I’ll be honest, the only reason I enjoy the Brotherhood of Steel is that they have neat toys, which I suspect would be a prime reason for Fallout 76 players to join in on the community goal of building a Brotherhood of Steel base, which is something that can now be done with the latest update.
In addition to helping the faction have a big new house in the world, the update has also added “A Colossal Problem” to the game, which is the name of a new public event and (ideally) not another series of game-shattering bugs. This level 50 event will see teams of players delve into the Monongah Mine to take on a variety of challenges like falling debris, a massive drill, and a variety of creatures including a legendary Wendigo Colossus. All of this runs on a timer, so players will want to work quickly to slay the beasties and escape the mine.
The update also sets the table for the return of Meat Week on August 18th as well as changes to the Ammo Converter, updates to quests, and a ream of bug fixes. All of the details are in the patch notes.
