Nopah Cave is a small cave located in the Mojave Wasteland, southeast of Chance's map.


These ancient caverns were once famed for trilobite fossils, but fire geckos roam here now.[1]


Nopah Cave is quite small. It has a narrow passage way leading to an empty chamber. The chamber branches off into other chambers, each with a moderate amount of fire geckos (typically 7 to 9). In the back of the left chamber, there is a dead super mutant master lying face down with a badly damaged Fat Man in his inventory. However, there are no mini nukes to be found in the entire cave. There are several skeletons in the cave, including one near the super mutant with a bag named "Adventurer's Pack" which contains some loot. Also seen is the severed head and chest of a man.

Notable lootEdit

  • A nearly broken Fat Man is located on the corpse of a super mutant master.


Nopah Cave appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenesEdit

Nopah Cave is based on real world location Nopah Range, a mountainous region on the western Nevada border with California.
