Fallout 76: Bethesda Says Nukes Are Difficult To Obtain, Simple To Avoid

Fallout 76

Bethesda’s upcoming Fallout 76 has been creating quite the hype train since all of the glorious details were revealed during this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo. While some fans are not quite sure about the title due to its online-only nature, others are excited to jump onto some country roads and head to a place where they belong. We can’t promise that there won’t be more John Denver jokes ahead.

That said, Fallout 76 fans are surely going to enjoy (or hate) the nukes that can be launched at any given time during the game. When Todd Howard informed the audience at E3 that nukes would be accessible, gamers were already plotting the destruction the would be able to bring forth to West Virginia. However, thanks to a recent interview, we now know that said nukes are not going to be so easy to get, but avoiding them should be simple enough.

“Getting the ability to launch a nuke is not easy,” Bethesda’s Pete Hines told FZ. “You have to get a number of different code pieces so you have one full code. You also have to get to the place where you enter that code, which is obviously not just ‘open the doors and walk right in.’ Then you target a place on the map. You can’t target an individual.”

So, there won’t be any revenge nukings taking place in Fallout 76. Got it. “They’re not easy to get, they’re not going to be firing off every five minutes, and when a nuke is incoming, people get notified,” Hines continued. “So you could just stand there and not do anything, but you could also get the hell out of the way and you won’t get nuked.” It would seem that nukes might not be as big of a deal as some might think in the upcoming game. Sure, keep an eye out for them, but do not fear the nukes.

Fallout 76 is set to arrive on November 14 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
