Where did the Super Mutants come from?

They're not just people mutated with radiation over years, is it? Because don't people just degrade/die like ghouls? Does the game ever explain how a bunch of burly green super mutants came to exist?

The game does a poor job explaining why the supermutants are in DC in such great numbers, and what they appear to be searching for.

IDK, man, one trip into the vault where you retrieve G.E.C.K. and you'll know just what they're all about.

Spoilers.......



The last boss from Fallout 1 made the super mutants using the F.E.V. I think he named himself master and he kinda creepy with his different voices.

Hey here's a thought...... what if the super mutants are capturing people for a way to revive master? With his psychi powers maybe he's telling the super mutants what to do.

Nah. Master's mutants =/= DC mutants. anyway, even the old Master's mutants dont want to revive him. Most of them ended up living alongside humans.

The supermutant base isn't where you get the GECK.
It's an old and destroyed pre-war research lab.If you read the lab records, the experiments were all destroyed. Obvioulsy the supermutants can't transform humans into supermutants.

They can transform humans into supermutants. In the vault where u get the geck Fawkes tells u about it, and thats why she was locked up, cuz she didnt agree with what they were doing its also the same reason uncle leo is just walking around the wasteland
