The fiercest flying insect in the commonwealth, the Stingwing strikes relentlessly with its poisoned stinger.

Fallout 4 In-game Description

Stingwings are flying creatures mutated from scorpion-flies, that live in the Commonwealth in 2287.

BackgroundEdit

Stingwings were created by radiation at some point between the start of the Great War and 2287. They are known to build large clusters of nests on the ground and walls, the nests themselves ooze a bright yellow sap akin to honey from their entrances. The player must use caution when approaching these nests, as multiple stingwings will emerge to fiercely defend them from potential threat.

CharacteristicsEdit

Stingwings appear to be a large, mutated form of scorpion-fly, with extended mouth parts and a scorpion-like tail, ending in a bulbous and deadly sting. They can often be found in swarms, and their erratic flying coupled with a poisonous sting make them formidable opponents.

BiologyEdit

Due to radiation, stingwings have developed a poisonous sting not found on their modern, unmutated counterparts. Also, unlike the modern day Mecoptera order of insects, stingwings appear to exhibit no sexual dimorphism, as only male scorpion-flies wield the appendage which grants them their name.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Fragile but agile, the stingwing can be taken down in relatively few shots even at mid-level. It is, however, extremely fast, hits fairly hard, and fond of a "dive-bombing" tactic where it circles the player character and rushes in to hit once before returning to circling. They are often encountered in groups of three to five, and can be a harsh problem due to their speed and erratic movements, which can combine to make them very hard to hit without V.A.T.S. Another tactic the stingwing tends to use is to rush at the player character in single file.

VariantsEdit

Stingwing chaserEdit

Stingwing chaser

Chasers can be considered as the toughest of the stingwing variants. They are fast, hit hard, and are especially dangerous when encountered in groups, as they will attack together. Once the Sole Survivor reaches higher levels, they will spawn in various areas.

AppearancesEdit

Stingwings appear only in Fallout 4.

Behind the scenesEdit

The stingwing is based off the mecoptera, or scorpion-fly, which has no ability to sting. The large, threatening tail simply houses the males' genitals. This insect is in reality completely harmless.
