10 Things to Know About the Fallout 4 Contraptions Workshop DLC

We continue our look at Bethesda’s Fallout 4 DLC  with a look at the most important things to know about the Fallout 4 Contraptions Workshop release for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

When Bethesda announced its initial batch of Fallout 4 DLC it confirmed plans to release more than just Automatron, Wasteland Workshop, and Far Harbor.

Now that those add-ons are out and available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, Bethesda’s been talking about the rest of the Fallout 4 DLC coming in 2016.

Today, we want to focus on the Contraptions Workshop DLC.

Fallout-4-Season-Pass

Bethesda confirmed its next trio of Fallout 4 add-ons at E3 2016 and the batch includes three more workshops and a much larger expansion (Nuka World) that should have fans of the game excited for the month of August.

Today, we want to focus on the fourth Fallout 4 DLC, Contraptions Workshop, another small add-on to Bethesda’s robust game.

This roundup highlights everything you need to know about the Fallout 4 Contraptions DLC post-release. This looks at Contraptions Workshop problems, fixes, deals, a quick review of its features, and a whole lot more.

If you’re on the fence about the Fallout 4 Season Pass or the standalone version of Contraptions Workshop, this should help you get familiar with the key details.

Fallout 4 Contraptions Workshop Problems

Fallout 4's Contraptions Workshop DLC went through a beta but that beta failed to weed out every single problem plaguing the new add-on

Right from the get go, gamers with the Fallout 4 Season Pass were unable to get the new DLC up and running. Bethesda is telling gamers to close Fallout 4 and re-open it to see if that works. The developer also recommends a hard reset. 

Installation issues aren't the only Contraptions Workshop problems plaguing Xbox One, PS4 and Windows PC gamers. 

Gamers are also running into issues with weapons losing legendary status or mods when they're placed on a weapons rack. Bethesda also acknowledges another issue where armor on armor racks vanishes after scrapping the rack. 

We're hearing about problems with the elevators and we're also hearing about the usual array of texturing issues, performance issues, crashes, and various other bugs impacting the DLC and its features. We expect complaints to pickup as more people install the DLC.

Bethesda's latest update, 1.6.9, arrived some bug fixes though Contraptions Workshop problems continue as we push toward the next big Fallout 4 update.

The new 1.7 update is coming with fixes including one for Contraptions Workshop. With 1.7 on board, grenades and molotov cocktails can now be used with the Junk Mortar. A small change but a welcomed one. 

While we wait for the next major Fallout 4 bug fix update for PS4, Xbox One and PC, please take a look at our list of fixes for common Fallout 4 problems and Bethesda's support forums for assistance.

You'll also want to report bugs as you see them. To do that, head here to submit a Contraptions Workshop bug via Bethesda's website.

    You need to 1) Proof read your articles, the amount of spelling and grammatical errors is just appalling, 2) Stop spreading almost no content over 13 damn pages. All the information in this article can be found on other websites, all on one page. 3) Give up, stop writing articles, you are no good at it and all you do is make people start to hate this website. When I think of gottabemobile I think of click-bait, nothing more. This shall be the last time I visit this site, all because you rushed your articles to ‘try and be the first’, but you weren’t, it sucks, so please do us all a favour and stop.

    Adam Mills your boring, not because of the 13 pages you wrote (which I read only because I love Fallout). But simply because all of your titles are the same, ex. # things to know about blah blah blah. Also next time please just try and shorten some of the ” things to know ” to one page instead of thirteen because it gets annoying clicking on the arrows 24/7. Other than that you did a great job. I’m not trying to hate on you, keep it up.
