The Viper Gang ambush is an unmarked location in the Mojave Wasteland.


Viper Gang ambush does not have a map marker, so there is no way of fast-traveling to its location. However, when following the east road out of Nipton, you'll get there. Other map markers nearby include Caesar's Legion Safehouse and Wolfhorn Ranch.

Once you get in the vicinity of the ambush, you'll be spotted by a few members of the Viper Gang. They will start attacking immediately. Note that some of the Viper Gang will be up on the cliff, and can be quite hard to reach. Furthermore, there are a few wrecked cars, but nothing more. Up the road some more, there will be a few more Vipers and their camp site a little ways to the left and in the mountain with moderate loot.

Notable loot


  • There are a few active frag mines on the floor hidden under road cones.
  • One of the viper gang members may have a grenade rifle, this can be dangerous as there are mines and a explodable car and truck.
  • Once the Vipers at the ambush location and the ones near their camp have been dealt with, bark scorpions (around 9) will infest their camp in the mountain.


Viper Gang ambush appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
