The Nopah cave is a small cavern located in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281. It is located southeast of Chance's map.


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


The cave has a simple layout. A narrow passageway leads to an empty chamber. The chamber branches off into other sections, each with a moderate amount of fire geckos (typically up to nine). 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 found here, 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 found on the corpse of a super mutant master.


The Nopah cave appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Nopah cave is located in the same geographical area as the real world Nopah Range, a mountainous region on Nevada's western border with California.
