They took the others.[...]
—Survival Log

Super Mutants are creatures in Fallout: DUST and Fallout: New Vegas.

They are humans mutated by the Forced Evolutionary Virus (FEV), characterized by much greater physical ability, and often by much impaired cognitive ability.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Though previously fairly common throughout the Mojave wasteland, the events of The Fall have resulted in a precipitous decline in the region's Mutant population. Those few that do remain are categorically hostile and should be avoided whenever possible. After RB-Expedition occupation of Black Mountain, they started conducting tests on Super Mutants with ERT

Tactical Considerations[edit | edit source]

Mutants have not lost any of their natural resilience and will destroy any human opponent in a straight fight. Thankfully, the mutants that remain suffer a dearth of ranged weaponry and will most often attack only with a melee weapon or their bare hands, both of which are plenty deadly.

Known Mutant Populations[edit | edit source]

  • Jacobstown is populated entirely by Super Mutants and nightkin, making it a dangerous destination for an underprepared traveler.
  • A camp of mutants can be found in the northeast Mojave wasteland, north of the devils throat and east of the survivor camp located there.
  • Mutants and centaurs, as well as lethal doses of radiation can be found inside the devils throat.
  • Super Mutant survivors can occasionally be found near Black Mountain
  • A small contingent of Nightkin occupy the basement of the RepConn test facility

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Nightkin found in the RepConn basement are unchanged from the vanilla game and will still give their relevant quest.
