Fallout 76 Bug Causes Temporary Nuclear Disarmament

No mutually assured destruction for Fallout 76 players.

Reset the clock! Currently, the endgame of Fallout 76 is all about collecting codes for nuclear silos and then launching nukes at certain locations to trigger maximum-level enemy spawns. That endless nuclear winter is currently disabled though, as Bethesda takes a look at an ongoing issue.

Nuclear codes are supposed to change during weekly resets, requiring players to farm new codes each week. Players noticed that when the first codes of 2019 were obtained, they were the same as last week. The terminals used input the codes were in a simultaneous state of complete and incomplete, meaning they couldn't be used.

On the official Bethesda Support Twitter account, the developer said that it is currently investigating the issue. Until the planned hotfix drops, access to the nuclear silos is disabled. This leaves endgame players with general resource farming or player-vs-player combat to entertain themselves.

As part of its New Year's resolutions, Bethesda has promised to provide new features and bug fixes to Fallout 76. In a recent blog post, the developer said that player vendors, new Vaults, and weekly in-game events would be coming to Fallout 76 in the future. No timetable was given.
