Fallout 76: If the cannibals don’t get you, the moths will

Level 31. Nothing like zoning into an area in Fallout 76 that is crawling with super mutants wielding automatic weapons. And there’s nothing like realizing another player is there and happy to team up to take the mutants down. It was a fierce fight that killed both of us once apiece, but in the end we prevailed. It’s just too bad I couldn’t do more than emote my appreciation.

I have so many quests at this point and don’t know which ones are more important. So I don’t let the clutter get in my head; I clear my quest tracker and select just one at random and go for it. In this case, it’s helping out the crazy Raider robot Rose make in-roads with that faction. At least it’s led me to some interesting places, such as this mining monument (which comes with an audio tour, no less!).

It’s post-apocalyptic movie or game law, that sooner or later you have to have an inn where people are trapped into becoming meals for local cannibals. I actually only discovered this one during this playthrough because they don’t show up unless you sleep in a bed for a bit.

Fallout 76 has fun with dialogue options! Guess I haven’t eaten anyone yet. That’s probably a good thing.

Following the questline led me to one of the two big Wastelander factions, the settlers at Foundation. I guess if you’re going for nice people with sane architecture, this is the way to go.

I came upon a Vengeful Mothman, and unlike previous encounters with his kinder siblings, this dude kicked my butt so hard that I didn’t even have time to get off a stimpack before I was dead. So maybe don’t go ticking off any plus-sized moths? That’s a good life lesson.

One thought on “Fallout 76: If the cannibals don’t get you, the moths will

  1. I’m a big fan of the Fallout series, especially Fallout 1, Fallout 2 and Fallout: Tactics. So, when the Fallout series of video games was brought into the modern 3D age, I was overjoyed. And the releases since that point have been spot-on.
