Fallout 76: All Mutated Events in Mutation Invasion

Here's a list of all the Mutated Events in Mutation Invasion.

Mutant Invasion is the kickoff event for Season 12 in Fallout 76. Featuring a new mutation, new items, and new Daily Ops locations, the event brings plenty of content. Here's a rundown on the event, including all Mutated Events and rewards.

What are Mutations in Mutation Invasion — Explained

Mutations in Fallout 76 are ways your character changes after being exposed to large amounts of radiation. Mutations can occur when walking through highly irradiated areas or being attacked by glowing enemies. How you get a mutation is to simply expose yourself to high levels of radiation. Depending on your perks you may get mutated when the red radiation bar on your health fills halfway or more.

The mutations included in the Mutated Events are: 

  • Volatile: Enemies explode upon death.
  • Active Camouflage: Enemies are cloaked when not attacking.
  • Resilient: Enemies can only be slain with a melee attack.
  • Freezing Touch: Slow targets down upon attack.
  • Toxic Blood: Enemies leave behind small poisonous hazard upon death.
  • Group regeneration: Enemies heal each other when within radius.
  • Swift Footed: Increased movement and attack speed.
