Fallout New Vegas snow globe guide

Fallout New Vegas snow globes are seven little trinkets that are incredibly hard to find, due to their small size. If you can grab them however, they can either be displayed in your home or sold to Mr. House for a lot of caps. 

Obviously, though, finding them is the hard part which is why we have a list of where all of these Snow Globes can be found in Fallout New Vegas. Of course we can’t do anything about the mutant wildlife, super mutants and raiders but heck, if we did everything for you then you’d never learn.

If you need more help then we have out Fallout New Vegas unique weapons guide and some help on what Fallout New Vegas companions are best to bring along with you. 

Good Spring Snow Globe

The very first Snow Globe is found in the very first town in the game. You will need to make your way to the Good Springs Cemetary, up a hill north-northeast of town. Head towards the water tower while looking to your left and you will see this sitting in front of a small, rectangular, tombstone.

Mount Charleston Snow Globe

The trip to get this snow globe is incredibly perilous. Jacobstown is located in the far northwest part of the map. If you look at your world map it is in what appears to be a crater to the west of Westside. The only path there is along the road that winds up into the mountains so don’t bother trying to mountain climb your way to a shortcut. The trip is only made more perilous by the dozens of Cazadors and Fiends along the way. 

Once you actually get there it’s a simple matter of entering the lodge and grabbing it off the desk right in front of you. But do have fun even getting here in the first place.

Hoover Dam Snow Globe

Reaching the Hoover Dam is tricky but it gets a lot simpler if you follow the main quest until you reach Boulder City. From there leave town by hugging the rock face to the southeast. Keep moving that way and you will find a semi-hidden road that takes you through the rocks to the dam itself. Enter the first door you see, going into the Visitor’s Center, where this will be sitting on the desk in front of you.

Fort Mormon Snow Globe

For this globe, as well as the next few, you’re going to need to make your way to New Vegas. Enter via the Freeside East or North gate (East is easier to reach, North is closer to the target) and look for the building that looks… well like an old fort. If you don’t know what that looks like it’s a square shaped building made out of brick with a flag flying overhead. It stands out.

Once you find the fort enter through the large wooden gate and look to the southeast wall. Here you will see a tower with a door you can enter. Go on inside and head up the stairs to find Julie Farkas’ room. On top of a bookcase on the southeast wall is your snow globe.

Vault 21 Hotel Snow Globe

Getting this snow globe simply requires you to head down into the Vault 21 Hotel near the southern end of the New Vegas Strip. You will have to head into the gift shop and use the door at the back to go down into the Vault itself. Take a left when you reach the recreation room with the guests hanging out and go through the door there into the hallway. Continue straight ahead and go to the second door on your left hand side. This is Sara’s locked bedroom – simply pick the lock and get the snow globe off the bed side table between the two beds.

Lucky 38 Casino Snow Globe

For this globe you’re going to need to get into the Lucky 38 Casino. So long as you haven’t destroyed Victor he will inform you that Mr. House wants to speak with you when you arrive in on The Strip so that’s your way in. Once inside go speak to Mr. House and agree to help him out with his quest.

Now speak to Victor again to gain access to the Presidential Suite and, more importantly, the Cocktail Lounge. Step inside, walk to the right behind the counter until you see the second cash register. Behind the register is the snow globe.

Hoooo-boy, this is a doozy. When you try to approach the base artillery will begin to rain down from the heavens to try turning you into a gooey smear. This can be approached in a number of ways but almost all of them involve running like a little girl, hiding from some of the bombardments and then getting to the base. Once you reach the gate they’ll stop firing but the trick is getting there.

What feels like the easiest way to do this is to hug the rock wall on your left and move as fast as possible. There are a few spots you can hunker down in and wait out the bombardment. Your followers will get blown to ribbons so don’t let them follow you here, leave them up the road. Simply wait until a bombardment stops before moving forward to the next safe spot. By simply continuing to the northwest you can reach the gate rather quickly.

After speaking to Mother Pearl you can finally explore this place. We need to head to Nellis Boomer Museum which is located just to the right of the door, sitting on a table out in the open. It’s really more about making it here in the first place.
