Brahmin are creatures found in the Commonwealth and Nuka-World in 2287.

Background

Brahmin are two-headed cattle that mutated after the Great War. They still provide meat, milk, hide and manual labor. This makes them an integral part of any settlement, as well as the caravans that connect them.

Characteristics

Biology

Brahmin have the appearance of a pre-War cow but are distinguished by their abnormally large udders and two heads. They also have eight stomachs,[1] but otherwise do not differ significantly from their pre-War ancestors. Brahmin bulls, although not seen in any game to date, are said to have four testicles.[2][3] Additional mutations include the growth of several disfigured horns and coloration of the skin. Brahmin and radstags are the only creatures in the Commonwealth to develop a second head.

Gameplay attributes

A brahmin feed trough can be built to attract brahmin to the area. Brahmin will stay close to the feed trough. Brahmin caravans are used by settlers (assigned by the player character) to provide supply lines between various settlements. They drop fertilizer that can be used for growing crops and is an ingredient for Jet, fireworks, explosives, and ammunition.

Locations

Notable brahmin

Notes

  • When actively recruiting for a settlement with a recruitment radio beacon, there is a chance a brahmin will arrive instead of a settler.
    • Settlements can have multiple brahmin.
    • Brahmin will increase settlement food production while also producing fertilizer, a chemistry component that will be placed in the workbench.
    • Wasteland Workshop Brahmin can also be recruited to a settlement by capturing them with a cage. Once released, they will behave exactly the same as any other settlement brahmin.
  • Settlements can be linked by a supply line, which are traveled by a provisioner and a pack brahmin.
  • One of the objects that can be crafted and added to a settlement is the mounted brahmin heads.
  • Kelly will sell a brahmin to the player character for 100 caps. One will need to choose a settlement to send the brahmin to. This can be done multiple times.
  • Brahmin on some occasions may end up inside a pre-existing house or custom-built settlement building. They may block doorways and entries.
  • Some settlement brahmin drop a synth component upon death.
  • If the player character attacks a brahmin in one of their settlements, the settlers will turn hostile towards them. Going away and returning after 24 hours will make the settlers become passive again. As of version 1.8.7, and with all add-ons installed, the player character can kill brahmin in the settlements without any consequences.
    • Killing brahmin gained through cages will still turn settlers hostile towards the player character.
