Bethesda announced and released Fallout 1st, a $13/month (or $100/year) premium subscription for Fallout 76 just yesterday, but players are already reporting major issues with it. Most concerningly, many players have reported that the bottomless Scrapbox included in the subscription is actually deleting Scrap from their inventories.
Multiple Reddit posts regarding the Scrapbox have cropped up in the past 24 hours, and they’re filled with comments corroborating the problem. These players all describe a similar issue: you can store and withdraw Scrap just fine, but when you log out or change worlds, Scrap stored in the bottomless Scrapbox just up and vanishes. It’s unclear if this Scrap has actually been deleted or, if so, if it will be returned to affected players.
The Scrapbox isn’t the only reported issue with Fallout 1st, either. Players also say that Fallout 76’s new private worlds – by and large the headlining feature of Fallout 1st – aren’t as private as they seemed. Players have found that brand-new private worlds sometimes contain dead NPCs and may be missing items and enemies that spawn naturally, which suggests that private worlds are actually private sessions of existing servers which have already been affected by players. Playing solo has also proven to be a challenge for some players, as several have reported that anyone can join a private world without an invitation as long as they’re on the host’s friends list.
