Further evolving its world is Bethesda’s Fallout 76, which saw the release of the Locked & Loaded update last week. Here’s what’s included.
Back to the wasteland
Anyone notice that Fallout’s “wasteland” looks less and less like a wasteland with every game? I mean, Fallout 76’s world is basically a lush forest. That’s not all that bad really… except for the mutants. So there’s that.
In any event, and if you’ve been playing the first (sorta)MMO in the series, then you likely are going to dig the Locked & Loaded. The newest update in a series of massive expansions for the game, L&L brings along with it the 4th season of content, and a bunch more.
Here’s what’s included:
One of the most common requests from the community is now a reality. S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Loadouts enable players to completely reset a character’s S.P.E.C.I.A.L. attributes allowing for quick build overhauls. Beginning at level 25 players can create and save custom S.P.E.C.I.A.L. point allocations and Perk Card assignments, and then switch between them.
To swap Loadouts, edit Perk Cards, or S.P.E.C.I.A.L. points, simply visit a Punch Card Machine. Punch Card Machines can be built in C.A.M.P. or found at Train Stations around Appalachia to make changes on the go. Players can have up to two S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Loadouts per character.
Until now players were limited to 1 C.A.M.P. With C.A.M.P. Slots, players can build multiple different C.A.M.P.s, each with its own location, build budget, custom name, and even a unique map icon. Players can set 1 active C.A.M.P. at a time and easily switch among them using a new C.A.M.P. Builds widget or the C.A.M.P. icons on the map.
Managing inventory items for sale has also never been easier. Vending Machines now feature a large pool of item slots that are shared for every instance across all your C.A.M.P.s. Display Cases will be separate per C.A.M.P., allowing you to showcase different items at each one.
Season 4 – “Armor Ace in Cold Steel”
Season 4 kicks off today with a new Scoreboard and 100 ranks to achieve. As players complete quests, challenges, and events, they’ll advance along the Scoreboard and follow alongside Armor Ace as he embarks on a new seasonal adventure while claiming a ton of new rewards along the way. This season brings with it items that are making their debut as rewards, such as Mannequins, Tadpole Badges, Sugar-free Nukashine, and Rad Ant Weight Lager. Players can also expect new Power Armor and Weapon skins, new C.A.M.P. items, and new cosmetic outfits.
