Bethesda Games Studios have launched Patch 10.5 today for online action role-playing game Fallout 76.
Patch 10.5 boasts a robust amount of bug fixes in addition to some design adjustments for the add-on Nuclear Winter — which has now been officially promoted from Pre-Beta to Beta.
How Large is the Patch?
The patches for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Fallout 76 are under three gigabytes each.
The patch for the PC version of the game is approximately one gigabyte.
What’s Changed in Fallout 76 Nuclear Winter?
The design changes for Nuclear Winter include allowing users to favorite a single Underarmor, Headwear item, and outfit in the Atomic Shop. These favorited items may be used in Nuclear Winter.
Additionally, Automatic Combat Rifles have been added to Small Supply Creates, Submachine Guns have been added to Medium Supply Crates instead of Small Supply Crates, and Supply Crate density has been tweaked to prevent over-spawning in specific areas.
When it comes to perks, the Dead Man Sprinting perk has been redesigned to more appropriately apply its benefits — now making Action Points drain 25 percent slower when the user is below 30 percent health.
Finally, ZAX Terminals have new entries which may be unlocked upon reaching Overseer Rank 100 and a “More Info” button has been added to the add-on’s Perk Card menu.
In addition to the aforementioned design changes, the developers have also squashed a whole slew of bugs.

Nuclear Winter isn’t the only Fallout 76 mode to receive benefits from Patch 10.5. Adventure and Survival have also received a whole slow of bug fixes, including:
- C.A.M.P. load times have been improved after Fast Traveling.
- The game should no longer crash on PC when attempting to Fast Travel from one active Event to another, when Fast Traveling/loading into a world, or when clicking on a Wanted teammate’s Map marker.
- Scout Leader Pompy is now able to be spoken to, opening up Operation Tidy Daily Quest.
