Nope. I'm just the only ranger around. The rest of the kids here are troopers. Inexperienced, out-numbered and under-equipped.

Ranger Milo is an NCR Ranger living in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281. He is found patrolling at a small NCR checkpoint on the road heading east to Nelson.


He saved many NCR troopers during the Battle of Nelson. An uncompromising individual, he is not pleased by the Legion's use of NCR hostages to discourage attacks, and believes that killing them is the only way to get his troops to retaliate.

Other interactions

  • He will warn the Courier of the danger up ahead, as Caesar's Legion has captured the nearby Camp Nelson (if they have a high reputation with the NCR he will let them through).
  • Milo will joke about a "few dozen" doses of Psycho (24), claiming it would get the weepy soldiers moving down the hill to attack, but if the Courier actually has the Psycho, he will say he is impressed (granting small NCR fame) but admit he was only joking.
  • He will remark upon the reputation the Courier currently has with the NCR when they introduce themselves. He seems to look down on the NCR troopers, considering them inferior.
  • He will also respond to one's Terrifying Presence after threatening them with his suspicion on siding with the Legion if one walks into Nelson alone. This will cause him to cower in fear, disallowing future dialogue.
  • If the Courier's Intelligence is lower than 4 when first meeting Ranger Milo, he will inform them that some "Legion snakes" are held up in Nelson to which the Courier can respond, "Snakes are small. Why don't you just use a gun or whatever to shoot them." He will then call them "special folk" and explain that they are not really snakes but "like snakes."



  • He has named his cowboy repeater "Carmine," but it is just a standard repeater.
  • In dialogue with him, one can choose to identify the Courier by name, one of the rare cases in the game where the Courier's name is used.


Ranger Milo appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
