Operation: Racket is an operation between Caesar's Legion and the Three Families around 2281.


During the Second Battle of Hoover Dam, the Omertas planned to stage a coup within the New Vegas Strip, plotting to run the other Strip proprietors out of the area. Caesar and Nero set up the operation together prior to the Second Battle of Hoover Dam so that Caesar could induce as much chaos as possible during his military campaign and Nero could gain full control over the Strip.

The plan was divided to several phases. Gomorrah had a reputation for being the most popular brothel in New Vegas, which tended to attract lonely NCR personnel looking for certain "company." Nero and Big Sal saw an opportunity to exploit this in part of Operation: Racket. Working in hand with the frumentarii, they blackmailed several NCR personnel to work for them. Clanden would also torture and rape some of the hookers, and sell his snuff tapes as a side income to sadists while using the dead hooker as the blackmail material to force certain high value targets to work for them as either smugglers or foot soldiers while the frumentarii would take care of the monorail which served as a source of rapidly deploying NCR infantry in the event of an attack. The Omertas were at their final touches of their plan when the Courier had arrived.

No matter who won the Second Battle of Hoover Dam, the White Glove Society, Chairmen, and securitrons were able to destroy the Omertas.


Operation: Racket is mentioned in Fallout: New Vegas, during the Second Battle of Hoover Dam.
