Fallout 76 Bethesda's Worried Online Survival Shooter, received an update today that featured a number of fixes and add-ons of push-to-talk on PC. These all looked like good improvements, apart from a small thing: the game's "Feed the People" public event no longer gives each player a server jar of meat pot.
The change was noted under the search section of the patch and was treated as a bug fix. "Fixed a problem completing Feed People Event Quest, giving Canned Meat Stew to all players on the server, instead of just the quest participants." The fact that the mission's original payment was unintentionally caught a number of players, including myself, by surprise. "Not aware this was a mistake, thought it was a fun community they added," one commentary on the game's subreddit wrote in the official thread that outlined the new changes. Their comment now has more tasks than the actual thread. It has become a rally of kind for Bethesda to essentially rethink the event.
Fallout 76 has a number of event speeches that occur so often and are open to being completed as a team by someone on the server. Feed the People is about defending a scorched food and processing plant while creating canned food. While the players participating in the event, XP and some things, formerly anyone else who played on the server, wherever they were in the world, also got boxes of meat pots. Meat pudding fights hunger, increases health, and, most importantly, gives the player an hour-long 5% XP bonus.
Everyone makes the casserole sensible in the game's playful post-apocalyptic fiction. Fallout 76 The players returned the food store and ran to "feed the people", so if they succeeded, the people, ie other players, were fed. In an online multiplayer game where municipal interactions are few and far between, these server-wide gifts helped the game feel less lonely.
Fallout 76 Players over the game's official forums and also on Twitter seem to agree that the game needs more things like Feed the People glitch. "Please unfix" Feed the People. "Rewarding the entire server was a nice gesture," a person tweeted on the Bethesda Support account. Meanwhile, in underreddit, the thread for the thread of the event continues to be raised and raised.
It is clear that the people are hungry. The only question now is whether Bethesda will start feeding them again.
