Fallout 76 Players Found In This Secret Developer Room Are Likely To Get The Banhammer
Bethesda has had more than a few problems with Fallout 76, though fans of the franchise had very high hopes. The biggest issue early on was that the game was riddled with bugs, rendering it unplayable many players. In addition, Bethesda has at times been rather heavy-handed with the ban hammer, with reports that some players were being banned for using mods to improve game graphics, though modding has historically been a huge part of the Fallout ecosystem in past franchise releases. Today, a new report has surfaced that players are using glitches to access a hidden developer room in the game, and once inside they are stealing items and paints to sell to other players for real money, or for their own personal cheat gain.
Bethesda later made a post to reddit, stating that it was banning accounts of players who enter the area. Bethesda is also restricting the exchange of unreleased power armor paint jobs, and reports indicate that the sellers are being banned, but the people who purchased the items aren't. Some comments on the PSA thread that Bethesda started on Reddit are from gamers who exchanged for or bought these illicit items, stating they had no idea they were illicit and simply thought they were getting very rare items. This is perhaps why the buyers are being left alone.
