Brahmin are creatures living in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281.

Background[edit | edit source]

The following section is transcluded from Brahmin. To modify, please edit the source page.

Brahmin are mutated cattle with two heads; in addition to twice as many heads, they also have eight stomach compartments,[1] males have four testicles,[2] and females have enlarged udders. They have lost much of their hair, leaving their skin a toasted brown, orange, or pink color, and attack by head-butting or trying to gore someone with their horns.

Brahmin meat is delicious - if only when compared to other sources of food. Brahmin are a source of milk that is like modern day milk, yet strangely different, it has been said to help heal radiation poisoning.

Wild brahmin can forage for themselves, and they can be found across the wastes, gathered into small herds, wandering here and there, munching on the dirty weeds scattered throughout the desert. Fortunately for the ecology of the wasteland (and the survival of their species), brahmin can go for long periods of time without water - they don't need much to survive. They have a strong sense of smell, and they don't hesitate to stomp over any wasteland predator that threatens them or their calves - well, except deathclaws, because no one messes with deathclaws.[3]

Occasionally, a brahmin is born with a single head - essentially, a regular cow. Ironically, these single-headed brahmin are referred to as "mutated" brahmin, and are considered to be nonexistent.[4]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The brahmin is a livestock animal and as such, is no real threat to the player.

Malnourished brahmin calf[edit | edit source]

Brahmin.png

Malnourished brahmin calves are young brahmin that cannot find sufficient food to maintain full health, usually because they have been deserted by their owners. Their meat is unaffected by their malnutrition. They can be found across the Mojave at such places as the Matthews Animal Husbandry Farm and one in front of Raul's shack.

Water brahmin[edit | edit source]

Waterbrahmin.png

Water brahmin serve a similar purpose to caravans in Fallout: New Vegas, although the only goods they carry are sacks of water, an essential for life in the Mojave Wasteland. These brahmin assist the Crimson Caravan in delivering water where it is required. Fixed locations are near Miguel's Pawn Shop and 188 trading post. Although they have water packs you can't find water on them.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If the player enters sneak and presses the action button while looking at a brahmin, the brahmin will tip over (this is known as brahmin tipping). Every time you push a brahmin (even if they are already on the ground) it counts as knocking down an enemy. With this in mind you can use this to get the "50 challenges completed" award very quickly (roughly an hour of tipping). Just push a brahmin towards the side of their pen and repeatedly press the action button.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Brahmin appear in Fallout: New Vegas.
