Bethesda has confirmed that a locked vault in Fallout 76 will eventually open, but the admission came only after a player was briefly trapped in the locked area due to an in-game glitch.
The saga started this weekend when Reddit user McStaken posted pictures from inside the mysterious vault, which appears on the Fallout 76 map but can’t be entered through normal gameplay. McStaken said he “didn’t intend to end up” in the vault and entered accidentally while participating in another event.
That makes their situation different from previous players who have been able to force their way into Vault 63 and other locked in-game locations using a Power Armor glitch. Once inside, these players found a spacious, partially furnished vault, complete with overseer’s office, wrecked kitchen, and even a terminal reading “Nice Work Assholes” (a possible hidden message for potential hackers?).
