Lakelurks are creatures found in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281.

CharacteristicsEdit

BiologyEdit

Lakelurks are mutated snapping turtles which live around aquatic areas consisting of relatively radiation-free waters such as Lake Mead. They attack by using shrieking sonic pulse waves to stun and then rip apart enemies with their claws. They are fiercely territorial and extremely aggressive, attacking almost anything that comes near them or their nests. They are usually found in small groups of two to three or in larger groups comprised of around five to eight. They have a high Perception, which makes them very quick to find potential prey within their immediate area.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Lakelurks use a devastating sonic attack to debilitate their foes from afar.

Fallout: New Vegas loading screen hint

Strangely, if they follow their prey into water, they will have no underwater attacks and will only continue to glare. But if their sonic attack is fired from land, it will go straight through the water as it does through the air, putting their prey at a disadvantage of not being able to defend themselves.

VariantsEdit

LakelurkEdit

Lakelurk

The standard lakelurk with all characteristics stated above. The largest lakelurk hot spot is Lake Mead. There are also large groups at Blue Paradise Vacation Rentals and at Ruby Hill mine. About 2-4 can be found down the hill from the cap counterfeiting shack near Lake Mead, and around four lakelurks can be found on the scavenger platform. Four more lakelurks may be discovered just south of the Hoover Dam southern fence line barrier on the eastern side of the Colorado River in a small cave area. At lower levels, lakelurks will rarely drop lakelurk meat when killed. Higher level lakelurks, however, more often than not drop lakelurk meat.

Lakelurk kingEdit

Lakelurk king

The lakelurk king is a stronger variation of the standard lakelurk. While visually similar, the king has slightly glowing eyes, fins, claws, and other protrusions. Also of note is the apparent light coloration resembeling "body paint" on its chest and back. It can be found in the Camp Guardian caves in a large room among multiple lakelurk egg clutches. Killing it will cause the other lakelurks in the cave to frenzy and become hostile towards each other.

NotesEdit

  • Cass mentions that fish are like a lakelurk, but slimier and will not attack on sight.
  • Lakelurk bodies will not float when killed in water but sink. However, their viscera will sometimes float on water.
  • Before attacking, lakelurks will roar, giving a short amount of time to attack the lakelurk without it fighting back.
  • Lakelurks have two sets of teeth; a set similar to human teeth and another set of teeth in front similar to that of a piranha.
  • Lakelurks are similar to the mirelurk kings and swamplurk queens of Fallout 3.
  • A large number of them, around 10-15, can be found at lakelurk cove.
  • A lakelurk's sonic attack isn't slowed down by water.

AppearancesEdit

Lakelurks appear only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenesEdit

Cachino makes a reference to Nero "sleeping with the lakelurks," the Fallout equivalent of "sleeping with the fishes," a euphemism implying death coined in older mafia films where someone would have their feet put in cement, then thrown in a body of water.[1]

BugsEdit

pcIcon pc While using a 12.7mm pistol, a lakelurk can stay at zero Hit Points without dying. A companion will have to kill it for you.[verified]
