As you were delivering a package to the New Vegas strip, a strange man stops you and captures you, only for you to be shot in the head. He leaves you for dead and takes your package. You awaken in a clinic in the town of Goodsprings, where a doctor heals you and helps you get back on your feet. You have to defeat this strange man and have him pay for his crimes and find out what's in the package.. or betray the residents of Goodsprings and other small towns for their money and property... it's all up to you.

The design for the NCR Veteran Ranger armour (which is seen on the original box art and throughout a lot of promotional art) comes from a description from Fallout 1. The description is of a character "wearing a gas mask and brown leather duster". This in itself was a reference to an older game called "Wasteland" in which the player character is a Ranger in an apocalyptic environment. See more
The Marksman Carbine has a 30-round STANAG magazine but in-game it is shown as only having 24 rounds in the magazine. See more
Mr. New Vegas
Refugees at Bitter Springs are giving startling accounts of the Legate, known as Lanius, who is said to be Caesar's top field commander. One refugee told us that "The Legate took over an *under-performing* squad of troops by beating its commander to death in full view of everyone." The Legate then ordered a tenth of his own troops to be killed by the other nine-tenths.
