Frenzy

i shot a giant rat in broc flower cave with my sawed off shotgun and it frenzied i think i hit its whiskers or its eye can anyone else confirm this?

I also frenzied a rat in Broc Flower cave. I haven't confirmed it, but I find it most likely that this is caused by crippling their tails, since I can't think of any other purpose crippling their tail would serve. EDIT: After obtaining Ratslayer I took the opportunity to snipe a Giant Rat's tail specifically, and sure enough it frenzied it. I went into VATS to confirm the tail was crippled (the only message I got was that it was frenzied, nothing about anything being crippled) and sure enough it was, while nothing else was damaged at all.

Also interesting to note is that the Giant Rats I encountered were much stronger than the stats suggested and gave 50 exp per a kill. This means that the giant rats in Broc Cave at least scale with level (I'm level 14 as I write this), and that there are higher classes of rats above the ones mentioned but lower than the R.O.U.S.
