Fallout 76 Player Get Banned Because Of Collecting Too Much Ammo
As it is known to all since Fallout 76 has been released late last year with a rocky start, some of the players even considering it as one of the most disappointing video games in the year of 2018. Though Fallout 76 was received plenty of negative reviews, there were still some players who are really fond of this video game and has spent countless hours playing Bethesda's online RPG (Role-Play Game). One of those players is Reddit user Glorf12 who spent more than 900 hours wandering and rebuilding West Virginia, found himself was banned by Bethesda recently for the reason of alleging ammo exploit in Fallout 76.
If you are very familiar with this game, you should probably know that the stock and stash inventory could be a big issue in the game of Fallout 76, and in order to solve this problem, Glorf12 used Bandolier perk card to reduce the weight of carried ammo by 90 percent. And then he went on to collect every single ammo he can find constantly in the wasteland which finally led to him being banned by Bethesda for having too much ammo. That's too unfortunate...
Although this sounds crazy, Bethesda did give an explanation via Email to Glorf12 and he shared that on the Fallout 76 subreddit. The email came from Bethesda states that Glorf12's account obtained more than "100,000 of one or more rare in-game items within 30 days of play."
And what's worse, Bethesda decided that Glorf12's actions were connected with the item duplication exploit which is plaguing the game since launch. They also claimed that his account would be suspended until the next patch, but according to what Glorf12 said, the patch did not do anything, and until now he is still unable to access his account.
And meanwhile, Glorf12 claimed that he never owned an item in excess of 100,000 and he suspected that his ban comes from other players mistakenly reporting him when they were trading between accounts; “I often use 2 accounts to transfer items between my characters,” he adds; “I even detail it in the comments of the above Reddit post how and why I do this. My belief is that people see a level 450+ player trading with a level 2 character and immediately think to REPORT HIM. I even got some players who harass me when I'm attempting to trade items.” the Redditor wrote in his post.
On Reddit, it has described the full process of getting the ammo and then transferring it from one game character to another, and judging by this, Glorf12, of course, was playing by the rules.
Well, now I am worried about all the Fallout 76 caps I collected in the game. Maybe someday my account will be banned just because, well, quoting Bethesda's perspective: Just having too many bottle caps. According to Bethesda's style, if you want to have infinite Fallout 76 caps, never be possible.
Anyway, it's not the first time that Bethesda is overreacting with the ban hammer. Before this, some Fallout 76 players got banned for the reason of using ultrawide fix mod, others for entering the developer room while there are also those who got suspended for just crafting items. So sorry for those unfortunate players.
