What Are Deathclaw Eggs Used for in Fallout 76?

Deathclaw Eggs are used commonly for cooking or eating. However, they have a much higher chance of disease compared to other consumables and also carry radiation. Mostly players may collect them for the positive potential mutation of “Carnivore”. This gives double the benefits of any meat consumable but won’t disease you.

You can also sell Deathclaw Eggs to vendors across Appalachia for a small number of bottle caps. Now that you know where to find Deathclaw Eggs, you will be back on the hunt for other enemies and items in no time.
