Didn't drop a body though :(
-First to kill the Merga Wraith-
(test build 0.974)
Now Dan has to confirm it's not a bug and should be possible :D
If it's legit, then congrats mate!

Being no fan of "invincible" enemies, pleased to see this is possible (if incredibly hard/rare!).
i was wondering if it dropped loot
And oldie and I would say goodie but not particularly
He didn't drop a thing. No Loot, no body. I suspect this is because he isn't meant to be killed.
Good kill, 1 shot kill I assume?
As you've got a full clip in the shotty -1 shell, and the rest of your pack is full.
If it was a 1 shot, maybe the shotty is the way to go.
A.K.A DapperDogman. Smashing.
Do you like my mask? It's a cool new toy I found.
The kill shot was a 1 shot. I had hit him and injured him before that with both my compound bow and my shotgun, but he would always heal back up after a round or two of combat. You don't see the missing ammo b/c I keep my reloads in my jean pockets and that part is covered by the expanded text window.
I've killed him twice now and both times it was 00 buckshot to the lower chest causing acute bleeding in the lungs, so I'd say its a bug related to that (assuming he's supposed to be invincible).
All I know is I don't go anywhere without a shotgun loaded with 00 buckshot in one hand, just in case.... :P
Probably down to the fact that it inflicts cluster wounds.
You must have blown so many of his organs to bits that he couldn't just heal it off.
Took a LOT longer, but Merga Wraith down in test build 0.975t!
I went through all the ammo for my .308, all my 00 buckshot and finally put a .45 FMJ in his head:
Also, the weirdest thing happened while I was fighting him, he blacked out from exhaustion and fell unconscious...
But then he got right back up and ran after me while under condition "Blacking out" :P
"Finished him with a .45 FMJ"
Classy. I like it.
I'm your friendly neighborhood nutcase. My spear be pointy, my stew be odd. Ask the trader guy near the DMC, I sell him meat on a regular basis.
This goes to show that when god bleeds, will the people stop fearing him? New challenge of manliness, take off the talisman and kill merga wraith. I'm going to stop selling my ammo and buy more for this new challenge. Anyone who can take it down with melee weapons will be the ultimate warrior of the wastes. Save beforehand in case the odds turn against you. >:D
Maybe he should be a boss???!!!! OH THAT WOULD BE AWESOME! You could get the Merga Wraith Cloak or something that just scares ppl away... okay maybe not something that OP but still, have a really awesome drop like lots of money or Nanos or ammo. I love high risk/high reward combat! :D
If you love a flower, do not pick it up. For if you do, it will die and cease to be what you love. So if you love a flower, let it be. Love is about appreciation, not possesion.
It's not the first time I've read this idea - and I still dislike it. I don't like the idea of it being like typical heroic RPG of 'slash hard monster for it's cool drops'. The best reward should be the fact you get to live another day with one less horrible creature which could get you one day. Things like wraiths could be additional danger in an area with good loot, yes, but on their own they shouldn't even pose a gain/risk dilemma - that will cheapen them.
The Merga Wraith should drop something unique but useless as a trophy, maybe something that belongs the player character, for example a family photo.
Ran around with a clown mask before it was cool
Or a potato.
okay i get it. dont have it dont good stuff but only stuff thats quest related to Phillip. also if i got a patato from that thing, it would make day. i love random stuff like that
You could start a potato farm with it! :D
"You know you're a cannibal when you have 2 backpacks and a shopping cart full of human meat."
Well that eliminates the biggest danger in the game! starvation! .... woah i just realized.. food is like super rare but not once did i die feom starvation. what a paradox
At least explorative players can at least find a great way to entertain themselves. Unless it gets patched.
What if the potato has a picture of his dog on it?
Just curious; if you take off the medallion and you kill the wraith, and you don't put on the necklace back on, would another wraith respawn and try to kill you? Or just the one?
I'll use spoiler tags in case anyone wants to avoid seeing the answer.
However, I've added some content for those that do manage to defeat this foe.

I think I have read about the reward for killing the Merga Wraith somewhere. Here it is
Attempt to kill one of these little buggers number over 9000: Failed.
Reason: SOB to the max.
Keep at it :) My first attempt was with 30+ ammo, and only near the end did I score a critical hit. From what I've heard, 00 birdshot are particularly effective.
