Fallout 76 has just been detailed at E3 2018, with a new trailer released showing off new aspects of the game. 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 know the names of a couple of them, while the rest we just have images to go by.

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, the majority 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.
While we don't know the official name of this peculiar creature, it's safe to say that what we've seen so far is pretty spooky. The brief glimpse we get highlights the bug creature's huge orange eyes, standing out against the darkness around it. It's unclear as to what this thing is exactly, but coming across it while walking around at night is definitely not advised.
Again, we don't know the official name of this ghastly creature but it definitely looks to be some sort of crone. 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.
That's every new creature we know about so far in Fallout 76. We'll be updating this guide as we see more of them, and as we learn the official names of each one. For details on how nukes work in Fallout 76, head over to our Fallout 76 Nukes Guide.
