Egg Head

Bonus INT +6
Side-Effect STR -3, END -3

Egg Head is one of the Mutations of Fallout 76 (FO76). Mutations work the same way as Traits did in the previous Fallout games, in that they apply both buffs and debuffs to the player's character.


Egg Head Information

This mutation is beneficial to players who wants to have an intelligent character, at the cost of Strength and Endurance.

  • The player gains +6 Intelligence. With a high intelligence, the player is able to hack terminals and enhance the conditions when you craft items.
  • But the side effect decreases your Strength and Endurance by -3.


How to Get Egg Head

  • Obtain mutations by idling near hazardous waste or within radiated or gas areas, eating radiated food, swimming in or drinking wasteland water. You can also contract mutations from certain enemies such as Feral Ghouls.
  • Upgrading the Starched Genes Perk to Rank 2 ensures that Radaway will not cure mutations.
  • Upgrading the Starched Genes Perk to Rank 2 ensures that no new mutations can be acquired, guaranteeing you can keep the one you like.


How to Cure Egg Head

  • Mutations can only be removed by taking Radaway.
  • Mutations can be completely prevented by Upgrading and equipping the Starched Genes perk.
  • You can change your Mutation by exposing yourself to more hazards and radiation, as mutations can override each other.
  • Death does not remove mutations.

      Mutation idea; "Queen bee" -2 strenght -2endurance +5 charisma +5 perception Periodically spawns bees to aid you in battle and generate honey put directly into your inventory. Note: I would make it so the character has sort of small bee hives all over his skin when contracting this mutation and a buzzing sound could be heard.
