    Nellis Air Force Base is the base of operations for the Boomers faction. Nellis Air Force Base was hit by multiple atomic bombs during the Great War of 2077. After the bombs hit all the people living there were killed and the base was left with a lethal amount of radiation. After the Boomers left Vault 34 in 2231in search of a new base of operations, they stumbled across Nellis Air Force Base. When the Boomers tested the radiation of the base they found it to still be radiated, but not to lethal levels. The Boomers use the base defenses to protect themselves and keep any outsiders out.
