Strangler hearts are plants found in Appalachia.

Background[edit | edit source]

Not much is known about the background of strangler hearts, other than the fact that Raleigh Clay and the Free States have encountered the creatures previously. The hearts are known for infesting living creatures with vines and amassing groups of hostile creatures.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Biology[edit | edit source]

Strangler hearts are large, mutated, carnivorous flowers. They have three massive petals thick enough to close and use for protection from outside attacks. The center of the flower holds a gaping humanoid-like mouth surrounded by jagged teeth. A long vine-like tongue writhes from the open mouth. The hearts have an innate ability to use their vines to infest other living creatures and form diverse bands.

Gameplay attributes[edit | edit source]

While appearing as non-hostile to player characters, 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.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Unlike other creatures in Fallout 76, strangler hearts are stationary destructible objects instead of actors. As such, they lack statistics such as level, Damage Resistance, Energy Resistance, and Radiation Resistance.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Strangler hearts appear only in Fallout 76.
