Honey beasts are creatures found in Appalachia.

Background

Honey beasts are ordinary honey bees that have undergone severe mutations due to radiation. Normal-sized bees construct hives upon their backs and help defend the honey beast. They can typically be found in The Forest, the Mire and the Toxic Valley.

Characteristics

Biology

The honey beast is a mutated honey bee. It dwarfs a typical human in size, and features large beehives on its thorax that oozes honey. It is known to be vulnerable to fire and cryogenic based weapons.

Due to its sheer size and stubby, severely frayed wings, it can no longer fly. As such, it moves around on the ground, although it can also walk on walls. The presence of regular-sized honey bees in other locations in Appalachia suggests that honey beasts have a similar mutation to bloatflies and regular flies.

Gameplay attributes

Honey beasts move slowly, and when engaging with hostiles, they will release bee swarms from the hives on their backs causing an easy distraction for the beast to make its attack. They attack slowly but powerfully and can cause immense damage if they manage to lock the player character into a stagger. Fire and cryogenic weapons do not inflict additional damage to the honey beast.
