Fallout NV ~ Gobi Campaign Scout Rifle


How to get the unique sniper rifle; The Gobi Campaign Scout Rifle


Fallout New Vegas is nearly 4 years old, and I’m well aware that the more hardcore of fans have already stumbled upon this weapon, especially since it is among the easiest of the unique items to find. However, I am a huge fan of the Fallout title, and decided I wanted to help some of you out. This is my second Steam guide, you can check out my first in the Fallout 3 community, titled Tranquility Lane Failsafe. Even if you already know everything about this weapon, but just happened to walk into my guide, please leave a rating and let me know what you thought. If this becomes something helpful, I’ll continue the “series”.

That being said, let’s get started.

Obtaining the Weapon

The Gobi Campaign Scout Rifle can be obtained in a chest in The Sniper’s Nest. The Sniper’s Nest, on map, is directly left of Cottonwood Cove. In Game, you can fast travel to Cottonwood Cove, turn around, and begin walking up the road. The Sniper’s Nest is slightly rightside the road, up the hill a ways. Once you make your way to The Sniper’s Nest, you’ll see the grey strongbox lying on the ground, next to a bed mat and some other containers. The strongbox has a Very Hard lock on it, so you will need a Lockpick skill of 100 to open the chest. After picking the lock, you can simply loot the rifle inside.


As always, feedback, both positive and negative, help and encourage me to make more. Even if you knew how to find this weapon before reading my guide, I would appreciate your opinions.

I apologize if I made any gramatical errors or came out as unclear.

Thank you for reading.
