Hermit crabs are creatures found in Appalachia in 2102.

CharacteristicsEdit

BiologyEdit

This section is transcluded from Hermit crab. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

The hermit crab still resembles its unmutated pre-War ancestor quite closely both in appearance and habits, with only one major difference: its immense size. Towering head and shoulders over any human, hermit crabs are far too large to protect their vulnerable abdomen by squeezing it into an empty gastropod shell. Instead, they use wrecked vehicles to facilitate their ambush hunting style.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Hermit crabs are giant creatures on par with fog crawlers, mirelurk queens and super mutant behemoths, though not quite as tall as the latter. Should something or someone venture close enough, the hermit crab will reveal itself and attack with its massive claws. The process of extracting itself from its shell takes quite some time and should usually suffice to put some distance between the player character and the crab, provided the creature did not get the jump on its prey.

Hermit crabs are heavy hitters and can inflict immense damage with their claws while soaking up massive amounts of firepower in return. Fortunately, these crabs are quite slow and not exactly agile. They do fit through most doors and cannot mount obstacles. However, they do have the ability to create hatchlings that pour out at their enemy in waves. They will stop, pull halfway back into their shell and begin shaking before releasing between 4 and 6 hermit crab hatchlings at a time. Sometimes they release hatchlings upon death.

Hermit crabs usually do not attack until suitable prey gets within four to five meters of their position. They will, however, reveal themselves and actively start searching for trespassers if one stays in the general area for too long. This happens even when the player character remains hidden during this time.
