The Fallout 76 Residential Area event is the shortest and easiest of the five Mission: Countdown silo events. It will be the first event you encounter when you enter Site Alpha Site Bravo or Site Charlie. Like every event inside these sites you’ll be facing endless waves of high-level robots as you try to complete a series of objectives. As a result be sure that you focus on the objectives rather than fighting an unwinnable battle of attrition. Additionally it’s wisest to tackle these sites with other players as these events are much easier if you have some players focusing on objectives while others focus on holding off the robots.

The Fallout 76 Mission: Countdown main quest should begin as soon as you finish Become Death. Now that you have everything you need to launch a nuke you need to access one of the game’s three nuclear missile silos.

Everyone in the game is another living breathing person. But they’re not there to help you. They can but they probably won’t. Because of this you’ve got to take care of yourself. And you do this by carrying food water supplies medicine and whatever it is you need to keep yourself alive. You could contract some sort of nasty disease by sleeping on a dirty mattress run out of food during a pivotal time in the game and you’ll have to nip all this in the bud quickly if you want to make any sort of progress. It’s a solitary existence and a challenging one that many players will undoubtedly find quite tedious.

The studio jokingly added in-line with the game’s lore By using a Charisma bobblehead you agree to exempt Vault-Tec from all responsibility warranted or otherwise for any side-effect or usage intended or otherwise of this product. All points are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged so plan accordingly. Failure for this bobblehead to improve your performance is almost certainly your fault and cannot be held against Vault-Tec or its subsidiaries.

Bethesda has already announced loose plans for another update after this one which is scheduled for next week. No concrete plans are in place for the next patch but Bethesda says there are hopes to squash out a few more bugs and smooth out a few more wrinkles before the end of the year.

These highlighted changes come alongside other general tweaks with Bethesda claiming that “several improvements have been made to in-game performance” and that the “Fallout 76 game client and servers have received additional stability improvements.” For the complete list of changes in the Fallout 76 update version 1.04 be sure to stop by the Fallout 76 subreddit. The first step in this event is to hack the terminal in the entrance area. You can then use this to disable the defensive turrets and the Supervisor. Now you can make your way inside. Beware that being too aggressive here can trigger the security system early. Avoid killing the Supervisor and take some time to familiarise yourself with the area. When you’re ready start the event and trigger the security system.
