Radscorpions are mutated creatures in Fallout and Fallout 2.

BackgroundEdit

Main article: Radscorpion

Radscorpions are mutated from the North American Emperor scorpion,[1][2] which were prolific in many pet stores at the time of the Great War.[3] Contrary to many expectations, their venom grew more potent when they mutated rather than becoming diluted. Though considered nocturnal and sensitive to light, radscorpions can be found active during the daytime in the areas they inhabit. Samples of their venom can be used to make antivenom.

CharacteristicsEdit

BiologyEdit

The radscorpion is a large, venomous creature that not only deals high damage but it can also poison the Vault Dweller with its deadly venom.

Game attributesEdit

Radscorpions, of all variants, are vicious enemies. They have rock-solid carapaces which can withstand considerable amounts of damage, and their stingers are filled with potent poison. They almost always gather in packs of at least four individuals and are incredibly deadly to unprepared player characters.

VariantsEdit

When killed, radscorpion blood appears red. However, real-life scorpions have blue blood, which is the result of hemolymph, the insect equivalent of blood. This is also the case with mantises.
