The camp is guarded by one to three Powder Gangers. It is also surrounded by several powder charges. The trailers contain a bed and some boxes of loot, that may be locked and coded as being owned. A plank has been placed beside a trailer for an easy entrance to the camp, albeit not being very useful as powder charges must be disarmed to enter this way.
On approaching the location for the first time, it is possible to witness a very large explosion and find the remains of the Powder Gangers scattered around the area. This may be due to wildlife setting off some of the powder charges surrounding the camp and triggering a chain reaction explosion from the adjacent vehicles on the road.
The Powder Ganger camp west appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
