The weird wasteland of Fallout 76 is coming to wide release soon, and I asked you all to provide me with some interesting things that the characters of that game might see during their exploration. You did not disappoint.

The unknown is a scary thing, and while Fallout 76 seems to be delivering what we might expect from the franchise, there’s always the chance for a swerve or something unpredictable. I love the moments in Bethesda games when I walk around a corner and see something special.

Our winner this week is Hands of Orlok, who took a moment of “oh wow” from Dark Souls and neatly placed it into the same context for our hapless Wanderers of the Wasteland. The dastardly duo waiting there are probably a bit easier if you have a laser rifle.

But there are also lots of honorable mentions this week. I encourage you to read through all of the comments on the original post to see some excellent entries that didn’t make it in the mentions.
