There are many different kinds of enemies in Fallout: New Vegas. Take a look at some of the best ones you can find in the game.
In Fallout: New Vegas, the world is harsh and dangerous. A lot of the enemies want to eat, melt, beat, and otherwise harm people in general. Raiders who are hooked to chemicals and carry chainsaws, golf clubs, and flamethrowers, as well as coyote-rattlesnake monsters that can disappear, are just some of the many enemies that players will face.
People who aren’t careful could get hit in the head with a claw or a gun barrel. When an enemy finally comes up against a player, some of them might not be that dangerous. In Fallout: New Vegas, though, other enemies will definitely fight, especially if you go up against them without being ready or when you’re not as strong.

Some gamers who have played New Vegas may have chosen the fastest way to get to the city in the distance that the game is named after. These players would get a rude surprise when they are attacked by a huge group of Cazadors who will wipe them out completely. This is a clever way for the game to tell the player that they shouldn’t go this way. Instead, they should take the longer road to get to know the world before going into this famous city.
It’s already very hard to deal with regular cazadors, but the giant version is even worse. These changed bugs are gross, and if a player isn’t ready, they can quickly drain their HP. Those who are Courier should stay away from these enemies and eliminate them with strong weapons if they don’t want to lose.

When playing New Vegas, centaurs are pretty scary enemies, and players should think twice before going up against them. Not only do centaurs look scary, but if the player isn’t ready, they can attack in groups and take away their health. Ranged attacks are the best way to eliminate these enemies, but players should be careful of the radioactive spit projectile, which can do a lot of damage.
For those who thought the normal centaurs were scary enough, there is an even scarier form of them called Moe that can be found in a plain hole on the way to Black Mountain. During the quest Still in the Dark, players must track down numerous Brotherhood of Steel paladins that he and his group slaughtered.
Giant Yao Guai
- Level: 32
- HP: 475
Honest Hearts is one of the many great add-ons that came out for Fallout: New Vegas and helped make the game one of the best Fallout games ever. People who buy this DLC will face a lot of tough and unique enemies. One of them, the yao guai, is a mutant bear that is especially dangerous and can be very scary to fight.
If you think this bear is scary, the giant yao guai will make your heart jump into your mouth. This fierce enemy doesn’t spare any victims, and it can be scary to fight if players don’t keep their distance. Every player should always have a long-range tool that they can hit accurately and do a lot of damage with.

A lot of people think that Old World Blues is one of the best DLCs ever made for video games. The area around Big MT is full of big dangers. The feared Cazadores that live in the Mojave Wasteland use the area as a training ground.
The Cazadore here is called Specimen 73 and is one of the best in the game. Before even thinking about taking this enemy down, players should make sure they have a lot of weapons and the best armor they can find.

Radscorpions are some of the hardest monsters in the Fallout games, and this one in New Vegas is no different. Low-level players who don’t know what they’re doing can be wiped out by these monsters.
Radscorpion Queen is the hardest form of this monster that players can face in the game. There is no doubt that this monster is the biggest Radscorpion in New Vegas. It will wipe out any players who aren’t ready to face it.
Super Mutant Master
- Level: 12
- HP: 360
One of the most famous races in Fallout is the Super Mutant. They are usually enemies, but in Fallout: New Vegas, there are a few that are friends. The Super Mutant Master is the strongest type of Super Mutant in the game.
These scary enemies are very good at fighting with large weapons like sledgehammers, miniguns, and LMGs. They need to be very careful when they’re up against this enemy, because if they make a mistake, their health bars will be gone in an instant.
Giant Evolved Centaur
- Level: 18
- HP: 220
If you’ve already met Moe, just wait for this enemy. People who are centaurs are some of the scariest enemies in the Fallout games. This is always a scary sight to see these mutant monsters, and they look even scarier now that Fallout: New Vegas has changed the graphics.
Because of this, it’s clear why the Giant Evolved Centaur can be so tough in the game. Many Fallout fans think that this huge monster should be in more than one place in the game in order to be fair.
Ghost Of She
- Level: 35
- HP: 550
It was a lot of fun to explore Zion Canyon and talk to different groups in Honest Hearts. But threats like the yao guai made a lot of people question why they were even going on this trip in the first place.
During the quest Rite of Passage, you’ll meet one of the most interesting yao guai. When players are high on drugs, they meet a special enemy called Ghost of She. This enemy is covered in flames and can copy itself, which makes the Courier clearly imagine a lot more than they need to.

If you talk about Cazadores, Fallout: New Vegas fans will start to cry. Cazadores, which are changed tarantula hawk wasps that were used in trials, are tough enemies to fight by yourself.
