Mesquite Mountains Crater

(Redirected from Mesquite Mountains crater)

The Mesquite Mountains crater is a heavily irradiated location in the Mojave Wasteland in Fallout: New Vegas. It is located southwest of Primm and north of Mesquite Mountains camp site.

Background

Publications

In the western foothills west of the California Sunset Drive-in [4.18], there’s a Mesquite Mountains Lean-To [4.S21] and some rather ominous flecks of irradiated matter emanating from the hills behind. This is the location of an ancient crater. There are Feral Ghouls here that remain ready to kill, as well as irradiated tumbleweed. Keep to the rocks and explore further to the west, and a strange two-level shack appears through the haze. This is Hell’s Motel.
Pass the fungal flower beds and enter the premises, and prepare to repel the advances of a Crazed Mister Handy. He’s already put the knife to his erstwhile master Doctor Rotson, who’s usually carrying a Doctor’s Bag on his corpse.

Layout

The pools of water are irradiated and at any given time, there are several feral ghouls, roamers, or reavers roaming the area.[Pub 1] A small shack known as Hell's Motel is situated on the southwest side of the crater. A copy of D.C. Journal of Internal Medicine can be found inside the house next to the radio along with a weapon repair kit.

To the east, there is an improvised shelter with a bed and a first aid box. Below the eastern cliff is a makeshift shack with a motorcycle - a Fixin' Things and Programmer's Digest may be found on top of the motorcycle and underneath a stack of burned books, respectively.

Loot

  • Two Sunset Sarsaparilla Star Bottle Caps, the first inside Hell's Motel at the back of the crater. It is located inside the kitchen on top of the table in the middle of the room. The second can be found inside a wooden box within the makeshift shack to the east.

Appearances

The Mesquite Mountains crater appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
