E3 2018: How Fallout 76's Nuclear Missile Work
Won't you be my neighbor?
During its E3 2018 press conference, Bethesda took the chance to let everyone know that players will be able to launch nuclear missiles. And for better or for worse, there are no limits to what can be targeted.
In a playful trailer for Fallout 76, Bethesda detailed how players can work together to hunt down codes to nuclear weapons. After players acquire these codes, whether they diplomatically worked with fellow players or murdered anyone who had a code, they need to find a nuclear missile. Bethesda let everyone know that these missiles are scattered throughout the wasteland.
Once a player finds a missile, they just need to insert their completed launch code, pick a target, and then launch. The missile will destroy anything it hits, whether that's a forest of wildlife, a settlement, or another player's hidden base. Once the dust has settled, players can take advantage of the fallout to gather rare resources. They just need to make sure they're wearing the right gear. Radiation levels after a nuclear strike will be high and cause fatal amounts of damage for players traveling without a hazmat suit.
Fallout 76 is coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC on November 14, and you can read up on it as well as all the other major Bethesda announcements here.
