The Four Horsemen of the Post Apocalypse is a special encounter in Fallout Tactics.

In this encounter, the player character will find the four horsemen, War, Pestilence, Death, and Famine, all gathered together around a small camp in the middle of the wasteland. They are initially non-hostile and exchange dialogue with one another.


  • It is possible to attack them, but it's a long fight for very little XP. Each Horseman starts at 14,332 HP.
  • The Horsemen's HP can reach 100,030 if you choose to heal them.
  • All of the Four Horsemen have "Almost Dead" health status.
  • None of the Four Horsemen carry any equipment and will only attack you with their fists if provoked.
  • Four characters were cut from this encounter, Apathy, Care, Give, and Lethargy.
  • Nearly all of their dialogues are about them complaining about a specific consequence of the war. Ironically, these all relate to their specific purpose, such as Death complaining about how many people died.
