Fallout 76 gamers host the Iron Chef Cooking Problem in-game


Fallout 76 fans hosted a fun in-game cooking event where participants battled to collect ingredients and prepare meals.

Role play in Fallout 76 reached a new impressive milestone when players organized an Iron Chef Cooking Challenge in the online survival game. That’s an amazing way to enjoy the game beyond official content support, which, to be honest, has been pretty impressive lately.

The latest Fallout 76 DLC, the Locked & Loaded update, introduced some valued quality of life improvements and gameplay features. The CAMP system is expected to have been updated so players can have two such bases at the same time instead of just one. In addition, the update offered the possibility to create interchangeable SPECIAL loading processes for the characters of the players in advance, so that they could prepare different presets for specific requirements.

Fallout 76 fans alone hosted an weird in-game event that hosted a cooking challenge reminiscent of the popular TV show Iron Chef. The in-game version called Clawed Cooking Challenge was organized and streamed by the El Gato Pub (as discovered by Polygon) on Twitch. The event included a full list of numerous recipes and scores that attendees would receive for successfully cooking selected meals. But first, players had to venture into dangerous wastelands to collect all the necessary ingredients, especially the rarest ones, that would have resulted in higher scores. All of the competitors were also given a secret ingredient to spice things up and make the whole thing a lot more intriguing. When time has time to evaluate the meals and their presentation, the judges posted a swarm of sarcastic and derisive comments to poke fun at post-apocalyptic would-be chefs.

Similar challenges are set to come in the future, so that Fallout 76 players have plenty of time to prepare for another round of roasting Deathclaw meat and being roasted by judges. Meanwhile, Bethesda is sticking to its own plan to keep the community entertained by developing and releasing new content add-ons for the game. This year alone, Fallout 76 is slated to receive three more important DLCs. You’ll feature tons of goodies including brand new places to explore, NPCs to interact with, quests to get started, and rewards to collect.

It should come as no surprise that players are finally enjoying Fallout 76 to the fullest, as the game has effectively gotten rid of its initial bad name with the help of continued support from Bethesda. The latest player-organized Cooking Challenge is the best indicator that the robust mechanics and extensive features of the survival title make it possible to host suitable entertaining events. Such community-run initiatives also suggest that the game is a natural source of fun for the players that is sufficient to redeem Fallout 76is notoriously broken start.
