Fallout 76 will be offline for several hours today effective 9:00 am EST.  This was scheduled to deal with many of the exploits being seen in the game as outlined below:

 

We’re planning to bring Fallout 76 offline for maintenance around 9:00 a.m. EST on February 14, and anticipate that downtime will last several hours. During this time, we’re planning to remove items that have been created through duplication exploits from player inventories and stashes.

These item removals are part of our ongoing efforts to address exploit abuse and make positive changes for the overall in-game economy. These removals are highly-targeted at a specific list of items. Players who have used an exploit to dupe items, or acquired duped items from other players, may find those items removed from their accounts once maintenance is complete. It’s also important to note that only a small percentage of accounts currently have duped items, which means the vast majority of players will not be affected by this action.

Additionally, during downtime, we’re going to roll out a server-side fix to reduce the frequency that players might experience disconnects from game servers.

We’ll post a follow-up thread with more details once tomorrow’s maintenance is complete.

 

So if you used any of the exploits to dupe items, expect your inventory and C.A.M.P. to be a bit lighter next time you log in.
