The deathclaw egg is a miscellaneous item in Fallout: New Vegas.

CharacteristicsEdit

Deathclaw eggs are the unhatched offspring of deathclaws. They have a brownish-red shell which appears to have cracks and small fissures all around it. They are about the size of the player's torso, and with a weight of 7 lbs. they are one of the heaviest items dropped by creatures, but are worth an impressive 400 caps, giving them a high value-to-weight ratio and making them a highly valuable loot item.

UsesEdit

One deathclaw egg is required during the unmarked quest, You Gotta Break Out a Few Eggs, and they are the primary ingredient required to make a wasteland omelet.

Deathclaw eggs can also be used to complete a portion of the quest Bleed Me Dry. Rather than finding the quest-specific "pile of deathclaw eggs," the player character may instead gather a dozen deathclaw eggs. Once the Courier has obtained the required 12 eggs, they will be removed from their inventory and replaced with the "pile of deathclaw eggs" item.

LocationsEdit

Fallout 3Edit

  • fo3bsGametitle-FO3 BS - Inside the deathclaw pens in the Adams Air Force Base hangars. These eggs use the same shape as their New Vegas counterparts, but have a different texture. However, these versions are not obtainable and cannot be interacted with.
  • fo3bsGametitle-FO3 BS - More of the same deathclaw egg piles can be found in an open area with workbenches deep inside Old Olney underground.

Fallout: New VegasEdit

Behind the scenesEdit

The existence of hard-shelled eggs confirms deathclaws to be oviparous, which is interesting in light of their origin as mutated Jackson's chameleons, which are ovoviparous, meaning they incubate their eggs within their body. They are not, however, viviparous, meaning they bear their young live, as humans are.
