A Patch to Fallout 76 Promises Performance and Improvements
The Dec. 4 patch will address bug fixes to the game as well as a few balancing changes, in an apparent attempt to address some of the player dissatisfaction surrounding the multiplayer game. That Bethesda will fix an exploit in which players can exceed their carry weight, meaning the limit to how much inventory a player can carry, was an expressed hope in a Reddit thread with comments from players regarding the patch. Some users speculated that this exploit could be causing stability issues.
In many ways, at least for those of us who comment on the video game industry’s many foibles, Fallout 76 is the gift that keeps on giving. Not so much, however, if you spent $200 on the game’s Power Armor Edition, thought you’d get a nice canvas bag, and were sent a cheap nylon bag instead. This on top of the game being a hot pile of steaming garbage, riddled with performance issues, bland combat and recycled assets.
Of all the things Fallout 76 has got wrong, a switcheroo on a collector’s edition bag has proved to be one of the most contentious. In an attempt to make that right, Bethesda is now going to send folks a proper canvas bag presumably like the ones originally advertised as a replacement for the plastic junk.

For console players, Bethesda fixed an issue in which players could encounter an unending loading screen after signing out of their account while playing the game. For Xbox One users, a crash caused by sending multiple team invites to non-friend players after leaving Vault 76 was fixed. The consoles’ updates are roughly 3GB. If you haven’t been following the Fallout 76 news, there was a rather large uproar about the duffel bag that shipped with the $200 Power Armor Edition.
The bag was advertised as canvas, but it was replaced with a cheap-looking nylon version with no warning from Bethesda beforehand. Naturally, Fallout 76’s biggest spenders were unhappy about this bag-switching, and Bethesda’s solution of giving a measly 500 Atoms as compensation for that substandard bag just made things worse.
Bethesda Softworks is planning to ship out replacement canvas bags to owners of the Fallout 76: Power Armor Edition. The publisher announced on Twitter that it will send out the bag to anyone who submits a complaint ticket on its website by January 31. Lockpicking, a staple activity in the Fallout franchise, is a little different in Fallout 76. The minigame is somewhat tougher, Bobby Pins are scarcer and the skill necessary to pull it off is part of Fallout 76’s new, different Perk system. This guide will explain how to pick a lock, how the Picklock and other Perk Cards work, and where to find Bobby Pins.
