Limited Edition Mojave Landmark snow globes are collectible items in Fallout: New Vegas.


Globe Trotter
These rare, pre-War artifacts are widely considered to be useless baubles, but rumor has it that some collectors will pay dearly for them.

The snow globes found in the world can be sold to Jane for 2,000 caps each, which will also add them to the snow globe display stand in the Lucky 38 presidential suite.

Snow globes found in add-ons are displayed on a shelf located directly above the snow globe stand. As soon as one is picked up, 2,000 caps will automatically be given (with the exception of the Sierra Madre snow globe, which will instead give 2,000 Sierra Madre chips) and the snow globe will appear on the shelf.

They are a promotional item from Vault-Tec Industries, much like the promotional bobbleheads from the East coast that appeared in Fallout 3, Fallout 4, and Fallout 76. The Vault Boy appears in every one of the snow globes.


There are a total of seven to find in the Mojave Wasteland, and an additional four from the locations visited in the add-ons: one each from Dead Money, Honest Hearts, Old World Blues, and Lonesome Road.

Related quests[]


  • Snow globes are marked as quest items and cannot be removed from the Courier's inventory (unless sold to Jane).
  • Due to being marked quest items, snow globes have no net weight, despite being marked as having a weight of 1 lb. (Fixed in patch
  • If Mr. House dies, Jane will disappear, and it will no longer be possible to remove the snow globes from the inventory. However, PC users can use the console command player.placeatme 00116a50 to spawn Jane to their location to continue adding snow globes to the stand. Should Jane still be aggressive after spawning, use console command stopcombat after having talked at her to stop all combat.
  • To receive the Globe Trotter achievement, only the seven snow globes in the base game need to be found; selling them to Jane is not necessary to get the achievement. The four snow globes found in the add-ons do not contribute to this achievement.
  • Unlike the Vault-Tec bobbleheads in Fallout 3 and Fallout 4, the snow globes in Fallout: New Vegas provide no SPECIAL or skill benefits.
  • After they end up on the display shelf, the snow globes cannot be interacted with in any way.
  • Picking up the snow globes in the add-ons will add them to the shelf automatically and do not require Mr. House to be alive.
  • The Toaster in The Sink will shout out that it has a "super-rare Mojave snow globe," and all the Courier has to do to get it is reach down into his bread slot. Due to the murderous nature of the Toaster, this is more of an attempt to kill the Courier via electrocution.
  • Three of the four snow globes found in the add-ons do not have snowing animations, except for the Zion National Park snow globe: the Sierra Madre snow globe contains Cloud gas, and the Big MT snow globe simply doesn't have any snow, while the Lonesome Road snow globe is the only globe that is damaged; a large hole can be seen on the dome and the Vault Boy inside has fallen over.

Behind the scenes[]

It's for the Citizen Kane reference, partially because it's especially fitting for Mr. House. He has no interest in physically interacting with the world but wants absolute control over New Vegas. Snow globes are perfect static worlds in miniature that can't be directly touched but can be (literally) turned up side down any time the owner desires.— Joshua Sawyer[1]

Joshua Sawyer stated that he likely came up with the snow globes, because they represent a "little perfectly controlled world," in the vein of Citizen Kane.[2]

    Joshua Sawyer: "'Who came up with the snow globes?' Umm... I did, I think. I'm pretty sure it was me. I'm gonna get an e-mail from John Gonzalez saying 'no, actually, it was me.' I think it was me because Mr. House is very, uh... he's very 'Citizen-Kaney.' He has that vibe. And snow globes felt like a little perfectly controlled world. Seemed appealing to him."
