Just completed the “Launch a Nuke” quest in Fallout 76. Here’s my brief review of the process:
- Take lots of ammo, and lots of stimpaks. I am NOT a “good” gamer by any means, merely average, and I needed ALL of what I took. If I didn’t have my “All Rise” rocket sledgehammer I would have been screwed.
- DO NOT SCRAP STUFF when you get to the Mainframe Cores section of the task. You will LOSE all the cores you just rebuilt and then you have to spend hours and wave after wave of level 50 bots looking for the replacements that are hidden around the rooms. Ugh.
- DO USE http://nukacrypt.com/ to decrypt your launch codes. I went around and gathered all eight launch codes. I’m not positive I really needed to, but I didn’t want to get to the end and have it go “awww sorry you need the codes! bye now!” and me throw the controller across the room.
The image from this post is me watching the ensuing incineration from my CAMP overlooking the Whitespring Resort valley. I tried to get my kit together and then go farm some radgoodies but THEN FALLOUT CRASHED and I was done.
I’m just thankful it didn’t do it near the end of the launch process. It actually kicked me once real close to the beginning which wasn’t that big of a deal. If it would have been later after burning through a ton of ammo and stims I would have been royally PO’d. Bethesda, get this stability thing under control.
Now to see what’s next in the “Overseer” quest. I thought maybe that was part of the line there, but apparently not.
