The scavenger platform is a location in the Mojave Wasteland. It is a pontoon raft in the middle of Lake Mead. Despite being a raft and not being anchored down, the platform stays in the same point and does not float around the lake.
This location consists of four rafts joined together by wooden bridges. On each of these are makeshift shacks. Towards the middle on the edge of one is a campfire. There are also 4 to 6 lakelurks that occupy the platform. At the western side of the platform are two ramps attached to the edge of the platform to make it easier to get from the water onto the platform.

- Sunset Sarsaparilla star bottle cap on the shelf in the northeastern most hut next to the overturned ammunition box.
- To the west, at the bottom of the lake, lies the sunken Sunset Sarsaparilla truck. The submerged truck contains, among other items, 3 Sunset Sarsaparilla star bottle caps. The rebreather makes going after these much easier.
The scavenger platform appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
