Van Graff thugs are the foot soldiers of the Van Graff crime syndicate found within the Mojave Wasteland in Fallout: New Vegas.


Van Graff thugs are guards that are seen inside the Silver Rush, guarding the store's large inventory of energy weapons. They are extremely well-equipped, wielding urban plasma rifles and wearing black combat armor, similar to the unique Van Graff combat armor.

With powerful weaponry, a very high energy weapons skill, good armor, and a relatively high amount of hit points, Van Graff thugs are very potent combatants and can be dangerous when fought all at once, alongside Jean-Baptiste Cutting and Gloria Van Graff.

There are a total of five Van Graff thugs guarding the Silver Rush, not including Simon, the front door bouncer.

A pair of dead Van Graff thugs can be found at the site of Durable Dunn's sacked caravan as part of the quest Heartache by the Number.

Their combat armor is uncommon, and is distinguishable by its black coating. The combat armor worn by the Van Graff thugs, should not be confused with the unique variant called the Van Graff combat armor.
