Few creatures, real or imagined, terrify West Virginians quite like the Wendigo. Possessing alarming speed, razor-sharp claws and an insatiable hunger for raw flesh, it is truly the stuff of nightmares.Fallout 76 loading screen

Wendigo colossi are creatures found in Appalachia. They are large and powerful wendigo variants, encountered infrequently in Appalachian blast zones and inside Monongah Mine.

Background

Wendigos are mutated humanoids encountered in post-apocalyptic Appalachia.[1] While the precise nature of their origin is unknown, numerous individuals that are known to have transformed into such creatures are connected through their participation in the act of cannibalism. Morris Stevens, exiled leader of the cannibalistic raider gang known as the Gourmands, is one such example.[2]

Wendigos derive their name from Algonquin folklore creature of the same name. Pre-War urban legends surrounding the wendigo cave within the Savage Divide became reality when the Progenitor Wendigo, formerly Morris Stevens, made its home there.[3]

Biology

A larger and more powerful wendigo that has two additional heads, increasingly long, disproportionate limbs, and appear as their namesake large stature.

Characteristics

Each head of the colossus takes 200% damage. Crippling the legs will restrict movement. Crippling the heads will reduce Perception. Heads attack with dedicated damage types, firing a projectile that may be dodged. The melee kick attack deals Pure Damage, which completely bypasses DR.

Wendigo colossi will always spawn as 3-star Legendary enemies.

Behind the scenes

  • Regarding the design of the wendigo colossus, Nathan Purkeypile stated, "I wanted another huge creature and we had some old concepts of a bigger Wendigo when we were figuring out the initial Wendigo. So we iterated on that idea to make it even freakier and more unique."[4]
  • In Algonquin folklore, a wendigo is a malevolent spirit that is frequently associated with winter, cold, famine, and starvation.
