Ranger Station Foxtrot is a location in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281. It is north of Red Rock Canyon and south of Vault 22.

Background

Located directly north of the Red Rock Canyon, the station is nestled at the foot of a radio mast in a dead-end mountainous gulch. Although it is only accessible from Nevada State Route 157, it is used to monitor the activities of the Great Khans.[1] The small outpost itself is reasonably well-run, however, the remoteness and tedium around the camp have led to a higher than average scotch consumption rate evidenced by the number of scotch bottles littering the camp.[2]

Layout

The station can be found off of Nevada State Route 157, leading east from Jacobstown by following the dirt path splitting off directly in front of Silver Peak mine. Alternatively, if approaching from the Vegas area, taking the main highway northwest past the Horowitz farmstead and then left onto the state route heading southwest will lead to the station.

Cazador nests and untraversable cliffsides block any approaches from the east. The camp consists of one tent, several outdoor bedrolls, and a campfire. Outside the tent, there is a reloading bench on the right side, against one of the two large wooden crates.

Inhabitants

Notable loot

  • A copy of Duck and Cover! is inside the tent, on the table with the ham radio.

Notes

  • Fast traveling to the ranger station can result in a cazador spawning in the middle of the camp, often killing one or two rangers before being killed by the soldiers around the station.
  • As most NCR held positions, this location can feature NCR Veteran Rangers starting at level 16, as long as the player character has reached one of the main faction's endgame quests.
  • To the east of the station, and before the player character reaches Brewer's beer bootlegging, a hidden cazador nest can be found, with the creatures guarding a duffle bag. The player character can not return to the station from this position due to the invisible wall.

Appearances

Bugs

If this is the case, try reloading from a previous save or alternatively, exiting to the main menu (PC) or restarting the console before loading a save may cause it to spawn properly. It is also possible for two of the books to spawn at this location.[verified]

    Nestled at the foot of a radio mast in a dead-end mountainous gulch is the small ranger station with four soldiers, run by Comm Officer Lenk. Aside from the Scotch scattered around camp, this looks to be a reasonably well-run outpost, which keeps a look-out for the nearby Great Khans."
