Weapons, apparel and aid items are all useful to the player in one way or another. Miscellaneous items, on the other hand, range from extremely useful to completely useless. This table aims to provide a list of all the miscellaneous items in Fallout: New Vegas that have at least one use as a reference for which junk to carry and which junk not to pick up in the first place.

Obviously useful items like bobby pins, currency and drained energy cells are excluded from this list.

Some of this junk can't be used without various add-ons installed and/or certain quests completed.
