CharacteristicsEdit

BiologyEdit

Cave crickets kept a relatively similar appearance to their pre-War ancestors, as they still show characteristics peculiar to their family, such as long posterior legs and antennae, but as many other animal species, they still weren't left unaffected by the nuclear fallout that followed the Great War. Cave crickets are now much larger and have overgrown sharp mandibles, but the main feature that distinguish them from their unmutated predecessors is the huge, single, frontal horn they can now use to stab or even impale their prey. Cave crickets are usually seen wandering in groups of three to four individuals in the dry plains that surround Nuka-World.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Cave crickets are hostile upon seeing targets. They hop towards their enemy and use their strong jaws to attack. Cave crickets have large amount of health and some variants have significant ballistic and energy damage resistance. Cave crickets require both sets of legs intact in order to jump. Having even one set of legs crippled will drastically reduce their movement speed.
