Bethesda updated Fallout 76 nuke launch codes for the current week, fixed some bugs and stepped into another PR disaster by banning the creator of Map 76, who subsequently quit the game.
Nuclear launch codes for the week of 12 November 2019 are:
- Alpha - 30232798
- Bravo - 82294527
- Charlie - 49228524
The weekly code change was followed by a patch that fixed several bugs and exploits related to item duping, workbench exploiting, weapon damage alteration and acquisition of items that were not supposed to be in the game just yet. There are also a couple of stability updates, which should kick a few crashes out of Fallout 76.
Meanwhile, one of the more prominent members of the Fallout 76 community was permanently banned by Bethesda. This is the same person behind Map 76 interactive tool that made life in Appalachia much easier for many players. Maintaining Map 76 was not the only hobby of this person either, as they were actively looking for exploits in Fallout 76 and subsequently reported them to Bethesda.
Things went wrong when the entire group got banned, although for different reasons, and Map 76 was taken down by the owner in protest of the company's decision.
Bethesda implied the ban was applied due to usage of third party software, despite being in contact and apparently being aware the player was testing and looking for exploits to root out. Their Fallout 1st subscription was reportedly problematic to refund and even cancel following the ban.
