Goodsprings is a small town in the eastern Mojave Wasteland. The towns doctor, Doc Mitchell, is responsible for saving the life of the Courier after they were shot twice in the head and left in Goodspring's cemetery. Until recently, the town was a quiet one settled under a New California Republic grant in order to develop a low-risk mining environment near a reliable source of potable water, the Goodsprings source. Trade in the town has dried up because of the recent prison break at NCR Correctional Facility and the deathclaw infestation of nearby Quarry Junction. Aside from the lack of trade, Goodsprings is also repeatedly threatened by the Powder Gangers being led by Joe Cobb who is looking for a caravaneer hiding somewhere in town.
