A gamer has shown off a hilarious Fallout 4 mod that turns bananas into deadly weapons. Players won’t have a hard time finding a unique weapon in Fallout 4, but this particular weapon is far stranger than what players encounter in the base game.
Like most Bethesda games, Fallout 4’s mod scene ranks among the best in the gaming community. While the base game gives players incredible freedom to play however they want, the modding community adds another layer to this, meaning players can also turn the game itself into anything they want . Some opt for more stealthy mods that affect gameplay in small ways, while others turn the game into a full-fledged military shooter. It’s this versatility that continues to drive players to modding Fallout 4 rather than opting for newer games.
A clip posted by Redditor SmoothAsMarble shows players picking up bananas in the middle of Diamond City. After consuming it, they get the “Banana Peel Mine”. Then they show off the mine and throw it under an NPC, who flies under the banana peel. It even adds hilarious noises for comic effect as it slips. Many Fallout 4 mods take themselves very seriously to match the overall tone of the game. It’s nice to see a mod that does the opposite for once and allows players to play the game in a more relaxed manner.
Players in the thread found the mod hilarious and took the opportunity to discuss other games that use banana weapons. It’s not a particularly long list, with Metal Gear Solid 3 and Hitman 3 being the highlights. Over the years, there have been many hilarious moments in Fallout 4, where players took full advantage of Bethesda’s sandbox. An interesting Fallout 4 clip shows a legendary cockroach being dropped by a player, which is definitely not what the settlement building function is for. With gamers still enjoying Fallout 4, there’s sure to be more to come.
When Bethesda finally releases Fallout 5, the hope is that the developers will continue to support the modding community by providing incredible tools at their disposal. There’s nothing to suggest that Bethesda intends to stand in the way of modders. Upcoming game Starfield has confirmed support for modding, and the company recognizes the value of the community in extending the lifespan of its games. Today, Skyrim and Fallout 4 remain among the most popular games, despite being 11 and 7 years old respectively.
Fallout 4 is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
