Bethesda has shared more details about Fallout 76’s next major update, which will be released on May 7th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
First up are new Player vending Machines, which will let players sell items to other players at their C.A.M.P. for caps. Once players have built their new vending machine, they can assign items from their stash to sell and set a cap price. Once an item is sold, players will receive a notification along with the caps from the sale, minus a 10 percent fee.
“Of course, to run a successful business, you’ll need to advertise! When you build and power a Vending Machine, your C.A.M.P. location will appear to all players on the map as long as you aren’t currently Wanted,” Bethesda adds. “When others hover over your C.A.M.P. on the map, they’ll see your name and player icon, as well as the number and types of items you have marked for sale. If you’ve got lots of goods or rare items, and set fair prices, your shop will likely have a few new visitors.”
Also being added in next week’s update are new Legendary Exchange Machines, which players can use to break down their unwanted legendary items into Scrip. Players will be able to use this Scrip to purchase new legendary weapons and armor from the Purveyor, a new Mole Miner vendor who will arrive in the game later this month.
In addition to the above, Plasma Gun damage is being increased by 30 percent, Enclave Plasma Gun damage is being increased by 10-30 percent, and the amount of Flamer Fuel and Cryo Cells created via crafting are being increased.
As revealed last week, the upcoming update will also introduce a new faction called The Pioneer Scouts and backpacks.
