Bethesda will be adding a new quality of life improvement to their online RPG Fallout 76. It's the new colour-coded weapon rarity system that will identify weapons with green, blue and purple colours based on their rarity.

After a slow and poor launch, Bethesda managed to deliver a solid title with their online RPG Fallout 76. Of course, the game is still far from being perfect but when compared to the version that was available on the launch, it's safe to say that it feels much more stable and it has a lot of new content.

Bethesda managed to turn the tide with regular updates but not all of these additions were popular within the community. The infamous refrigerator and some other microtransactions weren't really necessary. Anyway, Bethesda have another update lined up and this time it's a neat quality of life addition that should please players,

On their official blog, Bethesda revealed that Fallout 76 is soon getting a colour-coded weapon rarity system. As you can see from the screenshot that was provided in the announcement, Fallout 76 will now sort weapon rarity with green, blue and purple colours but it's also possible that we get some yellows for legendary items.

" A simple colour-coded system based on weapons’ rarity and effectiveness should help even the most unintelligent Candidates select the best tools for use in the elimination of their peers," Bethesda joked in the ZAX Transmission.

On top of this, players will also be able to utilise their user interface to learn information about any chems, bobbleheads, mutations or other active effects that may be influencing their character.

And last but not least, Nuclear Winter map is getting an Autumn makeover. The seasonal shift is underway in Appalachia so you should notice shorter days and decreased animal activity among other things.
