Golgotha is the graveyard outside of New Reno, where people are sent to be killed, and/or killed people are buried, when they fall out with one of the mob families in New Reno.
Graves lie to all four sides of a paved crossroads, and staked bodies rot in the sun. A sign points northwest to New Reno and down, conveniently indicating the direction of Hell.
Golgotha can not be naturally revealed on the map, and there are only 3 way to get it's location:
- Ask Jules in the Virgin Street of New Reno and choose the replies "Can you tell me a little about New Reno?" until "Golgotha?".
- Try to remove Myron from the group and choose the reply "Like what kind of favor?" He will then tell you about a secret Mordino stash containing the loot only accessible through this dialogue.
- During the quest "Track down Pretty Boy Lloyd, recover the stolen money, and make an… example of him."
Simple: The footlocker contains the cash Lloyd stole.

Magic 8 ball stash:
- Digging up the other graves than this of the quest "Track down Pretty Boy Lloyd, recover the stolen money, and make an… example of him." will reduce your karma significantly - save/reload can be a good way to avoid getting it.
- Until you get the response from the Magic 8 ball, a grave in the right section, marked Trash, is empty. Once the clue is given, the grave contains $374.
- It is the only peaceful means to obtain the Mirrored shades, unless planning to kill Mason for his.
- Golgotha is lavishly endowed with text descriptions on the grave markers: poetic inscriptions, limericks, and doggerel abound. Numerous names of Fallout 2 production staff are in evidence.
Behind the scenes
- In Christianity, the place where Jesus was crucified is also called Golgotha, Greek meaning "place of the skull", and the rest of the road in the Golgotha strangely form a cross.
- The Courier: "What was that like to grow up in New Reno?"
Stella: "Imagine New Vegas if there was no Mr. House-type fella keeping the peace, then give everybody a gun and a Jet addiction. Town's run by a bunch of crime families, no law to speak of. Make trouble, and you wind up buried in Golgotha, outside town. The scuzz factor's off the charts. Non-stop whoring and drugs. Couldn't walk down the street without getting asked to star in a porn movie. So I got my ass out of there while I still owned it. Guess I figured the answer to every problem was rule of law. Naive, huh?"
