Strangler hearts are creatures found in Appalachia.

Background

Previously encountered by the Free States,[1] the hearts are known for infesting living creatures with vines and amassing groups of hostile creatures.

Gameplay attributes

While appearing as non-hostile to players, strangler hearts are still able to directly inflict damage. When attacked, the heart will spit out a toxic gas that gives +6 rads/second. If further damaged, it will close and call for reinforcements.

When closed, strangler hearts are immune to damage and are able to summon waves of strangler mirelurks and strangler feral ghouls. The hearts reopen once the enemies are defeated. Once below a quarter of its total Hit Points, stranger hearts will summon a strangler mirelurk queen or a strangler Grafton Monster.
