Fallout 76 Players run out of space in their inventory, and the game has not even been released yet. Fortunately, Bethesda promises a correction.
Finding and making the best equipment is a large part of Fallout 76 . The game world is full of garbage you can pick up, useful to create everything from weapons and ammunition to the bed players sleep at their campground. But every piece of that garbage weighs something. Fallout games have traditionally limited players' inventory because they are unable to run if they take too much weight while providing storage containers with no capacity limits at different locations around the map to keep all profits. While Fallout 76 maintains the limit of how many individuals can carry before being obsessed, it also sets a limit on how much players can save in containers to 400 pounds of virtual garbage. Players quickly fill their pockets and run out of space in stashes as a result.
In a popular post on the game's subreddit, a player said the Stash Border destroyed the game for them. "I have a modest amount of everything and I'm full," they wrote. "This does not give any room at all to gather different weapons and dumb weapons and sets of armor and power pans." They said that while the limited space fits into the idea of Fallout 76 as a survival game, cut against the endless loop of collecting, creating and upgrading that MMO style games are based.
"I should not be able to maximize my stash in 5 hour games," responded another person. "Bethesda should know that they have created a legion of hammerer with their previous games."
Another player even made a very useful guide for getting the most out of your Stash, with tips like destroying garbage and a hierarchy of items worth keeping. "Ammo is also quite common and can be specially designed for your weapon if you find that sweet sweet favorite weapon," they wrote. "Do not save 800 shotgun ammunition. Just drop it, it can not be sold." Although the player thought that the storage limit should at least be quintupled.
The striking Stash border took surprising players because Bethesda had first said that there would be none. "Great Away," wrote Senior Vice President Pete Hines, wrote in response to someone on Twitter and asked about the game's inventory management system. "Not aware of any limit." Since then, Hines has been hounded by players and asked 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 realized that there would be a stash limit, but that team was working to change it. "There are reasons that are there and these reasons are important," he wrote but did not expose because of these reasons. ( Kotaku traveled to Bethesda for comment, but the company did not respond or responded to any e-mail or phone call from Kotaku since 2013.)
Yesterday Bethesda announced that the increase of the Stash limit would actually 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. "While the 400-point Stash size can be easier to handle over time, we plan to increase it in the future."
It remains to see how soon the special change in the game will be implemented. Destiny stock system had a similar problem when the match first came out in 2014, and it was not until April that Bungie finally expanded the players "; vault space so that they could pick more of their rare lottery. Hopefully Fallout 76 s Stash size gets fast faster than that.
