38 Common Fallout 4 Problems & How to Fix Them

While we wait for the next Fallout 4 update to arrive, we want to help you fix your Fallout 4 problems on the Xbox One, PS4 or PC.

Fallout 4 is an impressive game but it’s from from perfect. Bethesda’s squashed a number of glaring problems but gamers continue to complain about outstanding bugs and issues on all three platforms.

It took awhile but Bethesda’s pushed out another free Fallout 4 update. The Fallout 4 1.9 update brings bug fixes, changes to Fallout 4 mods, and some brand new features for PlayStation 4 Pro owners.

Fallout-4-problems-4

The Fallout 4 1.9 update fixes problems but it also brings some problems of its own. We expect complaints about it, and the various Fallout 4 DLC add-ons, to pick up as more users download and install them on their system of choice.

While we wait for Bethesda to cook up another update, and it could be weeks before we see the next patch, we want to try and help you fix the problem(s) plaguing your game.

This looks at the most common Fallout 4 problems including issues plaguing Automatron, Wasteland Workshop, Far Harbor, Contraptions Workshop, Vault-Tec Workshop, and Nuka World. It also includes fixes for performance issues, fixes for Fallout 4 crashes, and more.

What to Do If Fallout 4 DLC Isn’t Showing Up

Let’s start with some quick fixes for Bethesda’s DLC add-ons.

These steps will work for all six DLC add-ons.

Why Was I Kicked Out of Nuka World?

Bethesda notes that if you kill a settler you recently intimidated it will count as a crime toward Nuka World’s Raider factions.

To avoid getting kicked out you’ll want to load an earlier save and wait awhile longer before killing the person. You might also choose to spare them.

Why Is My Outpost or Vassal Still Under Raider Control?

If you recently killed a Raider Leader and the Outpost or Vassal is still under Raider control, you’ll need to slaughter everyone at the settlement.

Once you take care of this, the settlers should respawn and return them to their original control settings so that you can officially take over.

How to Fix Nuka-Galaxy Ride Problems

When you restore power to Nuka World and get on the Nuka-Galaxy ride, you might get stuck in the cart. It’s a common issue. If this happens, you’ll need to reload from a previous save.

How to Fix a Logic Gate Problem

If you’re using the Fallout 4 Contraptions Workshop DLC, you’re probably familiar with logic gates. Sometimes, these logic gates will remain powered on after you turn them off. If this happens, you have a few way to fix the issue.

Contraptions-Workshop-14

We’ve had success storing the logic gate. You can also try replacing it completely. Others report that they’ve simply turned the broken gate on and off again to get it to stay off.

What If Overseer Barstow is Dead? Can I build Vault-Tec Prototypes?

If you’re playing the Vault-Tec Workshop DLC and Overseer Barstow dies, you can still build Vault-Tec Prototypes.

All you need to do is loot her corpse and you’ll be on your way. It’s as simple as that.

How to Find Old Longfellow

If you get to Far Harbor and can’t find Old Longfellow, there’s a simple fix that Bethesda itself recommends.

Old-Longfellow-Far-Harbor

If you can’t find him the developer says that “you should return to the Far Harbor docks and speak with Captain Avery. Longfellow may either be in the town or at his cabin to the north.”

Do that and you should find your elderly companion.

How to Fix Far Harbor Settlement Item Problems

If you’re unable to use unlocked settlement items at Far Harbor settlements, here’s what the developer recommends.

Bethesda says that you should “exit Workshop mode, move around so that you are facing the Workshop from a different angle, and try again.”

How to Fix Invisible Character Problems

If your character turns invisible, you’ll want to exit out of your game and restart. If you’re using a PS4 or Xbox One you’ll also want to reboot your console to see if that helps.

How to Fix Acadian Ideals Quest Problem (Far Harbor)

If you run into trouble when trying to complete the Acadian Ideals and optional objective “Help Chase” you might need to reload a prior save.

Bethesda says that killing an NPC called Brooks before you arrived in Acadia could make completing this quest difficult.

It notes that there is still a way through the quest but the best solution might just be to reload a game where Brooks is still alive.

How to Fix Best Left Forgotten Quest Problem (Far Harbor)

If you run into trouble trying to complete the Best Left Forgotten quest in Far Harbor, know that you’re not alone.

