Fans Slam Bethesda Over 500 Atoms Compensation For Fallout 76 Collectors Edition Buyers

Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition Compensation Package

A massive controversy erupted earlier this week after it was discovered that the $200 Fallout 76 Power Amor Edition comes with a Cheap Nylon Bag instead of the advertised Canvas West Tek Duffel Bag. The crazy part was how Bethesda Support handled the entire situation. When the issue was brought to their notice, this is how they responded to the consumers: 

"Due to unavailability of materials, we had to switch to a nylon case in the Fallout 76: Power Armor Edition," said an email from Nicholas at Bethesda Customer Support. "We hope this doesn’t prevent anyone from enjoying what we feel is one of our best collector’s editions", concluded the communication.

"We are sorry that you aren’t happy with the bag. The bag shown in the media was a prototype and was too expensive to make," said the Bethesda Gear Store Support. "We aren’t planning on doing anything about it."

Firstly, Bethesda issued an apology regarding the goof-up, "We understand and respect that there is disappointment with the bag in the Power Armor Edition. We are sorry," and then announced a compensation of "500 Atoms". To claim it, the player will have to submit a proof of their Collector's Edition purchase to Bethesda Support and they will assist in granting their account 500 Atoms. You can read the full response of Bethesda below.

Is this compensation worth? If the response from Fallout community is to believe then it's a big NO. For 500 Atoms in Fallout 76, you get a DOOR which cost 300 Atoms and some flower which cost 200 Atoms. Check out the few more response from the Fallout Community on the compensation package from Bethesda.
