Super Mutants are often accompanied by Mutant Hounds, monstrous dogs that are just as dangerous as their masters.

Fallout 4 loading screens

Mutant hounds or FEV hounds are creatures found in the Commonwealth and are present on the Island in 2287.

BackgroundEdit

These are dogs that have undergone major mutation from being exposed to the Forced Evolutionary Virus. Usually they are accompanying super mutants. They may have been created in the FEV lab of the Institute, along with the rest of the super mutants that are seen throughout the Commonwealth.

CharacteristicsEdit

BiologyEdit

Mutant hounds are usually several times bigger than normal stray dogs and mongrels. The modification imposed on their bodies is similar to the one the super mutants went through when they were humans: increase of muscle mass, depigmentation of the skin to a greenish color and complete loss of body hair. The intelligence of mutant hounds seems to be affected too in the same way that a super mutant's is from the Forced Evolutionary Virus. They appear not to be in any way linked to the Master, as he was evolving only humans for his army. Super mutants seem to understand mutant hounds like no other in the Commonwealth. Their vocal cords have evolved to create a very deep and low howl that they use to alert their nearby brethren.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Mutant hounds will alert nearby mutants using a very loud howl. They deal radiation damage upon biting you. They normally come in packs of 1-3. They can also be tamed if one has the Animal Friend perk and be captured with Wasteland Workshop installed.

VariantsEdit

Mutant houndEdit

Mutant hounds are dogs that have been infected by FEV. They will not attack super mutants of any type, and will make a loud howl to alert other super mutants in the area. They are usually in packs of other super mutants.

Glowing mutant houndEdit

Glowing mutant hounds are a different variant of the mutant hound. They have more hit points than usual, and can deal a decent amount of RADs with a bite. As such, they still emit a loud howl to alert other super mutants.

Notable mutant houndsEdit

  • Gracie fo4fhGametitle-FO4 FH, a mutant hound sold by Erickson that acts like any normal guard dog.
  • Scout fo4fhGametitle-FO4 FH, a mutant hound sold by Erickson that acts like any normal guard dog.
  • Moby fo4fhGametitle-FO4 FH, a mutant hound sold by Erickson that acts like any normal guard dog.

NotesEdit

  • Oddly, mutant hounds are not affected by the Wasteland Survival Guide Issue #9 and do not give more meat; it also applies to the softshell mirelurk meat from their namesake source.
  • There is a legendary variant that is simply named "glowing mutant hound" with a star at the end of the name.
  • Despite the name, glowing mutant hounds do not actually glow like other "glowing" creatures, and look no different from their standard variant.

AppearancesEdit

Mutant hounds appear in Fallout 4 and its add-on, Far Harbor.
