How to Complete Challenges and get Rewards in Fallout 76
Fallout 76 is an entirely unique entry in Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic franchise. With a new focus on multiplayer and online play, Fallout 76 tries something new and gives players a completely different type of wasteland to explore. Fallout 76 follows the games as a service model built to keep players coming back each week with new challenges and events to check out.
As you’ve been out exploring the wasteland completing activities, you may have noticed notifications popping up informing you of challenges. Here’s how to complete challenges and get rewards in Fallout 76.
How to Get Challenges
These aren’t something you have to go and claim for a notice board or anything. You’ll have access to all of these from the beginning of the game, so everything you do in the wasteland will count towards your progress for earning their sweet, sweet rewards. No additional quests or objectives are needed to obtain these.
Just because you don’t have to do anything to get challenges in Fallout 76, though, doesn’t mean that you might not want to check them so you can complete them that little bit faster.
How to Check Them
You can view your challenges in Fallout 76 by pressing Options on PS4 or Menu on Xbox One and opening up the menu. Using the L1 or LB button you can tab over to the Challenges option in the menu.
From there, you will be able to look at your daily, weekly, character, combat, survival, social, and world challenges. All of these and the progress you’ve made towards them will be found in this menu. Simply select the list that you want to view, and scroll down to see all available challenges within that category.
How to Check Rewards
The rewards for a given challenge are shown next to it. Find rewards that you want and start hunting down what you need to do to complete each challenge. Completing these will net you a few different things. However, for the most part, you’re going to be earning Atoms, which are Fallout 76’s microtransaction currency use for purchasing more emotes and other cosmetics.
How to Get Rewards
Rewards are given out after a challenge has been completed. A notification will appear on the left side of the screen once you’ve completed one, informing you of which one you’ve complete, as well as the reward you’ve received.
Your Atoms will then be immediately added to your overall total. You can check how many Atoms you’ve got from the Map screen, or by accessing the Atomic Shop from the same menu as the Challenges list.
