Fallout 76 Feral Ghoul Locations Guide

Appalachia in Fallout 76 is infested with Feral Ghouls all about and will attack you on sight. In this Fallout 76 Feral Ghoul Locations Guide, we’ll show you where to find the most of the bunch and where you can find a few of the special ones.

Fallout 76 Feral Ghoul Locations

Feral Ghouls are hostile but unable to use any dangerous weapons against the player. They were former humans that suffered mutation and became zombies essentially. With all of their hair and brain function gone, they live to harm everyone and everything they find in their sight.


Weak Feral Ghoul
You can find this type abundant throughout all about Appalachia. They are the weakest of the bunch and pose very little threat.

Feral Ghoul
Slightly stronger than the ‘Weak Feral Ghoul’, and are found as a group in various towns.

Feral Ghoul Roamer
A little stronger, and is found in the wild and towns. You’ll find these packed together with other feral types.

Feral Ghoul Stalker
The unique ‘Stalker’ is a bit stronger than the ones mentioned above, and is usually found in the pack of feral ghouls.

Feral Ghoul Reaver
Clamped in metal armor, these are quite strong and can definitely get in your way if you leave them unattended for too long.

Withered Feral Ghoul
Older and a lot stronger than their other counterparts. They don’t have any armor or clothing, and can be unrelenting.

Gangrenous Feral Ghoul
Poisonous and powerful. The best two words to describe the Gangrenous Feral Ghoul. You can identify them by their greenish skin tone. Don’t let them land a hit on you or face the poison.

Rotting Feral Ghoul
Decomposing in its own filth, this one has lived for too long. The Rotting feral ghoul is as disgusting as it is powerful.

Charred Feral Ghoul
Burnt to a crisp, and found in a pack with other weaker ghouls. They are dark, and covered with infestation with no clothes. They’re able to deal high radiation damage to mutate their enemies.

Strangler Feral Ghoul
Reinforcements for the strangler heart; they are a strangler variant with many of the same abilities as a feral ghoul.

Feral Ghoul Officer
These officers used to be a part of the United States Armed Forces. Each officer had access to one of the eight launch code keys that were required to authorize the launching of a nuke from Appalachia’s nuclear I.C.B.M. silos.

Glowing One
Filled to the brim with radiation, they are found as a formidable foe (Boss) in buildings and can give out a high amount of radiation.

Putrid Glowing One
A stronger version of the ‘Glowing One’ covered with green blisters.

Bloated Glowing One
This is the Alpha and the Omega of the Feral Ghouls; the strongest there is! They are mostly found as a final boss in various ruins and will also appear if a nuke lands in an area with ghouls.

Reeking Glowing One
Identical to bloated glowing ones with much of the same characteristics.

Corroded Glowing One
Identical to bloated glowing ones with much of the same characteristics.

Deadly Glowing One
Same stats as that of a corroded glowing one, and is considered one of the strongest types of feral ghouls found in Appalachia.

Uncommon Enemies

There are a number of exceptional, or tougher Feral Ghouls you’ll find throughout your stories or in specific locations.

Freddie Lang
Unfortunately, the leader of the Blackwater Bandits’ raider gang mutated into a Feral Ghoul and can be found as a glowing feral ghoul in the Blackwater Mine.
