Bethesda shared a new blog post which details some of the changes that will be introduced to Fallout 76 in the next update. One of the changes will be the removal of useless drill drops which were awarded instead of legendary items.

Earlier this week, Bethesda released Patch 12 which added first raid event to Fallout 76. The developer and publisher mentioned that they will monitor the Vault Raids before opening them for console players and they kept their promise - the raid is now available to all players on all platforms.

And while the fresh content addition is certainly appreciated by the players, there are several issues with the raid that are causing frustrations among the Fallout 76 community. One of the biggest bugs that's preventing players from enjoying the raid is a drill drop bug, which rewards players with useless drills instead of shiny legendary items at the end of the raid.

“We beat the final boss, opened up the loot chest at the end, everyone in my team: 3 Star Legendaries," wrote user Kaelynath on the game's subreddit and added that he got a drill, a really simple and nearly worthless tool. "F*** you, Bethesda," Kaelynath concluded.

Fortunately for Kaelynath and all other players who were unlucky with the final drop, Bethesda acknowledged the bug and stated that it will be fixed in one of the future updates.

"On the topic of rewards, we've also seen some reports of non-legendary items, like Drills, being awarded in place of a starred legendary item. This is not intended, and we are planning to fix this with a future update," it's written in the blog post.

Unfortunately, Bethesda did not mention when exactly can players expect this update which is set to fix the drill drops. They only mentioned that their next update is "only a few short weeks away" which certainly doesn't sound like it's imminent.
