The most recent Wild Appalachia patch has been added to Fallout 76. The patch incorporates Basic Repair Kits added to the Atomic Shop, Improved Repair Kits added to the drop tables in-game, a few balance changes and the new ProSnap Deluxe Camera. Players will need to discover and prepare the camera “to snap photos more effectively than any other time before”. It also accompanies the Bucket List mission that sends players off on an experience to finish camera-specific difficulties.
Repair Kits are consumable things that can fix items to 100% or 150%. The Basic Repair Kit can be obtained in the Atomic Shop utilizing Atoms either acquired with genuine world cash or through Atoms earned through gameplay. Improved Repair Kits are an uncommon drop in-game only. Neither one of the kits can be “dropped, made, exchanged or sold”.
The dev team also provided some thoughts about utility items in the Atomic Shop:
To begin with, thank you to everybody in the Fallout 76 network who set aside the effort to share their feedback and worries about including a utility item like Repair Kits to the Atomic Shop. Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve inspected all the feedback and today we want to share our reasoning with regards to these sorts of items and how they identify to the Atomic Shop. When we initially reported the Atomic shop a year ago, we said that it will not give anything that offers an upper hand. We stay focused and consider when we evaluate every new thing that we bring to the Shop, both now and in the future.
While Repair Kits do offer an approach to fix an item in the field, we feel you will discover that they are a helpful option you can use during your adventures. If we find that Repair Kits do offer any kind of competitive advantage once they are accessible, we will roll out any changes important to ensure that advantage is evacuated.
Beside from purchasing Atoms, you can additionally unlock Basic Repair Kits utilizing Atoms you’ve earned from Challenges. Moreover, the more dominant Improved Repair Kits will not be accessible in the Shop and can be earned by finishing in-game content, such as executing the Scorchbeast Queen.
