Icon cut contentThe following is based on Fallout: New Vegas cut content and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Floater is a creature cut from the final version of Fallout: New Vegas. They appear in game files in name only, using the centaur's assets.

BackgroundEdit

Main article: Floater

Floaters are hostile mutant creatures that likely originated from the FEV-infected flatworms mentioned in the FEV experiment disk, and were later further enhanced by the Master's experiments.

CharacteristicsEdit

BiologyEdit

Through producing and storing noxious gases in their floatation bladders, floaters are able to hover above the ground.

Behind the scenesEdit

Floaters were cut from Fallout: New Vegas due to them being too complex to animate with the limited time and resources Obsidian had to make the game.[1]

ReferencesEdit

  1. I think Floaters are cool critters in the Fallout universe, but, like Centaurs, they have really weird bodies that require unique animation rigs. From an animation perspective, limbless flying things tend to be really cheap (usually), human-like bipeds are cheap, quadrupeds aren’t too bad. Once you start getting into creatures with multiple heads, snake bodies, tentacles, etc., they get really expensive. IIRC, we talked about having Floaters but we just didn’t have the animation time for them.Joshua Sawyer on the Frog Helms Fan Club
