NUKA-WORLD ON TOUR

The Nuka-World on Tour traveling road show has finished unpacking their tents, stocked the Nuka-Cade with rewards and is ready for visitors! Venture to the fairgrounds West of Lake Reynolds in the Ash Heap to play three brand-new Public Events, earn rewards in the Nuka-Cade, and unleash the largest Region Boss we’ve implemented into Fallout 76 to date: The Ultracite Titan!

NEW PUBLIC EVENTS

  • Spin the Wheel: Join Bottle and Cappy in the Big Top Tent to become a contestant during the “Spin the Wheel” gameshow, where anything is possible! The rules are simple: Press the button to spin the giant wheel inside the Big Top Tent and then take on any challenge it selects. Defend our beloved mascots from unique combinations of enemy creatures, go Brahmin tipping, dodge exploding “Fragstags” and more! Contestants who survive five rounds will walk away with fabulous prizes!
  • Most Wanted: Mosey on over to Wild West Town, where Gunther is putting on a rootin’, tootin’ good time during his Wild West Show. All he needs to set the stage is a few hotshot gunslingers like you to perform as Outlaws. Once the event begins, fleece the town and its citizens of their belongings and stash any ill-gotten valuables into your Getaway Wagon. Then, prepare to defend your haul against the long, robotic arm of the Law. Topple the Sherriff during the ensuing shootout and you will be able to ride off into the sunset with some loot.
  • Tunnel of Love: This romantic ride is the perfect attraction for lovestruck couples who are looking for a little quality time together amidst the flurry of lights and sounds at the carnival. At least it will be. Once it’s ready. Mr. Lovely just needs a few helping hands to make repairs and to finish decorating the Tunnel of Love before it can whisk swooning sweethearts away to a land of enchantment. Don’t worry, trekking into the depths of a mine shaft to hang some heart-shaped décor should be a safe and speedy venture for a sturdy explorer such as yourself. After all, it has been abandoned for quite some time. . .

Please note: For the first four weeks of this Update, Nuka-World on Tour Public Events will have priority when new Public Events appear and will start at the top of the hour.

WIN PRIZES AT THE NUKA-CADE!

That’s not all that’s arriving with the tour! Grab a fistful of Caps and head to the Nuka-Cade to try your hand at carnival games that are sure to be fun for the whole family! It’s got all your favorites, like “Bandit Roundup,” “Nuka Zapper Race” and “Whack-A-Commie.” We’re also proud to introduce “Bottle Blaster,” which will truly test your might. As you play, you will earn Nuka-Cade points, which you can redeem to get exciting prizes.

NEW REGION BOSS: THE ULTRACITE TITAN

Pete has been hard at work trying to repair the air filters throughout the carnival, but the parts he needs are scattered deep within the earth in an abandoned mineshaft. He’s also convinced that a massive creature has made its home down there. Pete is hoping that some keen Dwellers can investigate, and then launch an attack that’s powerful enough to blast the fiend to smithereens from afar. However, those who undertake this dangerous task should keep in mind that if the monster survives, a direct confrontation with the beast will be unavoidable.


SEASON 11: NUKA-WORLD

Nuka-World isn’t limited to just the travelling roadshow, with today’s update we have a brand-new Nuka-Cola themed season to quench your thirst! Tour around Nuka-World, visiting iconic locations such as Dry Rock Gulch, Safari Adventure, and more. Complete Daily and Weekly Challenges to earn Score, and unlock new items such as Sheepsquatch Power Armor Paints, C.A.M.P. items, consumables, a new Lite Ally and more!

This season, we’re also introducing a brand-new reward to the Scoreboard: the Scout’s Banner! As an honorary member of the Pioneer Scouts, they’ve entrusted you with a banner you can raise during battle against NPC’s to give you and your team members that extra boost to turn the tides of a tough fight! These banners grant one of 5 bonuses that will last for you and any players in your vicinity when the banner is raised.

Scout’s Banner bonuses are:

  • Battle Medic: Heal 20% HP
  • Battle Driven: Restore all AP
  • Battle Forged: Repair weapon condition by 10%
  • Battle Hardened: Repair armor condition by 10%
  • Battle Vision: Highlight enemies for 5 seconds

NEW FEATURE: FALLOUT 1ST AMMO STORAGE BOX

Fallout 1st members will receive a new membership feature: the Ammo Storage Box! The Ammo Storage Box works similarly to the Scrap Box already included with your Fallout 1st membership, offering unlimited space to store all your excess munitions, with the exception of Plasma Core and Fusion Cores.

This new feature is a complimentary additional benefit to Fallout 1st memberships. Learn all the benefits of becoming a Fallout 1st member here.


BUILD LIKE NEVER BEFORE WITH THE FREE CAM

Free cam is a new quality-of-life feature that we’re introducing to Fallout 76. When inside build mode, select X on keyboard, or Start on controller to enter Free cam mode. In this mode, the camera detaches from your character, allowing you to freely build at new heights, pan through walls, doors, windows, and floors.


ADDITIONAL DESIGN CHANGES & IMPROVEMENTS

WEAPON CHANGES

Players who tried out Nuka-World on Tour while it was on the Public Test Server are aware that we originally planned to release a new system that combats illegal attachment combinations to weapons that violate the EULA. We need a bit more time to implement this than originally projected, and as a result we will not be releasing this system with today’s update.

As we continue to work on it, we will keep you up to date on its arrival in a future Inside the Vault.
