Fallout 76 Megathread

megathread
76

#121

Pre-ordered yesterday after some serious back-and-forth internally. I didn’t get the chance to try the beta, so this is rather blind, but hoping to have some fun screwing around in the wasteland with ya’ll.


#122

BETA progress carries over.
I’m sure some of the guys will be waiting at the vault entrance for you, to “help”.


#123

I’m going to start new char, drops tomorrow I believe. Pvp was not really that great among strangers. Has some playability with friends; not interesting in building at all, exploration w group will be majority of time spent.


#124

I think I’ll start a new toon as well. I know my wife wants to start one for herself also.

Top tip.
Use the category filter and zoom in.


#130

PC Version is 39.99 on GMG (digital code), and you can also apply a 12% off voucher for Black Friday to get it to just over 35.00. @PCGamers


#131

Or if you need a Blue Yeti you can get the game free. Who doesn’t want a free game with a semi good microphone?


#132

I skimmed past the headline and read the post. Thought you were talking about a yeti cup. Cause I’d buy it then


#133

@Fallout76Players; I will be blasting out main missions tonight EST on xbox.


#134

For those wondering this is the quest i was talking about in chat the other day. Miner Miracles. I am going after this not really for the power armor but one of the rewards is the plan for the Power Armor craft bench.

Side note: this is part of a larger guide on side quests in Fallout 76.


#135

Oh nice. I have been wanting the PA craft thing.


#136

Update plan from Bethesda posted on Reddit:

Liked these updates scheduled for the 12/11 update:

  • C.A.M.P. Placement on Login: Your C.A.M.P. will no longer be automatically blueprinted and stored if someone is occupying your location when you log into a server. Instead, you’ll receive a notification that your space is occupied. If you decide to find a new home for your C.A.M.P. on that server, it will be free to do so. However, if you don’t attempt to place down your C.A.M.P., you will be able to switch to a new server where that spot is vacant and your C.A.M.P. will be fully assembled and waiting for you.
  • Bulldozer: This is a new C.A.M.P. feature that will allow you to remove small trees, rocks, and other obstructions so it’s easier to create and place your C.A.M.P. when and where you want it. You can also use the Bulldozer to clear these items from the surrounding area to make your C.A.M.P. feel more like home!

#137

TL;DR he did not like it.


#138

No money in liking it. Gotta get them views.


#139

Never watched one of his videos.
Presume he’s always angry.


#140

He is fairly predictable. I feel like it’s manufactured anger that tends to go along the lines of what the masses are complaining about. Not saying he doesn’t care and isn’t angry. He may very well be.

That being said I do subscribe to him and watch some of his videos. Seems like a decent dude and seems to care about the industry. He just isn’t going to get views if he is Happy Joe and likes everything.

He is a comedic Jim Sterling.
