How to tame a creature in Fallout 76
Reddit user echolyx57 managed to tame a Deathclaw recently:
Meet Peaches, my new C.A.M.P. security system!
I haven’t seen much on this sub about successful creature taming, but I figured I’d give it a shot today. I equipped rank 3 of Wasteland Whisperer and Animal Friend and set out to tame whatever I came across. There’s a crashed Vertibird north of Abbie’s Bunker that is a guaranteed random encounter spawn, so after a bit of server-hopping, I finally found a Deathclaw! Now he stomps around my C.A.M.P. and keeps pests away from my crops.
Here is echolyx57s guide on how to tame a creature in Fallout 76:
Weapons: As long as you have a ranged weapon that you would normally use for pacifying, that’s all you need.
How to Find a Tameable Creature: Creatures can only be tamed if they spawn alone as a random encounter. There are many different spots to farm random encounters, but I have been using the one north of Abbie’s Bunker. It’s a bit of a hike, but once you reach the crashed vertibird in the center of a pond, the encounter will spawn at the west end of the pond.
Taming a Creature: You can do this from a bit of a distance, but when you point at a creature that has spawned as a random encounter, you will be given the option to tame or pacify. If you decide to tame this creature, a box will pop up on screen telling you that this creature will be sent to your camp. Keep in mind that this creature has to manually run to your camp, and can be killed by strong enemies on its way, so don’t get discouraged if this doesn’t work the first time. Hop servers or do some other things in the world to take up some time as you wait for your new friend to arrive at your camp.
Creature in your Camp: These tamed creatures essentially just march around your camp. They do take up quite a bit of budget, so I would suggest that you have your camp completed before you attempt this. They will spawn into the world with your camp if you hop servers, unless they are killed by another player or glitch under your foundation and suffocate. Some creatures will never show a “friendly” health bar for some reason, namely the deathclaw, but will be friendly to the player.
