How to Switch Camera Angles in Fallout 76 (Third Person View and First Person View)
With Fallout 76, the series has transitioned from a single-player to a full online MMO experience. Obviously, that means many of the mechanics we’ve grown accustomed to have been tweaked, but not all. Here’s how to switch camera angles in Fallout 76.
In what will probably come as a relief to you, yes, you’ve still got the option to switch between first and third-person camera angles in Fallout 76. The choice of perspective has been a key feature of other Bethesda games such as Fallout 4, and we’re happy to say it returns here in this game, too.
Obviously, having the option is particularly handy if you enjoy exploring the wasteland seeing your character but prefer the accuracy of first-person for shooting.
Thankfully, switching between the two angles is super easy. All you need to do is hit the touchpad on PS4 (or the view button if you’re playing on Xbox One), or V on PC and voila! Each press of the button alternates between third and first-person camera angles.
No need to hold it down or get fancy with it.
Of course, you’re better off aiming down sights with first person view. And when it comes to getting a better look around your character (as well as of your character), third person view is the way to go. It’s really the only way you’ll get a good look at your created character outside of when you’re fiddling with their appearance.
So there you have it, luckily you aren’t pigeon-holed into using one perspective over another. Now you get to see that dope power armor in all its glory!
Speaking of power armor, we have a guide for that in our Fallout 76 guide wiki. As well as a whole bunch of other helpful articles that you might find useful:
