There's voices here in the Big Empty, I want to talk to them. Not like your Elijah did. Got questions. Want to hear history give its answer.Ulysses, to Christine Royce

Ulysses' Point is a location in Big MT in 2281. It is found northeast of the X-2 transmitter antenna array, west of the Y-17 medical facility, south of the Sink entrance, and northwest of Higgs Village.


Serving as Ulysses' campsite during his visit to Big MT, his explorations led him to discover and subsequently rescue Christine Royce who was trapped at the Y-17 medical facility,[1] bringing the Brotherhood assassin to the cave to recover from her ordeal. In gratitude, she fixed up a holotape recorder and gave it to Ulysses, who would later use it to record his thoughts. During Christine's days-long recuperation, they shared many discussions on many topics like history and the failure of modern civilizations like NCR and Caesar's Legion to bring a good future to the wasteland.[2][3]

When Ulysses later returned to the cave after his eventful meeting with the Think Tank, he told her about Father Elijah and his quest for the Sierra Madre. Ulysses found a similarity in Christine's determination to follow her target into "that special kind of hell," likening it to his own personally driven search for an important person.[3][4][5][6]

At some point, after she had fully recovered, Christine left to resume following Elijah and Ulysses also abandoned the cave, taking what he learned from the Think Tank and traveling to the Divide. It sat vacant until the Courier was brought to Big MT in 2281.[7]


Several lobotomites may spawn as the player character approaches, both from the nearby Higgs Village or dropping down from directly over the entrance. The entrance is marked with a lantern above a cave, most clearly visible if approaching from the X-2 transmitter antenna array, and the top of the rock has a small radar dish on it.

A blue-colored Old-World flag positioned facing down, one of Ulysses' paint markers can be seen on the cabinet to the right. The interior consists of a single room which has a reloading bench and a campfire.

Notable loot[]


In Fallout: 76, a skin could once be obtained for the ammo storage box featuring a vertical flag emblem on its right door, strongly resembling the markings on the file cabinet seen at this location.


Ulysses' Point appears only in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.
