Fallout 76 Update 23: Release Time

The update is expected to land on all platforms on October 13.

If you're playing on PC through Bethesda.net, you can get a headstart on building your C.A.M.P. Shelters on the Public Test Server right now.

If you do, you can earn a new PTS Pennant reward when the mode launches for all players.

"Get your Pennant by building in Shelters on at least three (3) different days, and by using 75% or more of a Shelter’s build budget before the PTS concludes," the latest blog explains.

Fallout 76 Update 23: Treasure Hunter Event

"Treasure Hunter Mole Miners have made themselves scarce since they first appeared in the Ash Heap earlier this year. However, we’ve detected recent increases in Mole Miner activity, and we currently believe the Treasure Hunters will soon breach the surface once again to begin scouring the land for riches—this time, throughout the entire Wasteland!"

"That’s right, the “Hunt for the Treasure Hunter” event is returning next Thursday, October 15. We’ve made a number of improvements based on feedback that the community shared with us last time, and we’re excited to see what you think:"

  • Treasure Hunter Mole Miners now spawn in all regions of Appalachia, and their levels adjust dynamically up to 50. As a result, they will drop legendary loot that better matches your character’s level.
  • Speaking of loot, we’ve separated Treasure Hunter event rewards into their own reward pool and added a number of new items that you can’t get anywhere else.
  • Additionally, Treasure Hunter Mole Miners have an increased chance to drop Ornate Mole Miner Pails. Players also have higher chances to get event-exclusive rewards from lower-quality Pails.
  • Finally, we’ve spoken with Vendors to negotiate significantly lower Cap prices on components for player-crafted Mole Miner Pails.

Event Start: 12:00 p.m. ET on October 15Event End: 12:00 p.m. ET on October 19
