What is a Yao Guai?
Due to its ferocity and sheer power, the Yao Guai is one of the most formidable enemies in Fallout 76, alongside the iconic Deathclaw. It’s a creature derived from pre-war bears that was mutated by the radiation from the falling nuclear bombs.
The Yao Guai features a large, barreling frame with patches of fur and sickly-looking wounds. And in Fallout 76, they come in a few unique varieties, such as:
- Stunted Yao Guai
- Albino Yao Guai
- Rabid Yao Guai
- Deadly Yao Guai
- Frenzied Yao Guai
- Prime Yao Guai
- Scorched Yao Guai
Each one proves more terrifying than the last!
How to Defeat a Yao Guai
To beat the Yao Guai, I recommend keeping your distance and hitting it fast and hard with a powerful weapon. The goal is to ensure you have the upper hand by jumping the Yao Guai.
I recommend using a heavy-hitting weapon, like a minigun, .50 cal machine gun, or light machine gun. These weapons fire fast and deal much damage per second to whittle away the Yao Guai’s considerable health pool.
