Everything Fallout 76 Steel Reign Adds
In the new update, Fallout is introducing a legendary crafting system, leveling up a player’s ability to improve their gear (including with Legendary Power Armor). Fallout 76 Steel Reign uses legendary cores and modules to enable legendary crafting at weapon and armor workbenches. Through these items, players can upgrade, downgrade, and re-roll legendary attributes to make items that are the best fit for their playstyle.
A caravan merchant, Minerva is a new addition to the world of Fallout 76 Steel Reign. She will trade items and supplies in exchange for gold bullion, the in-game currency, in addition to offering Daily Ops. Every week from Monday to Wednesday is the Minerva’s Emporium event, where everything is regular cost, while Thursdays to Mondays will be her Big Sale event. Players can find Minerva in either Fort Atlas, Foundation, or The Crater settlements.
The newest Fallout 76 season follows K.D. Inkwell in her journey to the 42nd century. She finds herself in a strange new world ruled by the M.I.N.D. Organization, a collective of dolphin-hybrid humans set on pulling the remains of humanity into their collective. There are 100 ranks in the season for players to work through, replete with fresh challenges and rewards. Fallout 76 Steel Reign players can continue to level up after 100 ranks, as Season 5 introduces unlimited rank-ups to the franchise, but XP challenges and corresponding rewards are capped at rank 100.
There’s been an increase on several fronts to the in-game Fallout 76 currency cap. Players can now carry up to 40,000 caps, 10,000 gold bullions, and 5,000 scrips. Additionally, the daily vendor limit is now 400 gold bullions and 300 scrips. Meat Week, set to return Aug. 17-23, has added new rewards including plans for a pepper shaker, grocery cart grill, fruit wreath, and fruit bowl. Fallout 76 Steel Reign also unlocks additional C.A.M.P. slots (three total) and S.P.E.C.I.A.L. loadouts (13 total) from the atomic shop.
