Fallout 76 The players get out of space in their inventions and the game is not even finished yet. Fortunately, Bethesda promises a solution.
Find and create the best equipment is a large part of Fallout 76 . The game’s world is full of junk you can collect, useful for creating everything from weapons and ammunition to the bed players sleep at their campsite. But every bit of that junk weighs something. Fallout games have traditionally limited players’ inventions because they can not run if they hold too much weight while leaving storage containers without capacity limits at different locations around the map to accommodate all surpluses. While Fallout 76 maintains the limit of how much individual characters can carry before they become difficult, it also limits how much players can store in containers up to 400 pounds of virtual debris. Players quickly fill their pockets and run out of space into their stashes.
In a popular post on the game’s subreddit, a player said the Stash limit destroyed the game for them. “I have a modest amount of a bit and I’m full,” they wrote. “This leaves no room at all for collecting weapons and blunt weapons and sets of armor and power pans.” They said that while the limited space fits in with the idea of Fallout 76 as a survival game, interrupting the endless loop of collecting, creating and upgrading the MMO style game is based.
“I should not be able to maximize my stash for 5 hours of play,” replied another person. “Bethesda should know that they have created a legion of hamsters with their earlier games.”
Another player even made a very handy guide to getting the most out of your Stash, with tips as to what order you’re going to break junk in and a hierarchy of things worth keeping. “Ammo is also quite common and can be specially designed for your weapon if you find the sweet sweet favorite weapon,” they wrote. “Do not save 800 shotgun ammunition. Just drop it, it can not be sold.” But even the player thought the storage limit would at least be quintupled.
The stingy Stash border surprised players because Bethesda had said there would be none. “Great away,” wrote senior vice president Pete Hines wrote in response to someone on Twitter asking about the game’s inventory management system. “Not aware of any limit.” Since then, Hines has been chased by players asking if the game’s stash limit would be increased. On November 6, just before Fallout 76 received a 30GB update, Hines said he had not previously been aware that there would be a stash limit, but the team was working to change it. “There are reasons why it is there and these reasons are important” he wrote but did not work out for these reasons. ( Kotaku went to Bethesda for comments, but the company also did not reply to any e-mail or phone call from Kotaku since 2013.)
Yesterday Bethesda announced that an increase in Stash boundary would certainly be one of its first priorities after the game’s full release on November 14th. “We have seen [Stash size] come up a lot and understand the frustration,” wrote a representative of the company at Reddit. “The stash size at 400 weight limits can be easier to handle over time, but we plan to increase it in the future.”
It remains to be seen how soon the particular change of the game will be implemented. Destiny inventory system had a similar problem when the game first came out in 2014, and it was not until April that Bungie finally expanded the players’ “space so they could rent more of their rare loot.” Hopefully, ] Fallout 76 s Stash size gets fixed earlier than that.
