Fallout 76 brings back the franchisee's Perk system, but this time, Perks will be bought and represented through "Perk Cards". Immediately after this was announced on QuakeCon, the fans began to wonder if they could buy these real-life card packages.
Bethesda has now confirmed that Perks Card Packs can only be purchased through gameplay. A tweet from the Fallout account explains that Perk Card Packs are earned "solely" by leveling up, which can put some fans thinking about the matter. Bethesda's Pete Hines also commented and said to a fan: "You only get them when you get up."
In # Fallout76 Perks are represented through Perk Cards. You earn them each time you level up.
