Yeah, a bunch of those Legion fucks dragged them off right away. They were headed east, if you're feeling heroic.Boxcars

The Legion raid camp is a location serving as one of Caesar's Legion's forward assault camps in 2281. It is located northeast of Wolfhorn ranch, midway between Walking Box Cavern and broc flower cave.


While many of the Legion responsible for the razing of Nipton headed back to Cottonwood Cove, a few remained to pillage the area and take prisoners.


The camp consists of two levels created by the natural landmasses. There is a storage tent and two red tents on the upper level, each containing four bed rolls and two footlockers. Taking items from footlockers results in negative Karma. On the lower level, there is one more tent, which may have a few Legionaries sleeping inside. Each level has a campfire, and in all, there will be up to five legionaries residing at the camp.

A patrol of two to four legionaries walk a perimeter around the camp. NCR patrols sometimes travel near the raid camp and will engage in firefights with the Legion patrol. There are also two Powder Gangers being held hostage at the camp as part of the quest Booted. Sometimes, the camp will be attacked by two or more night stalkers. The night stalkers may kill everyone in the camp, making the completion of Booted impossible.

The camp and the area around it is one of the few places where legionaries respawn.

  • PCPC Xbox 360Xbox 360 The area to the northwest of the Legion raid camp seems very heavily bugged. Sometimes Legion members or night stalkers freeze and become totally unresponsive there, while an NCR patrol (or companions) endlessly circle them, trying to finish them off. It is possible to dispose of such "frozen" non-player characters by the console "kill" command, but sometimes even this is ineffective. In this case, the console "resurrect" command may cause them to disappear. [verified]

  • PCPC Xbox 360Xbox 360 Sometimes, when attacking the Legionaries, the Powder Gangers will stand up and run away. If the player character tries to talk to them, the message "Powder Ganger is fleeing," will appear. Reloading the game or fast traveling will solve the problem. [verified]
