The Morning Star Cavern is a location in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281. It is situated east of the Mojave Outpost and southwest of the Nipton Road pit stop.[1]


The entrance to the cave is surrounded by rocks and skeletons. Next to the hollowed-out rock, the Courier can find an explosives crate filled with various explosives guarded by six night stalkers.

The cave is inhabited by the den mother, which is a special, stronger and rarer version of a night stalker. There are also many young night stalkers in this cavern. The cavern is a small, single crescent-shaped room. To the right is a dead end, and to the left is a large arc that will lead to a dead mercenary and a duffle bag.


The Morning Star Cavern appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

    In the southwestern corner of the Ivanpah Dry Lake are a series of flat, tiered rocks leading up to a Nightstalker pack and an opening in the rock wall. Check the Hollowed-Out Rock before entering this dark cavern. This winding cavern curves around past a couple of corpse and bone piles, to a large rear alcove where more Nightstalkers are ready to pounce, near a Mercenary corpse."