Bethesda is looking into the problem which means a permanent fix could be on the way. In the meantime, the developer is telling gamers to restart the console/PC to see if that fixes the issue.

How to Recover a Fallout 4 Season Pass Code

If your Fallout 4 Season Pass didn’t come with a key or a code to input, you’ll need to get in contact with the retailer, not Bethesda. Bethesda says that it cannot help Fallout 4 owners with Season Pass replacement codes.

How to Fix Fallout 4 Input Problems

One of the more common Fallout 4 problems is also one of the easiest to fix.

Some PC Fallout 4 users are saying that they’re unable to use their mouse once the main menu pops up. There is no apparent way to click to enter the game and the keyboard won’t do anything to help get past the menu screen.

Fallout-4

To fix this problem, unplug any controllers you have plugged in. This should fix this Fallout 4 issue immediately. If it doesn’t try restarting your computer.

If you don’t want to have to unplug your controller every time you fire up Fallout 4, you can make some changes. Fallout 4 users have come up with an easy fix and it’s as follows:

  • Go to Fallout4Prefs.ini (located in C:\Users\[name]\Documents\My Games\Fallout4\), then scroll down to bGamepadEnable=1.
  • Change it to bGamepadEnable=0

How to Fix Fallout 4 Launch Issues

PC users have been reporting an issue where the game fails to launch after clicking start. Many users are seeing a black screen. Fortunately, there are a number of fixes that could help alleviate these launch problems.

If you see a black screen, the first thing you’ll want to do is ensure that your PC graphics drivers are up to date. Head here for NVIDIA and here for AMD

Computers running two graphics cards have been known to cause this problem so if a driver update doesn’t help, try forcing your computer to recognize a primary GPU.

For instructions on how to do that for an NVIDIA driver, head here. For AMD drivers, head here. (We aren’t listing detailed instructions here because they can change based on card and version.)

Fallout-4-problems-3

Anti-virus software has also been known to cause launch issues and black screen problems so we recommend adding Fallout 4 as an exception or disabling your anti-virus software when you’re playing the game.

A user on Bethesda’s Fallout 4 forums found another potential workaround. Here are the instructions that fixed this launch issue:

I added these 2 .dll into the Fallout 4 and system32 folder and now it launches with no problem!!

x3daudio1_7.dll

xinput1_3.dll

xinput1_3.dll was running in x86 and I replaced it with the x64 (64 bit) and now it works.

Try using Dependency Walker64bit (google it and download it from download.cnet) and open Fallout4.exe, check all the .dll and make sure they are all running x64.

This worked for them, and several others, so it’s worth a shot if your game fails to launch up when you click play.

How to Fix Failed to Start Game Error (Steam)

If Steam spits out an “Failed to start game (unknown error)” there are a few fixes to try before throwing your computer out a window.

One fix that’s worked for a lot of people is running Fallout 4 as an admin. Here is how to run the game as an administrator:

  • First, right click the game in your Steam Library.
  • Next head to Properties and locate the Local Files tab.
  • Click Browse Local Files.
  • Locate the Fallout 4 application on your computer.
  • Right click it and head into Properties.
  • Select the Compatibility tab and check off the Run this program as an administrator box.
  • Click Apply and try running the game.

If this doesn’t work, try running Steam as an Admin:

  1. Go to your Steam install folder which should be located in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam).
  2. Right click on the Steam application.
  3. Use the steps above to set it to Run as Administrator.
  4. Restart Steam and play the game.

We’ve also heard that Verifying the Integrity of the GameCache is a potential fix for this issue. Here’s how to do that in Steam:

  1. Right click the game in your Steam Library.
  2. Head into Properties and go to the Local Files tab.
  3. Click the Verify Integrity of Game Cache option.

How to Fix Fallout 4 Mods After A Patch

Bethesda’s Fallout 4 patches apparently break some PC mods. Fortunately, there is an easy way to fix your mods after the patch.

Reddit users have found a way to get around the Fallout 4 mod problems and it requires just a little bit of work.

1) First, Open Nexus Mod Manager.

2) Next, launch the game and wait in the launcher before starting the game.

3) Renable the mods using Nexus Mod Manager.

4) Click play.

You can enable your mods then set C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Fallout4\plugins.txt to readonly.

How to Fix Your Game After Using Console Commands

If you decide to use console commands to manipulate your game and your game starts exhibiting problems after using said commands, you’ll want to revert back to a save you made before you started using them.

