Anglers (Fallout 76)
Anglers are creatures in Fallout 76.
Anglers are huge, mutated angler fish that have grown limbs and made their way up river from coastal areas of the North American continent. Lurking around ponds and other shallow water, anglers use their bioluminescence to attract prey; their glowing cranial appendage looks exactly like a lure weed. Any animal the gets too close, enthralled by this glowing light, is attacked by the angler.
These creatures also have the unique ability to take in the radioactive fog of Mount Desert Island, and use it to unleash a fireball at their enemies.
A mid-grade creature that's a potent close combat fighter and has enough durability to be a threat, especially in close quarters. Anglers are a challenge primarily because of the speed at which they close distance and their numbers: They rarely appear alone.
Anglers appear in Fallout 76.
- Given the name, glowing lure, large eyes, general body shape, and fanged mouth, one can deduce that anglers are mutated angler fish.
- Far Harbor loading screen hints: "Anglers wait in ambush for prey to come to them. Their glowing "lure" mimics the look of a flower common to the island."
