We’ve seen a nuke go off in Fallout 76‘s beta, but we’ve never seen what happens when one’s launched at an enemy-riddled fissure site.
We certainly do now.
Thanks to YouTuber Nickaroo93, we’ve learned that a nuke launched at a fissure site will bring about the literal apocalypse, including an event that features a level 95 Scorchbeast Queen, surrounded by high-level Deathclaws and the like.
Check it out — it’s scary stuff.
If you’d rather avoid this crazy event but still want to launch a nuke, Nickaroo93 has a video to help you achieve that. To avoid crazy enemies, try launching at a relatively remote location (ie if you aim for a town, be prepared for a bunch of nuclear-powered baddies).
A video tutorial on how to launch a nuke is below.
