Ranger station Alpha
Ranger station Alpha
Background[edit | edit source]
Before taking Hoover Dam, Ranger station Alpha was the frontline outpost for the NCR in the Mojave but as since fallen to more of a support role then anything else. Legion scouts try to slip across the Narrows a couple times a week, however the Rangers stationed always send them floating downriver with holes in their heads. Ranger Rebecca Lineholm and Comm Officer Castillo are the current ranking officers at the station.
Layout[edit | edit source]
Overlooking the Narrows just north of Hoover Dam, the station is perched up on an overlook, and contains three tents next to a radio tower, an outhouse, and the usual sandbag emplacements at access points. The southernmost tent houses the communications equipment, together with a situation map and Wattz radios for use by the rangers out on patrol. The middle one acts as storage, with minor loot on the shelves along with two Easy ammo boxes that contain some frag mines and some .357 Magnum rounds and a first aid box. The last tent contains three beds for use by the Rangers.
It's possible for lakelurks spawning on the shores of Lake Mead to attack the camp, much to the chagrin of the Rangers stationed here.
Notable loot[edit | edit source]
- Lad's Life: Near the ham radio in Comm Officer Castillo's tent.

- Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide Collector's Edition p.370: "[3.30] Ranger Station Alpha
Another NCR Ranger Station with commanding views of The Fort [3.28] and Lake Mead, these troops keep their eyes open for movement along "The Narrows." Ranger Lineholm (who tells you the story of the bomber that crashed into the lake, how great Rangers are, and the role the station plays) commands this place, and Comm Officer Castillo (who you can ask similar questions to) are stationed here."
