Directed by Nigel J. Kim, Fallout Deadweight plunges viewers into a 12-minute spectacle set within the world of Fallout 4. The film centers around the iconic character Nate, delivering a narrative that provides closure to Fallout 4‘s storyline, particularly its family aspect.

From the opening sequence featuring Nate wielding a laser pistol against a Molerat to the intense action scenes involving Raiders and a VATS encounter, Deadweight exudes authenticity. The film is a testament to the passion of its creators, with well-crafted replica weapons and set pieces that capture the feeling of the Fallout series.

With solid voice acting and an authentic soundtrack, Deadweight puts viewers in a world teeming with Vault Boy iconography and nods to Fallout lore. JP Valenti’s portrayal of Nate deserves special mention for bringing depth to the character.

As fans eagerly await the premiere of the Fallout TV show, Deadweight offers an intriguing taste of what’s to come.
