Lorsque le joueur s'approche trop d'un nid de fangeux, environ la moitié des œufs se secouent brièvement puis éclosent, révélant ainsi ces petites créatures agressives ressemblant à des crabes. La reine fangeux peut également engendrer plusieurs de ces nouveau-nés pour attaquer le joueur. Leur force de combat est pratiquement égale à celle des radcafards.
Il s'agit de fangeux de couleur verte et de faible constitution que l'on peut rencontrer à de faibles niveaux. Ils peuvent être observés mélangés à des fangeux plus forts à des niveaux plus élevés. Leur viande est plus saine une fois cuite que la viande de fangeux ordinaire.
La variante standard du fangeux. Plus sombre en apparence que les fangeux à carapace molle, il est également plus résistant et inflige plus de dégâts de mêlée. Ce fangeux est donc plus fort que sa première variante, et est probablement plus ancien.
A more powerful variant of the mirelurk that may be encountered commonly as the player character levels up. It has double the health of a softshell mirelurk and deals significantly more damage per hit, making them potentially challenging opponents for those that are poorly-equipped.
This type of mirelurk has mutated from the local lobster population. They are significantly more resilient than regular mirelurks and gain the ability to spit acid at its enemies, as well as more powerful attacks. While the common mirelurk is vulnerable to headshots, the head of the mirelurk hunter is much stronger.Modèle:Citation needed A few can be found at Spectacle Island, and others may spawn in the tunnels during The Big Dig.
A powerful type of mirelurk that can be encountered in any mirelurk-infested area, such as Salem, if the player character's level is high enough. It is much more resilient than the razorclaw, and is more powerful in combat.
An irradiated variant of the mirelurk which is increasingly encountered as the player character levels up. Due to the steady absorption of large quantities of radiation, these mirelurks glow with its superabundance; their undersides are positively luminescent and a notable buildup of radiation in its eyestalks gives them a distinct feature even among "glowing" créatures.
Glowing mirelurks inflict radiation damage on top of the ballistic damage. This variant has a considerable amount of health (half of that of a super mutant behemoth), and deals considerable amount of damage in combat, making them challenging opponents for low-level player characters.
Mirelurk hunters that have been born afflicted with albinism, giving them a distinguishable pinkish-white skin color signature to albino créatures. While their attacks are indifferent from that of a regular mirelurk hunter, they are protected by higher resistances. They, as with most albino créatures, are very rare and appear only by chance.
Mirelurk kings do not resemble the crab-like mirelurks, instead of appearing to be heavily mutated frogs based on sounds they make and the webbing between their fingers and toes. They are very fast and can easily kill a low-level player character in seconds. Unlike the other mirelurks, they have a ranged sonic projectile attack that is particularly effective at crippling the target's head. Mirelurk kings have less health than glowing mirelurks, mirelurk hunters or mirelurk queens, although they are much more agile and efficient at long range. One can be found in a room alongside power armor, a few tunnels into The Big Dig. Another one can be located behind Rook family house on the shore. Up to four can be found at Cutler Bend, and a few may be encountered at Spectacle Island. Another can be found inside a crypt to the north of Electrical Hobbyist's Club underneath the skybridge. He will appear and attack after taking the lone mirelurk egg.
The mirelurk queen is a rarely seen mirelurk variant, considerably larger and more dangerous than her offspring, and inflicts significantly more physical and radiation damage on the player character. Her arrival is announced with a great roar. In addition to her claws, she possesses a ranged acidic spittle that deals damage over time to anyone caught in it. Once combat is initiated, the queen will occasionally eject a barrage of eggs that spawn a wave of hatchlings, an ability that is considered a grenade attack and therefore comes with the respective warning Icônes on the screen. She benefits from the same resistance as the regular mirelurks, featuring an incredibly thick shell but very soft skin.
Subsequent respawns may have her either already emerged and idling in her area, or else submerged if her first spawning-in is triggered by killing nearby mirelurks. The Sole Survivor notes her presence (as well as that of hidden kings and hunters) by sneaking to triangulate her location, and then triggering her appearance with an explosive or a ground slam from power armor.
Mirelurk queens are considered giant créatures in-game, therefore, killing them counts towards the achievement ...The Harder They Fall.
While the mirelurk queens may seem similar to the common "horseshoe crab" variant of mirelurk at first glance, the mirelurk queen has a full crustacean telson, unlike that which the horseshoe crab has.

Variante de Far Harbor
The most powerful type of the base mirelurk genus in terms of both resistances and damage potential, Bloodrage mirelurks were added to the game with the Far Harbor add-on. They have very dark carapaces, glowing red eyes and also emit a baleful reddish glow from their underside.
Despite their power and threat potential, killing a bloodrage mirelurk awards significantly less experience than most of its lower-ranking variants.
The Nukalurk queen can only be found outside the Nuka-Cola bottling plant. She is a unique version of the mirelurk queen and has a blue glow due to the strontium isotope from Nuka-Cola Quantum. She has a large health pool, but when the player character finally kills her she drops queen Nukalurk meat.
