Have you ever gotten mad at a refrigerator? I know I have: The one in the apartment I’m in right now has a dripping problem that we can’t seem to crack. A fridge is also creating anger in Fallout 76 mostly due to its price tag and its perceived “pay for power” application.
The fridge is a C.A.M.P. object that reduces the time it takes for food to spoil by 50%, which sounds pretty handy for a multiplayer survival sandbox-y thing. However, this particular item is only in the cash shop for a cool 700 Atoms or $7 — very nearly the same price as the Automatron DLC as pointed out by one redditor. What’s more, the fridge item was originally a community suggestion, so you can pretty much imagine Fallout 76 players are a bit miffed.
In other update news for the game, yesterday’s update brought about a new Morgantown map, matchmaking, and limited time rewards for Nuclear Winter, made a variety of balance updates, and has turned several map events into Public Events that have a variety of mechanics changes like free fast travel to an Event and no dropped Junk on player death. All the complete details are in the patch notes.
