An avid Fallout 4 fan creates another massive battle between two warring factions of the game, this time pitting 20,000 Demon Deathclaw against the Brotherhood of Steel.
While some gamers find Fallout 4‘s expansive world and large collection of mods to be enough to keep them busy, others create things that were never intended to be in the game. YouTuber Cosmic Contrarian is at it again, creating another massive war between two factions.
In Cosmic Contrarian’s latest Fallout 4 battle, he’s staged a war between 20,000 Demon Deathclaw and a faction of the Brotherhood of Steel at their castle wall. While the exact number of Brotherhood soldiers is unknown, there seem to be at least a couple hundred in full power armor defending their base. Though Deathclaws and the Brotherhood of Steel have gone up against each other in fights before, this time a good portion of the army is nested behind the castle walls, giving them a significant advantage against the oncoming Deathclaw horde. After all, while Deathclaws are one of the most dangerous enemies in Fallout 4, they’re primarily only a threat once they’re up close to their prey.
Cosmic Contrarian’s computer appears to strain slightly under the demands of the fight, especially when the Brotherhood starts to use their laser artillery to combat them. Once the 20,000 Deathclaw are close enough to draw the Brotherhood’s fire, so much laser fire appears on-screen that the battle looks more like a rave than a fight. The battle rages on for over ten minutes, with the Brotherhood desperately attempting to hold back the Deathclaw horde.
This is the latest in the long feud of YouTube battles between Deathclaws and the Brotherhood of Steel. Each time has seen an increase in the size of each army, with 100 Brotherhood of Steel initially trying to combat 1,000 Deathclaw, followed by a fight between 300 Brotherhood of Steel and 30,000 Deathclaw. While the numbers may seem a bit unfair, the advanced weaponry of the Brotherhood has previously helped them to turn the tide of the advancing Deathclaw, though it usually doesn’t prevent a massive or entire loss of their numbers.
While Fallout 4 players on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are still waiting for the ability to use mods, PC gamers have been using mods and the game’s console to create insane scenes like these. It’s even possible that these YouTube videos may have partially inspired Bethesda’s planned Fallout 4 DLC, as they’ve recently announced the release of a DLC pack that will allow players to capture and tame enemy creatures to fight for the sole survivor.
Fallout 4 is a massive game all on its own that can potentially keep gamers busy for weeks on end, if not months. Fan creations like these show the never-ending dedication of Fallout 4 fans, and the creativity that comes from being able to tinker with a massive sandbox world. With Fallout 4 DLC on the way and the ability to use mods on the console versions of the game coming soon, chances are gamers will continue to produce mind-boggling creations like these in the post-apocalyptic world of Fallout 4 for years to come.
Fallout 4 is now available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
