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

Wendigos are creatures found in Appalachia.

Background

Wendigo is a mythical cannibalistic monster, mentioned before the Great War and encountered in post-apocalyptic West Virginia.[1] The term is used to refer to a dangerous humanoid monster encountered throughout the Appalachian region. Wendigos are found frequently at their namesake wendigo cave, where the "progenitor" wendigo must be eliminated by the Vault Dwellers as part of the Key to the Past questline.[2]

Biology

Wendigos are gaunt, emaciated humanoids with ashy gray skin, long bony arms, and a large abdomen. They are slender, tall creatures, sometimes seen slouching down or crouching. Their skull-like face has short strands of long, stringy hair and a mouth filled with long, jagged teeth. On the tips of their fingers, they have large claws. They emit audible raspy exhalations when alerted. The creatures move quickly and utilize sharp claws to attack [3] and their sharp teeth can be scrapped, yielding acid. Wendigos have similar radiation resistance to that of feral ghouls. They will not attack other creatures but are hostile to humans.

Characteristics

Wendigos are fast and can quickly deal a high amount of damage. They will try to get close as possible, making them hard to hit without V.A.T.S. if using a firearm. Wendigos will not run away if the player character climbs onto objects or furniture but will continue to screech. During combat, wendigos may let loose a piercing shriek that may attract a horde of feral ghouls to their location.

Though rare, one can occasionally witness wendigos perched atop tall and out-of-sight locations, which allows them to ambush prey. One such example can be seen with wendigos that perch on trees overlooking the central roads of the Mire. At higher levels, wendigos will frequently appear as a boss-type enemy for groups of ghouls. They reliably drop up to eight loose screws, with a rare chance of dropping up to 11 screws.

Notes

  • There is a miscellaneous quest to kill a Wendigo while wearing a clown costume. Completion of the quest requires wearing both the clown outfit and clown hat. Although the quest marker suggests going to the wendigo cave, any wendigo located throughout the game will also be acceptable.
  • Edie's note, found on a woman's corpse in the wendigo cave, tells of her and her partner, Morris Stevens, committing cannibalism. After being exiled from the Gourmands for eating fellow gang members, a short amount of time later he became greedy (in folklore, a sign of becoming a wendigo), and began to watch her hungrily. She is later found dead, and Morris can be found alive, having devolved into the "progenitor wendigo."

Appearances

Wendigos appear only in Fallout 76.

Behind the scenes

In Algonquin folklore, a wendigo is a malevolent spirit that is frequently associated with winter, cold, famine, and starvation.
