The hunter is a resident of Appalachia hunting radstags.


This Appalachian is a simple hunter of radstag,[1] looking to take down one of the creatures and cook it into a meal.[2] He is dressed for the part, wearing camouflage from head to toe. He emphasizes the importance of hunting if one wants to survive in the wasteland.[3] He will also comment on the Vault Dwellers from Vault 76's weapon of choice, and its suitability for hunting.[4]

The hunter's editor ID indicates that he has some connection to the Raiders, but nothing in-game establishes this, and his dialogue after killing the radstag is shared with that of generic Settlers.


This hunter appears in Fallout 76, introduced in the Wastelanders update.
