I know those Legion bastards are tough but my friends won't last long with all the radiation in there.”— Private Renolds on Techatticup mine
Also known colloquially in the past as Knob Hill Mine, this hole in the ground is at the turnaround at the end of the road from Nelson, and seems to have been a dumping ground, or storage area for radioactive waste that the Legion now occasionally utilizes.
After a short winding path from the entrance, there is a small chamber with Legion troops, and paths leading left and right. To the left is a larger chamber with more Legion troops and Alexus, the Legion leader, who has a key to the gates leading to the NCR prisoners.
To the right is a short path to another small chamber with four Legion troops and two locked gates leading to two storage areas, each containing a tied-up prisoner and some loot. When heading east, you can go down a cliff to find a group of eight Caesar's Legion members. The bottom of the mine seems to be highly irradiated.
- There is a hollowed-out rock directly to the right of the mine's entrance, the rock is marked with 2 white rectangles.
- Directly southeast of the mine is the deathclaw promontory (across the Colorado River through the space in between the rocks).
The Techatticup mine appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Techatticup Mine is based on the Eldorado Canyon Mine to the east of Nelson, and is named after the nearby Techatticup Cove on the Colorado river.
