The mercenary camp is an unmarked location in Fallout: New Vegas, north of Horowitz farmstead.


This small camp is hidden in the cliffs of the northern mountains and used as a base by a group of mercenaries. One of the mercenaries is armed with the unique YCS/186 Gauss rifle a complete set of reinforced combat armor mark 1 or mark 2.

With Wild Wasteland enabled, however, the mercenaries are replaced by a squad of aliens, deposited by a UFO hovering above the camp. Their captain carries the unique alien blaster. The two unique weapons are mutually exclusive.
