Fallout 76 Looting Changes

According to a recent Bethesda blog post, players will be able to loot a lot more quickly in Fallout 76 once the Wastelanders Update drops.

Here's an excerpt:

"With Wastelanders, we’re implementing a quality of life improvement to offer more choice in how you interact with many pre-placed items in the game. Going forward, when you find items that are not in containers like weapons, food, recipes, and many others, you will be given the option to press and hold the interact button to use that item right away. For example, if you spot a weapon lying on a shelf, you can either press the interact button once add it to your inventory, or hold it down instead to favorite and equip the weapon immediately. This should make it easier than ever to consume aid items you find, make use of a new weapon, or quickly learn a plan or recipe."

Not only should this speed up looting, particularly in the heat of combat, but it should alleviate some inventory-related stresses, too.
