In Fallout 76, Daily Ops are repeatable dungeon-clearing missions meant for experienced players. This feature is set to be expanded in an upcoming update that not only amps up the challenge but also offers better rewards. For those interested to try it out, it’s now available in the Public Test Server.

Weekend Events

One change is that during Double Mutation events, Daily Ops will be randomized each day where enemies have one of eight unique combinations of two different mutations. These are:

  • Blistering Cold: “Blistering” enemies have the Freezing Touch and Swift-Footed Mutations.
  • Chilling Mend: “Chilling” enemies have the Freezing Touch and Group Regeneration Mutations.
  • Clouded Toxins: “Clouded” enemies have the Active Camouflage and Toxic Blood Mutations.
  • Relentless: “Relentless” enemies have the Resilient and Group Regeneration Mutations.
  • Stinging Frost: “Stinging” enemies have the Freezing Touch and Toxic Blood Mutations.
  • Swift Stalker: “Stalking” enemies have the Active Camouflage and Swift-Footed Mutations.
  • Unstable: “Unstable” enemies have the Volatile and Swift-Footed Mutations.
  • Vaporous: “Vaporous” enemies have the Volatile and Active Camouflage Mutations.

Typically, Double Mutation Weekend events occur every other weekend from Thursday to Monday. It starts and ends at the normal Daily Ops reset time. For the PTS though, Double Mutations have been set to remain active for the duration of the playtesting phase.

Now when there’s a Double Mutation event, players who are courageous enough to try out Daily Ops get these increased rewards:

  • 2 to 6 Legendary Cores for the first and all subsequent Elder Tier completions.
  • Double XP during every Daily Ops playthrough.
  • Double in-game currency rewards from every Daily Ops playthrough.

New Additions

There are new enemies to be introduced in Daily Ops, which are the Communists. New locations meanwhile include the Arktos Pharma Biome Lab, Watoga High School, and Uncanny Caverns. These three areas have been added to the randomized pool of locations for Daily Ops.

Updates on Rewards

It’s not just enhanced rewards happening. There are also Plans for two legendary weapons. Overall, the new rewards players can earn by finishing Daily Ops are:

  • Plan: Arctic Marine Armor
  • Plan: Mechanic’s Best Friend Pipe Wrench
  • Plan: Sole Survivor Lever Action Rifle
  • Outfit: Black Hazmat Suit
  • Plan: Mirelurk King Tube
  • Blood Eagle Skull Lord Outfit