How to Fix Fallout 4 Blurred Vision Problem

Some gamers are running into a blurred vision problem. The bug tends to happen when the screen blurs after the character receives a concussion after taking head damage. We haven’t run into this issue ourselves but it’s evidently pretty prevalent.

Bethesda hasn’t confirmed a permanent fix for the problem but there are a few manual fixes to try if your game suddenly becomes blurry.

One remedy that we’ve come across involves taking head damage and using a stimpack to heal yourself up. To get this to work, you’ll need to position yourself in a way that you’ll take head damage and thus, a concussion. Once this happens use a stim and the bug might resolve itself.

If you’re on PC, you can use console commands. Hit the ~ (tilde) button and type in rimod 00094636 (this gets rid of the green blur) and rimod 002041B6 (to get rid of the white blur).

If none of those work, you can try a number of other methods. You can try resting in a bed or waiting in a chair, you can try using RadAway, or you can try going to the doctor. You can also try reverting back to an old save.

How to Get Unstuck from a Terminal

One of the more annoying Fallout 4 problems on PC is an issue where users are getting stuck in terminals. A fix arrived in Bethesda’s first Fallout 4 patch but gamers continue to complain about the issue. Here’s what to do if the patch doesn’t help.

First, we recommend saving before you hack a terminal. That way, if you do get stuck, you can just revert back to the old save.

Mod-3 10.39.45 AM

If you do get stuck, there are several things to try. Some users are saying that the SetPlayerAIDriven 0 console command helps. To use that, press ~ (tilde) on the keyboard and type in that command.

If you are using a monitor with a higher refresh rate than 60Hz, you’ll want to take a look at this list of fixes for the issue on Reddit and Bethesda. It features a couple of different solutions for monitors with high refresh rates including a remedy for monitors with G-SYNC enabled.

These fixes will also work if you get stuck on furniture.

How to Fix Settlement Attack Problem

We’ve started running into a settlement attack bug that’s extremely annoying and causes you to lose your entire population due to a quest failure. Here’s how it breaks down.

You receive a prompt that a settlement is under attack. In our case, Red Rocket Gas Station. You fast travel there, take out all of the enemies (in this case, synths) and the settlers thank you for showing up. Only, the miscellaneous quest doesn’t complete.

You wait a few hours or fast travel somewhere else and a prompt appears telling you that you failed to protect the settlement. Your population drops to zero and you’re now forced to rebuild. Sound familiar?

Fallout-4-Mod-1

If you notice that your settlement attack quest fails to complete, there are a couple of solutions to try. We spent over an hour trying everything from sleeping to waiting in a chair. Those don’t work.

On console, you’ll want to travel to a nearby settlement after you see the prompt appear. In our case, we reverted back to a save before the Red Rocket attack prompt and fast traveled to Sanctuary when the prompt popped up. Once we arrived, the quest completed.

When we got over to Red Rocket, instead of an army of synths, we found a single synth infiltrator. Dead, killed by her fellow settlers. This isn’t guaranteed to work for you but it’s worth a shot if your quest refuses to budge.

If you’re on PC, there’s a fix that should work almost 100% of the time. PC gamers report that the following console command fixes the issue:

  1. Open up the game’s console (use the ~ key).
  2. Find the dead synth posing as a settler and click on him or her.
  3. Type “resurrect” (without the quotes).
  4. Exit the console mode and it should be alive again. Kill it and the quest should complete.

The 1.3 patch should’ve fixed this issue but in case it didn’t, that’s how you fix it.

How to Fix Fallout 4 Sound Problems

If your sound suddenly cuts out (this has happened to us on numerous occasions, particularly when accessing terminals in the game), there are a few things to try.

One simple fix that’s worked for us is to minimize to the dash board. If you’re on a PC, try Alt-Tabbing to the desktop. If you’re on an Xbox One or PS4, minimize to the dashboard using the guide button.

On the PS4, that’s the button with the PlayStation symbol. On the Xbox, that’s the big glowing button in the center of the controller.

If that doesn’t work, try restarting the game. And if that still doesn’t work, PC users will want to try updating audio drivers to see if that irons out the issue.

How to Fix Missing Pip-Boy Problem

Some users are reporting a missing Pip-Boy problem. The issue can be seen in the screen shot from our game below. We’re running 1.02 on the Xbox One.

