Increased Stash Limit

When it comes to a Fallout game, Stash size is everything. Surviving in a post-apocalyptic world isn’t easy and the more supplies a person has, the better off they’ll be. Fallout 76 started off with 400 pounds of Stash space, that was increased to 600. Both of these felt like just too little. Patch 6 is boosting Stash size to 800 which should make surviving the wasteland a little more manageable.

Balance and Design

Survivors have a reason to celebrate when looking at the latest update to Power Armor crafting. Bethesda Game Studios “significantly reduced” the amount of springs needed to craft and repair level 25, 35, and 45 Excavator Power Armor Legs. Springs are like gold in the nuclear wasteland that once was West Virginia. Reducing the amount of springs required to craft and repair any Power Armor is a great step in the right direction.

Bug Fixes

There are three main focus areas for Fallout 76 bug fixes in Patch 6. Loading issues, Performance issues, and the all improtable stability issue. Players that open the Pop-Boy immediately after encountering a loading screen will no longer risk having their controls lock up. Three different infinite loading screen bugs have also been addressed. Players that quit to the main menu immediately after joining a world; when multiple players on a team join the world at the same time on PC; and if there is any kind of inventory discrepancy won’t have the chance of causing that game-breaking glitch.

Individual players will now not be able to impact server performance when scrapping a large number of items. Rapidly crafting multiple items will force a delay of 1 second between this action but only after the first few items are scrapped. Another performance improvement corrected an issue that caused frame rates to drop when multiple players were shooting their guns at once in the same area.

Some gamers were experiencing a crash when interacting with Power Armor Stations while wearing Power Armor. Patch 6 addresses this issue to help create a smoother running experience.

This is just a small taste of the massive Patch 6 for Fallout 76. C.A.M.P, crafting, workshops, arts, graphics, enemies, PvP and so much more all experienced updates. From quality of life to subtle changes, Patch 6 covered the gambit.
