Posted By | On 15th, Apr. 2016 Under Article, Video Game Tips

Fallout 4 has received its second bit of DLC, Wasteland Workshop, this month- and while this is definitely not quite as extensive as last month’s Automatron was, there’s still quite a bit to get a handle on this time around that you may need help with.

That’s what we are here for- if you got yourself Wasteland Workshop, this guide will help. From building your own arenas to catching your very own Deathclaw, to the Trophies and Achievements this expansion adds, this guide has it all. We have also included guides for Yao Guai meat locations, every item in the game, item requirements you would need to meet so that you can build stuff, and more.


Wasteland Workshop‘s primary attraction is the ability to build even more new structures- in combination, these should all help you build just about any building or structure imaginable. In this section of the guide, we list all the new structures that you can build, alongside their material requirements:

Wasteland Workshop adds a whole lot of building options to the game- but undoubtedly the primary attraction here is the arena, which the players can use to make various dissidents caught across the Wasteland, such as raiders and yes, Deathclaws, battle each other.

Before capturing any wild animals to use in your arena, make sure you have the Animal Friend and Wasteland Whisperer perks at level 1. The Fusion Generator also requires a Science perk at level 4.


Of course, now that you have your arenas, you still need to have creatures in them to battle gladiotorally for your pleasure and amusement, right? That’s where this portion of the guide will help you- the video below should help you catch a whole host of the creatures found out in the Wasteland, and then to make them fight in Arenas, for the entertainment of the people living in your settlements.

But first, here is a list of all the creatures you can find on the Wasteland, and capture:

  • Gunner
  • Insect
  • Raider
  • Super Mutant
  • Deathclaw
  • Mirelurk
  • Radscorpion
  • Dog
  • Mole Rat
  • Mutant Hound
  • Feral Ghoul


But while Ghouls and raiders in arenas battling it out is all well and good, the best entertainment can only be had if you catch the single most terrifying creature found in the Wasteland, and then throw it into the arena for your entertainment as well- the dreaded Deathclaw.

First, you may need some Yao Guai meat- this can be used to restore HP by a bit, yes, but it is also instrumental in luring a Deathclaw to you:

  • Head to the Boston Bugle building, and go to its southwestern end. There, inside a park, you should find a Yao Guai
  • Go to the Rocky Narrows Park- there should be at least two more Yao Guais spawned here.
  • Fairline Hills Estate is near the center of the map- Yao Guais also spawn here.

Once you have the meat, it’s time to go catch the big game. The video below should help you with the process of capturing and taming a Deathclaw.


Yes, here’s an exhaustive guide to every single item that you can find for yourself in Fallout 4: Wasteland Workshop, as well as the uses that they can all be put to.
