Bloatfly gland is a junk item in Fallout 4.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

These glands are part of a bloatfly, a mutated Tabanus genera of biting horse fly. The unique gland enables the bloatfly to balance and maintain speed despite its size.[1] The gland itself may be toxic to consume, as Doctor Duff warns the Sole Survivor not to chew on them, having previously caused one of her students to become ill.[2]

Crafting[edit | edit source]

The bloatfly gland can be broken down into its individual components for use in crafting:

Bloatfly gland (1)

  1. The Sole Survivor: "Sign me up."
    Duff: "You're going to go out, and find a Bloatfly Gland. You see, the oversized Bloatfly of today evolved from an earlier species of smaller fly. Radioactive adaptation has resulted in a unique gland that enables it to balance and maintain speed despite its size. So what do you say? Ready to go out and dissect one?"
    (Doctor Duff's dialogue)
  2. The Sole Survivor: "Get the Bloatfly Gland. Got it."
    Duff: "Remember, bring the gland back in one piece. Oh, and don't chew on it. One of the students got horribly sick because of that mistake."