Fallout-4-bug

Users that’ve run into the problem are saying that a quick reload of the most recent save will fix the problem though there’s a chance that it could return in the future.

Another fix to try is putting the character into third person before going back into first person. This fix occasionally works for us.

How to Fix Pip Boy App Problems

If your Pip Boy app isn’t syncing up with your game, you’ll want to make sure that app is enabled in-game.

To do that, head into your game’s settings and select the Gameplay tab. Flip the “Pip-Boy App Enabled” option to On.

If your Pip Boy app displays a “Connection Status: Game Busy” error, note that this message occurs when connect your Pip-Boy app to a game that already has an app connected. Bethesda says that you “need to ensure the first app and device is disconnected before connecting your own.”

If your app is crashing or locking up on a regular basis, we recommend reinstalling the app to see if that helps dislodge the problem.

How to Recover Lost Fallout 4 Saves (Xbox One)

Some Xbox One owners are reporting lost Fallout 4 save files. This problem is still a problem after the 1.5 patch.

To recover a lost Fallout 4 save file, you’ll want to try a power cycle. Here is how to power cycle your Xbox One:

  • Press and hold the Xbox button on the front of the console for 10 seconds.
  • Unplug the console’s power cable and wait for 10 seconds.
  • Plug the power cable back in and turn the console back on by pressing the Xbox button again.

Once you complete this you’ll want to log into your Xbox Live account, open up Fallout 4 and allow it sync with the cloud. The saves should appear.

If they don’t:

How to Stop Fallout 4 Save Corruptions (Xbox One)

If you’ve played a ton of Fallout 4 on Xbox One there’s a chance you’ve encountered a corrupted save file. (We’ve had this happen several times.) Here, we want to show you how to prevent save corruption from happening again.

Bethesda recommends that you “wait a minute or two before closing the game, turning off the console, or attempting another save.”

It also recommends turning the Instant On feature on. To do that, head to this full length guide from Microsoft.

We recommend deleting some saves if you have a ton built up. This has helped us cut down on the number of corrupt save files.

How to Fix Fallout 4 Performance Problems

PC Fallout 4 users are complaining about various Fallout 4 graphic and resolution problems. These problems can be extremely difficult to fix because there are a ton of different hardware and software combinations out there.

If you aren’t getting the kind of graphical performance you’re expecting from your setup, there are a number of fixes and tweaks you’ll want to look into.

Fallout-4-6 10.37.24 AM

This thread on Bethesda’s Fallout 4 forum outlines a number of changes and tweaks to make if you want to improve your performance. Fixes range from disabling NVIDIA Streamer Service to tweaking your GPU via the control panel. There’s a lot there and it will help you fix and improve your Fallout 4 graphics.

If you’re dealing with resolution issues or if you want to add 21:9 (ultrawide) or 4:3 support for your game/monitor, you’ll want to head to this thread on Steam’s Fallout 4 forum. There are also a number of potential fixes in this Reddit thread. NVIDIA has also posted its own thoughts on GPU and PC performance.

How to Cast and Stream from Windows 10 (7)

If you’re dealing with issues after installing a new Windows 10 update, take a look at this fix outlined by a user on Reddit. They appear to work.

You can also try going back to an earlier build. This has apparently worked for a number of people running Windows 10.

How to Fix Vanishing Weapon Problem

People that are playing Fallout 4 in first person claim that their weapon will, at times, turn invisible for no apparent reason. Luckily, there is a really quick fix for this problem on Xbox One, PC and PS4.

If your weapon disappears, you’ll want to switch to another weapon and then switch back. The weapon that vanished should reappear. If it doesn’t, you’ll want to revert back to an older save. If that doesn’t work, restart your game or system.

How to Fix Fallout 4 FOV

Fallout 4’s field of view is locked at 70/80 which isn’t going to be ideal for many PC gamers. Fortunately, there’s a quick way to solve this problem.

  1. First, you’ll want to open both Fallout4.ini and Fallout4Prefs.ini
  2. In the [Display] section of both of these files, you’ll want to add the following lines:
    fDefaultWorldFOV=90
    fDefault1stPersonFOV=90
  3. 90 is the the default for most first person shooters but adjust accordingly.

If you need more background, take a look at this in depth solution to the problem.

