Player Vending Machines & a New NPC Coming to Fallout 76 in Patch 9

When Patch 9 rolls out into Fallout 76, players will find a whole new way to earn a bit of scratch on the side. Player Vending Machines can be placed in a player's C.A.M.P. to turn them "into makeshift markets" for other players. Players can sell both unneeded items or crafted goods. Vending Machines will appear on the game map to assist buyers as long as the seller isn't Wanted. Players set Cap prices and, once an item sells, will collect that amount minus 10% "to maintain a healthy economy".

With Patch 9, players will also find the newly added Legendary Exchange Machines in Train Stations that will allow them to break down unwanted legendary items. Doing so will yield a new currency called Legendary Scrip that can then be used when The Purveyor enters the game later in May. She will sell Legendary Items, but only takes Scrip in exchange.

Other components of Patch 9 include:

  • survival scoreboard updates
  • weapon adjustments 

Lastly, the arrival of Display Cases is being delayed slightly:

As some of you may already be aware, we’re planning to add display cases so that you can show off some of the items you’ve collected, such as weapons, bobbleheads, and magazines, in your C.A.M.P.s. We’re excited to bring this feature to the game, but it’s going to take a little more time and testing to make sure we get it right. As a result, display cases are going to arrive a few weeks after we release Patch 9. We know many of you are waiting to be able to flaunt your collections, and we appreciate your patience.

Patch 9 is expected to be live on May 7th.
