Fallout 76 player finds immortality bug

Brogadyn asks Bethesda for help in killing character

Unslayable character kills a mob

A Fallout 76 player is exploring Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic world, with just one wish: to die.

Brogadyn posted a story on Reddit yesterday about how their character has somehow acquired god status. No matter what the character does, she cannot die or be killed.

“She can even eat a nuke blast to the face and be fine,” writes Brogadyn. “There is literally zero ways that she can die even if I wanted her to (which I very much do at this point).”

Brogadyn writes that the character’s immortality is a result of a bug which “I feel I would be able to reproduce the state again given the circumstances it happened.” The player has avoided using this immense power to kill real human players in the world, which incorporates PvP and PvE gameplay.

Brogadyn writes of an attempt to contact Bethesda, in order to reclaim mortality. The company responded with a boilerplate ticket, which offered no help. “I’m really frustrated and I have no idea what i’m supposed to do,” writes Brogadyn. “It seems that [Bethesda] can’t even slay my character for me, or at least didn’t mention that even though that’s practically what was I begging for in the ticket.”

We’ve contacted Brogadyn and Bethesda for more information, and will update this story as events unfold. (Thanks to TwinGalaxies.)
