Fallout 4 has several factions that players can control, each having their own particular views on society and their own plans for the future of the commonwealth and humanity as a whole. Each of these factions provides a new base or two, as well as some unique companions for you to recruit. But that’s not all. Each of these factions can provide you with an extra ability that will help players when duking it out with the evils of the wasteland.
One of these abilities is the Artillery Strike. Chuck a smoke grenade that targets a location, and stand back as you watch bombs fall from the sky and decimate absolutely everything. Of course, you’ll have to unlock this first and that will require you to get in good with the Minutemen.
Fortunately enough, you’ll have the opportunity to join the Minutemen almost immediately after exiting the vault. After you’ve joined, you will be given a series of quests, some which involve liberating settlements. Once you liberate the Castle from the Mirelurks, you’ll eventually earn a quest titled Old Guns.
A former Minuteman will rejoin the ranks and inform you of a hidden artillery stockpile located under the Castle. Clear it out and set up artillery to test fire it. Once that’s done you’ll unlock artillery strikes in Fallout 4.
They do have a range and can only be fired from settlements where you’ve built an artillery station. So, the more locations you have established, the more places you can call in an artillery strike. So get out there and liberate the world.
