Female deathclaws, also called Mothers and Matriarchs, are stronger and tougher than males, as well as fewer in numbers. Only one female is the pack mother at a given time, with another female taking its place when it dies. A pack is led by an 'alpha male'.

In Fallout a Mother Deathclaw is located in a basement found at the Boneyard Warehouse. She grants more XP than her male counterparts (1500 vs. 1000) and has more HP (320 vs. 250).

Fallout Tactics

The deathclaw Matriarch imprisoned in the Fallout Tactics mission Mardin.

In Fallout Tactics a hairy deathclaw Matriarch is imprisoned by Beastlords so that they can extend the repertoire of their telepathic powers and dominate her pups. A later incarnation of her can be recruited as follower.


It's possible that the deathclaw variety with no spikes on the back and smaller, backward horns is in fact meant to represent the female deathclaw[1].


  1. The version with forward horns and (sometimes) spikes is the one from the clay model and the in-game model in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3 and Van Buren. The other version is seen in one of the images in the Fallout manual.
