Wolves in the wilds beyond Far Harbor have been mutated by the radioactive Fog and roam in ferocious, bloodthirsty packs.Loading screen hint

Wolves are creatures living on the Island in 2287.

Characteristics

Biology

The centuries of radiation exposure on the Island have done remarkably little to the local wolves population. Unlike the oftentimes hideously mutated dogs in the Commonwealth, Far Harbor's wolves retain most of their healthy pre-War appearance including their full fur coverage. Evolutionary changes encompass a considerably smaller head, elongated claws on their paws and noticeably reduced thickness of their fur coat, the latter of which makes them look much leaner and far more menacing than their ancestors.

Gameplay attributes

Post-War wolves are pack hunters just like their pre-War ancestors were. They are typically encountered in groups of up to six individuals which are led by the most powerful variant appropriate to the player character's level. However, at higher levels, wolf packs can consist entirely of top-tier variants, though vicious wolves seem to show up the most in these game stages.

Fast, agile and highly perceptive, wolves will often notice the Sole Survivor before they notice them. While one or two pack members draw their prey's attention with a frontal charge, the others usually circle around for attacks from behind. Being surrounded by a whole pack can quickly be lethal for low-level player characters and still poses a threat even to stronger ones.

Due to their relatively low resistances and small health pool, wolves are fairly easy to kill, provided one manages to hit them. Top-tier variants, on the other hand, are quite resilient for something their size and can take considerable amounts of punishment before going down.

Considering their size, tactics and overall behavior, Far Harbor wolves are basically the Island's equivalent to the Commonwealth's mongrels, so any player character's preferred method for dealing with mutated dogs will work just as fine for getting rid of post-War wolves.

Glowing wolf

Fo4FH glowing wolf.png

Glowing wolves represent an upper-tier subtype of their species and deal additional radiation damage on hit. Like all glowing creature variants, they boast significantly higher resistances and damage output than their weaker cousins. Their threat level should therefore not be underestimated.
