Locations[edit | edit source]

They can be found in large quantities (100+) on the dead bodies of the tribals at Peoria, where your mission entails retrieving 3 fusion batteries.

Beastlords almost always carry a few boom bugs with them in their war parties. This is on account of their use of animals and other nature-oriented weapons in combat.
