Point of reference
Name Type Overview
188 Trading Post Tradepost A stopping point where Highway 93 and Highway 95 intersect, the trading post is a small but well traveled area that sees a lot of foot traffic since the NCR closed the Long 15 because of deathclaws infesting it.
Boulder City Town Boulder City was like any town before the First Battle of Hoover Dam, but after, As the Caesar's Legion was beginning to overtake the NCR during the the Battle of Hoover Dam, the NCR had evacuated and booby trapped the town with tons of explosives as a trap for the Legion. Once an order of retreat was given, the NCR fell far back and let the Legion enter Boulder City was blown up as a trap. The trap worked, severely crippling the Legion that day, but most of the town was destroyed. Today, Boulder City is little more than a construction town that turns limestone into cement, but because of deathclaws, cement processing has ceased.
Goodsprings Town An almost ghost town based around a still operating fresh water spring from before the war. Largely isolated from most of the happening in the Mojave, the rare caravan and odd courier does travel to Goodsprings, but that always once in a blue moon.
Novac Town Barely a town, Novac is based around the remains of a roadside motel on Highway 95. The town gets by largely on prospecting the surrounding area, like the REPCONN test site, and from caravans stopping in from travelling on the Highway.
Primm Town Billing itself as "The other New Vegas", Primm is a small, independent town that gets by on trading and gambling.
Sloan Mining outpost A small mining outpost that works Quarry Junction for limestone for the NCR, but has ceased production due to a deathclaw infestation of the quarry.
New Vegas
North Vegas Square
Red Rock Canyon
Bitter Springs
Nellis Air Force Base

List of abandoned communities[edit | edit source]

Name Type Overview Cause of abandonment
Nipton Town A large community with an economy based on services and trade. Proximity to Republican military camps and trade routes leading into Vegas helped foster a trade in entertainment (booze, drugs, prostitution), while the lack of law enforcement encouraged settlement by less-than-desirable citizens. Sacked by Legion forces under Vulpes Inculta. Most denizens slaughtered and crucified, remainder enslaved. One survivor.[1]
Nelson Village A small mining community on the shores of the Colorado. Occupied by Caesar's Legion under Decanus Dead Sea.[2]
Searchlight Military camp A military base securing the south-eastern Mojave, set up in a ghost town dating back to the times of the Gold Rush of the 19th century. Destroyed by frumentarii through the use of a dirty bomb.[3]
Tribal village Village A small village built into the mountain. Raided by the Fiends and later overrun by Cazadores[4]
