Fallout 76 (FO76) update 1.16 Patch Notes

WILD APPALACHIA

PROJECT PARADISE EVENT
  • Sink your teeth into some experimental testing by joining the Project Paradise event, which takes place in cavernous Biome Labs that are now available for exploration beneath Arktos Pharma.
    • To start Project Paradise, head to the Arktos Pharma building in the Forest region of Appalachia. Enter the building’s lobby, and then use the elevator to descend into the labs.
  • Product research has never been so wild! Aid Arktos Pharma with their experiments on the Appalachian creatures that inhabit the labs and you’ll be rewarded with new loot and XP.
    • All three Biome Labs will require your attention if you’d like to claim the best rewards, so most adventurers will find it beneficial to form a group.
  • Note: This event will be daunting for Dwellers who are fresh from the Vault, as you will encounter enemies who are level 50+.
PLAYER VENDING MACHINES
  • The “Inspect” option can now be used to view additional details about items in other players’ Vending Machines, making it easier to find that perfect Legendary for your collection.
