It seems Giant Mantis attacks may ignore DT, similar (if less deadly) to a Deathclaw. The Mantis Gauntlet seems to support this idea as well.

1.02 patch: EXP glitch

I seem to be getting 20 xp the first time I take mantis forelegs from the corpses of their previous owners (which causes the corpse to explode). I think this is kill experience granted a second time.

Anyone else confirm? I'm on the Xbox 360 08:17, December 18, 2010 (UTC)

Haha I take that back, I can replace the mantis forelegs in the corpse and gain XP for that, then take them out for XP again. Infinite XP glitch. 08:21, December 18, 2010 (UTC)


I ran into this a while ago. I was in Vault 22 and, when I picked up the Mantis Forelegs from the Giant Mantises, I recieved bonus xp. It was a smaller amount though, only about 5xp, but that might just have been because I was level 26 or so when I got there, making the experience lower. (PC)

Edit: The Mantis Foreleg page says that the glitch involves moving the limbs between containers in certain locations. --CptMuddles 14:25, December 31, 2010 (UTC)

Another exp glitch. Nymphs that you can destroy by walking over them can give double exp, first kill them normally, then walk over them. Twice the exp! --Soyweiser 20:04, 17 February 2012 (UTC)


Do all of these variants actually appear in-game? Ausir(talk) <staff/> 22:57, May 7, 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I believe so. --User:Cartman!User talk:Cartman! 17:17, May 20, 2011 (UTC)

Zion mantis

Is the only difference to a regular giant mantis the size? --User:Cartman!User talk:Cartman! 17:17, May 20, 2011 (UTC)

Extra experience glitch

I only seem to be experiencing this with the mantis groups situated in Vault 11 and Vault 22 along with the ones just in front of 22's entrance. Noteworthy? Great Mara 17:56, June 22, 2011 (UTC)
