Mutant hounds are creatures living in the Commonwealth in 2287.

Background[edit | edit source]

Canids that underwent the same Forced Evolutionary Virus regimen that created super mutants, these monstrous dogs often accompany their super mutant masters, acting as guard dogs.[1]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Biology[edit | edit source]

Mutant hounds still resemble the dogs they evolved from, but are significantly more stout and stocky, covered in rippling muscle. Notably, they also have green skin similar to super mutants, lost all of their fur, and possess a maw of gnarly, protruding teeth. They are approximately a meter tall at the shoulder, and 1.5 meters long from muzzle to tail. As obligate carnivores, they feast on the flesh of wastelanders unfortunate enough to wander near super mutant camps.

Gameplay attributes[edit | edit source]

Super mutant camps typically have 2-4 hounds patrolling around, on the lookout for intruders. Once they detect such an intruder – usually the player character – mutant hounds let out a distinctly loud and bellowing howl and alert their super mutants masters to their presence. In addition to alerting, mutant hounds viciously pursue intruders and attack by lunging with their snarling maw of teeth; their bites also deal radiation damage.

Variants[edit | edit source]
