    When you completed Episode 31 you can build a Nuclear Weapon for 750.000 GMP, 75.000 Fuel and 50.000 Metal. It about (real) 26 hours to complete (depending on your Base Development Unit Level). You also lose 50.000 Heroism Points (you need 150.000 for the Hero Achievement).
    I highly recommend you no use waste that kind of Fuel, if you haven't upgraded your Motherbase fully yet.

    If you have a Nuke, your FOB can't be attacked by Players who don't have the Hero Status/Achievement. The Nuke can be build from the Menu cn_start -> Motherbase -> Resources -> cn_LB

    ---- After Patch 1.04 -----
    You can't use Offline Ressources anymore to build the Nuke, now you need processed Online Materials. They can be farmed by playing Dispatch and FOB Missions. If you switch to Offline Mode you can still build them with offlineMaterials

    Posted by LAZY SHIKAMARUX : I found out a good way to pass the time while it's being built. If you go to your power settings and turn off your consoles ability to turn off after inactivity, you can snap an app while playing the game. While the app is snapped if you have your controls focused on the snapped app, you can turn off your controller and the game will still run without prompting you to plug in a controller.

    Calex dEUSI just got this and the one for disarming it, made the nuke online as I didn't have resources to do it offline. this takes 1 day and 3 hours real world time now not in game time.

    AG Bucky Barnes@Crater - Hero points are different to demon points. Demon points are a hidden value; they can only be countered by doing specific "good deeds" and from what I read, you gain a lot from building a nuke to the point it's guaranteed to make the horn bigger and may even adopt the blood soaked visual. Though like you say, not bothered by it then all good =)

    Crater BobHaven't gotten the bloodsoak, so I'm good. But I wouldn't mind making the horn significantly smaller, it makes wearing the parasite suit a real pain right now.

    For anyone who started this years ago and had a half decent base when you left if you return now (i did after 4 years of not logging in) you go to Motherbase -> PF Grade -> Any League -> Press RT. You can redeen PF Points for all kind of rewards i came back and saw way over 4million points on it and i can buy like 50 nukes with the amount of points i have, about 1k of the points will get you roughly 5k mats so no need for grinding if you have played this game start to finish atleast a year ago you should have quite a bit of points already
