What’s in the Fallout 76 Update 16?
Here’s what we will be able to see in the Fallout 76 Update 16 by the end of this week.
Choice in Nuclear Winter Maps
There were a lot of requests from candidates since the launch of Morgantown that wanted the ability to choose whether which map they’d like to play on during a match. Luckily with Update 16, the Forest Map is returning alongside Morgantown. The candidates now will be able to give a vote for the map of their choice at the start of each new match. The map that receives the most votes will be selected for that match then.
New Option for Private Worlds
Fallout 76 Update is offering true solo experience by introducing an option for private Worlds. Due to immense requests from candidates, two options have been added in Fallout 76 when you highlight the Private World mode. In this mode, you will be able to switch between two modes i.e. “Team Only” or “All Friends”. The first option allows you to join a private server with those you’ve already made a team with. The “All Friends” option allows anyone on your friend list to enter into the server that you’re playing just like Private Worlds works now.
Holiday Gifts from the Scorched
The Fallout 76 update also introduces a Holiday scorched event that starts from December 12 and ends on December 26. During this period, Scorched enemies will appear in a festive appear. Find them out or hear their jingle bells and you’ll be able to hunt them down. Each of the scorched enemies you kill will drop you a Holiday Gift for you to open. The gifts can be low, medium or high quality and can have anything in it from a lump of coal to rare recipes and strategies.