How to Fix Fallout 4 Crashes & Freezes

Crashes and random lockups are among the most common Fallout 4 problems plaguing PC, Xbox One and PS4 users. There are a number of potential fixes for crashes and freezes, some more involved than others.

Fallout-4-3

If your game is frequently crashing, the first thing you’ll want to do is restart the game and/or system to see if that helps. If restarting your game or your system doesn’t help, you’ll need to take more desperate measures to get the problem ironed out.

First, you’ll want to ensure that you have the latest graphics drivers installed on your Windows PC. Head here for NVIDIA and here for AMD. AMD recently just released a new hotfix that tackles several Fallout 4 problems including a flickering compass.

If that doesn’t work, and you’re using an NVIDIA video card, try disabling NVIDIA’s Streamer Service. You’ll need your administrator password but if you’re playing on your computer, this shouldn’t be a problem.

You’ll also want to test out various graphics settings to make sure that you’re not burdening your resources. If your settings are too high, the game will crash more frequently. Head here to see if your PC meets the requirements.

If you are seeing a “Problem Event Name: BEX64” message every time your game crashes you’ll want to download the latest Visual C++ Distribution from Microsoft.

Xbox-One-8

If you’re noticing an uptick in crashes and you’re playing Fallout 4 on Xbox One, you can try this list of official fixes from Bethesda itself:

First, try restarting the game. If that doesn’t help, perform a power cycle:

  • Press and hold the Xbox button on the front of the console for 10 seconds.
  • Unplug the console’s power cable and wait for 10 seconds.
  • Plug the power cable back in and turn the console back on by pressing the Xbox button again.

If that doesn’t help, try reinstalling the game. If crashing continues, Bethesda recommends getting in touch with Microsoft.

If you are running into crashes on the PS4, Bethesda recommends restarting the game, power cycling the system or reinstalling.

How to Improve Frame Rate

If you’re suffering from frame rate issues, you can unlock the frame rate on the PC. To do this, head to this thread and follow the instructions.

If you’re suffering from frame rate issues on the PS4 or Xbox One, you’ll need to wait for a patch or try restarting your game.

Fallout-4-problems-2

If you’re willing to use Fallout 4 mods, you might want to try out this unofficial mod that supposedly helps cut down on frame rate issues.

How to Get Your Character Unstuck

If your character gets stuck or if your character starts moving slowly when he or she isn’t overburdened with loot, there are a couple of things to try.

The first thing to try is a restart of your game and/or system. One user claims that his character started moving extremely slow and that movement speed returned to normal after a quick restart.

Fallout-4-patch-1

If your character gets stuck in an elevator (or another object), like this guy’s character did, make sure you have the latest patch installed on your PS4, Xbox One or PC. There are also some other elaborate fixes including one for this issue that includes a spoiler.

Restarting the game seems to fix most of these speed/getting stuck problems but we’ll be on the lookout for more fixes in the future.

How to Get NPCs Unstuck

If you discover that an NPC is stuck or missing and you can’t (console owners) or don’t want to use console commands, here’s how to go about getting that fixed.

You’ll want to go explore another part of the wasteland, fast travel if you must, and then come back to where that NPC is located. We recommend waiting a day or two as this has worked for us.

How to Fix Fallout 4 Settings Not Saving

Some users are reporting an issue wherein their settings don’t save after saving them. This is an annoying problem but it looks like there’s a simple fix.

To fix this issue, go into the launcher from Steam and set the graphics how you want to them to be set. Exit that menu and go into GeForce Experience and change the resolution to whatever you want as a borderless window and then go back into Steam and fire up the game.

How to Fix Invisible Lockpicking Bug

Some users are running into an invisible lock pick bug where they cannot see the lock pick at all. Lock picking is key to Fallout 4 so this is a major problem.

Some users are reporting success with this fix:

  • Open Fallout4Prefs.ini in your documents (C:\Users\[name]\Documents\My Games\Fallout4\) and under [Display] change: Size W=XXXX iSize H=YYYY to iSize W=XXXX-1 iSize H=YYYY-
  • Their example: iSize W=1920 iSize H=1080 would be changed to iSize W=1919 iSize H= 1079.

After that, you’ll want to do the same with the Fallout4Prefs.ini that’s located where you installed Steam. You’ll find it in steamapps\common\Fallout 4\Fallout 4.

