The hideously mutated, two-headed Radstag is a pathetic creature that will likely run at the first sign of contact. But if forced to fight, it can prove a deadly opponent.

Fallout 4 loading screen

Radstags are the mutated descendants of the Commonwealth and the Island's local deer population in 2287.

BackgroundEdit

Radstag descended from the common deer in the Commonwealth after their ancestors were exposed to great quantities of radiation in the fallout of the Great War. Due to this longstanding exposure to radiation, radstags, like brahmin, have two heads, less fur, and are sometimes covered in cysts.

CharacteristicsEdit

BiologyEdit

Radstag are a genus descended from deer in the Commonwealth. They are dicephalic, or two-headed; each head is able to swivel and turn on its own. A closer inspection of the heads shows that each head's inner eye is blind. Radstag also have two underdeveloped legs hanging limply from their chest, qualifying them as hexapodal. Aside from the ability to bend when a radstag lays down, these legs are nonfunctional.

Radstag are usually brown-furred and patchy in places, with small pus-filled cysts from radiation, which most often cover the flanks, feet, heads, and snouts. The cysts more frequently appear on the rabid and glowing varieties and can cover most of the body. Radstag yearling coats are more colorful than those of adult radstag and feature white spotting, similar to the fawns of their deer ancestors.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Radstag usually travel in herds of up to four, typically consisting of one radstag and a combination of doe and yearlings. Although radstag are generally non-hostile and will ignore or flee from a player character, companions may attack them if they stray too close.

Adult male radstag of each variant can be legendary. Legendaries are much more aggressive than regular variants. One notable difference is a goring attack that will knock the Sole Survivor to the ground and possibly kill them.

VariantsEdit

Radstag yearlingEdit

Fo4 Radstag yearling

This is the youngest and smallest of the radstags. They do very little damage and are unable to withstand much damage.

Radstag doeEdit

Fo4 Radstag doe

Older and slightly more resilient than yearlings, they are a little more mature and do slightly more damage. However, they can be killed almost as easy as yearlings due to their low health pool.

Rabid radstagEdit

This type of radstag has been infected with rabies or some sort of illness impairing its natural reactions. As such they are more aggressive than their healthier counterparts and are more likely to attack as one encroaches on its personal space or without provocation.

Glowing radstagEdit

This is the strongest type of radstag encountered in the Commonwealth. They have a higher health pool and have been exposed to so much radiation that their body literally glows with its excesses. When they engage in combat they inflict radiation damage on top of their standard attacks. They are normally seen in groups of 3 or 4.

NotesEdit

  • Mounted radstag heads can be found in the settlements decorations tab, under wall decorations, under mounted creatures. Making a mounted radstag head requires one wood, two cloth and one radstag meat.
  • Many can be found north of Abernathy farm.
  • In the valley just west of Rocky Narrows Park one can find a group of five radstags.
  • A radstag can be found at the Boston Police rationing site.
  • fo4wwGametitle-FO4 WW Radstags can be captured using cages.
  • A small herd will regularly spawn on the ridge to south of Egret Tours Marina. This can cause a small fight and/or trigger defenses set up by the Sole Survivor.

AppearancesEdit

Radstag appears in Fallout 4 and its add-on Far Harbor.
