'Fallout 76' Players Unleash Terrifying Scorchbeast Queen Following Nuke Launch

Nukes and scorchbeasts -- two things that Fallout 76 offers, but should never offer at the same time. Unfortunately, that's exactly what happened to a few players that decided to unleash a nuke onto the map directly aimed at a fissure site. These are usually areas one would find these ferocious winged beasts at, but little did they know that they'd find the mother of them all.

For those that may just be getting started in the game, these creatures are level 50 and are not a casual fight. They're vicious, deadly, and quite mobile in the air. From the usual melee fighting techniques expected of foes, to sonic blasts and huge wafts of radiatio, there's a lot of reasons you can die going up against one of these beasts. Now picture going after the queen.

These fissures can be seen on the map, so you attack a hive with a nuke, get a level 95 scorchbeast queen. Basically, it's terrifying, but the higher the risk, the higher the rewards, and the drop was epic. Not only did these players get some general loot, but they were also awarded an incredibly rare form of crafting material: Ultracite.