How to Fix Fallout 4 Installation Problems

We’re also hearing about Fallout 4 installation problems. Some users are reporting bugs while others are reporting slow downloads.

If you are running into slow download times, know that the speed depends on your internet connection. If you don’t have a fast Wi-Fi connection, it’s going to take awhile. This is a big game, over 25GB for PC, Xbox One and PC.

Fallout-4-8

If you do have a fast connection and the download isn’t being agreeable, pause the installation and then start it again. This is a known fix on PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Some Fallout 4 buyers are running into installation problems that are preventing them from installing the game. If this happens, update your console’s firmware and then try installing again.

How to Fix Fallout 4 Patch Installation Problems

Some users have been unable to download and install the latest Fallout 4 patch. This is a common problem on console and PC and it should be an easy one to fix.

First, try pausing the installation/download for a few seconds and then trying again to see if that jumpstarts it.

If it doesn’t, you’ll want to check your router/modem and make sure everything is working properly. If everything appears normal, try one of three things or all three if needed. Pause your download before taking these steps.

Fallout-4-patch-2

First, restart your router. Unplug it for a good minute then plug it back in to see if that helps get the installation moving again.

If that doesn’t help, try plugging an ethernet cable directly into your PC or console. Wireless connections can be finicky.

You can also try power cycling your console. Unplug your Xbox One or PS4, wait 30 seconds or so, and then plug it back.

How to Recover Your Copy of Fallout 3 for Xbox One

If you are having issues getting your free copy of Fallout 3 for Xbox One, there are a few fixes you can try.

First, you’ll want to head to Microsoft’s Xbox Live Payment & Billing and sign in. Click on Billing info and make sure that your billing country is correct and that it matches your physical location.

If it does and you still can’t redeem it, get in contact with Microsoft directly.

How to Fix Fallout 4 Mouse Lag Problems

A number of PC Fallout 4 users are complaining about in-game mouse lag problems. This is a common issue with PC games and there are a number of fixes that should help you improve your mouse’s response time.

Fallout 4 users have discovered several fixes for Fallout 4 mouse lag. First, according to one fix, you’ll want to make this change:

  • Go to C:\Users\yourusername\Documents\My Games\Fallout4. Open Fallout4Prefs.ini and then change the following parameters: iPresentInterval=1 to iPresentInterval=0

You’ll also want to change:

  • bForceIgnoreSmoothness=0 to bForceIgnoreSmoothness=1

This user also says that to be absolutely sure, you’ll want to change iPresentInterval in Fallout4.ini.

If you are using an NVIDIA graphics card and you’re noticing mouse lag in-game, here’s a quick fix that could fix your mouse lag:

  • Go to your Desktop, right click the Nvidia Logo at the lower Right of your Desktop. Choose “System Settings” or whatever it is in your Language. Now go to “3D Settings” and Add Fallout.exe to your Programs.

If you want to remove Mouse Acceleration, and some of you might, you’ll want to take a look at this guide. It will take you step-by-step through the process. Mouse Acceleration is on by default in all Bethesda games including Fallout 4.

If you can’t find your fix here, we’ve put together a list of resources that will help you find what you’re looking for. Bethesda’s Fallout 4 forums and this Reddit link are the first two places to go.

Fallout 4 is filled with tons of smaller, more isolated issues that are impacting Xbox One, PC and PS4 users and fixes for those are sometimes harder to find.

Remember to save your game as often as possible. Reverting back to an older save is a way to avert disaster.

189 PS4 & Xbox One Fallout 4 Mods You Should Try Right Now

keyNuker

Let's start with one of our favorite PC Fallout 4 mods that quickly made it over to the long list of Fallout 4 mods for console.

keyNuker creates a key ring in your inventory that hides keys and passwords. With it installed, your MISC tab in on your Pip-Boy is going to be a lot more manageable, particularly if you're deep into the game with tons and tons of items listed. 

The screenshot here shows you what the vanilla MISC tab looks like compared to the MISC tab with keyNuker installed. It's night and day.

This is one of our favorite Fallout 4 mods and one that should consider if you're tired of wasting time scrolling through hundreds (many of them worthless) of items.

    “Lockpicking is key to fallout 4” gold.

      No way Matt. If you’re not building a character that’s into lock picking or hacking, you need another way for gold.

      If you want gold, major amounts of gold, in each settlement you find, throw a wall up around it, get some defense build, and then it’s all about crops.

