Fallout 76 Adding Survival Mode That Encourages More PvP

The dumpster fire that is Fallout 76 is getting updated and developers Bethesda are introducing Survival Mode. This is a separate mode from the usual Fallout 76 experience, now dubbed Adventure mode.

The difference between the two modes is that Survival is more focused on providing PvP. In Adventure mode, you have to attack a player, and have them attack back to initiate PvP properly. It’s a restriction to stop from potential griefing and harassing issues. Survival Mode removes this limitation, anyone that is not in your group or are not part of an event group are hostile.

You also cannot respawn close to your point of engagement to continue the PvP battle, only able to spawn back at your C.A.M.P. or back at Vault 76. Loot is more valuable as dead players may drop Aid items as well as the usual junk. There will also be a leaderboard to keep track of the top players.

Aside from that, it’s the same game, really. It’s just a mode where PvP is more encouraged. You can create a new character or transfer character between modes. All your items and resources are also carried over.

Survival Mode is in beta and will arrive with a new patch, Patch 5, later this month.

We are definitely disappointed with Fallout 76, which received our Most Disappointing Game Award last year. It’s still interesting to see that Bethesda are still trying something out and are fixing what they can of the online multiplayer shooter.
