Fallout 76 is launching in a few months, and many gamers are curious about its online features. While we all know that you can play with other gamers on a server, issues pertaining to player vs. player (PvP) interactions are still unclear. According to Bethesda's Todd Howard, players under Level 5 can't be killed in PvP challenges. However, what happens when you go past that rank? Griefing is always a concern among such games, as has been recently evidenced by Sea of Thieves. Developers need to make addressing this issue a priority. It's frustrating when you keep on getting killed by the the same players because you can't escape them.
Luckily, the Fallout 76 panel at QuakeCon 2018 provided some answers. The following are the main highlights from the event when it comes to griefing. Game Informer transcribed the quotes from the event.
- Repeatedly killing other players if they haven't attacked you will mark you on the map.
- Those who kill offending players can collect huge bonuses and other rewards once they complete the bounty.
- The best part is that the funds will be subtracted from the offending player's account after they're killed.
- If you're killed by a player for no reason, getting revenge will dish out double rewards.
Hopefully this will deter certain players from killing others without good reason. However, there's always the option of playing alone.
Even though Fallout 76 is entirely online, it isn't a massively multiplayer online game. At any given time you'll be playing with dozens of people, not thousands. It's similar to titles like Anthem and Destiny 2.
