The Resistance Camp is a location in NieR:Automata. It is the main hub for the player, where they can interact with NPCs, obtain quests, buy and sell gear at vendors and obtain information.


The camp entrance is located southeast of the City Ruins. There is a transporter located inside the camp itself for fast travel. Fences are set up in a defense position, and the camp itself is hidden in a clearing behind some old buildings. The area is actually quite large and extends back to reveal homes and storage facilities.

  • The people residing at the camp change depending on the chapter and events that have taken place.
  • Speaking to Anemone at any time while in the camp adds vocals to the music playing in the background.


  • The Supply Trader who refuses to replace his damaged leg because it is his only remaining original component is a reference to a thought experiment called the Ship of Theseus: the question in both cases is whether the gradual replacement of every part of something eventually causes it to cease to be the original thing, and if so, at what point this occurs.
  • A number of WW2-era German StG 44 assault rifles can be found lying around the camp, along with intact versions of the Broken Firearm rocket launcher caught by fishing. They cannot be used and are simply decoration.
