We have a new update for Fallout 76 available now, and it’s a big one. The latest patch brings the game to 10.5, which has a ton of game enhancements and a bunch of new fixes for Nuclear Winter.
Players can now favorite an Underarmor item in the Atomic Shop. Automatic Combat Rifles and SMGs are available in various supply crates. Perks have also been revamped, such as the Dead Man Sprinting perk reducing AP drain 25% slower if you’re below 30% HP. New ZAX Terminal entries are now scattered around the map, and players can reopen the Perk Card tutorial if it was skipped.
And, of course, the patch brings a ton of bug fixes.
Vault 51 has been redesigned to allow player vision to span father and a few graphics glitches have been fixed. Some bugs from equips have been eliminated, alongside performance, stability, perk updates, challenges, and more.
Bethesda got off to a shaky start, but it looks like they’re standing their ground. There will also be updates to stuff outside of Nuclear Winter also, such as armor graphics, weapons, and bugs. VATS also won’t automatically close when Gun Fu perk is active.
