OverviewEdit

  • Mutated form of the common rat.
  • Somewhat larger in comparison to its cousin.

BiologyEdit

  • Not known.

UsesEdit

  • Rats frequently spawn Rat brains when killed and this may be 'eaten' by the player's actor. This will usually satisfy hunger requirements but will also introduce Radiation into the actor's system.

GameplayEdit

  • Individually a Rat has a weak bite causing a pretty trivial rupture effect and is easily killed using a pistol.
  • They are very susceptible to knife blows and frequently this is a more accurate option.
  • The Rat is a swarm creature and will attack in number posing a more formidable threat to the player.
  • Rats are able to climb stairs with ease but are unable to climb ladders.
  • The player should seek higher ground if faced with large numbers of these mutants and pick them off with cheap pistol ammunition. A desk is sufficient.
  • Against large concentrations, Grenades are not really that effective and may inflict unnecessary damage on the player anyway. Shotguns are certainly effective but many might consider their use to be a waste of resources.

TriviaEdit

  • A resident swarm of rats dwell in the scrub to the north of the Sin House. The player may attract the attention of them (and also nearby Blind Dogs and Pseudodogs) and run back into the Sin House to take refuge on a chest of drawers as they pursue. The Sin occupants will respond to the threat, and quite often wound one of their own number.
  • The player may take advantage of this in various ways (excluding the possibility of offering assistance, since no dialogue is coded)
