Mutagens are special items in game that you can find that will give you buffs and special perks for your skills and abilities. Here is a list of the different mutagens that can help you in game and where to find them:
Art of War: this mutagen will give you a huge boost in your reflexes in combat. You’ll find this mutagen in three different areas in X-Men Origins: Wolverine to help you: when you save Wraith in the Sentinel area, right over the console that you have to use to freeze yourself during the Raven’s Explanation area, and right before you meet Prototype at Alkali Lake it’s on a ledge nearby.
Blood Rage: this mutagen will only help you when you’re almost dead, as it will help you do more damage to your enemies. This one is also found in three places in the game: when you first get to Alkali Lake you take the first left and you’ll see it at the bottom of some steps in the very back corner to the left where you have to put the C4 on the truck, in the 52 Pickup area where you encounter the Assassin in a room on your right, and finally during the Raven’s Explanation area where you have to get the cake by moving the teleporter over to the right.
Experienced: this mutagen helps to give you extra experience from each mob you take out. This one is found in three different areas of the game as well: in the Finding Agent Zero level at the very top of the broken steps that go over a waterfall, at the Weapon X area where Anna’s cell is, and at Alkali Lake right under where Nord is when he fires at you as you are trying to get to him.
Healing Factor: this mutagen helps to lower your cooldown on regeneration (healing) so that you can heal faster in battles. You’ll find this mutagen in three different spots in game: where you fight Sentinel you need to move the teleporter through the left wall, after you cross the bridge where the chopper is starting to attack you at Alkali Lake you will see a ladder that goes up to the top of a tower, and finally at the Weapon X area you will find it on top of a power cell after you lose your ability to regenerate.
Inner Rage: this mutagen is used to help you get extra rage from each mob you take down. You’ll find this one in three places as well: in the Sentinel area right after the big hand lowers, behind you at the very beginning of the Wideawake Level, and at the Weapon X area where you have to pull the truck out to get up to the highest platform.
Rampage: this mutagen will up your maximum rage. This one can be found in three areas as well: at the Weapon X area where you head out of Frost’s Lab you will find it in the last room on the right, in the Sentinel area where the big hand has to be moved you’ll find it by a set of tracks, and after you go down the bridge where the heli is attacking you at Alkali Lake there is an area to your right filled with mobs.
Samurai: this mutagen will build up your reflexes for combat faster than normal. You’ll find this mutagen in three different areas in X-Men Origins: Wolverine also: at the Weapon X area in a small room that is on your left as you are following the scientists, during the Sentinel area in the room where the power cell is, and during the Betrayal area where you have to double jump to your right at the very beginning of the level.
Savage: this mutagen will give you health when you do damage to a foe. You will again find this one in three areas in the game: right outside of the building where Assassins breaks through the window you have to go out the window after you kill them all, when you are doing Raven’s Explanation after you get the key you will see an elevator that will take you up and then you’ll head over and go up on the other elevator, and at Alkali Lake you have to kick over a tower and then go across it to the right and you will see both a set of tags and the cave where this one is.
Shredder: this mutagen will up the damage that you do from your Fury Attacks. This one is found in three areas also: when you are at the beginning of Chapter 5 you will see a moving floor that has spikes on it you’ll find the mutagen on the left wall where you’ll see a boarded up door that you have to break down, at the very beginning of the Raven’s Explanation area, and at the beginning of the Alkali Lake area you just have to turn around before you move and it is right in front of you.
Unstoppable: this mutagen will reduce the damage that you take on during battle. You will find this one in three areas as well: to the right on the floor that lowers during the Chapter 2 area, during the Chapter 5 area where the floor raises after you do the puzzle, and during the Betrayal area where the statues move you will find it under the steps in front of the first statue.
Vitality: this mutagen is used to up the maximum amount of health you have. This one is found in three different areas too: at Alkali Lake in the cave where you also will find the WoW trophy, at the Weapon X area in a room after the turrent and two moving shields right before you get your healing ability back (pretty close to the Healing Factor mutagen), and when you are doing Raven’s Explanation you will find it on top of a ladder where the moving platforms are.
