    I think people who think these would be good for briefing are underestimating the usage of a "choose your high level loot" area. Why waste a good nuke on someone else’s base, for them to get the gear?

    Also, it’s kind of silly to have brand new survivors of a nuclear war nuking each other back to the Stone Age. You’d think they would’ve learned a lesson. Guess that’s what you get when you go for fun over story.

    A combination of comedy and deadly scenes, wow! The trailer/gameplay was indeed very fun to watch.

    I guess they’re taking the idea that the human race never learns from past mistakes and leftover nukes seem too tempting to pass up.
    I think they did a good job introducing it, but watch out for your neighbours.

    If they introduce great loot for super epic boss monsters , there will be many people willing to use these nukes in ‘properly’ .. If they encourage PVP , then we know where these will go

    It will depend on how easy it will be to obtain these launch codes as you will need a complete set of codes to use nukes. Not having a full set might make it bit more difficult to do so.
