The N.U.K.E. is a weapon featured in Thing-Thing 4.
The N.U.K.E. is a futuristic, nuclear-powered weapon developed by Systems Corp. that could unleash a devastating atomic blast that can wipe out multiple enemies at a time.
Firing it will result in a blinding flash of light that covers the screen (you can also see the Diseased Productions bio-hazard logo as it does, like when taking damage), and when it fades, every enemy on screen will have been burned to ashes.
The weapon takes a few seconds to cool down (or re-charge, depending on your perspective) after each shot. The N.U.K.E. will not destroy everything if it doesn't "hit" anything. Just aim for a wall or the floor or ceiling to get the desired results.
It is unlocked by achieving 100% completion (getting every achievement in the game), and is found in the secret locked room at the top-left area of The Armory.
- Its animation model was designed after the PHaSR (Personnel Halting and Stimulation Rifle), a prototype non-lethal laser dazzler developed by the United States Department of Defense.
- The N.U.K.E. may even be the most powerful weapon in the entire series!
