    While playing the game, you may get a notification for a quest called "Death From Above". When this happens, you'll have only a few minutes to arrive at a location indicated by a large red circle. In almost every case, this circle appeared for me in the southeast region known as the Cranberry Bog.

    When you get close to this circle, you will see a radiation symbol on your compass, which is probably a location somewhere in the middle of the circle's area. Run quickly towards the radiation symbol and hope that you die in the blast. I got this achievement by simply rushing towards that symbol and instantly dying when the bomb dropped, with mere seconds to spare.

    In my experience, the red circle appeared in a few different locations in the Cranberry Bog (and once near Whitespring, northwest of Cranberry Bog), leading to some frustration as I never had a fast-travel location close enough to the blast. Eventually, I had several locations discovered in the Cranberry Bog region and was able to fast-travel to one of them and run to the blast radius. Even so, it was a close call. Your results may vary, but I'd recommend unlocking as many fast-travel points in Cranberry Bog as you can and then wait for the quest notification to pop up.

    When someone launches a Nuke you have 2:30 to get into the blast radius. Thankfully somone dropped one on top of Vault-Tec University in the server I was in, so it was a quick fast travel to ground zero. Make sure to have a haz mat suit or other protection to go in and start looting high end enemies.

    Hexa FoxYeah this solution is garbage. You would think you only need to be inside the blast radius, but the nuke has to land almost on top of you to get this.

    Leo AscendentPretty easy, not sure what people are having issues with. I joined a game with 2 minutes until the nuke would hit, plenty of time to fast travel to a place just outside the blast radius, followed the little nuke icon on my compass and waited. Got it a few seconds after I died.
