The Devil's Throat is a giant radioactive crater in the northeastern Mojave 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 a giant evolved centaur. They respawn after three in-game days when killed.
- Reinforced combat armor and a unique party hat - Found on a dead prospector in the truck trailer.
- The unique minigun, CZ57 Avenger - Also in the trailer, lying next to the dead prospector.
- The radiation level in the water around the barrels is approximately 11 per drink, and surrounding the barrels varies between 2-8 rads per second.
- The truck in the crater is unique, in that it does not have a motor and doors like the other wrecked trucks found in the wastes.
- Northwest of the Devil's Throat is a super mutant camp with up to four super mutant masters. Sometimes two NCR Rangers will spawn in the camp and fight the super mutants.
- Wild Wasteland encounter will occur at this camp in which an undetonated atomic bomb called The One will be present to the north-northwest of the location. A
The Devil's Throat appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
Behind the scenes
Devil's Throat is based on the real world Devil's Throat sinkhole at Gold Butte National Monument in Clark County, Nevada. The real world Devil's Throat is located east of the in-game location, on the other side of Lake Mead. A half-finished crater exists in the approximate location of the real version in-game, outside the playable area.
- Upon returning to this location, the dead super mutant may appear alive and hostile, but with very few hit points. He will respawn after several in-game days, either alive or dead. [verified]
- When visiting this place for the first time, neither the super mutant nor the dead prospector will be there. However, the CZ57 Avenger will still be in the correct spot. Saving and reloading or returning later may fix this. [verified]
