Fallout 76 scoreboard 1st rewards/bonuses disappeared for some players, fix in the works

Fallout 76 may have faced plenty of scrutiny from reviewers but continues to be a fairly popular game with a loyal player base.

However, its lukewarm gaming experience and a lifeless open world can be pretty frustrating to those that aren’t used to it.

But that’s not as frustrating as the various bugs and server problems plaguing the game. This has reportedly been due to it being developed by a new, inexperienced studio, which has in turn led to reliance on old Fallout 4 code.

And as if the existing bugs aren’t enough of a bother already, a new one has now joined the roster. A slew of reports from Fallout 76 players say that the Fallout 1st Scoreboard rewards for them have disappeared.

For the uninitiated, Seasons, 76 seasons, or Scoreboard, refers to a battle pass mechanic that provides themed rewards for completing Daily and Weekly challenges.

Anyway, the reward options on the Season 5 Scoreboard have gone missing after the last ‘fix’ leading to players having only one or two Fallout 1st rewards available. These available rewards are “Lunchbox x 3” and “Cardinal Bird Cage”.

The issue is especially bad for those few Fallout 1st subscribers that recently bought it just to claim the new exclusive Scoreboard rewards, who now have nothing to claim.

Thankfully, the issue shouldn’t stick for much longer as Bethesda Support has now issued an acknowledgment:

As clear from the above, Bethesda is aware of the issue and is likely already working on a fix. The game distributor says the issue will be resolved with a future update and you will be able to claim these items at that time.

Unfortunately, an ETA was not given out so it’s unclear as to when the promised update will be making its way.
