The monument to the event

In the year 2271, the Desert Rangers of Nevada and rangers of the New California Republic met at this spot to sign the Ranger Unification Treaty. Under this treaty, the Desert Rangers agreed to be absorbed into the NCR in exchange for NCR's protection of Hoover Dam, New Vegas, and southern Nevada against the forces of Caesar's Legion.Unification Monument

The Ranger Unification Treaty was an agreement signed between the New California Republic and the Desert Rangers of Nevada in 2271 at the Mojave Outpost.

Background

Under the treaty, the Desert Rangers were absorbed into the New California Republic Rangers. In return, the New California Republic took on the burden of protecting Hoover Dam, New Vegas, and southern portions of Nevada against the forces of the Caesar's Legion.[1][2][3]

In 2281, Veteran Rangers of the Republic all wear a similar combination of clothing to distinguish themselves from the NCR Army and other Rangers.[4] Additionally, a monument was erected at the Mojave Outpost to commemorate the signing of the treaty.[5][6]

Appearances

The Ranger Unification Treaty is mentioned only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenes

This treaty is one of several subtle references to the late 1980s computer game Wasteland, which was the inspiration for the Fallout series. In Wasteland, the player-controlled a team of "Desert Rangers" defending the post-apocalyptic Las Vegas area.

  2. Courier: "Why are the rangers here?"
    Hanlon: "There's a lot of answers to that question, but it started with the Ranger Unification Treaty. We weren't always the only show in town. Nevada had its own posse, the Desert Rangers. They fought Caesar even farther east, out in Arizona. Didn't go well for them. Years back, we met with the Desert Rangers at Mojave Outpost and agreed to help them against Caesar if they would join the NCR."

    The place where the Mojave Outpost now stands was originally a checkpoint between California and Nevada. After the war, it stood empty and vacant for well over a century. Ten years ago, the NCR Rangers and the Desert Rangers of Nevada (who have been dwindling in numbers) met at what had become known as the I-15 Mojave Outpost, to establish terms of the Ranger Unification Treaty. In its current form, Mojave Outpost serves as the link between NCR and the Mojave Wasteland."
