The Steel Reign update is set to be released on Fallout 76 on July 7. Expect many new things arriving to the game like new quests. Fresh as well is the Legendary Crafting system which can make players turn normal items into Legendary.

To make the crafting system, you need components known as Legendary Cores. These are used with Legendary Modules to change the items. With these two, players can simply go to the Weapon and Armor Workbenches, open the Modify menu and then craft away. The Legendary Cores are earned by finishing Seasonal Events, Public Events, and Daily Ops.

Players can also upgrade Power Armor pieces by going to Power Armor Stations. Several Legendary attributes applicable to Armor can be employed to Power Armor as well.

There are also new Legendary Attributes added while others got improved. Some of these that players can expect include:
