Mirelurk (Fallout 76)

FO76 publicteam xpd.pngFor an overview of the topic, see mirelurk.

Mirelurks are creatures found in Appalachia.

Gameplay

Mirelurks are ignored by most of the medium to large creatures in The Mire.[1] Mirelurks possess a hardened shell which is their primary form of defense and use their large pincers to catch and hold prey in place while using their smaller pincers to strip the meat. While their eyesight is poor, they posess a strong sense of smell which they use to find food. Mirelurks grow fast and reach maturity in a matter of weeks.[1]

The mirelurk crab attacks exclusively with melee. They will get close, usually in a group of three or more and attempt to hit the player character with their large claws. They will duck into their hard shell as a way to block incoming melee damage. They do this often and it can become an issue if the player character is being attacked from multiple sides, as when they turn to attack a different foe, the crouched mirelurk will leap up and attack almost instantly. They are vulnerable to explosives and headshots.
