Super Mutants are a type of creature found in Appalachia, the location where Fallout 76 takes place.
There are many places to find Super Mutants, but players might not want to go looking for them if they aren't prepared because these creatures are some of the most dangerous enemies in the game.
While playing Fallout 76, players are sure to run into a group of them sooner or later. Those wanting a challenge, however, will be able to use a list of locations to hunt them down.
What are Super Mutants in Fallout 76?
The West Tek research facility contaminated the river water running through Huntersville before the Great War. Those who drank the water became what are known as Super Mutants.
Super Mutants possess superhuman strength, often use melee weapons, and are carnivorous creatures. In the year 2103, they multiplied by unknown means and proved to be a formidable threat in numbers.
There are multiple types of Super Mutants, such as the berserker, firestarter, and suicider. There is also the behemoth, which is typically the leader of a small group of Super Mutants.
Super Mutants wander around the various regions of Fallout 76, with some locations guaranteed to have them. They roam around occasionally at a handful of other locations, but the encounter rate is not 100%.
