So I'm really enjoying my vacation here at Nuka World and loving the newest and last official DLC for Fallout 4.

I'm going to talk quite a bit about what I've been doing here, but that means quite a few spoilers. So if you've not finished or have not played it yet, and you do not want to be spoiled, then stop reading here and exit the thread. If you don't mind being spoiled or have finished yourself, then by all means keep reading.

This DLC was a huge download at over 3 gigabytes. I had fortunately bought the Early Bird special when it was offered at a very low price and have since enjoyed getting each and every DLC Fallout 4 had to offer automatically.

One of the things like like about DLCs like Nuka World, is how it's a area content adder. Meaning that it's not just adding items to the game, or extra quests in existing areas, but is a full blown add on with it's own world, quests and items. It certainly makes the game have that much more to play and involve yourself in, and can provide hours and hours more of entertainment.

Nuka World is most certainly different from other DLCs that Bethesda has given us for the Fallout universe. In all their Fallout games, we normally play the hero who saves the day.
Sure, the way you do it can be tailored to how you want to play, and if you replay the game with different characters, it allows you to role play doing different things and different personalites. Such as one time being the gung-ho hero who would be the perfect white knight, goody two shoes type of person.

Or, you can play as a complete jerk with a mean streak a mile wide......or a mixture of the two. It's always completely up to you.

However, at the end of the day, if you follow the main quests, you are normally the guy saving the day, and helping people, who are not quite all that bad. Even the Brotherhood Of Steel or Institutde will feel like that.

Nuka World on the other hand takes us where we've not gone before with Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas. It gives us a chance to work with a group that normally is always pretty much trying to kill us and everything else they see:


Here is your chance to be the head hancho of several groups of Raiders. You can still be that good two shoes guy, or you can be a complete and savage jerk. Now I know that might not appeal to some, but I think Bethesda did a great job in making this work. However, if you decide that you can't work with the Raiders (let's face it...they ain't the best co-workers out there), there is another option which I will tell you about a bit later.

For now, let's jump into Nuka World and let me give you the tour:

Nuka World is HUGE. You have a very large amusement park here that is broken up into several zones, and then you have the world outside the park zones too! Many places to visit and many things to do here.

You'll start out by receiving notice of a radio signal that has gone active. When you tune your pipboy to it, you'll hear a comercial for Nuka World. This will also place a marker on your map, a place located to the very west of the Commonwwealth, where you'll find a tram station that will take you to Nuka world.

When you get there, you'll have to traverse the Gauntlent set up by the raiders for their entertainment, which at the end of it, you'll find Overboss Coulter:

You'll have to find a special way to fight him, because he'll be impervious to all your weapons while that electricity is flowing.

Once you defeat him, you'll be declared the Overboss by Cage, who is trying to help out his fellow Raiders:

Basically the plan is for you to bring the three different groups of Raiders, the Operaters, the Pack, and the Disciples, who are dong infighting with each other. You're going to do this by doing work for them, and by reclaiming different areas of the park that are infested with all sorts of things and then awarding those areas to the different groups of raiders. Here are some of the different groups:

Cage will be willing to be your companion if you want, but you can also come to Nuka World with any of your companions from the Commonwealth.

Now I mentioned earlier that you may not want to play nice with the Raiders, and you don't have to. In fact, you can take maters into your own hands right away if you want, and it's even a quest known as "Open Season", where one of the slaves of the Raiders suggests that you take their leaders out:

I decided to play along with the Raiders at first. I went around and secured all the parts of the park and awarded those locations to different gangs. I even did a side quest one of them asked me to do, which involved me having to travel back to the Commonwealth and have a fist fight with a supermutant.

Yah, you read that right: I had to kill off all his budies, then put my weapon away and duke it out with in with my fists, all so I could put one of those bomb collars on him and order him to Nuka World to be a slave.

Anyways, when I had gotten to the point of clearing out the Park, turns out Cage and them wanted me to then take them on raids into the Commonwealth and take over at least 3 settlements that I'd worked so hard to set up with the Minutemen.

Oh, no....I don't think so! Not after all the hard work I'd done to set them up!

Here was the problem: You can't just kill the leaders of the Raider gangs. If you kill just one, or Cage, it will argo every single Raider that is in Nuka World.

Yah, I'm good.....not that good though.

Takes some planning, but I figured out a way to do it, and it worked. I'm sure others will have their way of doing it, but this is what I did:

From my digs at the top of Fizztop Mountain, I broke out my sniper rifle, and slowly took out every raider I could sight in on. Turns out that while killing one of the leaders will argo all the Raiders, stealth killing the lower rank members does not. In fact, they ignore it.

I don't know about you, but if I was sitting with my fellow Raiders and one of them has their head explode from a sniper round, I'm most certainly going to react to that!

These guys don't.

So after I took out all the regular Raiders that I could from sniping on high, I rode my elevator down and walked around the park doing the same thing: sneaking around and shooting them in the back....making sure I was keeping to non-named characters.

Once that was done, I'd leveled the playing field quite a bit.

Next, I went into each headquarters and took everyone in each out. Now, keep in mind the first place you go to, you will not be argo'ed right away, but once you clear out the place, you will be in the other two.

Time and patients is what it takes.

