General Changes

Patch brings overall performance improvements with a return of uncapped PC framerates and will no longer cause movement speed to increase when high framerates are reached.

The Fallout 76 client which is used by PC players and servers have been given more stability improvements since the previous patch.

C.A.M.P. Crafting and Workshops

  • Stash increase – The maximum for stash has increased by 50%, this means you can now hold 600 pounds. Bethesda plan to increase the max further in future updates once this has been fully tested.
  • Workshops:
    • Higher-level Resource Collectors will now generate Ore instead of Scrap. Ore can be smelted into various types of scrap at the Chemistry Station by using Acid.
    • Resource Collector accrual rates and carrying capacities have been reduced for each resource, including Ammo and Fusion Core Collectors.

Balance Changes

  • Enemies – You will now receive a reduced level of XP rewards for killing high-level creatures.
  • Bosses – An issue that affected instanced Boss loot has been fixed. You will now receive the correct amount of items 2-4 per boss dependant on creature’s difficult/level.
  • Weapons – The weapon damage has now been increased by 20% across all types.


Weapon effects have now been applied, when you hit another player with the Cryolator, a Chilled, Frosted or Frozen status effect will be given depending on the amount of hits the player receives.

Bug Fixes

  • Console: Fixed an issue that could cause the player to encounter an infinite loading screen when signing out of their console account while playing Fallout 76.
