Maybe a glitch?

If you didn't notice, I was the one who made the entry about their radiation waves possibly igniting a gas leak in one scenario. Can anyone possibly confirm this? Coodude26 02:13, 20 January 2009 (UTC)


It Does Happen!

Is was in a metro station with a gas leak and i used console commands to spawn a Glowing one and it just stood they but when i got near it it used its radiation attack and it Blew up when the gas ignited!BrotherHood Of Steel Knight120 19:34, March 21, 2010 (UTC)

on Meat

If you go to the Chop Shop and use TCL to move through the inaccessable door, one of the Glowing Ones in their has the name "Meat". Is this the same one from the article? 02:27, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Self Destruct

I once was fighting a glowing one once and managed to chip its health down to the last 2 ticks (I was playing on hard as a very low level character) when it did the whole "radiation burst attack" thing. This is pretty normal except that it blew itself up kinda like a self-destruct bloody mess kill. Anyone seen that before? --Mandalore IV 02:10, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

wouldnt it be crazy

if the two in the white house were the president and first lady from before the war??? just a thought -snufleufugus Mmm. Wouldn't the President be on the Oil Rig, out in the oceans. The Enclave were descended from the Pre-War US Government. It's a possibility, though.-- 07:14, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Museum of histroy

Managed to take out the Glowing One in the basement with a 10mm pistol. Took out all the ghouls on the upper levels one by one leaving the last one in the centre room with the Glowing One. One killed in VATS, the Glwoing One takes up pursuit. Try running backwards around the upper level and picking shots with VATS in the head, wait for AP to build up whilst running backwards around the upper gangway. Repeat until killed. I managed to do this without taking a single hit or the Glowing One bursting radiation. They only seem to burst when standing still.


would it be worth noting that the glowing ones, at least the ones from fo3, do not exhibit the scared skin tissue of other ghouls, its just rely skinny, rely thin, and rely bright--Katikar 19:15, October 29, 2009 (UTC)

The Arch-Vile Connection

I'm not exactly sure about the strength connection between the Arch-Vile and the Glowing One. I will admit that they do have a similar attack stance (raising their hands above their heads) and look similar but the Arch-Vile's attack spawns massive walls of fire that slams into the player from both sides. Also this attack doesn't heal the demons in Doom but can damage of them (leading to monster in-fighting) and the Arch-Vile is capable of regenerating any monster in the game. I do see a connection however and I may be nitpicking...--KnightNapier 23:14, November 7, 2009 (UTC)

Radiation free Glowing Ones

On Fallout 3 for the Xbox 360, I was in the Museum of History for the Head of State quest, and during it I fought 3 or 4 glowing ones. They never once emitted a radiation pulse at me (though truthfully I killed most with my silenced 10mm without them ever seeing me, so they didn't get much chance). I did fight one though, and it got in close and meleed me, doing a fair bit of damage... but no radiation. Their bodies did not give off radiation either, though the article doesn't seem to be totally clear over whether or not their bodies emit radiation after death in Fallout 3. And no, I was not wearing the ghoul mask.

So was I experiencing a glitch or something? I didn't think much of it until I read this article. I didn't realize they were actually supposed to give off radiation even when not emitting their waves at all. I have not encountered glowing ones outside of the Museum of History, so I don't know if this glitch was limited to this area or occurs everywhere. Quite frankly I'm not complaining if it's a permanent glitch on my game. Makes them a lot less dangerous. I only regret not having seen that radiation pulse. From the picture in the article, it looks like it's something to see!

Radation wave damage

Judging by previous posts Im guessing the glowing one radation attack has something other that basic radation in it, I also saw a NPC (swamp person?) being killed by one of these attacks, which is odd considering NPCs are genrally immune to radation. Is this worth mentioning in the article?

I suppose it could be yes, because NPCs are immune to radiation as far as I know. BOSPalidan 's ROFLCopter goes soi soi soi soi soi 08:12, July 4, 2010 (UTC)

What are they capable of saying?

I was honestly completely unaware they could talk until recently. I was playing New Vegas and headed toward the Old Nuclear Testing Site when I was attacked by a pack of ghouls. When I got it down to one Glowing One, he swipped at Boone and declared "I stop you". Which I thought was really cute.

Glowing one or Glowing One?

Is Glowing one a proper noun, and as such be called "Glowing One" with a capital 'O'? Kastera (talk) 18:22, July 10, 2011 (UTC)

Yes, proper noun, properly capitalized as "Glowing One."--Gothemasticator 18:26, July 10, 2011 (UTC)
Not really, I wouldn't call it a proper noun anymore than "feral ghoul", "super mutant" or "deathclaw". Just a name of a certain ghoul subtype. I'd keep it non-capitalized. Ausir(talk) <staff/> 18:28, July 10, 2011 (UTC)
If it were "Glowing ghoul," I would agree, Ausir, but "one" is not the same kind of normal noun. There aren't "ones" and "glowing ones." There are a special type of ghoul, properly named "Glowing Ones."--Gothemasticator 19:18, July 10, 2011 (UTC)

Agree for "glowing one", it's the same for "ghost people" or "super mutant". Really proper name is more for unique creature like "Ghost of She". Itachou [~talk~] 19:21, July 10, 2011 (UTC)

Overview this?

Should this page be an overview?--Ant2242 (talk) 21:41, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

Distance of radiation blast.

We should have a GECK ref on the radius of the discharge radiation from the glowing ones.--Ant2242 (talk) 07:47, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
