Although a nuclear war has leveled settlements to ash and has created all sorts of radioactive animals and environments in its wake. However, that isn’t the end of the destruction that nuclear warheads can bring.
Thanks to multiple nuclear sites on the map, players can do much more damage than just bullets. Find out more about triggering and defending against Fallout 76 Nukes.
Fallout 76 Nukes
As teased at E3 2018, players can team up to find nuclear launch codes through a series of clues from the environment to find the silos and activate them.
We used “team up” instead of solo since usually these codes will be guarded heavily by high-level monsters like Scorchbeast.
More so, since many players will form teams to easy up the whole procedure, a lone player may be given a tough time against groups with similar interest in mind. That said, if you’re still up for the challenge of being the one-man-army, be our guest!
After collecting the clues and deciphering the nuke codes, you’ll need to approach one of the nuclear facilities to get the missiles up and running. Again, these are perilous grounds which will pose many threats in the form of dangerous and tough enemies, both players and AI.
It should be noted that you can only target specific regions of the map rather than individual foes or your arch nemeses or rival groups.
Why Launch Nuclear Strikes?
Well, the first reason is obviously clear. You’ve got some sort of contempt or rivalry with another group and you want to rain havoc onto them. Sure, you can go guns blazing but it wouldn’t make such an impact as a mini-nuclear bomb would.
Not only will you turn your rivals into corpses but completely demolish and rend their camps, including every resource they’ve gathered, useless. Do note that the camp destruction is only temporary and it can be rebuilt, so yea, it’s not a total waste.
The second reason is in the vein of a more political reason than a personal war. Once you target a certain area of the map to be bombed, the particular spot will remain irradiated or radioactive for four in-game hours.
During this time, although there will be creatures looming around, should your team have the courage, they can obtain valuable and rare resources.
Just make sure you’re stepping into this radioactive region all suited up with the Power Armor that boosts resistance to just toxic and irradiated items.
The last reason is what Joker would share some relation to launching a nuclear strike just to see the world burn! Yes, that totally happens.
Entire structures and landscapes change in appearance and properties should a nuclear strike hit with full devastating force.
Although, after four hours, the land will return to what it was before the strike, there’s still some nuisance during that time in terms of players swarming the area for resources.
Avoiding Nuclear Strikes
Thankfully, whenever a nuclear strike’s heading your way, you get a warning message three minutes before the strike lands and the mushroom cloud forms.
During this time, you can pack-up your base, quickly evacuate the area and move to a safer one.
Even if you got a bit lazy or panicked a little too much to get hit by the bomb before packing up, your life’s work of scavenging resources for your base isn’t lost. You can right after, rebuild your C.A.M.P. at another spot.
Therefore, the camp’s back but what about your pride? Yep, only one way to solve it, launch a nuclear strike of your own! Better hurry and search for those codes, eh?
