Players of Fallout 76 have been left high and dry again as a new game patch has reintroduced a series of bugs into the Bethesda title that seems doomed for failure.
The latest patch, which contained nerfs, a cap on in-game carry weight and general bug-fixes seems to have accidentally brought back bugs that players thought were long-gone [via PCGamer].
Of the many bugs being reported since the patch the most annoying appear to be the item duplication bug and heavy bobby-pins that’ll weight your character way, way down.
Over on Reddit’s Fallout forum a user known as gX-kID has posted a very detailed exploration of the errors, saying:
“In case you haven’t heard: Today’s update of the game reintroduced a few old bugs into the game, like the bobby pin weight, bulked items not working properly, fusion core spawn rate at work shops being too low by a factor of 10 (down to 0.8 instead of 8 per hour) and it also looks like duping is back on the menu.
“The way it’s looking right now everything points to them having based this patch on an older build, hence the old squashed bugs coming back to life and even duping working again – check eBay and you will see how much the duping exploits are really ‘fixed’.”
It seems like this is the final straw for a lot of fans of the game, with one Redditor responding with: “Rip I haven’t played in like a month. Patiently waiting for the revival.”
Bethesda has yet to comment on the issues users are facing since the last update.
The new #Fallout76 patch reintroduces heaps of old bugs and was likely based on an old/broken build of the game.
At this point, they really need to ‘Final Fantasy 14’ this game. Take it down and rebuild it. Its the only way to rebuild the game’s brand, and Bethesda’s.
