Where to find all Ulysses’ Logs in Fallout: New Vegas

Warning: This article contains very minor spoilers for the final quest of the DLC Lonesome Road.

Ulysses’ Logs are collectible items found in Fallout: New Vegas’ fourth DLC- Lonesome Road. They can be played back after being collected, revealing some information about both Ulysses, the main antagonist of the DLC, and the plot of all of the previous DLC and even some of the base game.

Collecting all of the logs also completes the challenge “Ulysses’ Odyssey”, granting 100XP and allows you to use Ulysses’ own words against him in the final confrontation of the DLC.

There are a total of 6 logs that can be found throughout the DLC. They are primarily found near the path that the main quest follows. They can be gathered at any time and in any order, however you need to have all of them before the point of no return in the DLC to make use of them in the ending.

The location of the logs are listed in order of main story progression.

Log 1: Hopeville Loading Station

To find the first log, make your way to the Hopeville Missile Base Loading Station which is located south-east of the Hopeville Missile Base exit where Ulysses first contacts you.

Log 2: Marked Men Supply Outpost

The second log is located in a hidden area between the High Road entrance and the Marked Men Supply Outpost, both of which are still within Hopeville.

Once you find the spot, you’ll have to pick the lock on a chain link gate. The difficulty of the lock depends on your level. If you can’t pick the lock, a key is available.

To find the key, head to the Marked Men Supply Outpost and look for an overturned orange truck. Inside, you’ll find the Warehouse Stash Key which unlocks gate.

Keep in mind that the following area is covered in Satchel Charge traps which detonate almost immediately and can easily kill you instantly. Keep an eye out for them.

After that, you’ll have to jump over to the next building over.

If you are approaching from the highway, you’ll have to take a right off of the highway first, and climb up a set of boulders that will lead you to an elevated campsite.
