The Mojave Express is one of many courier groups that have emerged with the NCR's eastward expansion to tackle the task of carrying letters and other packages across enormous distances of the American Southwest. The Mojave Express couriers will deliver messages and other items from the Mojave Wasteland to New California and everywhere in between. The company is based out of the Hub.
Interactions with the player character
Dropboxes operated by this company allow the player character to move items between different locations. A dropbox exists within the Mojave Express building, and four more can be found throughout the Mojave Wasteland, located in Goodsprings, Novac, Freeside, and on the New Vegas Strip.
Mojave Express appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
Behind the scenes
Joshua Sawyer stated that the team intentionally left the Courier's originals and the exact nature of the initial transaction vague.[Non-canon 1]
- The Courier: "What was strange about it?"
Johnson Nash: "To start with, it was a robot that set it up! Came rolling in with a picture of a cowboy on a screen where its face should be. Had me send a request to the Express office in Hub, for seven couriers to be hired. Each one to carry , seemed to me! Playing cards, dice, chess pieces, trinkets like that. Then, next thing I know, he turns around and says he wants six couriers, not seven! Has me send on the "corrected" order for six couriers along with a bunch of letters and numbers, like some kind of code or something! Don't ask me what that was about, I never seen anything like it. "
(Johnson Nash's dialogue)
- Fallout: New Vegas loading screens: "With the expansion of post-apocalyptic society across the American southwest, Courier groups like the Mojave Express have appeared to take on the difficult task of carrying letters and packages over enormous distances."
