Fog crawlers are creatures in Fallout 76.

Background

This section is transcluded from Fog crawler. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

Fog crawlers are large, mutated creatures, named for their presence in foggy or cloudy coastal regions and islands, where they use the environment to hunt.[Non-game 1] The fog crawlers of costal Maine are the result of the radioactive fog around Far Harbor altering the local shrimp population.[1] While the fog crawlers in Appalachia were created as a result of the explosion of the Vault 94 G.E.C.K.. This explosion coated the area that would become The Mire with a highly radioactive fog, and rapidly altered the local plant and animal life.[2]

Characteristics

Biology

This section is transcluded from Fog crawler. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

Fog crawlers are large, mutated crustaceans, that live in the deep Fog for which they are named, and are seldom encountered outside of the deadly mist.[Non-game 1][1] Fog crawlers are known to make deep, booming vocalizations as an indicator of their presence. They are also among the strongest and most tenacious foes encountered in their respective areas, combining excellent protection with a generous health pool and the ability to attack at range.

Gameplay attributes

The fog crawler's main attacks are slicing with its arms and jabbing with its head. It also has an attack where it jumps up and slams back into the ground, dealing damage to anything caught in the area of effect. This ground slam can deal damage even to targets well above the crawler's height level. Unlike mirelurk queens or super mutant behemoths, fog crawlers lack any form of ranged attack. If their legs are crippled, they will move slower.

  1. 1.0 1.1 Creatures: Fog Crawler: "Fog crawlers are aptly named. They inhabit coastal regions and islands, predominantly with low cloud and fog banks that they use to hunt. Their crawling, shambling gait when not enraged lets them move through the surf or into woods with ease, but swiftly accelerate to pounce on prey and enemies. Woe betide the unwary hunter who thinks they are safe because of the Fog Crawler’s apparent grazing; their explosive bouts of speed will put them in danger before they have time to realise the threat.
    These monsters tend to be solitary beasts, stalking isolated but verdant regions as apex predators. Even the mighty Deathclaw keeps its distance. The Fog Crawler’s speed and dexterity mean it is more than a match for anything in its path, leaping and slashing at what will soon become its next meal…"
