For the prospector term used in the Fallout series of games, see prospector (term).

NCR prospectors are characters in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281.


This section is transcluded from Prospector (Fallout: New Vegas). To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

Prospectors specialize in searching for old pre-War technology and weapons to sell or use. They are not hostile towards the Courier unless they are provoked, and can be killed without gaining negative Karma. Their equipment is widely varied; they can be found wearing anything from wasteland outfits to a full suit of metal armor, and wielding anything from a 9mm pistol to a 10mm submachine gun.


The Prospector's Den - There will be two NCR prospectors inside the den, after the Jackals have been cleared, and a prospector merchant standing at the exterior of the shack.
