Fallout 76 is out now, after having been in a private beta for the last couple of weeks or so. It was officially revealed at Bethesda's E3 Press Conference, where everything from release date, to info on building mechanics were given. One of the new changes in Fallout 76 is its new wildlife. It's set in West Virginia this time, which means that Fallout 76 is filled with all new creatures. We've gathered them all in this guide. We now know the names of most of them, while the rest we just have images to go by.
For everything else on Fallout 76, head over to our Fallout 76 Guides Hub. You'll find everything from tips and tricks to gameplay details and advice on which weapons to use.
Fallout 76 Creatures, Wildlife and Enemies
There a a lot of new nasties to contend with in Fallout 76, many of which were shown off during Bethesda's E3 2018 Press Conference. You'll find images for them below, and while a couple of them have had their names revealed already, some are still a mystery. We'll indicate which names are official, as well as which ones we've simply taken a guess at.
The Grafton Monster (actual name) is featured prominently in the Fallout Reveal trailer and seems to be one of the most formidable creatures in Fallout 76. It has huge arms and very little else, using them to bludgeon everything in its path.
The Scorchbeast (actual name) might just be about to steal the "coolest looking Fallout creature" title away from the Deathclaw. It's essentially a dragon, spitting blue waves of energy from its mouth and taking off into the air at a moments notice. In the trailer it is seen attacking a settlement, with a team of wastelanders just barely able to take it down.
Fallout 76 is actually set before all the other games in the series. As such, there are no Super Mutant in the game as they haven't been created yet. What we see instead is some sort of variant Mutant, significantly smaller and more humanoid than their super brethren.
After some a lot of rumors and speculation, we can confirm that Mothman is indeed in Fallout 76. The brief glimpse we get here highlights the bug creature's huge orange eyes, standing out against the darkness around it. Players are starting to post their encounters with Mothman, and it's truly terrifying in motion.
This crone-like creature is called the Wendigo. It's definitely a humanoid creature of some sort, and is one of the most unpleasant creatures we've seen in a Fallout game so far.
If you were ever creeped out by a Rad-Scorpion, you're definitely not going to like this one. It's an irradiated giant wasp of sorts, carrying a hive of regular wasps on its back. This means that not only will the player have to fight the giant wasp creature, they will also have to contend with swarms of insects too.
This hunch-backed creature (we don't know its real name yet) is another humanoid creature. It is seen in the trailer standing menacingly covered by a cloak. It is also wearing some sort of gas mask, and is guarding a mine area.
It's not just humanoid enemies you'll have to contend with in Fallout 76, as there are plenty of dangerous robots too. We see one kind of robot in the trailer, called the Liberator MKII(real name). They seem to attack in groups and walk around on spider-like legs. They shoot energy beams as well.
This creature seems to be a mutant of sorts, one with spikes protruding from its back. It's most notable feature is its long tongue, which it uses to attack the player at a distance. The one in the trailer is seen attacking in a city area, using its two large forelegs to move quickly across the ground. It also has a truly amazing name—the Snallygaster
The Scorched are a new race of enemy in Fallout 76. They are essentially more intelligent Feral Ghouls who have been infected with a sort of disease. They have green crystals growing out of their skin, and can carry weapons. They'll likely be the most common enemy you'll run into, but they're pretty easy to take down.
