Blast from the past with Minutemen Watchtowers in Fallout 4

Add some much needed lore to Fallout 4


One of the hottest mods on Nexus Mods right now adds some much needed lore to the Commonwealth. The ‘Minutemen Watchtowers‘ by Spiffyskytrooper adds multiple Watchtowers to your Fallout 4 world. Left abandoned and decaying after the demise of the Minutemen, search these towers for long lost loot left behind by our fallen heroes.

Overall, you can find 9 of these large towers added to the world. They are extremely friendly to survival players, offering ways for the player to sleep and wait whilst there.

Personally, mods like this are my favourite. Sometimes the world can feel a little empty in places, so stumbling across these new locations really make the game feel fresh again. Especially if you’re someone who has multiple play-throughs.

Also, the lore really helps build the game for players. Being able to visit Minuteman locations from so many years ago is great, and provides an incentive for players to explore newer areas. The developer of this mod has chosen to place them in realistic locations, and encourages you to message them if you have any suggestions for additional locations.
