The Mirelurk Hunter is a vicious Mirelurk with much greater speed and substantially higher damage resistance than standard Mirelurks. It differs in appearance from a standard Mirelurk in that it has a brownish coloration, some extra vestigial limbs on its front and is also about 2 feet taller. It also has spikes sticking out of the shoulders of its carapace.

Mirelurk Hunters have about as much health as a Super Mutant Brute, and slightly more health than a Yao Guai. However, their damage-resisting carapaces cause them to take 1/2 damage from all attacks directed at their bodies. This gives them durability equal to that of a Deathclaw, unless you target their unarmored face.

‡ Due to their hard shells, torso shots only do half of the normal damage.


This beast should never be taken lightly as the damage this creature can inflict is comparable to an attack by a Yao Guai or a Deathclaw, although it is still less than anything those creatures could do. They begin to appear in greater numbers as the player levels up. If the player is at a high enough level, they may find Vault 92 and the Anchorage War Memorial filled with them.

Dealing with them is no different than a standard Mirelurk. Simply aim for the face from as far away as possible. Alternatively if you prefer melee weapons you can use the Deathclaw Gauntlet to ignore their armour.



Mirelurk Hunters cannot be knocked down, be it with Frag Grenades, the Victory Rifle, or the Electro-Suppressor.
