The scavenger platform is a location in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281. It is a pontoon raft in the middle of Lake Mead.


This location consists of 18 barges joined together into four sections by wooden bridges. On each of these are makeshift shacks. Towards the middle on the edge of one is a campfire. There are also up to six lakelurks occupying the platform.

On the western side of the structure are two ramps attached to the edge of the platform to make it easier to get to and from the water. Despite being a raft and not being anchored down, the platform stays at the same point and does not float around the lake.

Notable loot


The scavenger platform appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
