just enter the terminal building, fast travel, or exit the camp.[verified]
  • xbox360Icon xbox360 Game corrupts save while saving at Camp McCarran, during the quest to kill Motor-Runner. Saving in front of it can corrupt saves and the same rule applies to any other save file made after the ones in the Camp.[verified]
  • pcIcon pc ps3Icon ps3 NCR Troopers sometimes perform as though they are typing on a typewriter/computer (including typing sound effects) while seated in the dining tent, even though there is no keyboard present, since the tables have been given the wrong "idle marker".[verified]
  • xbox360Icon xbox360 If you acquire Corporal White's journal in Corporal White's locker in the Camp McCarran Concourse before receiving the optional task "search Corporal White's personal locker" in The White Wash, the quest cannot be completed. This might lead to a save game issue where the loading screen dialog tells you that the memory device is no longer present due to inaccessible DLC objects. The game will then restart upon loading dialog confirmation. This repeats with the next loading attempt, rendering the save game useless.[verified]
  • xbox360Icon xbox360 Sometimes when you enter the main terminal building all NCR troopers will become hostile if you are detected.[verified]
  • ps3Icon ps3 pcIcon pc After playing the game for a long time (at least an hour consecutively), Camp McCarran may cause extreme framerate drop. This happens in both the outside area and within the concourse. Quitting the game and restarting should fix the problem.[verified]
  • xbox360Icon xbox360 On occasion, when moving to the second floor of the terminal building, NCR troopers can become hostile. This also sometimes happens when exiting Camp McCarran. A quick fast-travel to another location and back is an easy fix.
