It's important to note that Mole Miners are highly organized and travel in groups. They follow a hierarchical structure, with foremen and supervisors leading the lower-ranking miners. This societal structure makes them strong, as they often attack in coordinated efforts.

Defeating Mole Miners can yield valuable rewards, including weapons, ammunition, and rare crafting materials. However, the true prize comes from the elusive Treasure Hunter Mole Miners. These passive variants periodically roam Appalachia, carrying coveted Mole Miner Pails filled with unique loot.

Nevertheless, here are all known Mole Miner variants:

  • Mole Miner
  • Mole Miner Scraper
  • Mole Miner Digger
  • Mole Miner Rockbreaker
  • Mole Miner Foreman
  • Mole Miner Supervisor
  • Glowing Mole Miner
  • Mole Miner Sapper
  • Mole Miner Dredger
  • Mole Miner Skullcrusher
  • Deadly Mole Miner
  • Scorched Mole Miner (all regular variants have a Scorched counterpart)
  • Mole Miner Juggernaut (Daily Ops boss)
  • Treasure Hunter Mole Miner




Whether you are looking to complete quests or find materials, knowing the spawn locations of Mole Miners is important. Make sure to gear up with the best armor set if you can, because facing groups of these miners can be a daunting task. So suit up, head to the Ash Heap and Savage Divide, and hunt these mutated miners.
