Crickets are insects that survived the Great War.


They are most commonly found in hospitable populated regions, or areas with large amounts of woodland. Known locations for crickets are the Capital Wasteland, Point Lookout, the Mojave Wasteland, and Zion Canyon. It is unknown if crickets mutated in any way, since they are not seen in-game and are only able to be heard at night. However, it is likely they remained at a very small size.

Cricket chirps were to be included in the background ambient sound of the Tibbets Prison and Boulder in Van Buren.[1][2]
