Legion explorers are the advanced scouts and messengers of Caesar's Legion, operating in the Mojave Wasteland in Fallout: New Vegas. They are easily distinguished by the cloth hoods they wear.


Legion explorers are tasked with surveying the lay of the land ahead of the primary Legion fighting force. They are also used as messengers for relaying communications between Legion outposts. Explorers are lightly armored and equipped, as their role in the Legion involves observation and speed rather than pure combat. Their Legion explorer armor provides only very modest protection, and they carry only a machete, a few throwing spears, and occasionally a hunting rifle or cowboy repeater.

Legion Explorers can be found at Nelson and Cottonwood Cove, the Legion's two primary bases of operation west of the Colorado river. They can also be found at Caesar's stronghold, Fortification Hill.

Interactions with the player character

Interactions overview

This character has no special interactions.

Other Interactions

At Nelson, a Legion explorer is stationed at each of the four cardinal directions from the camp, and will confront the player if they approach, demanding to know what they are doing there. The player is given the option of either being escorted to Dead Sea, the local Legion commander, or resisting the explorer and turning the entire camp hostile.

Likewise, a handful of explorers can be found patrolling Cottonwood Cove, with one explorer stationed permanently at the entrance to the camp. The explorer will demand to know the player's business; the player can either pass a speech check claiming to be a trader, claim to be a friend of the Legion, or attack outright.
