Fallout 76 update 1.05 is now available for players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. According to the official Fallout 76 1.05 patch notes, the latest update focus primarily on game performance and stability on all platforms. In addition, the new Fallout 76 version 1.05 also contains fixes for the several issues related to server performance, balancing, framerate drop, crashing, stuttering, and more.

Unfortunately, since the launch, players are facing a number of issues and bugs like clipping through the world, frozen animations, entire buildings failing to load, enemies getting stuck in walls, audio logs not playing, enemies spawning out of mid-air, losing control due to unstable server connections, and being unable to turn in quests due to unresponsive prompts are just some examples.
