Fallout: New Vegas — Approach to Camp Searchlight

Posted by JungleBoot on October 29, 2010

Camp Searchlight is located east of Wolfhorn Ranch.  It is a community patrolled by a small contingent of NCR soldiers who took it upon themselves to warn travelers to stay out.  The town is crawling with ghouls, feral ghouls, glowing ghouls, and radscropions.  Speak to the Seargent in charge of the patrol to find out what happened here and why the ghouls are dressed like NCR soldiers.

There are two ways to approach the situation:
1.  Go charging in and fight it out.
2.  Take out as many ghouls as possible from a distance (sniping).

Things are easier if you have Boone with you.  He gives you the Spotter perk which highlights enemies in red.  I recommend using a sniper rifle or a modified hunting rifle with a scope.  Both weapons use .308 rounds.  It is also beneficial to modifiy your rifle with a silencer.  Stay outside of town and snipe as many ghouls as possible.  While you are at it, you can snipe any radscorpions that show up.  Once you have reduced the number of ghouls, you may enter the town and activate the turret systems if you have a high enough Science skill.  Don’t forget to put on your radiation suit and take some rad-x.  If you get exposed to too much radiation, visit a doctor and pay 100 caps to be cured.
