...And Not a drop to Drink is a challenge in Fallout: New Vegas.

Challenge requirements

The Courier must drink 100 water items.


Grants 100 XP and the Camel of the Mojave perk upon completion.


  • If one has the Classic Pack, the Vault 13 canteen will contribute to this perk/challenge on casual mode and, on the PC and Xbox versions, hardcore mode.
  • You can also contribute to this challenge by traveling to Camp Searchlight, it seems that the green screen effect is caused by a drink your character automatically takes when in proximity to Searchlight.
  • Drinking from a water source, such as a sink or a lake will not count towards this challenge.
  • This challenge is not repeatable.

Behind the scenes

The name of this challenge is based on a verse from the poem, "Rime of the Ancient Mariner," written by Samuel Taylor Coleridge:

"Water, water, everywhere,
and all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, everywhere,
nor any drop to drink."
