The release of a new patch for Fallout 76 appears to have reintroduced old problems with the game, players report.
One such issue has to do with the weight of bobby pins. When Fallout 76 launched, players complained bobby pins were much heavier than they should have been. A single bobby pin weighed 0.1lbs, which meant 60 of the things weighed the same as a mini nuke. For a game so bogged down by over encumbrance, bobby pin weight was a problem.
On 10th January, Bethesda fixed the issue with a patch that reduced the weight value of bobby pins from 0.1 to 0.001. But the big patch that came out yesterday, 29th January, appears to have reintroduced the original bobby pin weight. I popped onto the post-apocalyptic open-world adventure to verify the reports, and, yes, bobby pins weigh 0.1lbs again.
