The New Vegas Steel is a run down steel works located outside Westside, in the heart of Fiends territory.


This automated steel factory still operates in an automated test mode two hundred and four years after the Great War.[1][2]


Inside are two crazed Mr. Handies, three Mr. Steels and a dead Fiend. The computer on the left in the entrance room shows that a factory automation test has been running for 204 years.

Notable loot


  • The glowing steel is extremely hot and can harm the player if touched. Jumping into the slag bucket is an instant kill regardless of the player's current Damage Threshold.
  • A Fiend may be found in the building alive, but with low health.
  • The Mr. Steels found inside respawn every three days.
  • The robots don't work and the steel never cools down.
  • Killing the Crazed Mr. Handy robots does not count towards the Man-Machine Interface challenge. Killing the Mr. Steel robots does since these are based off the Mr. Gutsy type.

  • The "Lucky 38 Executive Override" option on the terminal on the second level was originally supposed to be part of The Moon Comes Over the Tower, but that section of the quest was apparently cut. See that quest's notes section for details.

New Vegas Steel appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.


  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Whenever you fast-travel or exit this location, the game heavily lags. Going inside the building and exiting through different doors does not appear to fix this, nor will walking away from the location. The only way is to either reload a previous save or fast-travel when enemies aren't present.

    Deep in Fiend Territory along the southwestern side of New Vegas, this steel plant still operates with its robot staff. Note the nearby access to South Vegas Ruins [Zone 2E]."
