The Nipton general store or Nipton trading post is a building in Nipton, located in the Mojave Wasteland. [1]


The General Store has two floors, a commercial and private one. The ground floor contains the trading post proper, with Boxcars slowly withering away on the chair with broken legs, eating what food he could salvage from the stores. Upstairs is the owner's apartment, behind an Easy-locked door. It contains a safe.

Talking to Boxcars starts Booted.

Notable loot


Nipton general store appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

  1. Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.391: "The Legion have left their mark on this store, and the Powder Ganger who had taken it over. Scattered Food is everywhere, and the Ganger named Boxcars is so unpleasant, you're shocked the Legion didn't string him up too. You can ask him about the Lottery (he came second, so he lived, but at a cost). The mayor (who's been writing Journal entries found in the locations nearby) didn't get off so lightly. You can start Side Quest: Booted by agreeing to help the Powder Ganger hostages who weren't crucified."
    "You can give him a Med-X to Boxcars if you have one. He's as thankful as you'd expect."
    "Check the counter for a Magazine. The upstairs of the store, accessed via the door behind the counter [Easy], leads to a wrecked apartment room, and another Magazine, as well as a floor safe to check."
