Snallygasters are creatures found in Appalachia in 2102.

BackgroundEdit

The snallygaster is the horrifying result of experiments with the Forced Evolutionary Virus. According to documentation found at the West Tek research center near Huntersville, West Virginia, the snallygaster was a creation of the Advanced Mutations lab during the Phase 2 project caused by the introduction of the FEVS-006443 combination strain. Originally dubbed subject AM52, the experiment was noted as a success on October 14, 2077.[1][2]

CharacteristicsEdit

BiologyEdit

The snallygaster is a quadrupedal creature. It has two arms with three claws each, of which one is an opposable thumb, and two small limbs on the back of its body, which it usually uses to support itself while sitting. It has no proper face, but has a mouth with a long tentacle-like tongue covered in an acid and has multiple eyes along its back. A snallygaster will use its tongue like a whip up close and spit balls of acid at a range. The snallygaster has at least 40 eyes, two rows of teeth and thorns on its back.

It has been described as being "a dragon-like demon that haunts an area outside of neighboring DC."

Gameplay attributesEdit

Snallygasters are almost exclusively found around highly toxic or irradiated areas. They are usually in groups of 2-4. When provoked, they will spit a ball of toxic slime from the mouth, dealing poison damage. They will then run up to the player character and use a melee attack, either scratching or hitting the player character with their tongue.

LocationsEdit

NotesEdit

When the snallygaster uses its toxic spit attack, it will remain on the ground for short amount of time. Pressing the button to pick it up will result in you having the spit attack explosion in your inventory, despite not getting the pop-up to pick it up. This strange ability is shared with attacks done by a behemoth.

AppearancesEdit

Snallygasters appear only in Fallout 76.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The Snallygaster follows the idea established in other Fallout 76 monsters in that it is based on local legend. However, the legend of the Snallygaster is more within the area of Frederick County, Maryland. The snallygaster is said to be a dragon-like beast and its first sighting happened in the 18th century by German immigrants. It was described as half-bird and half-reptile with a metallic beak with razor sharp teeth and occasionally said to have tentacles. The earliest stories claim that this monster sucked the blood out of victims. Seven pointed stars reputedly kept the monster at bay, some of which can still be seen painted on barns in the area.
  • The name Snallygaster derives from "Schneller Geister", which is German for "Quick Spirits".
