Fallout 76 Patch 9 Will Make It Easier to Construct C.A.M.P.s, Includes Damage Protections for Adventure Mode

With Fallout 76 Patch 8 rolled out, Bethesda is hard at work on Patch 9, which will make improvements to C.A.M.P.s alongside adding new quests and features. Over on its blog, the developer outlined two major changes that it’ll be introducing via the next update.

Starting early May, your C.A.M.P. won’t take damage from players that you’re not hostile against in Adventure Mode. This follows Fallout 76‘s March update, which prevented players from dealing attack damage to non-hostile players. As long as you don’t target other players, your structures and objects will be safe.

Patch 9 will also make it easier for players to construct C.A.M.P.s as Bethesda will remove the requirement of placing all of a structure’s foundations on terrain. Players will only need to place the first foundation piece on terrain, giving them more freedom to build. This change won’t apply to Workshops.

In the same blog, Bethesda outlined upcoming weekly challenges and rewards for Survival Mode, which are as follows:
