Mini-FOT LogoThe following is based on Fallout Tactics and some details might contradict canon.

Great American cockroaches, colloquially called giant cockroaches or radroaches, are giant versions of the pre-War species mutated by atomic radiation, found in the Midwest of 2197.

BackgroundEdit

In the Midwest, radroaches are a common sight in the wasteland. As in the Capital Wasteland, they can be encountered nearly everywhere, from old buildings to plains. It is speculated that radroach innards are useful in the treatment of radiation poisoning, and are widely used by tribals for that purpose.

CharacteristicsEdit

BiologyEdit

However, they are drastically different and more dangerous than those met in the Capital Wasteland. They have a large, protected body and small legs, and their saliva is incredibly toxic. They are very aggressive and attack most other lifeforms unlucky enough to encounter them.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Found mainly in underground areas and sewers across North America, these creatures can usually be found in fairly large groups. They feed on the dead, but will go after living creatures if isolated. Their numbers are their greatest advantage.

VariantsEdit

The Midwestern radroaches are more varied than their Capital Wasteland cousins. Three variations are currently known:

Small radroachEdit

RadroachTactics

The weakest of the radroaches, this variant can easily be killed. Their bites, however, can poison an opponent, and when they are in large groups they can kill even a prepared combatant. Small radroaches are nearly the same size as their relatives in the Capital Wasteland.

Large radroachEdit

RadroachTactics

Similar to their smaller cousins, they are, however, larger (being approximately the same weight as a human) and have an ability to spit toxic saliva at their enemies.

RoachorEdit

Roachor ingame

Roachor is a unique mutant radroach encountered by the Warrior of the Brotherhood of Steel. Roachor lived in the Peoria facility, which resulted in it becoming affected by the high amounts of radiation coming from a strange production device which was used in manufacturing fusion batteries. He is larger than any currently known radroach, being the same size as a car, and appears to glow in the dark. Its poison is even deadlier than that of Midwestern radroaches.

AppearancesEdit

Radroaches appear in Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout Tactics, and were to appear in Van Buren. They were also mentioned in Fallout Bible 1.

Behind the scenesEdit

In real life, roaches are noted for their relatively high resistance to radiation (about five to ten times that of humans). What is never explained, however, is their growing ability to reproduce, as high levels of radiation render normal cockroaches sterile.
