Welcome back to Inside the Vault! This weekend it’s Fallout 76’s third birthday, and in celebration of spending three wonderful years in Appalachia together, we’re excited to share some lifetime community stats with you. We’ve also got reminders about the Fallout 1st Limited Preview taking place this week, a C.A.M.P. Pennant for our PTS playtesters, and details on in-game activities this weekend. Read on to catch all the info.

This Sunday, November 14, marks the third anniversary since many of us stepped foot outside the cozy confines of Vault 76 for the very first time. Now, more than 11 million of you have joined us in a combined effort to rebuild Appalachia, conquer the Scorched Plague, collect as much legendary loot as we could get our hands on, and so much more. In celebration of the community reaching this milestone, and because we love digging into some fun stats, we’d like to share a few numbers and bits of info about the community that we thought you might find interesting.

From the most popular items sold in player vending machines, to the deadliest enemies in the Wasteland, and beyond, here’s a look at some stats from the launch of Fallout 76 until now:

Thank you so much to everyone who has joined us in Appalachia since the door to the Vault first rolled open in 2018. We’ve had a blast evolving Fallout 76 and playing alongside you all as we’ve introduced each new questline, feature, and quality-of-live improvement. Here’s to spending many more years together in the Wasteland.

In case you missed it, our latest Fallout 1st Limited Preview is now under way! Until Monday, November 15, you can head to the Atomic Shop to claim the Fallout 1st Preview “item” for free to try out membership benefits like the Survival Tent and Scrapbox. Remember to unlock the Scrapbox separately after claiming the Preview in the Shop, and make sure to snag other freebies like the Mechanic’s Floors and Wallpaper, as well.

Catch full details for the Fallout 1st Limited Preview in this article on Fallout.com. If you would like, you can head here to become a Fallout 1st member. If you do, you’ll be able to continue adding scrap to your Scrapbox and retain the Survival Tent after the preview concludes. You’ll also gain full membership benefits, including 1,650 Atoms per month, access to Private Adventure and Custom Worlds, and monthly bonus items in the Atomic Shop.


76 PTS MothmanPennant 750x300

If you own a PC copy of Fallout 76 via Bethesda.net, and you haven’t had the chance to check out the “Night of the Moth” update in the Public Test Server just yet, then now is the perfect time. In addition to trying out the upcoming content early, and voicing your thoughts and feedback in our PTS Discord channels, you’ll also be able to earn a Mothman-themed pennant for your C.A.M.P. in the live version of the game. All you’ll need to do to earn your pennant is fire up the PTS and join a world during the current round of playtesting. We’ll grant Pennants to everyone who earned them within a week after we release the Night of the Moth Update. Log into the Test Server before playtesting concludes in early December to ensure the Mothman will always keep an eye on your home while you’re out adventuring.


76 Banner GoldRush 750x300

Whether you’re looking to unlock some Gold Bullion item plans, you’re on the hunt for legendary gear, or both, then this weekend has something in store for you! Yesterday, we kicked off Gold Rush and Mystery Pick in-game activities, which will put a little more Gold in your pockets and help you add some legendary items to your personal armory.

Each day during the Gold Rush, Gold Press Machines at Foundation and The Crater will be restocked with a surplus of Gold Bullion. Gather up all of your Treasury Notes, along with any you earn from Public Events over the next few days, and trade them in to receive up to twice the usual daily amount of Gold. Then, grab your collection of Legendary Scrip and head to the Rusty Pick in the Ash Heap to try your luck at Purveyor Murmrgh’s shop. Speak with the Purveyor and select her Mystery Pick option to exchange your Scrip for a completely random 3-star legendary weapon or piece of armor.

Both the Gold Rush and Mystery Pick events are already underway. Make sure to cash in your Treasury Notes and Legendary Scrip before both they conclude at 12:00 p.m. ET (17:00 UTC) on Monday, November 15.

Until next time, we’ll see you in Appalachia.
