Fallout 76 microtransactions bag

The Fallout 76 drama just never ends, does it? Bethesda's found itself in hot water once again as fans have expressed their disappointment with the quality of a duffel bag that was included in the game's $200 Power Armour Edition.

Said bag was advertised as a "canvas duffel bag", but the one that actually shipped with the Power Armour Edition is made of nylon, so it's a drop in expected quality to say the least. As far as we know, the backlash kicked off after an Imgur user posted photos of their bag and their subsequent exchange with Bethesda's customer support.

In a message back, Bethesda Gear Store Support wrote: "Due to unavailability of materials, we had to switch to a nylon carrying case in the Fallout 76: Power Armor Edition." Whoops.

The story quickly snowballed on social media and Bethesda was pretty much forced to issue a statement on the matter. On Twitter, the company said the following: "We understand and respect that there is disappointment with the bag in the Power Armor Edition. We are sorry. Please contact Bethesda Support to provide proof of your CE purchase. They will assist in granting your account 500 Atoms."

Atoms are Fallout 76's microtransaction currency, and 500 Atoms amounts to $5 or so. A decent way to apologise for the bag? That's debatable, since 500 Atoms barely gets you anything of note in Fallout 76's microtransaction store. Seriously, there are power armour paint jobs on sale for 1800 Atoms, roughly $18. Paint jobs. $18. Eighteen dollars. For a paint job.

Anyway, if you're unhappy with your bag, you can let Bethesda know by clicking this link and filling out the necessary information. Enjoy your Atoms!
