Fallout 76 continues to update, and we have a preview of the next major update coming to Bethesda’s open-world MMO. Patch 6 is releasing for PS4, Xbox One and PC simultaneously, and here’s a quick look at some of the major changes we can expect to see.

Patch 6 is the last update ahead of the Wild Appalachia releases. These weekly updates will serve as the first major content release of 2019, and new content will continue to roll out for several months. Wild Appalachia will release with Patch 7, so expect to hear more as we head into March.

Fallout 76 Patch 6 Preview

Here are planned updates for next week’s Fallout 76 Patch 6 release:

  • Stash Limit Increase to 800 – We know this continues to be a big one. Next week, we are raising the Stash limit from 600 to 800 pounds. Like last time, we are constantly evaluating storage space and discussing ways we can make improvements, but not at the expense of server stability. We hope this additional increase to 800 pounds will help you store even more of the awesome item’s you’ve found in the Wasteland!

  • The M79 Grenade Launcher and the Auto Grenade Launcher are now classified as Heavy Weapons – A fix is being made to properly label the M79 Grenade Launcher and Auto Grenade Launcher as Heavy Weapons. They will also now correctly benefit from all Heavy Weapons perks except for Heavy Gunner, as we believe it makes more sense for these weapons to benefit from the Demolitions Expert perk. Boom!

  • Accidentally Damaging another player’s C.A.M.P. will no longer tag you as WANTED – From our Known Issues list, players who accidentally shoot, hit, or disturb another player’s C.A.M.P. will no longer become WANTED and viewed as engaging in PvP. Instead you must actively work to be malicious to another player and DESTROY their C.A.M.P. objects for it to be considered a PvP action and become marked as WANTED. We will closely monitor player feedback to this change.

  • Player Icons now display in more areas throughout the game – Once Patch 6 arrives, hovering over a player on the map will now display their player icon, and Workshops will display their owners’ player icons, too. Additionally, when viewing a turret created by another player, you’ll now be able to see the owner’s name and player icon in the turret’s nameplate.

  • Quest containers during the Feed the People and Path to Enlightenment events now only accept quest items – With this fix, players can no longer accidentally transfer items from their inventories into these quest containers. As a result, you should now be able to complete these events without fear of losing non-quest items.

More changes and fixes are also anticipated to release in Patch 6, but Bethesda will wait to release a full patch notes until the update is here.
