    Basically a mega-steroid that turns your skin green and shrinks your brain (among other things).

    Maybe if all you're doing is looking at it from a surface analysis. But no, from what it ACTUALLY does, it's not just "a mega-steroid that turns your skin green" and etc etc. Quad helix and all that mumbo jumbo. Also that steroids are commonly misconstrued to lead to the qualities which most Super Mutants exhibited to exaggerated proportions, though that's a rather separate topic... XD

    Well, as childish as it is, a bit of snickering at some harmless virtual violence isn't so evil every once in a while.Especially if it is critically punching a champion boxer in the crotch and causing him to K.O immediately.

    In fac-Oh dear.

    Why are you guys talking about Super Mutant ballsacks.

    pls stop

    Do they even HAVE ballsacks?

    I always assumed Super Mutants had no genitalia at all, what with the sterility and lack of secondary sex characteristics, I always just thought they kind of shriveled away as part of the mutation process.

    Genitalia are primary sexual characteristics and are not affected by FEV beyond sterilisation of the gametes.

    Is that a steel jockstrap what are supermutants on wikia pictures wearing? If so, no wonder that groin shots have been removed in F3/FNV, it'd surely hurt Courier's hands when punching that armored thing.

    Mutants (well, save from those horridly disfigured) are not sterile in the Fallout universe.

    No, they are. That's why the Master's plan would never work.

    IRRC, Vree did the autopsy of one, and could not tell if it was male or female.

    Vree did indeed do an autopsy and realized super mutants are sterile
    IIRC The FEV virus in one of the in game holodisks is said to attack the sperm and egg cells because they lack a full set of chromosomes and thus it sees them as "damaged" and it will proceed to "fix" them by giving them a full set of chromosomes. The inability for sperm and egg to then join together results in super mutants being sterile from the very process of the FEV mutation.

    You are also able to convince The Master to ask his own mutants about their inability to reproduce and he will find out directly from them.
    (I've literally only actually physically killed The Master like 3 times)

    super mutants have genitalia, but are not able to reproduce.
    in-game characters may lie or be misinformed, but the fallout bible says so.

    While I agree about the sterility (otherwise a very important plotpoint in Fallout 1 would fall apart) I have to ask which "bible"? I assume you don't mean the document that is called that way but explicitly states in it that it doesnt want to be understood as "lore bible".

    where exactly?
    of course, informations in the bible are sometimes incomplete and some problems stay unresolved (like ghouls and FEV), but I've always thought that informations there are canonically correct.

    besides, we can be sure that super mutants can't reproduce, but I think they do have genitalia.
    - you can get Marcus a girl in cat's paw
    - you can seduce Harry when Vault Dweller's a woman, so he has to have some libido
    - come on, people's ballsacks and phalluses would just fall off after dipping in FEV? and women's vaginas would disappear? how would they pee?
    - finally, Master wouldn't be so stupid to don't know that his mutants can't reproduce if they didn't have genitalia

    I know that are just minor things, but hey, they're there.
    I also know that Vree described super mutants as sexually undifferentiated and I don't know what to think about it. there could be different kinds of super mutants - those who do have genitalia and those who don't - FEV doesn't work the same way for everyone. or maybe the mutant Vree was working on didn't mutate correctly. or maybe they do have some different genitalia than humans and Vree didn't recognize them (okay, I've gone too far with this one). or maybe this is just another unresolvable matter, like said ghouls and FEV.

    I don't think Vree mentioned them lacking genitalia, I thought they lacked secondary sex characteristics and are sterile, I know her report only mentions sterility.

    well, it seems you're right

    so now we can all sleep at night knowing that super mutants do have ballsacks.
