Welcome back to Inside the Vault! This time, we’re sharing an update with you on the status of challenges during The Legendary Run, details on how your C.A.M.P. or photomode shots can get featured on Fallout.com, and our latest Double XP event, which begins just a little later today.
AN UPDATE ON CHALLENGES AND S.C.O.R.E.
Over the past few weeks, we have been actively investigating an issue that can cause daily and weekly challenges to automatically complete for some players. As part of a hotfix we released a few days ago, we implemented some logging to help us more effectively track down the root cause of the bug. We also included a fix for the issue, which we enabled yesterday after reviewing information from that logging. Our data show that this fix has addressed the vast majority of instances of this bug, and we are pursuing a more complete fix in the next few days. We apologize to those of you who lost chances to earn some S.C.O.R.E. due to auto-completing challenges. While we can’t grant you replacement S.C.O.R.E. directly, we are planning to add some additional challenges to help make up for S.C.O.R.E. that you may have missed out on.
To start, we’ve added bonus daily challenges every day this week, meaning there are now a total of nine dailies you can complete until July 20. We’re looking into additional challenges like these as The Legendary Run continues. For example, we are planning to add some bonus weekly and daily challenges to the final week of the Season. We also have our first Double Daily S.C.O.R.E. Bonus event coming up, which starts on July 23. During that time, all of your daily challenges will award you twice the normal amount of S.C.O.R.E. when you complete them.
Finally, many players have been asking about when they will be able to rank up using Atoms. We initially delayed this from the July 14 start date, but we plan to enable purchasing rank-ups with Atoms starting today as an option for those of you who are so inclined. We would once again like to apologize to those of you who were affected by the challenge issue, and we will continue to look for opportunities to make up your missing S.C.O.R.E. this Season. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the added daily challenges and upcoming Double Daily S.C.O.R.E. event.
Fallout 76 has an incredibly passionate community, and we love being able to celebrate everything our players create in-game. To help showcase your talents and put them on display for all to see, we now have two ways that you can share your creations with us on a monthly basis, each offering you the chance to be featured on Fallout.com!
There’s nothing quite like finding the perfect place to call “home sweet home” in Appalachia. Since Fallout 76 launched, we’ve seen tons of our players post about their impressive, gorgeous, and sometimes strange C.A.M.P. designs. You dedicate tons of time to perfecting your Wasteland abodes, and we’d love to spotlight your hard work.
Starting this month, we’re now accepting submissions for our monthly “C.A.M.P. Creations” series where you can show everyone what you’ve been busy constructing. Each month will feature a new theme to help inspire your architectural and interior designs, and July’s theme is “Outer Space.” Submissions are open from now until July 31, which is when our first C.A.M.P. Creations article will hit Fallout.com. Be sure to read our C.A.M.P. Creations forum thread for more details, snap a few stellar Photomode shots of your build, and then add them as a reply.
While you’re admiring your fellow Dwellers’ C.A.M.P.s, swing by the Photomode submission thread for Around Appalachia, as well! Every month we select our favorite photos to feature in an article that celebrates all the amazing shots you take. This month’s theme is “Creature Feature, and there’s still plenty of time to submit your photos before entries close on July 27.
GET DOUBLE XP THIS WEEKEND!
Prepare to level up with ease this weekend, because we’re kicking off a new Double XP event a little bit later today! Whether you decide to take on some quests and events in Adventure Mode, go creature hunting in your Private World, square off with other Candidates in Nuclear Winter, or anything else this weekend, you’ll rake in twice as much experience along the way. This also counts toward your XP and level-up Daily and Weekly Challenges, so you should be able to pocket some extra S.C.O.R.E., as well. Catch the event details below, and we hope you’ll join us in Appalachia this weekend!
DOUBLE XP DATES AND TIMES:
- Event Start: 12:00 p.m. ET on Thursday, July 16
