The 80s are known for raiding frontier towns for supplies and kidnapping people. They are rightly feared for their ability to cover large areas of land with very few men. They have recently spread out over a larger area, notably the I-80, due to the collapse of the Nevada Desert Rangers and NCR's inability to patrol or keep tabs on the territory.
If the Courier crushes the White Legs, but spares Salt-Upon-Wounds, the 80s eventually capture the Great Salt Lake from the weakened White Legs. Likewise, if the Courier kills Salt-Upon-Wounds themselves, the 80s wipe out the remaining White Legs. In either case, this expansion does not come without a price, as the remaining tribes of Zion unite against the 80s and drive them away from Highway 50.
Stella mentions that in the past, a group of the raiders abducted and killed two working girls from Caliente. She says that if the 80s wanted her and her town members dead, they would have killed them, and guesses that the raiders didn't think they were worth the trouble.

The 80s are a tribe of raiders that operates along the northern California 80 freeway, mostly in the region northeast of the lawless, uncontrolled city of Sacramento. They are easily recognized by the "80" signs they wear strapped across their chests. High-ranking members usually have the Interstate 80 red and blue signs, while lower-ranking members wear green Highway 80 signs, and the ordinary grunts make do with what is leftover. The 80s are known for their tireless pursuit of enemies and for their occasional use of motorcycles.
