Squatters are destitute NCR civilians taking refuge in Freeside in 2281.


Many of the poorer citizens of the NCR were drawn to New Vegas in the false hopes of seeking their fortunes, however they instead found themselves involved in a violent war between the Kings and the NCR. The unlucky souls living in the grisly streets of Freeside are the subjects of aggressive locals and thugs dwelling in the dark alleyways of town. The situation is worsened by the local Followers of the Apocalypse chapter's inability to care for them and the lack of food promised by the local soup kitchen established by the NCR Army Supply Corps.

G.I. Blues


  • G.I. Blues - Multiple squatters can be found in the ruined store, being supplied food by the NCR's Supply Corps. They give generic dialogue when spoken to, and play no major role in the quest.
  • If the Courier decides to enter The Strip by going through Freeside, a squatter can be seen attempting to run past the securitons to enter The Strip, but he will be mowed down by the guards. This serves as a warning to not attempt trespassing.



Squatters are considered a part of the NCR faction, and killing them will give the player NCR infamy.


NCR Squatters appear only in Fallout: New Vegas.
