Freeside's north gate is run-down and is simply guarded by a handful of Kings members. The roads leading out are cracked and broken. The location is a high-traffic area for barter and commerce, and it's not surprising to see many traveling merchants around the area selling their supplies. Both the Gun Runners and the Crimson Caravan Company reside in the vicinity, boasting a large selection of guns, ammunition, and armor of various kinds, making this particular loop a lucrative trade circuit for any aspiring merchants.
Freeside's north gate appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
