Fallout 76 Popcorn Machine not appearing on the C.A.M.P build menu issue under investigation

Fallout 76 is the latest entrant in the long-running Besthesda published Fallout franchise. Unlike its previous iterations, the game is online only.

The story is a prequel to the earlier games with Fallout 76 being the first multiplayer game by Bethesda Game Studios. It runs on the quite dated Creation Engine, the same engine that powered Skyrim.


Since its release, many have criticized the game for being a buggy mess at best, with bugs popping up every once in a while.

Unsurprisingly, frequent updates to the game failed to address all of the issues with players affected by bugs and issues to date such as the recent Pepper Shaker rubberbanding issue that made enemies nearly unkillable.

Having said that, Fallout 76 players are now reporting that the Popcorn Machine is not appearing on the C.A.M.P build menu. Players are disappointed since they couldn’t collect or see the Popcorn Machine even though they collected it.

The Popcorn machine was introduced as part of the Fallout 76 New World update and could be unlocked by completing a set of trick-or-treating weekly challenges.


I’ve finished the season, but got locked out of the popcorn machine. I’ve noticed I haven’t even signed on since I got blocked from the popcorn machine. Anyone else just stop playing because of this? Hopefully I’ll get some mojo back soon and go farm the reaper cut out or something but for now I’m kinda without a goal

@BethesdaSupport what’s the point in doing the challenge for the popcorn machine 2 weeks straight if we don’t get it because you have it disabled I completed the event and nothing

Thankfully, unlike some other bugs in the game, Bethesda acknowledged the Fallout 76 Popcorn machine not appearing issue. Furthermore, they said that it is under investigation with the developers working on a fix as soon as possible.

We’re investigating reports that the Popcorn Machine awarded by completing trick-or-treating Weekly Challenges is not currently appearing in the C.A.M.P. build menu. We believe we’ve identified the cause of the issue and will be working on a fix as soon as we can.
