The final expansion of Fallout 4, Nuka World, is here- and much like Far Harbor before it, Nuka World represents a more substantial bit of post launch content for the game than what we have received so far, expanding the story, and adding new areas to the game map. It is, in other words, one of those essential bits of Fallout 4 DLC that you simply must get if you have enjoyed the base game to any degree whatsoever.
If you do get it, however, you will find a massive experience waiting for you- with a lot to do, a lot to see, a lot to fight, a lot to collect. It can all get a bit… overwhelming. That’s where we come in. This Fallout 4 guide will take you through everything that there is to do in the expansion, from locations of collectibles such as Star Cores, Scav! Magazines, a look at new perks, hidden cappu cue and nuka recipes locations, unlimited tickets cheat, unique and rare weapons, armor and apparel locations and getting the nuka cade ticket quickly. Finally we take a look at how you can unlock some of the trophies and achievements in the game.
How To Access Nuka World DLC And Expansion:
Of course, before you do anything else, you need to know how to even access the Nuka World DLC. This works similarly to just about every other bit of major content in Fallout 4. Do note, however, that before you can access Nuka World, you need to have hit at least Level 15. It also goes without saying that you need to have exited Vault 111 too.
- Go to the Data tab on your Pip-boy and select the quest All Aboard. Listen to the Nuka Cola Family radio channel for a few minutes.
- The quest should update, tasking you with locating the Nuka-World Transit Center. This is south of Sanctuary, near the edge of the map. Head there.
- There are soldiers standing outside- you can choose to either engage them in combat, or sneak around them to enter the transit center.
- Once inside, talk to the man named Harvey. You need to get him to tell you a certain sad story (the nature of which is withheld to avoid spoilers). After this conversation, he will take you to Nuka World.
Star Collectibles Locations Guide:
The biggest collectible quest in Fallout 4: Nuka World is the one which tasks you with finding all the Star Cores- there are 35 of these hidden throughout the DLC, and collecting all of them can get you a shiny new power armor (though collecting just 20 is enough for the purposes of the quest, too).
The video below walks you through finding all 35 Star Cores in the game- do note, however, that some of these may not be accessible in game to you until you have progressed further in the story.
Scav! Magazines Collectible Locations:
Yep, you’re still collecting magazines in Fallout 4: Nuka World. There are actually not a lot of them to find, but for the more OCD ones among your number, it’ll probably be satisfying to hunt every last one of them down regardless. The video below will show you just where and how:
While we can argue about the ultimate result of Bethesda choosing to go with an exclusively perks based leveling system for Fallout 4, that’s neither here nor there- for now, we are stuck with the perks system as it is. Nuka World actually adds a fair few NEW perks to the game- are these worth it? Which ones of these should you go for? The video below should answer all of your questions.
Hidden Cappy Cue Locations Guide
One of the best fetch quests in the expansion, and certainly the one with the most character, is the one which has you hunt down the Cappy Cues. The video below shows you exactly where to find them al in Nuka World:
