Upcoming Fallout 76 Patch Will Fix Buggy Achievements

By Sam Quirke, 1 month ago
The latest Fallout 76 patch, arriving tomorrow, will fix three buggy achievements — including the one that is currently completely unobtainable. Beyond that, the patch makes a whole bunch of other changes. Unfortunately, it's going to set you back yet another 5 GB.

We have the full list of Fallout 76 Achievements. Check the list for guides to unlocking them.
As explained in the patch notes, the three achievements that should be fixed by the update are:

Fallout 76Scorched EarthThe Scorched Earth achievement in Fallout 76 worth 118 pointsWin the "Scorched Earth' Event

Fallout 76Breach and ClearThe Breach and Clear achievement in Fallout 76 worth 81 pointsWin the "Breach and Clear" Event

Fallout 76Monster MashThe Monster Mash achievement in Fallout 76 worth 74 pointsWin the "Monster Mash" Event

The chance of Bobbleheads and Magazines appearing has been increased by 16%, meaning that the following achievements are also more reasonable to obtain:

Fallout 76LITerallyThe LITerally achievement in Fallout 76 worth 113 pointsRead 20 Magazines

Fallout 76ShwagThe Shwag achievement in Fallout 76 worth 38 pointsCollect 10 Bobbleheads

The full summary of changes is huge, so we recommend checking out the update for yourself if you're interested in the finer details. Here are some of the highlights we picked up on.

  • Small obstructions when placing C.A.M.P. objects will now be automatically removed.
  • Players will be notified if they have entered a world in which another player has already set up C.A.M.P. in their spot. The player can either join another session or choose to place their C.A.M.P. somewhere else for free.

  • The Scorchbeast Queen now lands on the ground more often during an encounter.
  • Players no longer gain XP when using public Workshops.
  • The boot-after-idle timer has been increased from 10 to 30 minutes. The warning will now display at 3 minutes instead of 1 minute prior to disconnection.

  • Various crash and infinite loading screen issues should be fixed.
  • Two exploits allowing for unlimited item storage and carry capacity have been fixed.

  • The Daily Quest "Chow Line" can no longer be completed several times in one day.
  • Fixes to "Scorched Earth" now allow the quest to be completed correctly and for the correct Military Commendation to be received.
  • "Critical Savvy", "Fix It Good", "Green Thumb", "Heavy Gunner", Shotgun perks, "Strange in Numbers" and "Weapon Artisan" Perk Cards have had their effects fixed.
  • Blocked Friends will now remain visible in the Friends List if the player wishes to unblock them.
