Mutated Public Events

Mutations are strange evolutionary buffs that make your foes even deadlier. At the top of the hour, every hour, a Mutated Public Event will appear. A special icon will indicate the Public Event is Mutated, with regular Public Events appearing for the remainder of the hour. Mutated Public Events can include certain conditions such as:

  • Volatile: Enemies explode upon death
  • Active Camouflage: Enemies are cloaked when not attacking
  • Resilient: Enemies can only be slain with a melee attack
  • Freezing Touch: Slow targets down upon attack
  • Toxic Blood: Enemies leave behind small poisonous hazard upon death
  • Group regeneration: Enemies heal each other when within radius
  • Swift Footed: Increased movement and attack speed

While Mutations increase the challenge of Public Events, surviving brings plenty of rewards. Completing Mutated Public Events will earn players loot including XP, Legendary items, Treasury Notes or even a Mutated Package, containing a chance for some rare goodies. Earn additional rewards by completing Mutated Public Events with Fallout 1st members, regardless of whether or not you’re subscribed!

Daily Ops Improvements 

A new threat has joined the Daily Ops rogue gallery: Aliens from beyond the stars have made their way to Daily Ops! Players will also visit three new Daily Ops locations including: Capitol Building, Garrahan Mining Headquarters and Morgantown High School. Do you and your crew have what it takes to save the day?


Finally, an all-new Season makes its way to Fallout 76! Join an adventurous hunter of the most elusive game for a perilous journey through Season 12: Rip Daring and the Cryptid Hunt. Earn S.C.O.R.E. as you play the game to boost your ranks and unlock new rewards, ranging from consumables to currency to cosmetics.
