Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition Canvas Bag Replacements Could Take Up to Half a Year to Arrive

Time to hibernate for the winter.

If you submitted a request to Bethesda for a replacement canvas bag for the Fallout 76 Power Armor edition, you might be waiting up to half a year for the bag to arrive.

In an update to customers who requested a canvas bag replacement, customers were reportedly told that it'll be anywhere from four to six months before the new bag gets in their hands. Quite a long time, even at its earliest date. Though of course we should factor manufacturing and production time into the whole situation.

Customers who ordered the Power Armor edition for Fallout 76 were dismayed to discover that instead of receiving a canvas carrying case as advertised initially for the $200 Fallout 76 collector's edition, the bag that ultimately was packaged and shipped out was made of nylon. Bethesda said that this was due to the demands of manufacturing at the time, but players were still disappointed they weren't updated on the switch.

Bethesda originally offered 500 Atoms (Fallout 76's premium currency, about $5 USD worth) but later were able to ask for a replacement canvas bag. Unfortunately, it was around this time Bethesda's support page leaked customer data from people who requested said canvas bag replacement.

The decision to replace the bags was praised but considering the current response to Fallout 76 players might not be ecstatic to hear how long it will take for the replacements to arrive. And with moves like potential loot boxes in Fallout 76 it's unclear what the continued reactions from the community will be like.
