Animals in Fallout 3
Animals --------- These are all the animals I've come across in the game so far, so if there are more, please let me know. Deathclaws are the most fierce animals in the Capitol Wasteland, they're claws can shed through your armor. Use V.A.T.s. to cripple their legs so they can't run as fast. I've only come across them in the Northern part of the map. Yao Guai are fast, and are descended from black bears. They can maul you down to shreds, use a combat shotgun to the head to take them out the easiest. Fire Ants and Giant Ants are the same, only the fire ants can shoot flames out of their mouth, and are a little tougher to take down. If you've done the quest 'Those!' then you know to take out the antennae, so they will attack other ants. If you didn't know that, well, now you do. Bloatfly's are very weak, normally a one hite kill, they are hard to hit though and have an amazing range for a bee. Mole Rats are the most common in the Wasteland, they are never alone, so look out, they normally come in pairs of two or three. Brahmin are not evil, but if you attack them, they will do two things, 1.)they will run away.(most likely) or 2.) fight, and they are incredibly weak, exept the trader's brahmin, they are so tough to take down. Feral Ghouls are never armed and will rush you, cripple the legs and then go for the head. Any weapons but the pistols will work amazing on them. Super Mutants are pretty tough for lower levels. There are four types of Super Mutants, A normal one, a Brute, Master and the worst of thema ll, A Behemoth. Don't get anywhere near a behemoth, they carry a firehydrant-pole, they are a one hit kill for anything. Super mutants can carry either: Nail oards, assault rifle, Chinese assault rife, hunting rifle, missile launcher, minigun or Gatling laser. Also sledge hammers and super sledges, but are rare, most use nail boards. Mirelurks look like Turtles, and i think they are. Use V.A.T.S to hit the face or use a combat shotgun anywhere else. Mirelurk Kings are different, you want to cripple the head as soon as possible, they shoot a paralyse beam at you then rush you. Radscorpians are mildly tough, they have good armored bodies and have a -3hp a sec poison damage. The Giant ones are the same. Vicious dogs are quick, use a hunting rifle, assault rifle or combat shotgun for quick work. Regular dogs are the same. Protectrons are malfunctioning guards. They shoot laser blasts and are easy to take down, just aim for the head. Mr. Gutsy are super tough and shoot a plasma shot from range and a flamethrower at close range. Robobrains are robots with actuall human brains in them, this one is olbious, hit them in the head. They shoot a laser but faster than the Protectron. Sentry bots are the toughest of them all. They are a fast moving armory. They can have a gatling laser, minigun, rocket launcher or sometimes a flame thrower. Most use a minigun and a rocket launcher. And finally, Radroaches, are the easiest things in the whole game. They will die one hite from almost everything you can think of.
