Fallout: New Vegas locations project
The cave's inside
Nopah Cave is quite small. It has a narrow passage way leading to an empty chamber. The chamber branches off into other chambers, each with a moderate amount of fire geckos (typically 7 to 9). In the back of the left chamber, there is a dead super mutant master lying face down with a badly damaged Fat Man in his inventory. However, there are no mini nukes to be found in the entire cave. There are several skeletons in the cave, including one near the super mutant with a bag named "Adventurer's Pack" which contains some loot. Also seen is the severed head and chest of a man. An interesting point: when you come in the cave, immediately to the left is an empty small cavern, and on the wall (if you look straight into it) is a frowny-face :(
- A Fat Man, 12 .50 MG rounds,3 C-4 plastic explosives, 2 incendiary grenades, a Plasma and pulse grenade are located on the body of the super mutant master.
Nopah Cave appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
- Like other areas that experience the same glitch, entering the area with companions such as Rex will sometimes make them appear in the middle of a group of enemies, thereby possibly being overwhelmed and killed. It is recommended that you save before entering.
- It's possible for the super mutant master to respawn after 3 days (with another Fat Man and other random loot) and only have 1 health block. The geckos inside the cave will not respawn but those outside the cave will.

These ancient caverns were once famed for trilobite fossils, but Fire Geckos roam here now."
