Fallout 76 adds a new benefit, but not for everyone. Bethesda this week announced its plans to expand the game’s premium membership option, Fallout 1st, with an additional perk known as the “Ammo Storage Box.” to think of options within your CAMP and use resources to achieve that goal. The new Fallout 1st perk isn’t live just yet, but it will be when the game’s Nuka-World on Tour update comes out on December 6.
If you already have a Fallout 1st membership and have made use of the Scrap Box, you’ll find that the new ammo feature is essentially identical to that one. The only exceptions to storing your ammunition are that you cannot store plasma cores in the box, nor can you store fusion cores.
“With the arrival of our Nuka-World on Tour update, Fallout 1st members will receive a new membership feature: the Ammo Storage Box!” said Bethesda. “The Ammo Storage Box works similarly to the Scrap Box already included with your Fallout 1st membership, providing unlimited space to store all of your excess ammo, with the exception of Plasma Core and Fusion Cores.”
The Fallout 1st membership was announced in 2019 and is described as a “premium membership that Fallout 76 experience.” Its main features include the ability to take on “Private Adventures” and visit custom worlds with a group of friends, but it also has other features such as a monthly allowance of the premium currency known as Atoms and in-game tools like the Scrap Box and Survival Tent that arguably give players an edge when playing with others, even if it’s a small advantage.
Extra perks aren’t added to this Fallout 1st membership too often, so while this is a rare occurrence, it’s not entirely unheard of. Bethesda FAQ for the Fallout 1st plan addresses the topic of perks changing over time, saying that Bethesda is “always considering new ideas and may add additional perks to the Fallout 1st program.”
