'Fallout 76' Patch 6 Update Notes: Stash Limit Increases, Weapon Reclassification and More

A major Fallout 76 update is planned for next week. Find out everything February's Patch 6 will bring including new stash limits, weapon reclassification and more.

On the heels of a much-needed server maintenance, Bethesda has revealed a preview of the next major Fallout 76 update — Patch 6 — along with notes about future content and events scheduled outside of Patch 6. In the notes, the devs details all the new updates and changes coming to the game ahead of the Wild Appalachia weekly updates set to kick off in March.

According to the devs, Patch 6 will be the last patch before the new Wild Appalachia updates. The upcoming weekly updates will bring a series of new quests and events for players to complete. Wild Appalachia will be one of the biggest content updates of the year bringing new tasks to C.A.M.P.s, Crafting and more. We should also see the new PvP Survival Mode release in March as well.

Besides bringing new content, Bethesda is also planning Fallout 76 Community live streaming on Twitch and Mixer. During the streams, community managers will also endeavor to answer players' real-time questions about the game. Future content of the streams will be based off of feedback from the community. The first stream is tentatively scheduled to take place on Friday, February 22, from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. ET.

So what can we expect in Patch 6? While the devs will be rolling out a full 2019 roadmap later this month, February's patch 6 is set to bring changes and fixes that should make gameplay more enjoyable. Below we've listed a highlights of Patch 6 as revealed in the preview patch notes.

Patch 6 will release during the week of February 17-23. The patch is planned to release simultaneously across all platforms ( Xbox One, PC and PS4). Here's what you can expect:

  • Stash Limit Increase to 800 – We know this continues to be a big one. Next week, we are raising the Stash limit from 600 to 800 pounds. Like last time, we are constantly evaluating storage space and discussing ways we can make improvements, but not at the expense of server stability. We hope this additional increase to 800 pounds will help you store even more of the awesome item's you've found in the Wasteland!
  • M79 Grenade Launcher and the Auto Grenade Launcher are now classified as Heavy Weapons – A fix is being made to properly label the M79 Grenade Launcher and Auto Grenade Launcher as Heavy Weapons. They will also now correctly benefit from all Heavy Weapons perks except for Heavy Gunner, as we believe it makes more sense for these weapons to benefit from the Demolitions Expert perk. Boom!
  • WANTED Tag Updates - Accidentally damaging another player's C.A.M.P. will no longer tag you as WANTED – From our Known Issues list, players who accidentally shoot, hit, or disturb another player's C.A.M.P. will no longer become WANTED and viewed as engaging in PvP. Instead you must actively work to be malicious to another player and DESTROY their C.A.M.P. objects for it to be considered a PvP action and become marked as WANTED. We will closely monitor player feedback to this change.
  • Player Icons now display in more areas throughout the game – Once Patch 6 arrives, hovering over a player on the map will now display their player icon, and Workshops will display their owners' player icons, too. Additionally, when viewing a turret created by another player, you'll now be able to see the owner's name and player icon in the turret's nameplate.
  • Quest Containers during the Feed the People and Path to Enlightenment events now only accept quest items – With this fix, players can no longer accidentally transfer items from their inventories into these quest containers. As a result, you should now be able to complete these events without fear of losing non-quest items.
