Bonnie Springs is a location in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281, located almost due north of the Goodsprings Cemetery, northeast of the tribal village and southeast of Spring Mt. Ranch State Park.


In 2281, this ghost town is crumbling into the dirt, its memory and true history slowly fading. However, it is still used as a landmark for travelers and is occasionally picked over, the latest of who are a gang of Vipers.[Non-canon 1]


Bonnie Springs is an abandoned ghost town along Nevada 159. It features a single main street leading to a boarded-up saloon, flanked by destroyed and otherwise derelict buildings. A grave is located on the nearby hill to the west of town. The town is occupied by well-armed Vipers, four regular Vipers, and two leaders equipped with plasma grenades and a trail carbine respectively. Once killed, the area will be taken over by cazadores on return visits. Wiping out the cazadores can lead to a blind deathclaw spawning here.

Notable loot


  • Once killed, the Viper gang members will not respawn.
  • If both Viper gang leaders have been killed, the town will be taken over by cazadores once four in-game days have passed. Any remaining Viper gang members will be killed automatically. Cazador nests will appear in many of the abandoned houses.
  • The clouds above are sometimes green, similar to Camp Searchlight's cloud cover, except there is no substantial radiation in the area.
  • Very rarely, a deathclaw appears here and will kill the entire residing Viper gang.


Bonnie Springs appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenes

  • Both the Vipers' presence and the subsequent cazador takeover were originally meant to occur at Mountain Shadows campground and with larger numbers of both cazadores and Vipers, but were moved due to console limitations.

    Slowly fading from memory and crumbling into the dirt is the old mining ghost town of Bonnie Springs. Use this location as a landmark. The ghost town itself is being ransacked by around six Viper Gang members with two Leaders. Be sure to loot a Unique set of Spiked Knuckles from the one who tries to hand-to-hand combat with you.
