Nuclear Weapons In Video Games

Unleashing one of the most devastating effects over a large area of land Nuclear weapons have always been a thing of both wonder and terror Their immense power fascinated gamers so much that they immediately wanted to get their hands on games that would allow them to use these weapons to blow their enemies sky high and since the appetite for destruction is so great we’re going to be listing our ten most horrifying games that let you nuke the world in some of the most spectacular ways imaginable In Twisted Metal 4, the playable character Calypso was dethroned by his rival, Needles Kane. And thus he became a contestant in the insane races the game features Once taking control of him, the players are able to drive his iconic Soviet missile launcher truck that is painfully destructive, and, of course, EXTREMELY deadly to the other players.

The special ability of this vehicle is to launch a nuclear missile that has to be detonated near the opponents to reach its maximum potential. Nuclear power is a technology that allows the players to build a nuclear plant and ultimately wage war on their enemies with the help of nuclear weapons. For example, in Civilization 5, the nuclear warhead is an innovative weapon that can be developed in the information era. It is delivered through a guided missile, and it must be stationed in any of the cities you own or aboard a nuclear submarine. Having a range of 12, a nuclear missile will severely damage the opponents’ towns and destroy all units within a blast radius of two tiles. The nuclear missile, or, in short, the nuke, is the Terran weapon of mass destruction that can be fired from a starship, a vehicle, or a structure. In the modern version, the nukes are laser-guided and deployed by the ghost unit. These missiles can be built in the nuclear silo, or at the ghost academy in StarCraft II, these structures only being capable of holding just one warhead at a time.

The total damage made by two of these highly destructive weapons is enough to destroy almost everything in their path. In Supreme Commander, the player is able to use the strategic missile launchers to target any part of the map, and unleash mayhem on their opponents. Even though the explosion of such a strategic missile is extremely invasive and powerful it doesn’t necessarily decimate every unit that is situated in the affected area. After a player succeeds in deploying a nuclear missile, the other players will hear the warning: “strategic launch detected.” A series of nuclear weapons detonated through a variety of methods are used to cause a great deal of damage to targeted planets. These means of waging war on enemies are collectively known under the name of Exterminatus and they usually result in the massive execution of the population that inhabits the planet they are sent to. In order to create an effective destructive firestorm these nuclear weapons must be properly arranged in orbit. As with other titles on this list, the nuclear missile is the weapon of choice in Red Alert 2 as well.
