Detailed walkthrough

Fight and destroy the newly blossomed strangler heart, stationed on a nearby stone outcrop.

When damaged, the heart will close, summoning alternating waves of strangler mirelurks and strangler feral ghouls. While closed, the strangler heart is immune to damage, but re-opens once its minions are defeated. Once it re-opens, it releases a massive cloud of toxic gas which deals 30 radiation damage, tapering over distance.

  • At 95% health, the heart will summon two waves of mirelurks.
  • At 75% health, the heart will summon two waves of feral ghouls.
  • At 50% health, the heart will summon two waves of mirelurks.
  • At 10% health, the heart will summon two mixed waves of both feral ghouls and mirelurks.

Once the stranger heart drops to 25% health, it will summon a powerful boss creature, either a strangler mirelurk queen or a strangler Grafton Monster.

The event completes when both the strangler heart and summoned boss creature are finally defeated.
