There has been no end to Fallout 76’s woes. Be it on the PS4, PC or Xbox One, the game is a buggy, laggy mess.

I tried it again just a few weeks ago and somehow found my experience even worse that before!

This post’s not about that; it’s about the game’s new paid subscription service, called Fallout First.

Fallout 76’s already not the first game that’d spring to mind for something like that but hell, when has that ever stopped Bethesda?

So in theory, the paid subscription service gives those who pony up the cash a boatload of benefits; private servers, an unlimited scrap stash and the like. Not game breaking, but certainly stuff that would make your Fallout experience better.

The problem is that some of the perks don’t work as they should.

The unlimited scrap stash? It gobbles up whatever you put into it and launches it into the ether. Players have been taking to Reddit and Twitter to vent after losing all their hard-earned scrap.

‘Private’ servers too seem to be anything but. It’s glitched so that anybody on your friends list can get access to it. Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah, not ideal or even private.

Bethesda’s issued a statement saying their working on nixing the issues but how the hell did these slip through QA in the first place?

I mean, these are the perks you’re hyping to sell the service and they don’t even work as advertised! You’d think they’d be number one on the to do list to make sure they function as they should.

Honestly, I’ve given up on Fallout 76 so this makes no difference to me. It’s sad that the hardcore fans are the ones who are being screwed right now, as they’re probably the only ones still playing the game.
