The Nipton General Store or Nipton Trading Post is a building in Nipton, located in the Mojave Wasteland.


The general store has two levels, one of which was commercial and one residential. Boxcars (who gives the Courier the quest Booted) is sitting on a chair on the first floor, surrounded by toppled over food items in the commercial section. Upstairs, past an Easy locked door, is an abandoned apartment containing a safe.


  • The bathtub on the second floor is one of the only bathtubs in the wasteland to have standing water in it.
  • While Boxcars claims to have been crippled by the Legion, he will stand and run towards the Courier if attacked.
  • Standing in the bathtub and jumping causes the wave created by the impact on the water's surface to extend beyond the walls of the tub.
  • This location should not be confused with the Nipton Road General Store at the Nipton Road reststop.


The Nipton General Store appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Nipton General Store is located in the same geographical area as the real world Nipton Trading Post in Nipton, California. The signage above the door is similar in appearance to the in-game location, with the exception of the left mining icon being flipped.
