Fasnacht Day is nearly here and hopefully, we could see more information on what to expect in a blog post from the team later this week. Stay tuned.
What is Fasnacht Day in Fallout 76?
Quite simply, Fasnacht Day is a semi-regular event within Fallout 76 that is held in the town of Helvetia. Here's the complete explanation, as per Bethesda:
"As a reminder, Fasnacht Day has two parts: First, the Master of Ceremonies will ask you to find and aid nearby Protectrons with party prep, like gathering meal ingredients, decorating, playing musical instruments, and more. Then, you’ll meet the bots at the center of town to join in the Fasnacht Parade. Defend the Protectrons until they reach the end of their route, and you’ll earn some loot. The more parade marchers that survive, the higher your chances to get rare rewards."
