Fallout universe was always home to zany occurrences and the newest questline in Fallout 76 aims to double down on that trait. Players will apparently be tasked to investigate a murder committed by a creature identified as a Sheepsquatch.

Bethesda have laid out the patch notes for the latest update in Fallout 76 which stays true to the name "Wild Appalachia". One of the highlights is the new questline named Lying Lowe, which will task players with investigating a murder by a creature that a witness described as "Sheepsquatch".

Just like the name suggests, the creature allegedly looks like a mix between a sheep and a Sasquatch, which is also a new play on the Bigfoot sightings.

Considering that the disappearance of Calvin van Lowe happened before the Great War, it is highly unlikely the creature existed but there is no telling if the nukes produced a monstrosity that found a habitat around the area players will be poking in.

While the Lying Lowe is a highlight of the patch, it is not the only one. The Burrows will come on 16 April 2019 and will be a subterranean dungeon that will apparently provide enough of a challenge even the high-level players in top-notch gear will need to group up to go through it.

According to the patch notes, vendors, turrets, glowing mass and VATS have all received balance changes as well as some redesigns.

Vendors, for instance, will now be available at the Whitespring Resort. All of the faction vendors will be available, except the Enclave ones. The pool of the seven faction vendors should not total at 1,400 caps which should allow players a better bartering experience.

Turrets are getting buffed across the board. They will now deal increased damage but will not be able to one shot players. On top of that, the PvP rules will apply to them now as well and they will have increased range in order to match that of players' weapons.
