The Bloodborne cave is a location east of the Brotherhood of Steel safehouse and north-west of Bitter Springs. A large number of night stalkers and the legendary night stalker reside in the cave. It has a single interior section.
Known for the red-hued sandstone rocks flanking it, the cave lies in a sandstone range similar to Red Rock Canyon, and has many dangerous packs of wildlife surrounding the entrance.
Inside, there is a campfire near the entrance (left path, requires jumping down or clearing the cave) where the Courier can find a key. This key opens a Very Hard-locked gate (100 Lockpick without the key) further along on the North side of the cave. Behind the locked door lies a significant amount of loot. However, right beyond the gate is an easy-to-miss trip wire which triggers 3 grenade bouquets. This trap is especially deadly, as the grenades are set to drop throughout the tight corridor, and will likely kill everyone in the vicinity. Past the campfire is a grim assortment of skeletons, often accompanied by loot including weapons and ammunition. There are numerous mushrooms on the ground here, making the loot easy to spot.
- Once the Courier passes the locked gate, unless they were stirring things up inside, that is where they will come face to face with the legendary night stalker.
- There are a large amount of bottle caps, NCR dollars and Legion money in an Average locked trunk (50 Lockpick) which is behind a Very Hard locked gate. The amount can vary and is influenced by the Fortune Finder perk.
- A 12.7mm SMG in poor condition can be found behind the same Very Hard locked gate. Be aware of the tripwire behind the gate, which will set off rigged explosives.
- Key - On one of the campfire's cinder blocks. This key will unlock the aforementioned Very Hard locked gate. It will, however, not unlock the trunk.
- Pile of night stalker eggs - Quest item for Bleed Me Dry.
- Along with the legendary night stalker, there are roughly 11 other night stalkers in the cave.
- After 3 days, if the legendary night stalker is killed, up to 13 other night stalkers will re-spawn (3 x 100% chance, 6 x 75% chance, 4 x 50% chance, first random encounter). After another 4 days, if 3 night stalkers are killed (those having 100% chance of re-spawning), 6 cazadores will spawn (100% chance, second and last random encounter).
The Bloodborne cave appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
