Bethesda has released update 8.5 for Fallout 76 that brings with it a new camera and Repair Kits.
Following the update, players will be able to locate and equip the new ProSnap Deluxe Camera, which “is a functional in-game camera.” To use the new camera, players need to find a broken one on the corpse of a tourist in the Wasteland and then craft a new camera. After acquiring the camera, the “Bucket List” quest will become available, which sends players on a mission to complete the tourist’s photography collection.
Also making their debut in today’s update are the Basic and Improved Repair Kits. These new additions let players restore one item in their inventory or Stash to 100 percent condition (150 percent for Improved). Improved Repair Kits can only be earned in-game, but the Basic version can be purchased using Atoms, which has led to complaints from players about a potential pay-to-win scenario.
“While Repair Kits do offer a way to fix an item in the field, we feel you will find that they are a convenient option you can utilize during your adventures,” Bethesda said in response to the complaints. “If we find that Repair Kits do offer any sort of competitive advantage once they are available, we will make any changes necessary to ensure that advantage is removed.
“Aside from purchasing Atoms, you can also unlock Basic Repair Kits using Atoms you’ve earned from Challenges. Additionally, the more powerful Improved Repair Kits will not be available in the Shop and can be earned by completing in-game content, like killing the Scorchbeast Queen.”
