Bethesda's latest patch for Fallout 76 included a bunch of improvements but it also reintroduced old problems which were fixed in previous updates. Players reported bobby pin and fusion core bugs, as well as skill point respec issues.

Even though Bethesda fixed a bunch of problems with their latest patch for Fallout 76, some old and annoying issues got reintroduced as reported by Redditors.

One of the issues is bobby pin weight which got changed in one of the previous updates after players complained that these items weight more than they should. Bethesda heard their concerns and changed the weight value from 0.1 to 0.001 lbs but the update which dropped 29 January 2019 reintroduced the original numbers.

Players are also reporting other issues like fusion core spawn rates. Previously, fusion cores were set to spawn at 0.8/hr in workshops but after the community requested a boost to these values, Bethesda increased the spawn rate to 8. Unfortunately, the latest patch dropped the spawn rate back to the initial value.

Another major problem which got reintroduced in the latest patch is item duping. As reported by a Reddit user, the exploit which allows players to duplicate items is back and it works like a charm. A bulk crafting bug is also creating problems as some players are unable to use any bulk junk towards repairing or crafting items.

Bethesda's community manager commented on these reports directly on Reddit by saying that talks with developers regarding these issues are currently ongoing which hopefully means a quick hotfix is on the way.

The developers are also notified of players' requests to be able to respec their points after Bethesda nerfed some perks from Rank 3 to Rank 1. Some players argue that once Bethesda changes the perk completely, players who invested in that perk and it's original bonus should have the option to respec their points into other perks, which are more suitable to their playstyle.

These requests from players seem pretty reasonable as hardly anyone likes to spend hours grinding and leveling their character just to see all that hard work go out of the window.
