Old nuclear test site
I'm so done being confined in this human body. So, today I moved in to the shack at the abandoned test site. There should be enough radiation there to turn me into a ghoul. All around me this world is bleak and dreadful; is it so wrong to want a body to match it?”— Trash
Although the site is mostly fenced off and inaccessible, the nuclear test shack in the compound can be entered. On a nearby hill to the northwest is a sandbagged observation area with chairs and five pairs of authority glasses.
- The two rescued Powder Gangers from the quest Booted will travel here and come to a stop at the area just in front of the nuclear test shack, where they will most likely be killed by the many high-level feral ghouls. If the ghouls are cleared out beforehand, the two prisoners will stand around in the area until the ghouls respawn.
- The center of radiation is not the crater, but is located closer to the shack.
- Arcade Gannon will have some comments about the site when first brought to the area.
The old nuclear test site appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
