Fallout 76 somehow managed to stay out of the headlines and keep trucking without much in the way of additional negative press for the past two weeks or so, but it seems now something's bugged once again. This time, it's the nukes.
Fallout 76 nukes have been disabled according to recent findings, and it's as-of-yet unclear what, exactly, this means for the game, or even if it's been done by Bethesda on purpose at all.
According to a recent discussion on Reddit, nuclear launch codes have disappeared from player inventories, as is normal, but once players tried farming out new ones, they found them to be the same as the ones that disappeared. This means that the codes have to be changed manually by Bethesda staff, which hasn't been done in some time now.
Now, while some have been saying that Bethesda has disabled nukes on purpose in order to run a special Fallout 76 holiday event, players have surmised that this isn't right. Instead, since the codes weren't reset properly, Bethesda are now more likely scrambling to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
