Powder Gangers are packs of convicted criminals from the New California Republic who roam the Mojave Wasteland.

As the NCR expanded eastward into Nevada they took over the old Southern Nevada Correctional Facility in Jean, turning it into the NCR Correctional Facility. As explained by powder gangers, no correcting was done - only manual labor. When the majority of NCR troops guarding the facility were called away to patrol the Colorado River, the convicts decided to take things into their own hands and took over the facility using improvised weapons and explosives made from small amounts of dynamite they had stashed away.
