Extraterrestrials Land Today in Latest Fallout 76 Patch
The latest Fallout 76 update is now available and free to all players. In the seasonal event, mysterious beings from the outer reaches of space invade the skies of Appalachia. Work together with other players to prevent the aliens from completing their “research.” Fallout Worlds also receives some improvements, including earning S.C.O.R.E., and the all-new Season 8 is out.
Every hour on the hour, an Alien Mothership will appear above one of several high-profile Appalachian locations to deploy three Brainwave Siphons in the area, which then gather brainwaves from nearby lifeforms in the Brainwave Extraction process. To trigger the event, travel to the Mothership’s location and examine Siphon Kappa.
When the event begins, players must destroy all three Brainwave Siphons before the aliens can complete the extractions. Each Siphon is protected by a force field, which is controlled by a different Alien Commander. Defeat alien forces to draw out the Commander for each Siphon. By beating the Commander, the force field will drop and will present the opportunity to destroy the Siphon. Demolishing all three Brainwave Siphons in time provides some loot, XP, and a chance to earn plans to craft new alien weaponry and C.A.M.P. objects.
