Field Rats are stronger, tougher, faster and more evasive version of the Tunnel Rat. They appear in areas populated by bandits.



Just like Tunnel Rats, Field Rats try to stay back from their enemies and pepper them with assault rifle fire. Unlike Tunnel Rats, these rats almost never wear shields, and occasionally they will go in for a quick melee strike which is usually done via a powerful long-distance leap that is capable of knocking enemies back. They will also stop to pick up any loot they find on the battlefield. They can be seen patroling the Grinders area of Lynchwood riding armored skags.


  • Unlike most other types of rats, Field Rats wear no gas masks.
  • Their name remains unchanged in all game modes.
