[Updated] Fallout 76 'Meat Week' bug where rare rewards aren't granted gets acknowledged, fix in the works

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on April 29, 2022) follows:

Developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks, Fallout 76 is the latest installment in the post-apocalyptic open-world franchise. It is also the first multiplayer game in the series.

While Fallout 76 has sold more than 2.46 million copies, it was highly criticized because of several technical glitches that surfaced just days after its release.


While the developers have fixed most of the problems, issues such as the infamous Vendor bug and missing poses from Photomode still haunt many.

And as if the aforementioned issues weren’t troubling enough, Fallout 76 players are now saying (1,2,3,4,5) they are not getting any rare rewards from ‘Meat Week’. Many say they have completed all meat cook but still haven’t received any rewards.

Players have tried restarting their game and checking for corrupted files but nothing seems to help with the problem. Below are some reports from Fallout 76 players who haven’t received any rare rewards even after completing the Meat Week events.


No rewards from Meat Week? Just checking, and maybe I’m just unlucky, but after the first two Meat Week events I’ve received no plans or any other “event” rewards for it, beyond a single meat cleaver, a drink and the standard one star PA piece. Is anybody else having this?

Any update on the meat week bugs? I have been playing now and done maybe 17 to 20 meat week events. I have been kicked out of 4 and I just cant get any rewards. All I want is tenderizer and peppershaker. I mean I want more but at this point it feels to much to hope it will happen. So is there any news on fixing the bug and whether or not they will “compensate” for the issue?

Thankfully, Bethesda Support has commented on the Fallout 76 issue where players are not getting rare rewards for Meat Week and said they are working on a fix.

We’re aware of the reports that Meat Week isn’t granting rare rewards properly after completing the event. We are actively working on a solution, and we should have more information to share with you soon. Thank you so much for your patience!

However, there is no ETA on when the patch will be out. As always, we will let you know once the developers fix the problem at hand so make sure you keep checking this space for more information.

Update 1 (April 30)

12:17 pm (IST): Fallout support on Twitter has informed players that the Meat Week was canceled due to a bug. Moreover, it was replaced with the Invaders from Beyond event.
