Bethesda is tweaking a few numbers in Fallout 76‘s next patch, but the changes have left fans disappointed.
When the game’s last major patch at the end of January reintroduced a ton of old bugs into the game, fans were upset, and hoped the issues would soon be fixed. While the next major patch won’t be arriving until the end of February, the notes Bethesda has shared for it haven’t inspired much confidence.
This week’s notes revealed that Bethesda is tweaking the Scorchbeasts and Scorchbeast Queen. The enemies will no longer use their Sonic Scream attacks constantly, and a bug that affected the loot dropped by the Scorchbeast Queen will be fixed. However, those are the only changes Bethesda has revealed that will be coming to the game so far.
For players still plagued with bugs, these changes aren’t nearly enough. Fans have taken to the game’s subreddit to complain. Though Bethesda asks for more feedback on creature behavior in the game’s latest patch notes, that seems to be a low priority issue on the list of bugs players want to see squashed (which include the economically-devastating item duplication glitch, back for a second round).
Bethesda will likely add many more changes when Patch 6 goes live at the end of the month, but for now, it seems many of the game’s issues don’t have solutions yet. We’ll keep an eye out for more announcements from Bethesda to see if more of the game’s issues can be fixed by the next major patch.
