The next Fallout 76 update will arrive next week and it comes with the usual bug fixes, plus extras.

Bethesda has provided information on high-level fixes players can expect next week with the Fallout 76 update.

When the Fallout 76 update drops on December 4, players can expect a stash limit increase alongside performance and stability improvements, balance changes, and multiple bug fixes.

While the studio won’t post the patch notes until later, it outlined what to expect.

One change is the aforementioned stash limit increase which will go from 400 to 600. Bethesda admitted the increase was “conservative,” but it plans to increase storage again once sure it won’t “negatively impact the stability of the game.”

A major decrease will be applied to duration of movement speed when hit with the Cryolator. Chilled, Frosted, or Frozen effects are applied depending on how many times a player is hit. The duration of movement speed reductions applied by these effects will be decreased from 2 hours to 30 seconds.

Players will also find a correction made to boss loot. They will now receive two to three items after taking down a boss, depending on the difficulty and level.

An issue affecting players who died while over-encumbered has been resolved. Over-encumbered players who die will now respawn at the nearest discovered Map Marker instead of Vault 76.

Players should no longer become stuck inside Power Armor after the patch is applied; however, the studio is aware of additional cases where this can occur and is “actively investigating” these instances.

The following week on December 11, another update will be released. It features additional bug fixes alongside “more notable changes and features.”

Included in the update are additions to the PC version of Fallout 76. PC users can expect Push-to-Talk setting for Voice Chat, 21:9 resolution support, and a Field of View setting.

After hitting level 50 players will be able to choose between a new Perk Card, or moving a SPECIAL point previously allocated.

With C.A.M.P. placement, it will no longer be automatically blueprinted and stored if someone is occupying the location when logging into the server. Instead, a notification that the space is currently occupied will be received.

“If you decide to find a new home for your C.A.M.P. on that server, it will be free to do so,” reads the Bethesda Game Studios post on reddit. “However, if you don’t attempt to place down your C.A.M.P., you will be able to switch to a new server where that spot is vacant and your C.A.M.P. will be fully assembled and waiting for you.”

A bulldozer is also being added as a C.A.M.P. feature. This will allow players to remove small trees, rocks, and other obstructions.

Patch notes for the December 4 Fallout 76 update will arrive later this week, and go into further detail.

The first major update to the game was released last week.
