Dogs and coyotes can be found throughout the Mojave, typically wherever humans are traveling.Loading screen

Coyotes are creatures found in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Biology[edit | edit source]

Similar to dogs, coyotes do not appear to have been visibly altered after the Great War.

Gameplay attributes[edit | edit source]

Coyotes are very territorial and will attack the Courier if they come in close proximity to their group, unless the Courier has the Animal Friend perk. Coyotes are usually found in desolate areas of the Mojave, especially in caves and caverns, typically in packs of up to three or four. They are slightly stronger than dogs, but do comparable damage.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Regular coyotes are the most common of the coyote family. They can be found in almost every corner of the map, but primarily along the I-15 and Goodsprings cave. One group can be found down the hill from the entrance to the hidden supply cave, and another group can be found close to the canyon wreckage entrance.

CoyoteFNV.png

The offspring of a coyote. They are smaller and weaker than normal coyotes, on par with radroaches in terms of durability. The pups generally stay close to their den mother who is a much larger threat. If the Courier gets too close, they will attack along with their parents.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Coyote den mothers and alpha males are significantly larger than they would appear in real life.
  • Coyotes will always growl before they attack.
  • Coyotes will growl when approached, but will not attack if the Courier backs away, even if noticed.
  • All coyotes share the same model with grayish coats, differing only in size, with pups being smallest, coyotes slightly larger and den mothers being the largest.
  • Coyotes are friendly to the Courier if they have chosen the Animal Friend perk.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Coyotes appear in Fallout: New Vegas.
