New seasonal event: Meat Week

Grahm is hosting a barbeque for all his human friends during the Meat Week Seasonal Event, and you're invited! However, he's going to need a whole lot of meat and a few helping hands to make sure everyone has a great time and can eat their fill.

Meat Week starts today at 12:00 p.m. EDT, lasts until 12:00 p.m. EDT on August 8, and is made up of two separate but related events: Primal Cuts and Grahm's Meat-Cook.

Primal Cuts event

  • Prime Beasts are on the prowl, and cuts of meat from these creatures make for some of the finest barbeque fare a friendly Super Mutant could ask for.
    • You'll receive some Prime Meat every time you complete a Primal Cuts Event. Bring it to Grahm's Meat-Cook Event and add it to the grill for a special reward.
  • Three Primal Cuts Event locations will appear on the Map simultaneously about every 15 minutes.
    • Difficulty is tuned differently at each location so that adventurers of all levels can join the hunt for Prime Beasts.

Grahm's Meat-Cook event

  • Grahm's got his hands full manning the grill all week long at his Meat-Cook Event, which begins every hour in the Forest region.
    • Join other Meat-Cook attendees to complete various activities that will ensure everyone has a blast, like playing musical instruments, roasting meat, and putting out fires, among others.
    • If the Meat-Cook is a success, you'll receive some barbeque-themed rewards. The better the party, the higher your chances at better loot.
  • Remember to place any Prime Meat you've collected on the grill, and Grahm will give you a few Legendary Scrips as a “thank you” for your efforts.

Primal Cuts and Grahm's Meat-Cook can be repeated as often as they're available on the Map. Revisit them regularly to maximize your rewards during Meat Week.


  • Radio: The cover of “Ring of Fire” from the Nuclear Winter trailer has been added to the Appalachia Radio playlist.
