The Super Mutant Overlord is a type of super mutant added to Fallout 3 by the Broken Steel add-on. Bethesda revealed that they are evolutionarily somewhere between Super Mutant Masters and Super Mutant Behemoths[1].

Super Mutant Overlords are some of the toughest enemies in Fallout 3, wielding powerful weapons and possessing 2.5 times as much health as a Deathclaw or Sentry Bot.


Overlords carry Gatling Lasers, Missile Launchers, Tri-Beam Laser Rifles, and Super Sledges as standard weapons. In a rare case, you may find an Overlord with a Minigun, Assault Rifle, AER9 Laser Rifle, or Chinese Assault Rifle.

If an Overlord picks up a rifle normally used by other Mutants, like a Chinese Assault Rifle, they will use only one hand to fire it.

It appears that they are most commonly equipped with Tri-Beam Laser Rifles as ranged weapons, this can be problematic (especially on higher difficulty levels) since they inflict an extra 40 damage per shot even if you have 85% damage resistance they can still knock off roughly 25% of your health (assuming you have nearly 600 hp) making Overlords exceptionally deadly with this weapon.


Super Mutant Overlords appear in the Fallout 3 add-ons Broken Steel and Mothership Zeta.



Super Mutant Overlords can appear anywhere where regular Super Mutants appear.
