The Searchlight west church is a location within Camp Searchlight in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281, found on the western edge of the camp.[1]


The church is one of two located in Camp Searchlight, this one occupying the western portion of the camp's map. In front of it, there is a Mark III turret next to some sandbags. The church itself consists of a single room that has lost most of its roof. When entering the church through the main gate, the player character can find a turret defense terminal on the left, giving them access to the turret that stands in front of the church.

In the back of the church, there is a cellar door that leads to the Searchlight NCR storage. Logan and his crew of three prospectors are taking refuge in the basement, as part of the quest Wheel of Fortune.

  • The billboard in front of the church displays the Christian Bible verse Revelation 9:6, which reads, "And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them." [2]
  • The billboard used to read "BINGO EVERY TUESDAY NIGHT 6:30 9:30," which would account for why the "L" in "REVELATION" is actually an upside down "T."


The Searchlight west church appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

The ruined chapel offers reasonable defensive areas (the walls and doorways) to attack from. At the back is a Cellar Door to Searchlight NCR Storage. Enter the Cellar Door and root around in this root cellar, although three Prospectors (including Logan) have got there first. Logan’s a real piece of work, but if you can stand him, you can team up and begin Side Quest: Wheel of Fortune. Or you can kill him for the keys to the two largest buildings in town. Check the NCR Storage Database Terminal [Average] (as part of the Side Quest) or open the Floor Safe [Average] using Bobby Pins."
