Mole rats are creatures found in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281.

Background[edit | edit source]

Except for their large size, mole rats have remained largely unaltered by radiation.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Biology[edit | edit source]

Mole rats are warm and caring parents, willing to sacrifice their own life for the good of the pups. Mole rat families travel in groups of usually three to seven, consisting of two to three "parents" and one to four pups. These families are moderately docile, keeping to themselves unless approached by an enemy. Even though they are almost blind, they can smell and hear quite well.

Gameplay attributes[edit | edit source]

Mole rats are usually found in small packs, usually away from the main populated areas, although relatively weak, they can be a threat for lower level players when encountered in large packs. Mole rats will attack on sight and usually charge at the player.

Mole rat pups are mole rats that have yet to mature. Being younger, pups are smaller as well as weaker than adult mole rats. They are usually found around other mole rats, presumably their parents, wandering around the Wasteland.
