Behind the scenesEdit

One of the weapons used for this challenges, the switchblade, is a reference to the beginning of the game. If the player selects a high level of strength at the Vig-O-Matic, Doc Mitchell will comment that they "look like they could do deathclaw hunting with a switch."

Deathclaw mothers and alpha males will still count towards the challenge, as well as the adult deathclaws in Quarry Junction and those that fight in The Thorn. [verified]
