Ticks are creatures found in Appalachia in 2102 and 2103.

CharacteristicsEdit

BiologyEdit

Ticks resemble a standard deer tick, though considerably larger then their non-mutated counterparts. They have eight legs (four on each side), and they are made of two distinct parts, including the head and the abdomen. The abdomen is capable of swelling to enormous proportions after blood has been ingested.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Despite their small size, they can be relatively dangerous early in the game when encountered in groups. Ticks can be very difficult to see in certain environments, however, they do emit a unique scatter-like sound when moving. Similarly to other smaller mutated insects, some ticks may hide in the soil or under structures, they will jump out when in close proximity to the player character.

Ticks are very fast for their size, and will easily catch up to the player character if seen, they use their claws to attack, and when they successfully do this enough, their blood sacs will fill with blood. If the player character manages to kill the tick while in this state, their sacs will explode, rendering them unable to be looted for tick blood and tick blood sacs. Diseased ticks also have a chance to give the parasites disease.

Behind the scenesEdit

50 Vault-Tec C.E.O.The following is based on unverified behind the scenes information and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

According to the WVU Extension Service, the American dog or wood tick is the most common tick in West Virginia, however, the in-game creature appears to be modeled on the black-legged or deer tick.
