Marked men are hardened ghouls with a fiery red color, their skins peeled off by the violent storms of the Divide. Because of this, their skeletal muscles are exposed, giving them their red appearance. They are considered ghouls, in that the intense radiation of their surroundings is keeping them alive. To protect their new skin (or more likely, themselves), they continue to wear tattered clothing from their respective factions. They maintain their clothing from scavenged pieces of scrap, such as fallen road signs, license plates, and other bits of metal. In order to feed themselves, marked men have resorted to cannibalism, evident in the hunks of human meat and flesh found nearby their encampments.
Marked men level with the player, have a high amount of health for humanoid opponents, and are moderately protected by the tattered armor they wear (albeit far less than properly maintained regular versions of their armor). They are overall on par with the White Legs tribals of Zion Canyon, and the lobotomites of the Big MT, in terms of health and armor.
They carry a variety of powerful melee and ranged weapons, and at higher levels (above level 40) have the unique attribute of being the only faction that almost universally uses non-standard ammunition for their weapons (i.e. slugs and armor-piercing rounds), increasing their combat proficiency against well-protected targets. Additionally, many marked men make simultaneous use of both firearms and grenades. At times, they can be found using Stealth Boys, making them harder to detect.
When near sources of radiation, they regenerate health rapidly, even more so than ordinary ghouls. However, they tend to be few in numbers, and it is rare to find more than a dozen in any particular location, unless the player is a high level.
Marked men hunters appear to be former NCR troopers, equipped with powerful ranged weapons. They may carry guns like trail carbines, assault carbines, or sniper rifles at lower levels (level 1 to level 30), and anti-materiel rifles, brush guns, or Marksman carbines at higher levels (level 30 or above). For energy weapons, they may be seen carrying arc welders or tri-beam laser rifles.
Most of them are found wearing ruined NCR trooper armor (now known as the マークド・トルーパーアーマー), while some of them may be wearing Legion armor (called the マークド・スカウトアーマー).
Marked men maurauders are higher-ranking marked men that specialize in heavy weapons. They carry missile launchers and light machine guns at lower levels (below level 30), miniguns, heavy incinerators, Gatling lasers, and plasma casters at higher levels (above level 30), and shoulder mounted machine guns at all levels.
They wear either マークド・トライバルアーマー or marked patrol armor, suggesting that they are a mix of former NCR rangers and former high-ranking legionaries. As such, they are slightly better protected than lower-ranking marked men.

Marked men ravager
Marked men ravagers appear to be former Legionaries, and specialize in melee weapons. They often carry the Blade of the West, as well as fire axes and Shishkebabs at lower levels (below level 30). At higher levels (above level 30), they carry sledgehammers, super sledges, and thermic lances. They also carry and use incendiary grenades.
Most ravagers wear マークド・スカウトアーマー, and sometimes マークド・トルーパーアーマー.

deadSuper sledge, thermic lance (level > 30)
Marked men scout
Marked men scouts appear to be former Legionaries equipped with both firearms and frag grenades. They generally carry either pistols, one-handed submachine guns, or shotguns. They are equipped with flare guns and plasma defenders at all levels, and 12.7mm pistols, hunting shotguns, and hunting revolvers at lower levels (below level 30), as well as 12.7mm submachine guns and riot shotguns at higher levels (above level 30).
As their former ranks suggest, they usually wear マークド・スカウトアーマー. Some of them can be found wearing マークド・トルーパーアーマー.

Irradiated heavy trooper
Irradiated heavy troopers are the ghoulified remnants of NCR heavy troopers stationed at the Long 15 outpost. After the Courier launched the nuclear missiles from the Divide at the outpost, the radiation left behind turned them into ghouls, leaving them hostile to all others. They look like regular NCR heavy troopers with the added ability of regenerating health while irradiated.
Blister - a hardened former NCR ranger residing near the marked men base, carrying a flamer.
Beast - a marauder boasting crude pieces of Legate armor, found in a camp near the High Road entrance. He carries a shoulder mounted machine gun.
Bonesaw - a former legionary wearing a nearly intact Legate helmet, wielding a chainsaw. He can be found in a makeshift camp slightly southeast of the Ashton silo control station.
Blade - a former legionary who guards the entrance to Ulysses' Temple. He wields a Blade of the West, and is hidden by a Stealth Boy.
Gaius Magnus - a centurion located in Dry Wells.
Colonel Royez - a member of the NCRarmy stationed on Long 15.
The marked men that appear during the final battle will explode after being killed, with an explosive effect identical to that of a plasma grenade. This was done to prevent lag from too many corpses being in one area. It is still possible for it to lag by killing multiple marked men at close range with weapons like the shoulder mounted machine gun or frag grenades.
The Marked men are some of the few enemies in the game that will use special ammunition against the Courier.
If affiliated with the NCR, the player can comment to Ulysses that many of the marked men appear to be NCR special forces (more specifically, rangers or other special combat teams). A Legion affiliated player can do the same, noting that several marked men were Legion scouts, assassins or Frumentarii.
Former NCR marked men seem to have lost their dogtags.
Although female NCR troopers appear in abundance in the Mojave, there is no female variant of NCR marked men in The Divide or even the Long 15.
An additional, unused variant of the irradiated heavy trooper exists within the resources of Lonesome Road. Also called "irradiated heavy trooper", this version differs primarily in that it uses the default SPECIAL statistics for NCR troopers - 5 for all statistics. It also is equipped with a Minigun loaded with 5mm AP rounds, rather than the random weapon selection found in the standard version. Internally this version has the Editor ID NVDLC04NukeNCRColonel, indicating that this may have been an early stand-in for Colonel Royez.
pcps3xbox360 Marked men who carry Plasma Defenders are given the incorrect ammunition, microfusion cell, over charge rather than the correct energy cell, over charge. This renders them unable to use the weapon entirely.[verified]
