Mutated Public Events
Mutations are strange evolutionary buffs that make your foes even deadlier. At the top of the hour, every hour, a Mutated Public Event will appear. A special icon will indicate the Public Event is Mutated, with regular Public Events appearing for the remainder of the hour. Mutated Public Events include conditions such as:
- Active Camouflage – Enemies are invisible until attacked
- Volatile – Enemies explode upon death
- Reflective Skin – Damage inflicted to enemies is repelled back at you
While Mutations increase the challenge of Public Events, surviving brings plenty of rewards. Completing Mutated Public Events will earn players loot including XP, Legendary items, Treasury Notes or even a Mutated Package, containing a chance for some rare goodies. Earn additional rewards by completing Mutated Public Events with Fallout 1st members, regardless of whether or not you’re subscribed!

Players will also visit three new Daily Ops locations including: Capitol Building, Garrahan Mining Headquarters and Morgantown High School. Do you and your crew have what it takes to save the day?
