The scorpion burrow is an unmarked location in the Mojave Wasteland. It is located south of Nipton Road pit stop, in the dry lake bed.

Layout[edit | edit source]

Exterior[edit | edit source]

Aside from the threat of multiple giant radscorpions, a pack of night stalkers roam nearby. The two creature types normally attack each other, but if the Courier is detected, they'll attack the Courier instead.

Interior[edit | edit source]

Inside is a long corridor that leads to a large double-room cavern containing five radscorpions and a radscorpion queen. At the beginning of the corridor, a dead wastelander can be found. In the first room, there are two other dead wastelanders and in the last room, that contains the radscorpion queen, a dead Jackal gang member and a dead prospector can be found. After 144 in-game hours (not 6 days, calculated "the next day" at 12:00 A.M.), seven radscorpions will re-spawn (2 medium 50% chance, 1 medium 75% chance, 2 small 30% chance, 1 small 50% chance, 1 small 75% chance, unique random encounter).

Notes[edit | edit source]

Sometimes a wastelander can be found upon entering the burrow. He'll stay still near the entrance.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

The scorpion burrow appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
