They can be found in the Mariposa Military Base (F2), the Cathedral (Fallout), and several other places. In Fallout New Vegas it is confirmed they will be roaming around the Black Mountain Radio Tower.
Nightkin use better weapons and gear than the standard Super Mutant. The mutants in Fallout and Fallout 2 have heavy metal armor on, complete with a helmet. However, the Nightkin in New Vegas seem to have weaker armor.
In Fallout and Fallout 2 Nightkins wore Stealth Boys. This allowed them to creep up on enemies unnoticed and kill them with ease. There is a downside though, most Nightkin became insane after the original Fallout, because of the prolonged use of a stealth boy.
In Fallout 2 the remaining Nightkin joined the Super Mutant ranks and preyed on Wastelanders without their stealth boys. In Fallout New Vegas, they will return with some type of cloaking device.
