Last week we reported on a troubling (but sorta amusing) phenomenon—Fallout 76’s new human NPCs were stealing from players. Specifically, during game events when a player was killed, they would sometimes respawn to find their best weapon and all its ammo missing from their inventory. They would then see a friendly human NPC using that same weapon. While they were dead, it seemed, the NPC had rudely looted their corpse.

As far as emergent behavior goes, it’s actually kind of cool, but the real issue was these NPCs wouldn’t give the weapons back—ever. Which totally sucks for players who had spent hours grinding for legendary weapons only to see a Wastelander casually walk away with it.
