Petrified corpses were once Scorched. At some point, they were infested by the hazardous fungus that causes the Scorched Plague, which eventually killed them and converted their bodies into a radioactive, petrified mass. Many were consumed so quickly that their corpses remain standing in the same stance and place they died in. Some Scorched may be found mid-petrification, such as in the church of Helvetia, stuck in the same state as the petrified statues. These Scorched do not crumble when shot, instead returning the fire with their own weaponry.
Petrified corpses are found at almost every location in Appalachia, mostly in places that were once inhabited.
Petrified corpses appear only in Fallout 76.
