"Gold Slouch"

The wrecked Highwayman is a location in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281. Located northwest of Snyder Prospector Camp and southwest of Clark Field, just off of Highway 95.

Layout[edit | edit source]

The location consists of the wreck of a Chryslus Highwayman, with the remains of such sinking into the ground. As of 2281, only the trunk of the car is visible. A footlocker can be found within the open trunk, containing random loot in addition to microfusion cells, energy cells, some scrap metal, and a Sunset Sarsaparilla star bottle cap.

Notable loot[edit | edit source]

Appearances[edit | edit source]

The wrecked Highwayman appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • The idea to place a wrecked Highwayman in Van Buren and subsequently New Vegas came from Joshua Sawyer.[1] It is a direct reference to the Chosen One's Highwayman in Fallout 2. The energy weapon ammunition in the trunk is a nod to the common practice of storing such items as spare Highwayman fuel in Fallout 2.
  • The wrecked Highwayman that was supposed to appear in Van Buren would have had a trunk full of microfusion cells and a Tanker FOB.[1]
  • Chris Avellone also expanded upon this stating it was just the trunk, reflecting the bug commonly seen in Fallout 2.[2]
  • Upon finding the wrecked Highwayman, "Gold Slouch" from the Fallout 2 soundtrack will begin to play.
  • Despite the fact that the car is labeled as a Highwayman, the vehicle more closely resembles a Corvega.
