Many civilizations in the BrikWars universe possess the technology to create weapons that can blow up entire cities, battlefields, or even planets. This is known as the Nuklear Option. It is very rarely used, however, for two reasons. Firstly, blowing up the enemy army instead of fighting it is considered boring, cowardly, and generally anorakish. Secondly, a nuke rarely kills everyone caught in the explosion, instead turning them into mutants or badass post-apocalypse warriors. Nukes see some use, however, in the creation of cool nuklear wasteland battlefields.
