Night Terrors are creatures in the Wasteland Series of games
Night Terror is a mutant located in Mind Maze. He is known for his extremely high health, making him a dangerous opponent. He also gives you a whopping 32,000 XP once beaten and 64,000 XP if killed in melee fashion. It shares the same sprite as the Night Screamer.
Can be found in the second level of the Lab in Darwin Village.
Depending on the path taken, the Night Terror is either at the very end the Darwin Village Lab (2nd level) map, past all the hostiles and the primary objective, or very near the beginning of the map, if the shortcut route is taken. The shortcut route contains a number of medium to high level difficulty checks, including 6 laser traps, a container (that can simply be shot), and 4 doors that need to be bypassed.
It is guarded/imprisoned by three 20mm turrets, (that are initially hostile to the player, but can be hacked with Comp Sci) and is behind a final door requiring a very high Comp Sci level to bypass, or a password ICEBERG; if you have none of the aforementioned, but are good with heavy weapons, you can simply blast open any of the doors with a Sabot Rocket. If released, it will follow you, and you can give it "candy" (flesh of some sort).
Killing Night Terror awards 20 experience to the party. Night terror seems to explode if driven to about 75% of it's maximum CON. He drops a variety of loot that includes different junk items (about 16 to 20 items). some of which have use, such as Pigeon Shit) in addition to about 30 scrap. All in all, there seems to be little benefit in killing Night Terror as he proves a much more useful ally than an enemy.
UPDATE 7.29.2015: Killing the Night Terror once asleep yields 3200 experience to the party.
Explodes doing around 120-130 damage after killing
While Night Terror is not considered a party member and cannot be recruited into the Rangers, (s)he will follow the party indefinitely. While Night Terror cannot be dismissed normally, giving him/her a large amount of "candy" will cause her/him to become sleepy and remain at that location for a certain length of time. If this happens in a random encounter it may be possible for you to "lose" Night Terror in the wastes.
