Fallout 76 retools and reworks a bunch of long-standing, classic Fallout features to fit the new online-only focus. It also adds in some ideas of its own. From a new nukes system, New game mode, and fearsome new creatures, to grimly hilarious genetic mutations. It?s the Mutations systems that we?ll be looking at here, offering all of the info you?ll need to make Mutations work in your favor. In this Fallout 76 Mutations Guide, we?ll list every Mutation we?ve found in Fallout 76 so far, and render our verdict on what the best ones are. We?ll also give you info on how to get Mutations, and how, if you should so desire, to get rid of them.

Fallout 76 Mutations Explained - How to Get a Mutation in Fallout 76

So, Mutations are essentially special perks that grant both stat boosts and stat losses, but how exactly do you get them? To get a Mutation in Fallout 76, you?ll need to expose your character to some serious Rads. It?s unclear what the threshold for Mutations is, but we do know that this is the only way to get them in the game. If you need to get rid of a Mutation for any reason, then just use Radaway to bring your Rads down. The best ways to get a Mutation in Fallout 76 have been listed below:

Drinking unurified water
Standing close to petrified Scorched corpses
Swimming in water
Finding and standing next to radioactive waste

Fallout 76 Starched Gene Perk - How to Keep a Mutation

Mutations will go away over time as you lose Rads, but there is a way to ensure that any Mutations you apply stick around. The Starched Genes Perk can be applied to keep Mutations. While it is equipped, you won?t be able to gain a Mutation through Rads, or lose one using Radaway. If you get any Mutations that you?d like to keep, make sure you have the Starched Genes Perk Card.

Fallout 76 Best Mutations

Now you know what Mutations are available in Fallout 76, which ones should you go for? The problem is that most of the Mutations - while granting positive effects - also give negative ones as well. The best Mutations will depend on situation, but we?ve listed some good all-rounders below:

Herbivore: Vegetables provide 2x normal benefit, meat provides zero benefit
Marsupial: +20 carry weight, + jump height, -4 intelligence.
Eagle Eye: +4 perception, -4 strength
Healing Factor: +300% health regeneration, -55% chem effects

Great post blaze!

Given how important mutations are as a force multiplier, failing to understand and utilize them properly can leave the player at a significant disadvantage.

Nicely done.

Its good if you aren't going to be using energy weapons too much. It nerfs your damage but gives you tons of energy resist..so yeah its worth it unless you're an energy gunner
