After launching the first end-game in the world last week, the group Fallout 76 the players wanted to run the experiment. What would happen if they launched several atomic bombs at the same time? It turned out that exploding too many bombs will overload the game.
nukes, Fallout & # 39; s take on air raids, they are mechanics that allow players to transform their location so that they spawn higher level enemies with better loot. Naming a location should not be easy: you have to collect a lot of codes that are reborn randomly, and then you have to come up with a cipher to use these codes. However, some players have automated the encryption process, and in addition accumulated a lot of codes during the game. So now Fallout 76 players must make decisions about unloading the load on the map.
It's a decision that affects many players and does not come easily. Already, many of them report waste in Morgantown, one of the first locations that players visit when they start the game. Needless to say, unprepared players will not be able to cope with difficult monsters Fallout 76 generates in the nuclear landing zone. Fortunately, the game warns residents about the release of nuclear weapons in a given place.
YouTuber Nickaroo93 and his team launched three atomic bombs over the weekend, and after a few seconds they were kicked out of the server. The game stopped responding:
Server failure was not a surprise for the crew. In the clip, they hypothesize that this can happen. Nevertheless, the gang wanted to see it first hand, said Nickaroo93 The Verge.
"There are three sites in the game that you can use to extract atomic bombs, so initially we wanted to see if it was possible to launch nuclear weapons from any site, "said Nickaroo93." When we found out that it was possible, we decided to start them immediately the same area. "
Since the announcement, there has been anxiety about nuclear weapons and whether players can use their power to overwhelm others on the server. And while it is true that the Nickaroo93 group now has enough influence to influence the game of all players on their server, they do not necessarily think that mechanics are unbalanced.
"Personally, I do not see it as abuse," said Nickaroo93. "If a player is on the server after starting Nuke, and they do not want to deal with it, they can simply leave their world and join another." Whenever I saw someone launch another bomb during the game, I was excited about the prospect of discovering something new! "
He believes, however, that Bethesda can improve the nuking mechanics. In the current version, players can simply collect a nuclear card and then generate an online code through the website, which is possible to do in about an hour after reaching a high enough level, says Nickaroo93. Bethesda seems to be open to finessing the nuke mechanic: a patch came out in the morning that fixed the problem with how the falling nuclear codes are falling. For now, however, the Nickaroo93 team will continue to experiment with atomization.
"The next thing we want to try is launching nuclear weapons in three different regions of the map to see if servers can handle the load," said Nickaroo93. "The idea of exploring three different irradiated areas sounds amazing and we hope it is possible."
