Giant mantises are mutated insects found in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281.

CharacteristicsEdit

BiologyEdit

Giant mantises are mutated praying mantises created by the horticultural experiments at Vault 22. They have escaped from the vault and have spread into the Mojave Wasteland. Compared to other mutant creatures, they are genetically more similar to the original specimen, albeit much larger. Mantises are significantly smaller than humans, but have an incredibly powerful attack. They almost always attack in swarms. Mantis eggs and mantis forelegs may be taken from their bodies.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Giant mantises are small compared to most other creatures and they will jump towards the player, slicing with their forelegs. If a mantis antenna becomes crippled, it will become frenzied and the mantis will begin to attack anything within reach. There are quite a few mantises on the way to Jacobstown and around Spring Mt. Ranch State Park.

VariantsEdit

Giant mantisEdit

Giant mantis

This variant is the standard giant mantis encountered later in the game around Spring Mt. Ranch State Park or on the way to Jacobstown. They can be found in groups or scattered around these areas when you encounter them. This variant also comprises the majority of mantises encountered in Vault 22.

NotesEdit

  • Taking two or more mantis forelegs off of one will cause the model's forelegs to explode. Strangely, this does not occur for mantis nymphs or giant Zion mantises.
  • Shooting a mantis ootheca will release a dozen giant mantis nymphs, which will then attack.
  • When observed for a time, it can be seen cleaning its mouth. On occasion, it will flutter its wings the same way it would when attacking.

AppearancesEdit

Giant mantises appear in Fallout: New Vegas and its add-ons Honest Hearts and Old World Blues.

BugsEdit

pcIcon pc The mantis EXP glitch still remains with Zion mantises. A transfer of legs could lead to 200XP gained at a time, dependent on level. [verified]

SoundsEdit

  • Mantis attack
  • Mantis chasing
  • Mantis flapping wings
