The eight Nipton houses are locations in the Mojave Wasteland.


Inside house #4 with the sandbags in front, one can find frag mines in the corner of the living room, kitchen, and bathroom. Both doorways conceal shotgun traps. There is a cage with three bark scorpions directly inside the house. There is an Easy locked safe with a grenade rifle inside, but if the pressure plate to the front of it is triggered, the scorpions will be released. The Average locked cabinet in the kitchen contains some provisions, as well as a dead Legion recruit with a machete, armor, and helmet.

In house #7 to the southeast of the town hall, a prototype Mister Gutsy can be found. The house contains a few damaged weapons, including two .357 Magnum revolvers, a plasma pistol, and a laser rifle. The house also has various metal/electronic parts and items needed for crafting weapon repair kits, including wrenches, scrap metal, wonderglue, and duct tape. A Wild Wasteland event takes place in front of house #6.
