Fallout 76 players have too little space in their inventory and the game is not even out yet. Fortunately Bethesda promises a solution.

Finding and making the best equipment is an important part of it Fallout 76. The world of the game is full of junk that you can pick up, useful to make everything from rifles and ammunition to the bed players at their camp. But every piece of that mess weighs something. Fallout games have traditionally limited the stocks of players by not allowing them to run if they put too much weight in the scale, while at different places on the card they offer storage containers with no capacity limits for accommodating all the excess. While Fallout 76 maintains the limit on how many individual characters can carry before they are encumbered, it also imposes a limit on how many players can store in containers up to 400 pounds of virtual waste. Players quickly fill their pockets and therefore have too little space in their storage.

In one popular post on the subreddit of the game, a player said that the Stash limit ruined the game for them. "I have a modest amount of a bit of everything and I am full," they wrote. "This leaves no room to collect various weapons and blunt weapons and sets of armor and power armor." They said that while the limited space fits the idea of Fallout 76 as a survival game, it cuts off against the endless loop of collecting, editing and upgrading those MMO-like games.

"I would not be able to use my stash to the maximum in 5 hours," another person responded. "Bethesda should know that they have made a legion of hoarders with their games from the past."

Another player has even made a very handy guide to get the most out of your Stash, with tips such as which order to defeat and a hierarchy of items that are worth keeping. "Ammunition is also quite common and can be made especially for your weapon if you find that sweet favorite weapon," they wrote. "So do not save 800 rifle ammunition, just drop it, it can not be sold." But even that player thought the storage limit should be at least fivefold.

The greedy limit for the Stash limits surprised the players, because Bethesda had initially said that there would be none. "Store away," wrote senior vice president Pete Hines wrote in response to someone on Twitter questions about the game's stock management system. "Not aware of any limit." Hines has been since then chased by players ask if the stash limit of the game would be increased. On November 6, just before Fallout 76 received an update of 30 GB, Hines said he did not know before that there would be a limit for the storage, but that the team was working to change it. "There are reasons why it is there and those reasons are important," He wrotebut did not explain those reasons in more detail. (Kotaku Bethesda approached for comments, but the company did not respond and did not respond to an e-mail or phone call Kotaku since 2013.)

Yesterday, Bethesda announced that raising the Stash limit would indeed be one of its first priorities after the full release of the game on November 14th. "We have seen [Stash size] come forward a lot and understand the frustration, "wrote a company representative on Reddit." Although the Stash measure with a maximum weight of 400 can be tackled more easily over time, we plan to do so in the future. to increase."

It remains to be seen how quickly that specific change in the game will be implemented. DestinyThe inventory system had a similar problem when the game first came out in 2014 and it was not until April that Bungie finally expanded players & # 39; safe room so that they could hoard more of their rare loot. Hopefully Fallout 76The stash size is repaired earlier.
