Fallout 76 Tells You To Pray That You Never Encounter Mothman

Fallow 76 Hands-on preview 02

The rumors are true. Among the many creatures of Fallout 76 from urban legend, Mothman is one of them. In our recent hands-on preview of Fallout 76, we didn’t encounter this beast but we were told about it.

While we were respawning, after an unfortunate death to the paws of a Shaggy Yao Guai in a heroic attempt to inject a stimpack into our injured team-mate, we were greeted with this message on the loading screen, where you’ll often see Survival Guide tips.

Mothman Comes To Fallout 76

“According to local folklore – as well as a statue and museum in Point Pleasant, West Virginia – the Mothman is a terrifying half-man, half-moth hybrid. Pray you never encounter it and learn the truth.”

Who is Mothman?

Mothman is a creature that was reported to have been seen in the West Virginia area between 1966 and 1967. It’s claimed that five men who at a cemetery digging a grave saw a ‘man-like figure fly low from the trees over their heads’.

A few days later, four other witnesses claim to have seen the creature and reported glowing red eyes and wings that spanned 10-feet. Other sightings followed and the Mothman was etched into West Virginian folklore. Such was the interest around this spooky figure that a film called The Mothman Prophecies hit the big screen and numerous books were written.

The Mothman is back in Fallout 76, so watch your back!
