Fallout 76 - Patch 12 Highlights

Later this month, Bethesda's multiplayer survival RPG Fallout 76 will receive a new update, and this article on the game's website lets us know what to expect from it. The update's new features include display cases that will allow you to showcase your prized possessions, interior updates to some of the game's locations, an increased currency cap, and more. Check it out:

Welcome back to Inside the Vault! This week, we’re sharing a look at a few of the improvements and updates coming with Patch 12 later this month, including more details about Display Cases. As is tradition, we will post the full patch notes on patch day. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy learning about some of the highlights from the update.


Add even more personal touches to your C.A.M.P. and flaunt the gear you’ve collected during your travels in the Wasteland with Display Cases. In Patch 12, we’re adding a number of different cases, stands, and racks that you can use to exhibit items like your favorite guns, melee weapons, magazines, bobbleheads, junk, and more!

Adding items to a Display works much like assigning items to Vending Machines or a Fermenter. Once you’ve built a Display in your C.A.M.P. you can assign items to it directly from your Stash and they’ll appear for all your visitors to admire. Items you place in your Displays will remain in your Stash, but a new “trophy” icon will appear next to their names so that it’s easy to identify what you’re showing off at a glance.

To build a Display Case, head to the C.A.M.P. build menu and find the new “Displays” tab we’ve added between the “Stash Boxes” and “Floor Décor” tabs. From there, you can choose which racks, stands, and cases you’d like to build. You can place up to 30 individual Displays in your C.A.M.P. at any given time and each type of Display has a maximum number of items that you can assign to it. For example, you can place one weapon in a Heavy Weapon Stand, up to 20 magazines in a Magazine Rack, or up to four junk items in a standard Display Case.

We’re excited to see your latest and greatest C.A.M.P designs once you’ve built a few Displays, so be sure to share photos of your humble abode with us using #Fallout76 on social media after Patch 12 goes live!


In Patch 12, we’re revisiting the Charleston Capitol Courthouse to make significant updates to building’s interior. Primarily, we’ve reworked the Courthouse’s layout and design so that it better reflects the story you uncover as you play through the Key to the Past questline. We’ve also added a few new notes, so you have a little more lore to learn about while you’re there.

Additionally, we’ve split the main Capitol Building and its Courthouse wing into two different interior cells to better support the Key to the Past questline. These locations were previously part of the same interior cell and this change allowed us to adjust the difficulty of enemy spawns in both locations. The Courthouse level range now matches the Top of the World, and the Capitol Building matches The Mire region. While the Key to the Past objectives in the Courthouse are the same, these improvements should help to offer a richer experience for players who are playing through the quest.


Prolific shop keeps throughout Appalachia have let us know that the current maximum of 25,000 Caps per character could use a bit of a boost. We’re currently planning to deepen your pockets by increasing the Cap limit to 30,000 per character so that you can hang onto more profits from your Vending Machine or save up for those pricey items you’ve had your eye on.


There’s a time and a place for rest and relaxation in the Wasteland, and we’ve heard the community’s feedback that it can be too easy to accidentally start using a chair or bed when you’re busy trying to rebuild Appalachia. In Patch 12, you will need to briefly hold down the “Activate” button to enter furniture, play instruments, or drink from an open water source, so that you’re less likely to perform these actions when you don’t mean to.


We’re making a number of balance changes in Nuclear Winter to give a little more love to items and weapons that were underperforming, and tone down a few weapons that felt a bit too strong. Full details will be available in the Patch 12 Notes on patch day, but as a preview, we’re planning to increase Radaway’s effectiveness, reduce the range of the Tesla Rifle’s area of effect, and buff up the Lever Action Rifle’s ammo capacity and reload speed, among others.


Sometimes, all you need to get an edge over the competition is a new perspective. With Patch 12, we’re planning to add a Staircase Quick Kit to Nuclear Winter so that you have a new trick up your sleeve to outwit other candidates when the pressure’s on. Throw down a Staircase Kit to more quickly make your way up steep terrain and gain the high ground on an opponent.
