The Harder They Fall is an achievement in Fallout 4. You can unlock it by killing five giant creatures. They are like mini-bosses: large, tough monsters scattered around the map. This guide will show you where to find giant creatures in Fallout 4, how to defeat them and how to unlock The Harder They Fall trophy.
Behemoths are giant Super Mutants armed with a massive club that ends with a hydrant and a shopping cart full of rocks on their back. It’s imperative to keep your distance when fighting them – the club does a bunch of damage and is hard to dodge. When you’re out of reach, they’ll chuck stones at you – these can be dodged by jumping at the right time. Be sure to bring lots of stimpaks and ammo. Having a good suit of power armor wouldn’t hurt either.
This behemoth is in the field west of Recon Bunker Theta, on the northern border of the map. If you get him to chase you to the bunker entrance, you can jump onto the roof and shoot him from there. He’ll throw rocks at you, but won’t be able to get close.
This one is patrolling the marsh between Suffolk County Charter School and Gunners Plaza, in the south. Use the trees as cover – when he comes near, just run off to another tree.
Go south-west of Walden Pond, under the highway. The behemoth is in the center of a circle of cars (think Stonehenge, but with cars instead of stones). The easiest way to get him is by climbing the freeway and sniping him.
Mirelurk Queens are extremely large mirelurks. They’ll smash you with their pincers, spit at you and make little hatchlings chase you. Our favourite way of dealing with then is by kiting them into mines and grenades. This requires you to be quick on your feet and know the terrain well enough – backpedaling into an obstacle could mean the difference between a success and a failure. Make sure you have enough mines/grenades, as well as stimpacks. They’re pretty fast, so having power armor is a must.
There is one behind the Poseidon Energy Labs, in the swamp. When you approach the sunken ship, a Mirelurk King and 2 Mirelurk Hunters will attack you. Once you defeat them, the Queen will appear. You can kite her around the ship – she can even get stuck on it if she tries to go over.
This one is behind the Workbench at Murkwater Construction Site. You can kite her around one of the torn-down houses.
