Fallout 76 Patch 5 Rolling Out Today with Balance & Design Changes
The latest update to Fallout 76 will be rolling out today. Patch 5 weighs in at 3.5Gb for consoles and about 500Mb for PC and includes a number of "balance and design changes along with another large wave of bug fixes". Developers have provided a bit of context for many of the more significant changes directly within the patch notes and have promised to update the notes if additional questions come in from the community.
For example, the Demolition Expert, White Knight and Licensed Plumber PERKS were considered "overperforming" and have been adjusted in this update:
- Dev Note: In looking at the Demolition Expert, White Knight, and Licensed Plumber perks, we felt they have so far been overperforming in their current roles, and we wanted to bring them more in line with similar perks to help prevent them from feeling like mandatory picks.
CAMP, crafting and workshops, design and gameplay, and PvP have also been tweaked as have several quests.
