Fallout 76 Glitches: Master the Wasteland with These Essential Game Twists

Fallout 76 glitches are legendary, but most of them have been patched.

Fallout 76 immerses players in a dynamic online multiplayer experience set in the post-apocalyptic West Virginia. Emerging from Vault 76, survivors must navigate a vast, untamed wasteland filled with danger and adventure. This active open-world game requires players to make choices, shaping their unique journey. They actively explore, battle mutated creatures, and engage with other survivors.

The game encourages players to actively build bases, gather resources, and complete challenging quests, keeping them engaged at every turn. Factions form, alliances develop, and players actively seek nuclear codes to maintain order or unleash devastation.

Fallout 76 is a testament to player agency, allowing individuals to shape their stories in a relentless landscape actively. And as with any Bethesda installment, the game is filled with glitches and mods. We’ll discuss the best glitches in the game as well as the best mods.

Fallout 76 Glitches: Patched

So, let’s raise our glasses to these fixed glitches. Some of these were legendary, but alas, they were patched. Some still think you can duplicate items, but it’s much more complicated now. And if there is a slight chance your game never patched, most of these will work. If you decide to play the game only recently, you can say no to any updates and play it in its base setting.

  1. Item Duplication:
    • How It Worked:
    • Building a C.A.M.P. near a storage box, placing items inside, triggering a server disconnect, and reconnecting to the same server allowed the duplication of items.
    • Patched: Normal game updates fixed this.
  2. Unlimited Carry Weight:
    • How It Worked: Repeatedly equipping and unequipping pieces of pocketed armor caused the max carry weight to become negative, effectively granting players unlimited carrying capacity.
    • Patched: Bethesda addressed this issue in a game patch.
  3. Power Armor Duplication:
    • How It Worked: Exiting power armor while dropping a portable fuel tank could duplicate it. Exiting power armor within a C.A.M.P. and disconnecting the network connection could duplicate the armor.
    • Patched: Bethesda addressed these power armor duplication glitches.
  4. Unlocked Items:
    • How It Worked: Players could create items not yet owned by them by using the C.A.M.P. if they could already create any variant of the item at that construction level.
    • Patched: Patch resolved this issue.

Fixed Later

  1. Camp Duplication:
    • How It Worked: Moving a C.A.M.P. while a server disconnect occurred could cause duplication of all items in the camp.
    • Patched: Bethesda took measures to address camp duplication.
  2. Infinite Grenades and XP:
    • How It Worked: Exploiting the Home Defense perk allowed players to repeatedly disarm certain grenade traps, yielding large quantities of fragmentation grenades and XP.
    • Patched: Patch resolved this issue.
  3. Item Duplication via Artillery:
    • How It Worked: Players could duplicate items by placing them into another player’s artillery box before they logged out, using the artillery piece.
    • Patched: Bethesda addressed this exploit.
  4. Infinite Storage:
    • How It Worked: The artillery piece allowed players to bypass stash box storage limits by storing arbitrary items within it.
    • Patched: Patch resolved this issue.
  5. Infinite Carry Weight via “Pocketed” Armor:
    • How It Worked: Players could rapidly equip and unequip armor with the “pocketed” attribute, gradually lowering their carrying weight until it became negative, granting unlimited carrying capacity for that session.
    • Patched: Bethesda patched this exploit in Patch
  6. Extra Rewards in Battle Bot Event:
    • How It Worked: During the Battle Bot public event quest, players could rapidly press the final “master shutdown” button to receive the quest’s rewards multiple times.
    • Patched: Bethesda addressed this issue to prevent players from obtaining multiple rewards.

Fallout 76 Glitches: Still Work!

Tadpole Athletics Test Obstacle Course

Not too far northeast of Vault 76, you’ll stumble upon a neat little trick at Sunny Top Ski Lanes. It’s a repeatable quest, but wait for it – it’s an obstacle course that only takes two minutes to complete! To get started, just activate the pursuit at the top of the hill. Once you dash through the course and reach the bottom quickly, you’ll be rewarded with some good quest items, experience points, and caps.

But here’s the real kicker – you can do it all over again! After finishing, just head back to the top of the hill, and the quest is ready for another round, offering even more rewards and experience. This is a fantastic option for new vault dwellers just stepping into the wasteland. So, get your running shoes on and enjoy this easy way to gain rewards and experience.

How to Get More Acid

When you’re feeling a bit aimless and quests aren’t hitting the mark, consider scavenging for specific resources.

From fixing up your weapons and armor to constructing sturdier bases, you’ll be surprised at how valuable certain resources like acid can be. You can even sell it to vendors for caps!

Here’s the lowdown on how it all works:

  • Learn how items like bags of chlorine and makeshift batteries can be scrapped into acid.
  • There are three prime locations teeming with environmental loot that scrap into acid, complete with descriptions on where to find these treasures: Flatwood, Desilva Homestead, Lewis Sons Farming Supply
  • These spots are perfect for newcomers fresh out of the vault, providing a great start in their wasteland adventure.
  • Remember, bulked acid is especially profitable when sold for caps. So get scavenging!

Westek Power Leveling With Super Mutants

Team experience can be a bit tricky, but lower-level players can still benefit by power-leveling. How? Well, you simply engage the enemies, don’t finish them off, and still reap the experience rewards. Here’s the deal: there’s a door you can use.

Here’s how it goes:

  • Head through the front entrance of west tek room, and to the right, there’s a door. Open it and lure a bunch of 15-20 super mutants all at once.
  • If you’re a lower level, you can join in and just try to tag as many targets as you can before opening and closing the door, sort of trapping the enemies inside.
  • Once that’s done, open the door, toss some grenades, and close it back up. This way, you’ll get some valuable hits on multiple enemies before they meet their end, courtesy of your higher-level team members.
  • It’s a fantastic spot for groups to gather loot and experience. So, go out there, team up, and farm your way to greatness!
