You need water? I got water, clean and fresh, straight from Lake Mead. If you're low on caps, I've also got slightly irradiated wasteland water. A little fallout never killed anybody.

Lupe is a merchant at the Grub n' Gulp rest stop in Fallout: New Vegas.

Background[edit | edit source]

Lupe is a pleasant woman, selling water at the GnG. She co-founded the place with Fitz and is a fully licensed NCR water merchant, which means she can legally draw water from the NCR pipeline from Lake Mead.[1] She doesn't have a steady stream of customers; caravans and NCR patrols seldom stop for water, but wanderers show up a few times a week.[2] It doesn't help that most water trafficking is kept without organized outfits, leaving independent suppliers on their own.[3]

Aside from selling water, Lupe knows a fair deal about the surrounding wasteland, providing information about New Vegas, the New California Republic and the Fiends and the reputation of each.[4] She is also open about where one can stock up on non-water supplies and can point them to medical attention.[5]

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Lupe appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.


  1. The Courier: "Where do you get your water?"
    Lupe: "The NCR fixed up the pipe network pretty good, and water merchants like me are allowed to have some of it to sell. If we have a water license, of course. Still, it beats the inconvenience of having to trek all the way to the lake to resupply."
    (Lupe's dialogue)
  2. The Courier: "Do you get a lot of customers?"
    Lupe: "The caravans or NCR patrols usually don't stop, but we usually get people like yourself wandering on by a few times a week."
    (Lupe's dialogue)
  3. The Courier: "Are there many water merchants around here?"
    Lupe: "There's a few independent ones like me, but it's mostly the big trading outfits that deal in water, like the Crimson Caravan Company."
    (Lupe's dialogue)
  4. The Courier: "Anything I should know about New Vegas?"
    Lupe: "They won't just let anybody into the Strip, but you should be able to have a good time in Freeside itself. Just, uh, keep a close eye on your caps."
    The Courier: "What do you know about the NCR?"
    Lupe: "Their main base is right over there by the old airport - it's called Camp McCarran now. Some people like to paint 'em all as a bunch of bullies. Me, I'm glad they're around. They do what they can to keep things safe and orderly."
    The Courier: "Tell me about the Fiends."
    Lupe: "They're a bunch of crazies hopped up on all kind of drugs. Apparently, they're using one of the old vaults as a hideout. The army should really get in there and wipe 'em all out, but I guess they've got more than enough trouble to deal with right now."
    (Lupe's dialogue)
  5. The Courier: "Who sells equipment around here?"
    Lupe: "The Crimson Caravan Company's the big dog around here. Keep following the road north and you'll eventually come across their camp."
    The Courier: "Know where I can find a doctor?"
    Lupe: "I'm pretty sure they've got a doc over at Camp McCarran, but I don't know if he'll treat just anybody."
