Once in the vicinity of the ambush, the Courier will be spotted by a few members of the Viper Gang. They will start attacking immediately. Note that some of the Viper Gang will be up on the cliff, and can be quite hard to reach. Furthermore, there are a few wrecked cars and some hidden frag mines at this location.
- There is a Sunset Sarsaparilla star bottle cap that can be found in the first wreckage, coming from Nipton. It's on a Sunset Sarsaparilla crate in the back of a tilted truck wreck.
The Viper Gang ambush appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
