XENON1T is a direct dark matter search experiment, running at Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso. Most of its subsystems have been designed to quickly upgrade to a larger detector, XENONnT, which aims to improve the spin-independent WIMP sensitivity by another order of magnitude. In order to mitigate the background from radiogenic neutrons, emitted by the detector materials, we foresee an additional detector, the Neutron Veto (NV). One option is that the NV will be made of Gd-doped liquid scintillator installed right outside of the Cryostat. In this talk I will present the results of the MC simulations of the XENONnT NV.
