Spore plants are creatures found in Vault 22, Zion National Park and Big MT in 2281.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Biology[edit | edit source]

Semi-intelligent, spore plants are violent in nature and attack most anyone without provocation. They also have an immunity to poison and radiation.

Gameplay attributes[edit | edit source]

The plant has two methods of attacking. Because of its stationary nature, its most common attack is a spike projectile which it spits at its enemies. This projectile has a very long range and can potentially be very harmful if exposed to the attack for too long. If an enemy gets too close, the mutant plant will lunge at them and bite with its thorned maw.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite being rooted to the ground, pushing them will move them around. Landing a Critical Hit during V.A.T.S. with a powerful enough weapon can also send them flying in a ragdoll fashion. They also can turn their "heads," despite being a stationary creature.
  • They can turn around 360 degrees to face the player character should they circle around the spore plant, even though they are supposed to be rooted to the ground.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Spore plants appear in Fallout: New Vegas and the Honest Hearts and Old World Blues add-ons. The giant spore plant only appears in Honest Hearts.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Sounds[edit | edit source]

  • Spore plant scream
  • Spore plant moving
  • Spore plant attack
