Walking Box Cavern is a location in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281. It is found due south of Dead Wind Cavern and west of the Legion raid camp.


A group of seven night stalkers spawn at the mouth of the cave, which contains some bones from previous prey. A hollowed-out rock is located straight ahead when facing away from the cave entrance.

The inside of the cavern is a relatively small cave filled with purple fungus. In the middle, a duffle bag can be found between the remains of earlier victims. The cavern's main corridor branches to a north room that is filled with four night stalkers.

The western room contains five night stalkers and a high level loot duffle bag. After three days, if the stalkers are killed, up to 13 other stalkers will respawn (4 x 100% chance, 5 x 75% chance, and 4 x 50% chance, first random encounter). After another four days, if four night stalkers are killed (those having 100% chance of re-spawning), two deathclaws and two young deathclaws will spawn (second and last random encounter).

Notable loot

A suit of reinforced combat armor with a helmet can be found in a duffle bag in the cave's western room.


Walking Box Cavern appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

The player character will still receive their companion perks, but will not be able to see them or talk to them. Using the map to travel to a marker (even to Walking Box Cavern) seems to fix the problem.[verified]
