  • Can be found in front of the deathclaw nest during the quest The Devil's Due when returning the egg to its nest, northwest of Lynn Woods. It will be directly in front of the nest. After approaching the nest with the egg during the quest, leaving the area without returning the egg will cause the deathclaw to become hostile.
  • Rarely dropped by raiders.
