​Fallout 76 Nukes Won’t Target Players But Will Still Warn Them

Fallout 76 players won't be able to target each other with nukes but they will still receive a warning if it's coming their way.

It doesn't mean they're useless, however, but it just stops them being so overpowered. If you've got one heading towards you it will still be a scary experience and you'll need to act quickly if you want to evade.

Bethesda's senior vice president Pete Hines told FZ.se: "When a nuke is coming in on an area of the map, the people there will get notified.

To keep the superweapon from being an overused feature, each player will have to follow a step by step process to unlock one. Don't expect it to be a quick task, however, as specific hurdles will be placed at every checkpoint and players will have to find code after code.

"You have to get parts of a code so you have one full code.

"You then have to get to the place where you go to enter that code, which is obviously not just open doors and walk right in."

Why would you spend your time trying to do this, though? Well, higher-rated and rarer items will be dropped in the nuke landing zone for a select period of time, and it will kill anyone who ignored the warnings.

"You can stand there and not do anything, but you could also get the hell out of the way and then you won't get nuked."

Bethesda's Fallout 76 is set to be completely different to anything the series has offered before, as it will focus on being an online survival RPG rather than a conventional single player game. The release is set to be 14 November this year for Xbox One, PS4, and PC, and is expected to be one of the biggest games of the year.
