Treasure hunter mole miners appeared in Fallout 76 again this weekend, each one bearing a pail full of loot for the MMO’s heavily armed players to take from its smouldering remains. Treasure hunter mole miners have appeared in several special events in Fallout 76, and it’s gotten a few players to wonder, “Are we the baddies?”
Mole miners are a type of mutant particular to Appalachia – a holdover from its pre-war past, in which the region was heavily exploited for its rich resources. The mole miners are mutated humans who have adapted to life in caves and abandoned mines, and typically when you meet them they’re both angry and heavily armed.
However, the treasure hunter mole miners have ditched big weapons in order to be able to carry more of the valuable oddities and gear they scrounge for. Unarmed, they’ll flee when players approach – but you’ll have to catch and kill them to take their valuable mole miner pails full of loot. On the Fallout 76 subreddit, more than a few players have said that they feel a bit bad doing this.
