A Legion ear is a quest item in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Every Legion soldier, with the exception of legionary assassins, have a chance of having this on his corpse. They are used in the unmarked quest An Ear to the Ground. Private Sexton at Camp Forlorn Hope is organizing a competition to collect them and will reward the Courier for bringing them to him.

The ears will only be in the victim's inventory upon death, unlike the NCR dogtags. The ears have no other actual uses outside of this quest, although they are weightless if the player character would like to "collect" them.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Anywhere Legion members are found, it is possible to acquire their ears to collect and give back to Private Sexton.

An example of this happening is inside the houses of Nipton, on the bodies of a few dead Legion Troops. [verified]
