A Cryptid are creatures typically from myths and fables in Fallout 76, so not too many people have seen them, but they’ve heard of them. These legendary creatures are not too difficult to defeat by yourself if you’re equipped and prepared, but tracking them down can be the toughest challenge But there are few easier ways to tackle this daily task to make it easier to complete and find a reliable spawn.

These are the many Cryptids you can choose to hunt down in Fallout 76.

  • Flatwoods Monster
  • Grafton Monster
  • Mothman
  • Sheepsquatch

You can find a decent spawn of them by traveling to the Flooded Trainyard, east of Watoga. From there, you should find several Snallygasters that you can defeat to complete this challenge. You can choose to bring a few friends with you to make sure you all complete the challenge, but defeating them yourself is a viable strategy.
