Deathclaws are an enormously large, agile, and strong species of mutant chameleons created through genetic engineering. They are substantially larger than a human, and have large and dangerous claws. However, due to mutation, they have lost their camouflage ability.

Background

Main article: Deathclaw

The deathclaws were originally created before the Great War by the United States Armed Forces in order to replace humans during high-risk close-combat search-and-destroy missions. They were Jackson's Chameleons genetically modified with the DNA of various other species.

Notes

  • The very high DT (20) of deathclaws means powerful ammo types are needed to even begin to harm them, such as .308 and .44 Magnum.
  • There are also Alpha Male Deathclaws and Mother Deathclaws. Additionally, across the Colorado River, mid-way between the Hoover Dam and the southern edge of the map, a colony of Deathclaws can be found. There is a mother Deathclaw and a Legendary Deathclaw in that colony (see Deathclaw promontory).
  • Deathclaws have very keen eyesight and can even see enemies that are cloaked with devices such as stealth-boys.
  • Focus on crippling the legs of Deathclaws to make battles much easier.
  • A group of Blind Deathclaws can be seen across the train tracks, from Sloan. They are usually accompanied by two or more Young deathclaws and normal Deathclaws.
  • Deathclaws in New Vegas have a DT of 15 and their attacks almost completely ignore armor so the use of armor piercing rounds at long range is a must for safely taking them down, engaging them on their own terms in close quarters is SUICIDE!
  • While Deathclaws are no longer randomly encountered like in Fallout 3 they have a tendency to gather in colonies of 10 or more so if you see one expect there to be more nearby.
