X-12 IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. ON AN UNRELATED NOTE, WHOEVER CLOSED X-12, PLEASE REPORT TO THE DOME.Doctor Klein

The X-12 research center is a location in Big MT in 2281. It is located directly southwest of the Think Tank.

Layout

An upgraded sonic emitter pistol is needed to get past the force field blocking the stairs going down. On the bottom floor below, the Y-17 master trauma harness is wandering around. After disposing of it, three more Y-17 trauma override harness entities will spawn at the front door.

Two deluxe chemistry sets can be found on the bottom floor. For each chemistry set, and with a Science skill of at least 25, these can be used to create five stimpaks or a set of five "drugs."

Notable loot

Appearances

The X-12 research center appears only in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.

Behind the scenes

FB8 deco 301 color.pngThe following is based on unverified behind the scenes information and may be inaccurate.
  • There is a buffalo gourd seed wedged between two machines that appear to be unsuccessfully attempting to crush it. This could be another reference to the film Buckaroo Banzai in which a watermelon is found in almost the exact same situation.

Perk wild wasteland.pngThe following is based on the Wild Wasteland trait.
  • With the Wild Wasteland trait, the Y-17 master trauma harness and the three regular Y-17s that spawn upon his death will say and repeat "Hey, who turned out the lights?" This is a reference to the Doctor Who episode "Silence in the Library."
