Fallout 76 review

Poor old Fallout 76. In the weeks since its release, reviewers have piled on it like a pack of football hooligans who’ve just seen the opposing side’s mascot waddle desperately past their pub. By the time I picked it up, it felt unsporting - cruel, even - to run in and deliver a sharp kick to a man already dying inside a foam owl costume.…

Fallout 76 players are cross at Bethesda for taking away their stew

Borimaus was on his last legs. The Appalachian wilds had always been harsh, and a recent patch had stripped back how quickly he could gain XP. Starvation loomed. He grimaced, fixing the scarred landscape with one last look as his fingers fumbled towards the disconnect button. Then: a can of stew descended from the heavens, an altruistic spark in the irradiated darkness. Someone else had…

Fallout 76 CAMP: buildings you should make, taking over workshops,

Appalachia is still a lovely place to pitch up a tent, but after the bombs fell in Fallout 76, it's not at its best. Still, you have to make do and rebuild where possible. Your handy tool for all your building needs is the "C.A.M.P." or the "Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform" (henceforth abbreviated to CAMP). This allows you to make your base of operations,…

Bethesda’s support site leaked people’s real names and addresses

In a security breach last night (now resolved), Bethesda's support site revealed the personal information of customers who'd submitted support tickets. The details - which included people's names, addresses and phone numbers - mostly belonged to Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition buyers, who were after a replacement canvas bag for the nylon one that was actually included. What a mess.

Fallout 76 weapons: best weapons, how to craft weapons

Fallout 76 has more stuff trying to kill you than ever before, with other humans being other players that are more likely to shoot first. Therefore, you'll need good weapons to defend yourself: Melee weapons, ranged weapons, maybe an explosive or two. Perhaps the only way to get an enemy off your back is to make them eat a Fat Man nuke. While the weapons…

Fallout 76 crafting: best armour, how outfits work

It's a tough world out there, with irradiated creatures and other players trying to kill you at every turn. Luckily there's also plenty of stuff lying around that is yours for the taking should you want it. But for when there's nothing but scrap, it's worth investing some of it into making armour. Equipment is slightly different in Fallout 76 as armour pieces are worn…

Fallout 76 nukes: getting nuclear bomb codes, how to get rare resources

Not that you'll be able to do this immediately, but there are times in Fallout 76 where someone does something that a mere bullet to the face just won't satisfy your bloodlust. This may be a player  repeatedly killing you and your friends, stealing your magazine that you spent hours hunting for, or just wrecking your workshop that you recently fortified. Tempers therefore may be frayed…

Fallout 76 multiplayer: teaming up with friends, how PVP works

Fallout 76's unique selling point is that this is a multiplayer Fallout game, though really it's more than that. You have plenty of stuff that you can do on your own, but there are a few tasks that may be a ton easier with up other people. It could be a case of jolly cooperation or a fight to the death. This guide will show…

Fallout 76 patched today, canvas bags to follow

Bethesda are correcting more of Fallout 76's slop, both in the game and the whole situation around it. Today brings a patch expanding the stash storage limit and fixing several crashes, among other things. And after silently swapping advertised canvas bags in the £175 'Power Armor Edition' for nylon ones, then offering a dribble of microtransaction currency in apology, Bethesda have relented and are having…

Fallout 76 Bobbleheads: locations, are they permanent

In a move that irked some people, Bobbleheads don't work the same as they once did in Fallout 76, being temporary buffs as opposed to permanent upgrades.  They still increase your S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stats, or affect weapons used. Since they're more plentiful, there's a huge number of places where you can find them just lying around, so this guide will have more on their locations, exactly…

Fallout 76 Magazines: locations, what the magazines do

Ever since people ventured into Appalachia, it soon became apparent that Magazines work a fair bit differently in Fallout 76. Instead of being permanent upgrade, Magazines are now consumable temporary buffs that provide traits such as weapon specific boost or damage increased against certain enemies. Since they work slightly differently this time, there are more places that you can find them, this guide will have…

Fallout 76 guide: tips and tricks, how to survive in Appalachia

Fallout 76 has been out for a while now and even though there are now players who have explored the entirety of Appalachia, there's no better time to emerge from Vault 76 and make your mark in the world. This is not the typical Fallout game though, as this one is online, with a ton of other changes on top of that; from how Perks…

Fallout 76 Perk Cards: all the perk cards, how to upgrade them

One of the more drastic changes in Fallout 76 is in it's revamp of how Perks work. Instead of choosing one permanent skill at every level, you get cards that can be equipped at any time, upgraded to increase their effectiveness, and even shared with your buddies at any point provided you have the Charisma. There are a ton of these in the game, some…

Fallout 76 gives £4 in virtuacash to apologise for Power Armor Edition’s trash bag

Bethesda are giving a couple bucks in microtransaction currency to Fallout 76 players who bought the £175 'Power Armor Edition' expecting its numerous feelies to include a "canvas West Tek duffel bag", only to find it had been replaced with a trashy nylon bag. Video game Collector's Editions capitalise on fan enthusiasm to sell overpriced trinkets and tat, but even the credulous should get the…

Fallout 76 enemies: all the monsters you fight in Appalachia

Appalachia is full of stories and legends, mostly ones involving monsters that lurk in the trees: The Grafton monster, Mothman, and the Snallygaster. Fallout 76 includes these alongside the standard fare of Super Mutants and Deathclaws to make for a rather terrifying roster of monsters. Don't even get me started on why the Scorchbeast may be the most difficult enemy to take down. In this…

Big fixes and quality-of-life features on the way for Fallout 76 on PC

It feels like understatement of the week to say that pseudo-MMO spinoff Fallout 76 had a rocky start. All through beta to launch, the game has been plagued by bugs, and Bethesda still putting out the worst of the fires. In a Reddit post today, the studio outlined their road-map for the next two weeks, including some major issues to be hammered out. They're also working…

Feature: Reviewing Cyberpunk 1-2076 is going to take a while

Fallouts 5-75 review

In the build-up to the release of Fallout 76, we felt it was important to put the game in its proper context. With that in mind, we commissioned games historian Nate Crowley - aka @FrogCroakley - to write capsure reviews of Fallouts 5 through 75. We've been posting those reviews five-a-day on Twitter ever since, until the work was completed last night. You can still…

Fallout 76 Power Armour locations: all the Power Armor locations

Power Armor in Fallout is normally reserved for the Brotherhood of Steel, but its existence predates the bombs. That said, being their uniform of sorts, the Power Armor is seen either as a sign of hope or despair, depending on which side of America they're in. In Fallout 76, the Power Armor is still where it was when the atom bomb dropped, stored away and…
