Fallout 76’s new massive The Pitt update is out now, and smooths out the new game experience

The Pitt update

Here are the patch notes

Fallout 76‘s The Pitt update is finally here, after weeks of previews from Bethesda on how it will continue to evolve the game.

As is customary with updates for Fallout 76, both large and small, there’s a host of bug fixes (including power armor clipping!), as well as more quality-of-life features. A big one includes more fast travel control, including the ability to travel to an interior or exterior segment of select locations.

Interestingly, the new player experience (NPE) has been improved too. According to Bethesda, you’ll now be “more prepared” to start a brand new game, as you’ll be granted more items and equipment (including a “variety of consumables”). You’ll also get a “vault fed” buff that assists in curbing hunger and thirst for two hours, and early enemies have been nerfed a bit.

You can find the bulk of the new additions below, as well as a link to the full patch notes.

Fallout 76 The Pitt update highlights (full patch notes available here)

  • Responders, Reborn: Head to “The Whitespring Refuge” inside The Whitespring Resort to meet a new generation of Responders. They’re working hard to lend aid to all who are in need, both at home in Appalachia, and in distant settlements using their Vertibird.
  • Charge Up & Take Flight: Even the Responders could use a helping hand. Complete new Daily Quests at The Whitespring Refuge to earn their trust and to charge up the Vertibird’s Ultracite Battery.
  • Head into The Pitt: Fire up the Vertibird and use it to lead Expeditions to The Pitt, where you can take on our first two Missions, “Union Dues” and “From Ashes to Fire.” Lend your firepower to the industrious Union, who have been embroiled in a battle against the treacherous Fanatic Raiders.
  • Earn Stamps & Claim Rewards: Complete Missions in The Pitt to earn Legendary Weapons and Armor, Legendary Modules, in-game currencies, and more. You’ll also receive Stamps based on your performance, which you can use to buy specific rewards in The Whitespring Refuge.
  • Visit “The City of Steel” in Season 10! Earn S.C.O.R.E. to rank-up and claim a host of new rewards, including the Auto Axe and Union Power Armor, on the Fallout 76 Season 10 Scoreboard, “Red Rocket ‘Across America’ Presents: The City of Steel.”
