Silver Peak mine
The Silver Peak Mine is just off the path to Jacobstown.
Layout[edit | edit source]
The Silver Peak Mine is actually connected to the Silver Peak Mine shack. The Silver Peak Mine is home to many cazadores and the legendary cazador. They entered the mine by means of a hole, high on the wall in the large cavern containing cazadors. Outside are two bighorner bulls which will attack immediately if you fast travel to the location. Inside the mine at the back of the great chamber with the cazadores is a tunnel the leads up the upper level with a number of crates and a gate. Entering this tunnel triggers a number of cazadores and a legendary cazador to spawn in another chamber and sets them to move directly to and attack the player.
Notable loot[edit | edit source]
- Remnants power helmet on the top level of the cazador cave, behind a fence door.
- Tumblers Today in one of the lockers on the right as you enter the shack, The locker reads as empty but can be seen on the floor "inside" all the way to the right. Available without having to fight any cazadors
- Sunset Sarsaparilla star bottle cap on one of the tables, right in front of the entrance.
- Several crates containing explosives, including C-4 plastic explosive, plasma grenades, frag mines, frag grenades, dynamite, pulse grenades and pulse mines.
