Centaurs are mutants found in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281.

BackgroundEdit

This section is transcluded from centaur. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

Centaurs encountered in the Core Region and Mojave Wasteland were created by the Master. The creation process involved tossing a varied mix of humans, dogs, and other types of animals into a Forced Evolutionary Virus (FEV) vat to be infected by the virus, and then seeing what mutant chimera emerged as the virus produced rapid and unpredictable mutations. The resultant centaurs can differ quite radically in physical appearance from one another. However, all known centaurs are somewhat humanoid in appearance.

CharacteristicsEdit

BiologyEdit

Unlike its two-headed cousins in the Core Region, in this type of centaur only the human-like head and torso remain, and the spines on the back are replaced by 3 long, tentacle-like tongues. This variant of centaur also has a ranged attack: a high-arcing, slow-moving saliva projectile that carries lethal doses of radiation. Strangely, it is also capable of igniting lingering gas vapors as well.

In close quarters, it utilizes its tongue to whip at any intruders. Though it doesn't cause much physical damage, it inflicts a notable amount of radiation damage.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Individual centaurs don't really pose much of a threat to players, but as a rule of thumb, centaurs never travel alone and are usually found with other centaur variants or super mutants. All centaurs are hostile to the player, and when encountered will "spit" slow-moving projectiles at the player in high arcs. They don't do much damage, but increase the player's radiation level dramatically. As the projectiles are slow-moving, however, they can easily be dodged.

In close combat, centaurs do low to moderate damage depending on which type of centaur, but strike very slowly using their tongues in close combat. They can easily be avoided though, as they are very slow moving.

They are not encountered as often as in Fallout 3.

VariantsEdit

CentaurEdit

Centaur

The most common variant found in the wastelands, the centaur on its own can prove very little threat due to its slow speed. However, being the more commonly found variant, it is not often encountered on its own. Some can be found near Black Mountain, Jack Rabbit Springs and a large group of them reside in The Devil's Throat, east of Bitter Springs.

Evolved centaurEdit

CentaurEvolved

As the name suggests, they are a bigger and stronger variant of a centaur. Having been exposed to a higher degree of radiation than regular centaurs, they have significantly more muscle mass, as well as thick clusters of tumors growing from their backs.

Though they are slow, they are much tougher and inflict more damage with their toxic spit and whipping tongues than regular centaurs, and are often accompanied by several other centaurs or super mutants. Many evolved centaurs can be found east of Bitter Springs in The Devil's Throat.

Giant evolved centaurEdit

CentaurEvolved

An even bigger variety of the evolved centaur, the giant evolved centaur is the largest and most dangerous variation of centaur. The giant evolved centaur is often surrounded by several evolved centaurs.

Only one giant evolved centaur can be found, and it is located in The Devil's Throat. This creature normally re-spawns 3 days after being killed, as do the other centaurs found there.

Notable centaursEdit

NotesEdit

  • There is a named centaur called Moe who is believed to be Tabitha's pet. Interestingly, Moe respawns if killed. He appears at Black Mountain and is mentioned on Black Mountain Radio in which Tabitha asks her robot Rhonda what her "favorite" centaur Moe is doing. Tabitha also references that she finds them rather cute. Moe can be found guarding two dead Brotherhood of Steel Paladins at the bottom of a highly irradiated crater.
  • In Fallout 3 they are allied with the super mutants, and it is also possible that they may be allied with them in Fallout: New Vegas, since there is a large group of them in between the Hidden Valley bunker and Black Mountain. In fact, during Still in the Dark they can be found guarding dead Paladins, which have a holotape on them. Sometimes a super mutant will be in the Devil's Throat, near the truck. On Black Mountain Radio, Tabitha talks about super mutants keeping centaurs as pets, and their perception of humans as prey.

BugsEdit

  • ps3Icon ps3 xbox360Icon xbox360 If any centaur follows the player into any deep body of water, they will walk on the surface of the water and not go under. [verified]
  • pcIcon pc ps3Icon ps3 xbox360Icon xbox360 If you take out an evolved centaur's head, either by shooting, or bashing it till it's gone, sometimes their face will disappear and the body will just be left with a hole in its face. [verified]
