Like many, I’ve been enjoying the last Fallout 4 DLC, Nuka-World. Like all of Fallout it’s… a bit… glitchy as all hell. One of the more annoying, but common, glitches is the disappearance of one of the 15 Nuka-Mix recipe books, “Nuka Xtreme“.
The book is supposed be on the table, near the flagpole in Dry Rock Gulch, accessible from the theater grandstands. The book, apparently often, falls through the scenery and ends up in the normally inaccessible space between the walls. Working from a solution on the GameFAQS.com forums from user “Dooter”, this is one possible method for recovering it on PlayStation 4 (likely on other platforms as well).
Using a power armor glitch you can enter this space and, sometimes, grab the recipe! Some people have reported that they can’t grab it, as I did, but must use explosions (explosive rounds or grenades) to blast the book out into the “real world”. Others have reported that the book never appears in this way, but is found later having been flung into another part of the area.
To perform the armor glitch: stand perpendicular to the wall you’d like to invade. Press and hold “X” to exit the armor, but a split second later (the timing is touchy) turn your view (right analog stick) away from the wall. If done well, you’ll exit your armor inside the wall where you can search for the treasure. To leave, fast travel to any other location.
I hope this helps to reduce some of the frustration that I felt with this! You may also like my extended Diary of Fallout 4.
