Bethesda’s latest offering in the Fallout franchise, Fallout 76, launched to somewhat mixed reviews, with lots of people complaining that the game is filled with bugs and glitches that are seriously affecting gameplay.
One of the bugs in particular has gotten fans pretty confused, and it’s all to do with power armour.
Reports of the glitch [via Polygon] seem to show players turning into mostly-naked weird-looking beast-things when using the power armour, and though it’s pretty funny, it’s not exactly ideal…
The issue is reportedly affecting all versions of the game, whether you’re playing on console or PC, and as of yet Bethesda hasn’t spoken about a potential fix for the issue.
The glitch doesn’t only occur when you’re using the power armour either – equipping and storing it can also trigger the transformation, which leaves players unable to move as well as being naked. Like your worst nightmare, right?
Players have discovered that you can resolve the problem by repeatedly respawning, though this apparently isn’t working for everyone.

@Fallout so I just had a glitch when I had my 3 power armor suits out in my camp and when I tried to get into one, the animation froze and I couldn’t move. No buttons on my controller worked except for the map button so I had to quit and reload. I lost all my power armor. 😭
