Assaultron (Fallout 76)

The Whitespring is under our protection.— Whitespring Assaultron

Assaultrons are robots found in Appalachia.


The Assaultron robot was constructed by RobCo[1] and sold to the U.S. military as a frontline wartime combatant sometime around the year 2072,[2] and to the Whitespring Resort as security robots. It is fast and deadly at close range and employs a devastating laser at a distance.[1] The dominator variant can also use stealth technology.

Gameplay attributes

An Assaultron's head houses an incredibly powerful laser that requires charging up before being fired. The Assaultron's face will become surrounded by red electric energy when it is charging its laser attack, after which, a potent laser beam will be unleashed, causing severe damage. The Assaultron's weak points are their legs. If destroyed, they will continue to pursue their target by crawling on the ground. After taking sufficient damage, such as losing all their limbs, they will charge a potentially deadly explosion as a last desperate attempt to eliminate the target by exploding.

Killing them before they can activate it will result in a normal death. On lower levels, they can be challenging to face head-on due to their fast speed and powerful attacks. A low-level player character may have difficulties killing or crippling the Assaultron before it's able to get into melee range or charge its lethal laser attack. Legendary variants can be much more dangerous as they recover any crippled limbs when recovering their health and explode violently a few seconds after being killed.
