Big Horn Saloon
Big Horn Saloon
Welcome back to the Big Horn. What can I get you?”— Ike
Background[edit | edit source]
A classic watering hole on the frontier, Big Horn Saloon is the only place of note in the derelict Boulder City after the First Battle of Hoover Dam. Since 2277, it's reserved for NCR concrete mixing factory workers producing material for the bunkers lining the Colorado River. NCR soldiers are banned by command from entering the premises, due to constant fistfights with the factory workers - not that many obeyed the ban. Ike, the proprietor, will serve anyone coming through the front doors, even soldiers. A man's got to make a living, after all, especially after the workers cleared out due to work stoppage caused by the Quarry Junction shutdown.
Layout[edit | edit source]
The saloon is located at the northwestern edge of town, near the Boulder City Memorial. Inside is a classic frontier saloon, with Ike manning the counter. The door next to the counter leads to the kitchen, storage room, and Ike's bedroom all in one.
The saloon will be empty until the player clears out Quarry Junction.
Notable loot[edit | edit source]
- Sunset Sarsaparilla star bottle cap: Second table on the left from the entrance.
- Lever-action shotgun: On Sunset Sarsaparilla crate in the storage room. Considered owned.
- 3 Nuka-Cola Quartz: Middle shelf on the back wall. Can be purchased from Ike.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
Big Horn Saloon appears in Fallout: New Vegas.
- The Courier: "Why is the Big Horn off limits to troopers?"
Ike: "The workers here don't much like the military. After too many fights and broken noses, the NCR doesn't allow troops to spend time here. That doesn't stop a few people like yourself, of course. Don't worry, I won't say a word."
- The Courier: "Where does the concrete come from?"
Ike: "Most of the limestone comes from Quarry Junction out west, but I hear some Deathclaws overran the quarry. With no work to be had, all the workers around here have wandered off. I'm the only one left in town."
