Place lived up to its name, that's for sure.

— Stella

Caliente is a small town based in a volcanic basin lying north of the Mojave Wasteland, on Highway 93.


It has a stable source of fresh water and a geothermal power station, making it a popular target for raiders, typically White Legs or the 80s.[1][2] Stella used to be the town's sheriff.


Caliente is mentioned only in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts.

Behind the scenes

  • Caliente is a real town north of Las Vegas on Highway 93.


  1. The Courier: "Tell me about Caliente."
    Stella: "Place lived up to its name, that's for sure. When you got fresh water and a trickle of geothermic power, always be some gang of assholes wants to kill you for it. Spent more years and took more bullets than I care to admit protecting that hellhole from dangers, within and without. If it wasn't the 80s or the White Legs raiding, it was someone from town drunk off his ass trying to win an argument with a shotgun. Got tired of shooting the folks I was supposed to protect. So... now I do this."
    (Stella's dialogue (Honest Hearts))
  2. The Courier: "What are you doing here?"
    Stella: "Earning my keep. Jed hired me on as a caravan guard for this expedition of his. The work suits me. I've tried staying put in one place, but it never works out. Grew up in New Reno, and I couldn't put that snakepit behind me fast enough. Then I wound up wasting the prime of my life playing Sheriff in Caliente, little town north on the 93. Talk about a pain in the ass. You ask me, best to keep moving. At least the scenery changes."
    (Stella's dialogue (Honest Hearts))
