I met the Fallout 76 Fun Cop

People in Fallout 76 are decent enough, in my experience. I forget whether I've related my first encounter with another player, where I accidentally blundered into their camp, then backed away in the panicky assumption that they'd attack me, only for them to instead drop a gift bag with a level-appropriate hunting rifle and some ammunition in it. I still have that rifle.Most people I've…

Feature: Not a team player

Public teams improve, but don’t solve, Fallout 76’s social problems

Fallout 76 recently kicked off its new seasonal update system. The opening season is called "The Legendary Run", and gives the game another new arbitrary point-tracking system, this time called "S.C.O.R.E.". More significantly, it's also opened up the option for players to create and join teams with unfamiliar players. I've been giving that a go and it's... well, an improvement. A bit.

Get a Fus from the past in this Skyrim fan video and its 2012 SFX

Truly, Skyrim never dies. Its memes, one liners, and in-jokes are probably destined to plague our vocabulary until the end of time. Here's a deep cut for you all the way back from the annals of 2012. It's been reshared on Reddit once again because you can't really beat the silly friends reenact video games vibe. So I'm resharing it too and Fus Ro Dah…

Fallout 76’s jolly Fasnacht robot parade is back on

The Fallout 76 clown car continued its strange journey this week, as the recently semi-redeemed MMO stumbled over another technical hitch.The popular in-game event Fasnacht Day was expected to start on Monday, but was quickly stalled by a bug. Players reacted with great frustration as the event was taken down, depriving everyone of an hourly semi-charming, semi-creepy masked robot march. Bethesda report that all is…

You can try Fallout 76 and its new Wastelanders update free this weekend

Bethesda would like everyone to stop asking about The Elder Scrolls 6 for a few years

The Elder Scrolls 6 exists, in name at least, but that's the only thing we know about it that isn't total conjecture. Oh, and that Skyrim grandma Shirley Curry will be an NPC in it.Obviously, folks want to know more than that, no matter how many times Bethesda say it's a long, long way off. Bethesda's lead marketing man Pete Hines waded in to reiterate,…

The making of Fallout 76: Wastelanders

When Bethesda Game Studios decided to bring human NPCs into their post-apocalyptic MMORPG Fallout 76, they wrestled with a kind of temporal dissonance. The new arrivals were a reflection of the year or so of real time that players had spent making West Virginia more habitable. Yet those first quests still remain, locked in their original time period.Night turns to day in Fallout 76, the…

Fallout 76 weapons: where to find the bow in Wastelanders

Fallout 76 has more stuff trying to kill you than ever before. It's not just the local mutated fauna as other players are likely to shoot first. 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 for good is to make them eat a Fat Man nuke.

Fallout 76 CAMP: plan locations and storing junk

Building your own base in Fallout 76 requires you to use your "C.A.M.P." or the "Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform" (henceforth abbreviated to CAMP). As long as your CAMP is on a flat surface and not near any established buildings, you can build anything you have a recipe for. Workbenches are used to make and repair items, while boxes can be crafted to store all…

Fallout 76 has stopped wastelanders from nicking your guns

Not long after the Wastelanders update dropped, Fallout 76 players started noticing that some of their weapons were disappearing after they died. But it wasn't that they were vanishing into thin air - it turns out some opportunistic new human NPCs were looting players' corpses, and nicking the best guns from their bodies. Then would just wander round using the stolen goods right in front…

Armor in Fallout 76 can be made and repaired using scrap. With irradiated creatures and other players trying to kill you around every corner, you'll want some protection from damage.

Looks like pets are on the way to Fallout 76

The dog companions in Fallout games are iconic. Dogmeat? A hero. Rex? The best boy. I was surprised Fallout 76 never put in any sort of dog friend to help you out, but now I see Bethesda were just taking their time getting round to it. In a Q&A on Reddit yesterday, a couple of developers teased some of the stuff coming to the wastelands…

There’s a special deer in Fallout 76 that will lead you to stashes of loot (but players keep killing it)

The next time you come across a Radstag in Fallout 76, have a quick check of its name before you start pelting it with bullets. The Wastelanders update brought with it many new and wondrous things, and one of those was the Observant Radstag. These albino versions of Fallout's radioactive deer are a bit different to their regular Radstag brothers and sisters - some say,…
