Fallout 76 Hotfix Patch Adds New A Colossal Problem Public Event And Fixes Bugs

Fallout 76
Fallout 76 MP1st

Fallout 76 might have had a rocky launch, but it’s nice to know that Bethesda didn’t abandon the game. The two-year-old game suffered from many problems, and thankfully most of them have now been addressed by the devs. The game has received tons of post-launch support. Just yesterday, the game received yet another update.

The August 18 Hotfix patch added a new public event into the game. The event, A Colossal Problem, will let players fight the legendary Wendigo Colossus. The event will allow up to eight players to party up, with the enemy located deep inside the Monongah Mine.

That’s not all, as the small update also fixed tons of bugs and improved the performance of the game. Settler Forager Allies will give correct Daily Quests to the player and solid walls can be replaced with doorway walls.

Right now the patch is only live for PC, but the console versions of the patch should release soon. You can check out the complete patch notes of the update below.



  • Settler Forager: Players can now correctly receive Daily Quests from the Settler Forager Ally.


  • Walls: Players can now correctly replace solid Walls with Doorway Walls when building in their C.A.M.P.s.
  • Exploit: Addressed a C.A.M.P. budget exploit related to Small Generators.


  • Secret Service Armor: Pocketed and Deep Pocketed Mods for Secret Service Armor limbs can now correctly be purchased from Regs using Gold Bullion.
  • Underarmor: The Brotherhood of Steel Fatigues are now correctly categorized as Underarmor, rather than an outfit.


  • Performance: Implemented several performance optimizations in support of the event “A Colossal Problem.”


  • From Russia with Lev: Fixed an issue that prevented players from entering the Spruce Knob Boat Rental at Spruce Knob Lake.


  • Map: The player’s C.A.M.P. Icon now correctly remains visible on the Map after equipping the Future-Tec C.A.M.P. Module Skin.