Eventually I'd cleared out the park of all Raiders and the slaves were quite grateful.

Now, this will fail any other Raider questions you have, but you can still go around and clear out the park and do side quests for those who are not Raiders.

So what places are there? Glad you asked, here's the tour:

Nuka town: This is where you'll be at first, and where the Raider gangs are. There is a market here so you can keep yourself supplied:

The Galactic Zone is HUGE, quite easy to get lost in, and infested with many different kinds of robots trying to kill you:

Kiddie Kingdom. Should be easy pickings right?......Wrong. This place is filled not only with ghouls trying to kill you, but radiation is being spayed all over you. And the Boss Guy here? He teleports....yah......just when you think you have him, he blinks away.

Dry Rock Gultch. Cowboy theme here, with some robots still playing their parts. You ain't lived until you hear a robot say "YEE-HAAAAW!". New creature in here trying to kill you: Blood Worms.

Safari Adventure. Like fighting Deathclaws?....well too bad! In here you'll be fighting GATORCLAWS!....yikes! You'll also meet a cheap ripoff of Tarzan.

The Bottling Plant: You'll be fighting Mirelurks in here...but not just any regular Mirelurks. These have been soaking up Nuka Quantuum for decades.....

However, fighting them is worth it. You'll find this beauty in the bottling plant:

I don't like to wear power armor, but this thing looked quite cool to me.

Here are places outside of the Park.

Want to see the worlds largest fire hydrant? Look no further, it's located just outside of Nuka World!

There is a small town filled with Ghouls:

There is a dam:

There are also many other locations, Red Rocket, a junkyard, farms, individual house, murderess flying ants:

Also, giant grasshopers, two headed antelopes....all sorts of new critters running around.

Now, last thing to talk about: the sodas. There are these mixing stations located around the park. Not in Nuka Town, but the other parts of the park. It allows you to mix different sodas you find, to create new drinks that do special things for you:

Here's some images of the sodas. From left to right in this first one is Nuka Cola, Nuka Quantuum, Nuka Victory, Nuka Quartz, Nuka Cherry and Nuka Grape:

Nuka Cola and Nuka Quantuum have been around since Fallout 3. Nuka Victory and Quartz were added in Fallout New Vegas. Nuka Cherry was added to Fallout 4. And Nuka Grape coems with the Nuka World DLC.

Next is Nuka Wild, Nuka Dark and Nuka Orange, all added with Nuka World:

When you mix the sodas together, and there a lots of different recipes, you'll end up with a bottle that looks like this:

I've not finished the DLC. There are still places I've not explored yet, recipes to go find, and I'm still trying to finish the Hidden Cappy quest (hence the funny looking glasses on my face). However, as a last pic and to close out this OP, guess who is also here at Nuka World?

She came all the way from Fallout 3 at Girdershade to be here at Nuka World. If you do argo the raiders, it's funny to hear her fight, she does quite a bit of screaming at the Raiders, hehehehe.

I'm really enjoying myself with the DLC. It also added stuff to the Commonwealth: the different Raider gangs here in Nuka World are also wandering around in the Commonwealth.

I enjoyed it quite considerably, but have yet to do anything after securing the park. the next step I am basically opposed in doing overall given how much time and effort I put into..well, spoilers, but..seriously..asking me to do that..

There appears to be no option for the "good" player.

Im still playing FO4 as well - I have the DLC's, but i stuck to the vanilla till last weekend.
I dont have the net hooked up at my new house yet so i was at the mercy of my own discretion. I got into the institute and sided with them. Started doing their quests, had to kill my railroad friends and take out the BOS.
Now I didnt like having to do this, but i used my best judgement. (Usually I would google wtf im supposed to do when faced with those decision) I want to play the game as best as I can, and it sucks having to kill your allies.
Especially considering the amount of hours I put into doing their quests.

Now with the Nuka DLC - from what you describe, I think you played it out the best possible way - leading the raiders on a bit, getting familiar with them, then taking them out from the inside.

Greatly looking forward to tomorrow to play this!

I'm killing all the raiders right now.

I'll sort through what's left afterwards.

Okay, warning about killing off all the raiders:

I was wondering if the slaves would no longer have their bomb collars on anymore. The day after freeing them by killing off the raiders, sure enough, the no longer have their bomb collars on......

....or any clothes for that mater! Hahahahaha!

They are all running around in their underwear. It's day 5 and still in their briefs.

I've tried bartering with them and selling them clothes I've found...but nope!

Guess they REALLY wanted to be "free"!

Think I'll send a feed back on it to Bethesda.

Fallout 4 is one of my favorite games of the last couple years so this is definitely on my list to download this weekend. I haven't got any of the DLC for F4 yet. I made the mistake of letting my 14 yr old borrow it and he's just as immersed in that world as I get so my chances of gettin it back in the mear future are slim so I might just go pick up a used copy to have for myself. I'll probably be MIA for a few weeks after Inget it back up and running again. Can't wait to spend the next month with my head buried in the DLC. Thanks for the well I nformed post on this. Though I doubt my wife will be too thrilled haha

I must warn many places in the part, you will hear the Nuka World theme music being played over and over. There are some variants of it, such as just instruments play.


It's insidious....because ti will become a new ear worm forever stuck in your it is:
