Fallout 76 December 19th patch available for download, fixes exploits and improves stability

Bethesda has released a new patch for Fallout 76. This hotfix will update your game’s version to 1.0.3.17 and addresses an issue that could cause the game client to crash after selecting Exit to Desktop, as well as a setting that was left in a debug state (which could allow out of date clients to connect, breaking gameplay).

Furthermore, this patch addresses an exploit that could allow items to be duplicated, addresses an issue that could prevent high-damage and explosive weapons from dealing damage to enemies, or cause enemies to heal immediately after taking damage, and adds support for Korean language.

This hotfix will be auto-downloaded from the Bethesda launcher the next time you launch its client, and you can find its complete changelog below.
