Fallout 76: Learn from Borderlands on Handling Multiple Characters

The Epicness of Borderlands: Gear Transfer to the Rescue!

The Gear Transfer-Containers, a Blessing From the Borderlands

If there’s one thing Borderlands has nailed, it’s supporting players who have multiple characters. Unlike Fallout 76, which still has some catching up to do, the latest Borderlands games offer gear transfer-containers. And let me tell you, these babies are a godsend. They allow players to safely move items between their characters, saving them from a world of trouble. Oh, how Fallout 76 could benefit from such a feature!

Multiple Characters in Fallout 76: A Vault Dweller’s Haven

In Fallout 76, there are plenty of valid reasons to create multiple characters. For instance, players love utilizing additional STASH storage across different characters. It’s like having your very own personal stash compartment. And who doesn’t love more space for all their loot? The catch, unfortunately, is the not-so-easy process of transferring items between characters. The current methods are like walking a tightrope blindfolded. One wrong move, and you’ll permanently lose your precious gear. But fret not, my fellow wasteland wanderers, the solution lies in those transfer-containers from the Borderlands franchise!

The Many Woes of Transferring Items in Fallout 76

Let’s face it, moving items between characters in Fallout 76 isn’t a walk in the park. While the STASH capacity has been increasing over time, some players still resort to creating multiple characters just to manage their overflowing loot. And when those characters need to transfer items, they’re faced with tough decisions, like playing server roulette or praying to the honor code. But fear not, dear vault dwellers! Fallout 76 can step up its game and take inspiration from the transfer-containers in Borderlands.

Risky Business: Current Methods in Fallout 76 for Transferring Items

Currently, there are a few methods players can utilize to transfer items between characters in Fallout 76. But be warned, they come with their fair share of risks. One option is to use storage containers found in the Appalachian wasteland. Seems straightforward, right? Well, not quite. It’s like a treasure hunt, hoping the container you choose hasn’t already been looted by some lucky survivor. And let’s not forget the challenge of finding your way back to the same server. It’s like trying to catch a brahmin by its tail.

Private Worlds and the Race Against Time

For those seeking safer routes, private worlds are the way to go. With a Fallout 1st premium subscription, players can enjoy a private world free from scoundrels looking to snatch loot mid-transfer. But beware, for time is not your ally. If you fail to return to your private world within a specific time window, poof! Your past private world and its contents vanish into thin air, like Nuka-Cola bubbles.

The Courier Network: Help or Hindrance?

And then there’s the option of relying on another player. A risky move, indeed. Sure, it lowers the chance of losing items, but it’s no guarantee they’ll be returned to their rightful owner. Thankfully, there’s a safer alternative. Enter the Couriers of Fallout 76. These reputable players offer their services, but be prepared to compensate their efforts. After all, even wasteland messengers deserve a little something for their troubles.

A New Era for Fallout 76: Enter the Transfer-Containers

All these methods currently available for transferring items in Fallout 76 are either as risky as a naked mole rat in a deathclaw nest or as convoluted as a Protectron trying to do ballet. It’s time for a change without altering the personal STASH capacity. Imagine the game-changer transfer-containers from Borderlands making their way into Fallout 76. Oh, what a glorious day that would be!

Fallout 76 is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. So grab your RadAway, gear up, and start your wasteland adventures!
