Gibson scrap yard is a location in the Mojave Wasteland north of Novac.


This modest scrapyard has been owned and operated by Old Lady Gibson for the last few years – since the passing of her husband.[1]


The scrap yard has two sections, the yard and the office slash garage. The yard is filled with stacked, derelict cars and other assorted junk, with a few dumpsters scattered around. There is a small kennel at the western fence, with two mattresses for Gibson's dogs, and a small storage shack leaning against the garage with locked metal boxes.

The garage itself contains a small office, now Gibson's living room, and the garage proper, with her bed, a workbench, some storage shelves and a motorcycle parked in the center. Old Lady Gibson typically passes the day sitting outside the garage, on a chair made from an O letter salvaged from the REPCONN monument at the REPCONN test site.

Behind the scenes

  • Old Lady Gibson named her dogs using Spanish words. These are "Audacious" (Audaz), "Trash" (Basura), "Fang" (Colmillo), "Faithful" (Fiel), "Queen" (Reina), and "King" (Rey).


Gibson scrap yard appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.


  1. Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide Collector's Edition p.406: "[5.14] Gibson Scrap Yard
    Old Lady Gibson has been running this modest scrapyard for the last few years since the passing of her husband. All she has now are memories, and a collection of hounds that she dotes on. Inside the garage is where Reina and Rey stay, and Old Lady Gibson rests. There's a metal box [Average] to open, either via Bobby Pins and talent, or by acquiring Gibson's through Pickpocketing or killing her. The box contains the Thrust Control Modules; vital for a Side Quest if its active. Unless you're heartless, there's no reason to get on the bad side of Gibson. Speak to her, and she can tell you about HELIOS One, as well as Repairing your items or Trading with you; she's one of the best in the Mojave! Finally, kill Gibson to take her Unique Sawed-Off Shotgun; Big Boomer."
