Fallout 76 launched over a week ago to a rather underwhelming reception, due in part to a world that feels too empty, but also to the plethora of bugs that the game shipped with. One player's situation especially stands out from the rest, as a bug has rendered their character unkillable and Bethesda hasn't been able to do much about it.
“My character currently is unkillable, and I mean... really unkillable. She can even eat a nuke blast to the face and be fine. There is literally zero ways that she can die even if I wanted her to (which I very much do at this point).”, user Brogadyn writes on Reddit.
He goes on explaining how after taking almost one week to answer their support ticket, the reply from Bethesda support only includes the steps for checking a character’s active status effects alongside other basic information that's of no use for curing immortality.
Brogadyn’s character is considered to be at 0hp which, they say, restricts them from doing a good deal of things in Fallout 76. “I've had to limit myself to more boring activities because I do not want my exploration, or the PvP aspect ruined by my godmode, and the annoying thing is that at some point i'm just going to have to not care if they cannot fix it - my character is currently nearly level 100, and just hit the cap limit - so what the heck am I supposed to do besides actually starting to make all content in the game trivial?”, Brogadyn writes.
Reddit users in the comments encourage trying to get the largest bounty cap in the game, or roleplaying as a god. One has to wonder how quickly that would result in a ban. Regardless, while all releases see bugs slipping by, this example further shows that Fallout 76 should have spent more time in the oven. Judging by how things look at the moment, Bethesda has a mountain of work ahead of them to get Fallout 76 in a good state.
