What do you get when you combine a company legendary for its ability to release buggy or unpolished games and an online game with a public beta jutting right up against the launch date? You can answer “good times” or “Fallout 76” as your snarky heart desires, they’re both right. Users on Reddit have compiled a list of some major issues, which include things like the ability to constantly ignore damage and the ability to yoink another player’s IP address. You know, fun stuff.
Obviously, Bethesda has indicated that all of these issues are being worked on, although it remains to be seen how much work will actually be done by the time the game is scheduled to go live for everyone. And remember, that speedhack will be gone! Many of these issues will only be issues on the PC, at least, which is sort of a blessing in disguise with the lack of crossplay, in much the same way that learning the only contaminated beef is being shipped to your part of the country. So this is a problem, especially as the lack of a wipe at launch means that the real punishment may well be a stern warning to not do that again.
