Fallout 1st private servers aren’t private, unlimited scrapbox isn’t unlimited

Fans have discovered that despite exorbitant costs the new premium subscription service for Fallout 76 doesn’t do what it says on the tin.

In news you could see coming a mile off the launch of Fallout 1st has turned out to be a bit of a disaster, as fans discover that its most important features are not as advertised.

Fallout 1st was announced on Wednesday and costs £11.99 a month or £99.99 a year, for which you get a private server for Fallout 76 and some exclusive features – the most prominent of which is a scrapbox with unlimited storage capacity.

But as reported by various threads on Reddit some players are discovering that the private servers are not necessarily private and that other random players are able to see their instance of the game and join their world.

It also turns out that the worlds are not being created new but are instead recycled instances that have already been used for the normal version of the game, so some are full of dead enemies or have long ago been looted of anything useful.

No doubt Bethesda will be looking to redress these issues soon enough, but they’re not the only new bugs in the game.

Some have found that the unlimited scrapbox doesn’t actually work and that when you try to store scrap in it, it all just disappears. And it doesn’t even come back if you quit and log back in.

Fallout 76 was already infamous for the volume and seriousness of its bugs but that was when it was just a standalone game. Having to pay an expensive subscription just to discover even more problems is probably not what most fans were hoping for – even if they secretly expected it.
