Radroaches are creatures found in Appalachia in 2102.

BackgroundEdit

Radroaches are enlarged versions of pre-War Great American cockroaches. They remain largely free from mutations, barring a substantially increased size.

CharacteristicsEdit

BiologyEdit

Radroaches have developed somewhat stronger wings able to lift the whole body into the air, usually to attack hostile creatures. While having increased in overall size, radroaches may appear in various sizes, from the size of a small rat to about the size of a house cat.

They have a limited ability to climb walls, being much bigger than their pre-War counterparts.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Unlike in some of the previous games, the player character suffers from slight radiation damage when hit by a radroach.

Radroaches can be found infesting seemingly empty rooms, hiding on walls or ceilings as well as in or behind furniture. They emerge and attack when hostile creatures are within close proximity.

Physical size fails to rely on toughness, meaning one may encounter both small tough radroaches and large weak radroaches. Some radroaches may have considerably more health, but this appears to be random regardless of level and size.
