Interactions with the player character
NCR heavy troopers play a role in the final battle for Hoover Dam, especially if the player sides with a non-NCR faction.
- If the player sides with Mr. House or Yes Man, a pair of NCR heavy troopers can be found guarding the entrance to the Hoover Dam control room containing the control terminal which House/Yes Man wants the player to hack. These two heavy troopers have abnormally low health, with only 90 hit points each. If the heavy troopers catch the player entering the control room, it will turn them and the rest of the NCR soldiers at Hoover Dam hostile towards the player.
- If the player sides with Caesar's Legion, then a group of six NCR heavy troopers will fight alongside General Oliver as his bodyguards in the final battle, serving as the "final boss" of the game.
- They can be seen smoking at the 188 trading post, despite wearing helmets.
NCR heavy troopers appear only in Fallout: New Vegas.
