There are Blood Eagles here, so I need you to be brutal. Remember, they chose this life. They will show no mercy to you, ever.Beckett

The Blood Eagles are a brutal raider faction who appeared in Appalachia in 2103. Due to their unnecessary violence and merciless systems of internal control, the Blood Eagles were not among the gangs who formed the coalition of Crater Raiders, and the two groups are hostile to each other.

Background[]

The Blood Eagles' origins are somewhat conflicted, and a source of rumor among Appalachian wastelanders. Some claim that they originated from old biker gangs, with no desires to make friends with anyone in the wasteland.[1] However, Beckett, a former member of the gang, says that they were formed by a tattered group of con-men and other criminals. Soon, a malevolent clique formed within the gang and quickly siezed control from the inside out. These ruthless opportunists still rule as the gang's current leadership.[2][3]

Since then, they have become a cruel and sadistic army of raiders who are the largest hostile force in Appalachia as of 2103, staking a claim on most of the Ash Heap, Savage Divide, and Cranberry Bog. Repurposing many of the old raider camps littering the region, their massive numbers and high-tech weaponry make them a consistent thorn in the side of everyone who isn't with them.

They often prey on Blue Ridge Caravan Company trading parties coming through Big Bend Tunnel, and will do anything to stop them from coming through their territory.

Dagger, the leader of various Blood Eagles

By 2103, a gang led by a woman named Dagger had moved into a den in the Mire, and they began extorting Jennie Brown's village for supplies.

In another incident, a group led by another woman, Tally Lang, stormed into Vault 96, trailing some Hellcats and looking to loot the vault. The group included Needles, Eightball and Dillo. Their actions led to the death of Woods and many mercenaries. Tally's group accidentally became locked in.

In 2104, the Rust Eagles began holding gladiatorial combat in the Metal Dome. Vault Dwellers and Brotherhood warriors willingly participated in exchange for supplies.

In early 2105, some Blood Eagles moved into a shack in the far northeast corner of Appalachia, where they appear to be domesticating mirelurks.[4] They also repelled an attack by burrowing mole miners within the deserted mine beneath the Crosshair.

Culture[]

The Blood Eagles are othered by the coalition of Crater Raiders due to their propensity for hyperviolence. They revel in violence and bloodshed, and generally attack on sight, with little regard for their own safety,[5] as laid out in their gang code.

Heirarchy and competition[]

Any Eagle can climb up the hierarchy by formally challenging more higher ranking members in a game of their choosing. These games are taken seriously, even if the game of choice is an actual tabletop game,[6] and no cheating will be tolerated. A "best 2 out of 3" rule determines the winner for non-lethal games. If the loser is the higher ranking member, they must step down willingly or they will be executed if still alive.[7]

They are led by a triumvirate of three powerful raider leaders: The Blood, the Eye, and the Claw; this allows the Eagles to survive if one, or even two of their leaders are killed, as there will always be the last of the trio alive to rebuild. The rank of Blood, Eye, or Claw are earned and override the specific names of any leader. Thanks to the anarchic nature of their gang, leaders are often challenged and rarely have long lifespans.[8]

Recruitment and abuse[]

They recruit members through capitalizing on their addictions. They will actively monitor chem addicts, offer them a spiked, highly addictive dose of Buffout, and withhold the drug from the victim unless they pledge to join. Sometimes, they'll even capture non-addicts and force them to ingest the pills, just to trap them into their ranks.

Most of the time, members are not in a state of lucidity, on account of all the chems. Those who achieve sobriety cannot enjoy it for long: anyone among the group showing signs of clarity or strong will is in danger of being singled out and publicly tortured, leaving the victim disfigured or dead.

Tactics and strategies[]

They exhibit an unparalleled affinity towards taming and hacking, often using robots and attack dogs to further fill their legion. The entire Watoga Underground robotic security detail was hacked and put under Blood Eagle control, including Assaultrons and Mister Gutsies, and they will regularly send tamed dogs and mongrels into battle as the forward scouts and diversions, while the humans close the gap. Beginning in 2105, they have been seen taming mirelurks.

Blood Eagle camps are equipped with alarm systems, so if a member gets attacked or detects an intruder and manages to reach the alarm to activate it, all Blood Eagles in the camp are alerted and engage the threat until the alarm stops or they lose sight of the target for an extended period of time. The alarm also sends out Blood Eagle attack dogs to engage the intruder as well. Leaders of Blood Eagle camps can sometimes be seen wearing a power armor chassis with unique raider power armor painted in Blood Eagle colors on it.

Lifestyle[]

Blood Eagles generally wear black leather jackets, and many wear facepaint. When idle, they may listen to the radio or play the banjo. A microphone/guitar set-up at Crimson Prospect indicates they also entertain themselves by performing music as a group.

They can be seen butchering radstags for meat at several settlements. Others are more focused on cannibalism.

Interactions with the player character[]

Blood Eagles will always be hostile to everyone and everything, serving as a raider faction throughout the region. It is not currently possible to join the Blood Eagles.

Gameplay attributes[]

Blood Eagles typically ambush their victims at their smaller checkpoints along roads and highways, but may also be found at one of their many strongholds across Appalachia. They are armed with anything from low damage-inducing or slow-firing weapons like pipe guns or hunting rifles to high-tech energy weapons like the Gatling plasma. They will frequently patrol roads looking for unsuspecting Vault Dwellers.

Notable quotes[]

Appearances[]

The Blood Eagles appear only in Fallout 76, introduced in the Wastelanders update and expanded upon in the Steel Dawn and Steel Reign updates.

Behind the scenes[]

The "blood eagle" is a ritual method of execution, detailed in late skaldic poetry. According to the two instances mentioned in the sagas, the victims were placed in a prone position, their ribs severed from the spine with a sharp tool, and their lungs pulled through the opening to create a pair of "wings." This is represented in the emblem used to symbolize the group; their logo consists of a blood-red eagle with a black ribcage on top.

    Meg Groberg: "Heard they originated from some old biker gang, but they ain't nobody's friend. You want a group to be worried about? There's your thugs and murderers."

  2. A Vault Dweller: "How do you think the Blood Eagles ended up the way they are?"
    Beckett: "When the Blood Eagles started out, they were mostly a tattered group of con-artists and criminals, but something changed. Some nasty chem-addicts joined up and took over the gang from within. They had some, uh... radical ideas. Crazy shit. You've seen the results. Out of all this, a few "leaders" appeared. The Blood, The Eye and The Claw. It all happened so fast... no one was able to stop them. And by the time I joined, I was so drugged up, I went right along with it all."
    (Beckett's dialogue)
  3. A Vault Dweller: "So are the Blood Eagles just some other cult?"
    Beckett: "Not at all. They were just... raiders who were destroyed by heavy chem addiction. But... then it wasn't just that. Some of them became incredibly violent. Thoroughly enraged. Before they were just a band of maniacs, and... it was bad, yeah. But this, this is... this is new. This is... This is terrible."
