The Devil's Throat is a location in the Mojave Wasteland.


The Devil's Throat is a giant radioactive crater in the northeastern desert. There are pools of contaminated water at the bottom of the crater, and a wrecked truck in the center with scattered toxic waste barrels nearby. A dead super mutant lies at the rear of the truck.

The area is inhabited by centaurs, including the giant evolved centaur. They respawn after three in-game days when killed.

Notable lootEdit


  • The rad level in the water around the barrels normally sits around 11 per drink.
  • The rad level by the barrels of radioactive waste varies from 2-8 rads per second.
  • Northwest of the Devil's Throat is a super mutant camp with 2-4 super mutant masters. Sometimes two NCR Rangers will spawn in the camp and fight the super mutants.

  • The truck in the crater is unique, in that it does not have a motor and doors like the other truck wreckages found in the wastes.


The Devil's Throat appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
