Nuclear War Experts Are Not Happy About Fallout 76’s Casual Use of Nukes

Nuclear war experts have come forward to say that they are not impressed with Fallout 76 Nukes as such weapons shouldn’t be used casually in video games. Since the reveal of Fallout 76 nukes, many fans and critics have thought of this as a step too far.

“ICBMs are not fun. Or funny,” that’s what Tom Nichols, a professor at the U.S. Navy War College and the author of “No Use: Nuclear Weapons and U.S. National Security,” said to Motherboard.

The concerns make sense as nuclear weapons are the most destruct man-made weapons. Using such a destructive weapon in a casual manner in a video game isn’t appropriate.

But at least they are making it hard for the player triggers an explosion. You will need to find unlock codes by completing the main questline. After completing it, players can find these nuclear launch codes hidden in the massive world of Fallout.

Moreover, fans have been worried that these Fallout 76 nukes will take away all the fun. Though, it’s now been confirmed that the players will be allowed to fast travel away from a nuke to avoid being turned into ashes.

To run away from a nuke, you’ll have about 3 minutes to fast travel to your camp, vault or to anyone in your team. But make sure that you are not engaged in a fight as it’ll restrict you from doing so.

Fallout 76 stress test just got concluded on Xbox One. But Bethesda has confirmed through Twitter that another one is coming before the game launches next month. It’s also expected to launch on PS4 and PC this time as hinted by Pete Hines.

Graphics analysis of the game has also revealed that it is a downgrade when compared to Fallout 4. Fallout 4 manages to run at 4K resolution on Xbox One X but the upcoming Fallout game hardly manages to reach 75% of that resolution.

Other comparisons have revealed that ammo weighs less now but Bobby pins are now heavy. Pete Hines has also confirmed that Mods will be a part of the game but won’t launch until November of 2019. Mods will be available on PC and consoles.

Those who have pre-ordered the game will be able to play its beta later this month starting with the players on Xbox One followed by PC and PS4.

Fallout 76 will release on November 14, 2018, for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
