The Fallout 76 drama just never ends, does it? Bethesda's found in hot water Once again as fans have expressed their disappointment with the quality of a duffel bag that was included in the game's $ 200 Power Armor Edition.
Said bag was advertised as a "canvas duffel bag", but the one that actually shipped with the Power Armor Edition is made of nylon, so it's a drop in expected quality to say the least. As we know, the backlash was kicked off after an Imgur user posted photos of their bag and their subsequent exchange with Bethesda's customer support.
In a message back, Bethesda Gear Store Support wrote: "Due to unavailability of materials, we had to switch to a nylon carrying case in the fallout 76: Power Armor Edition". Whoops.
The story quickly snowballed on social media and Bethesda was pretty much forced to issue a statement on a statement. On Twitter, the company said the following: "We understand and respect that there is no doubt in the bag in the power armor. 500 Atoms. "
Atoms are Fallout 76's microtransaction currency, and 500 atoms amounts to $ 5 or so. A decent way to apologize for the bag? That's debatable, since 500 Atoms barely gets you anything of note in Fallout 76's microtransaction store. Seriously, there are power armor paint jobs on sale for 1800 atoms, roughly $ 18. Paint jobs. $ 18. Eighteen dollars. For a paint job.
Anyway, if you are unhappy with your bag, you can let Bethesda know this link and fill out the required information. Enjoy your Atoms!
