Is the Mirelurk Queen killable?

Recommended Posts

Unboxed my copy of Fallout New California expansion today and saw that the Mirelurk Queen is lvl 3 and has the shield icon. I take this to indicate that you need four hits to kill it.  Having a look through the base game rules however, I saw that you can only use each of the three dice to score one hit. Am I misinterpreting the rules or is this monster truly unkillable?

A ranged attack adds an automatic hit, as does certain drugs (though I can't remember which without getting my game out). Also, the new grenades, the traps, the rocket launcher/bazooka. Basically, you're outmatched in a straight up fight, but using some of the sneaky tricks makes it killable.

Thanks for that tip. I forgot all about the extra hit with ranged and about the drugs.  Haven't had a game with the expansion or explored all of the new cards yet either.

And don't forget about the new perks such as Nerd Rage and Ricochet.

Ricochet will be very handy, just kill a level 1 and then kill the Mirelurk Queen with the ricochet 😀😀😀