      Crops = Caps

      Do 1 settlement all corn, 1 tomatoes, 1 carrots. those are the 3 most used for soup. Your razor grass is used later game for deathclaw food so make sure to save those up as well.

      It’s super easy to make crops. sleep for a day and all the crops regrow. I have 3 farms and get about 3,000 caps in 20 mins from farming. It normally goes faster if I dont take the time to trade for junk to build up my settlements more.

      If you get tried of lock picking use cait she’s is great at it. And will open locks as high as your skill level. But you won’t get the XP points but save yourself effort. This update all took money from my workshop over 6000 caps gone

    The advice on fixing freezes and crahses would be useful but for one thing- when I right click on Fallout 4 in my Steam library the drop down box does not include a Settings option- sick of bethesda’s excuses and will be seeking compensation- your product doesn’t work and i want a full working product as per the terms of the contract that existed between us from the moment i purchased your faulty product.

        I have a 12 core machine with AMD 290x and x99 FTW MB – 32Gb of the fastest RAM the board can support and SSD all the way around.

        Mine freezes. If you are saying there are no bugs – when I’m playing other games without freezes – I would beg to differ.

        If people have to make pages like this to help people – then wtf crack are you smoking coming here saying no one has issues.

        Use google. There are issues far deeper than just having a kick ass computer.

          Have you by any chance found a solution to this yet? I’m also running AMD hardware, and I upgraded my CPU and GPU just so I could run this game at its highest capacity. It sucks that I ran into this bug though, I can barely get 2 seconds into the game before it either crashes and needs a manual reboot or it reboots the computer itself. I can always get past the title and first loading screens, but it cannot get any farther after loading the character and world.

          I had the latest drivers as instructed by every help forum, but interestingly enough, I actually got a few minutes into the game before it crashed by rolling back the gpu driver. I’m not sure if it was just luck at the moment though, so I’ll have to troubleshoot more.

          Also tried Bethesda customer service… but apparently they don’t actually have a customer service division (only got an automated message), so it looks like we’re on our own.

      If there isn’t a settings option in your drop down menu on Steam, this is a Steam issue, and not one Bethesda can fix. You will need to make sure you are running the latest version of Steam, and if you are still unable to get the option to appear then you will need to probably contact Valve.

    The Diamond City mission is stuck for me. Piper (after she talks to the guy on the intercom) won’t talk to me and keeps saying “A bit busy.” An autosave didn’t occur before this mission and I didn’t save beforehand. I’ve tried traveling, quitting the game and coming back. Nothing. I’m worried restarting this game is the only option. I’m not sure if a loss of all my progress is even worth it…

      Hey guys, I´ve found a quite rude solution!!! In front of the main gate of Diamond City there´s a truck. Blow it up. After doing this all the security and even Piper will start shooting at you (but the main door will open). Run away immediately and sleep 24 hours in any bed, come back the next day and Piper will be talking to the mayor as normal and you won´t be hostile to anyone.

      It worked for me and I hope it does for you to.

    “When freedom calls” bug Xbox (Fixed):
    You need to start mission FROM FIRST TIME (maybe you need to re-start the game)

    I’ll recomend you to not get the dog till you finish this mission.

    Go to the town and go trough till you get the armor, when you start the fight against the gang and the big monster kill everybody but the unique gang member who have name (sorry for the terminology im playing in spanish, and also i dont remember the name) kill this one the last, once you kill him you can keep on the mission ;)

    As for the freedom calls bug the reason it doesn’t complete is you have to go straight to the town building and do the mission without exploring the town. If you explore the town the death claw comes out and kills the Raiders that you need to kill and it messes up the completion. So as soon as you get power armour kill the raider on roof then jump down and kill Raiders before you kill the deathclaw

    I am playing on the PS4, and I have deleted the game and reinstalled it, and it keeps on stopping and it says the data file is corrupt and I cannot get past it! I have restarted and even tried to delete all of my old save files, and start a brand new character and it still brings up that its corrupt!

    I have fallout 4 for the ps4. I got the robot companion from the institute. After getting him I immediately went to the brotherhood to go do “spoils of war” I got on the vertibird with my institute partner. It starts the quest and ends my friendship with the institute which causes the robot to leave and go back to the castle. Now when I go there, he’s an enemy I can’t shoot and he just sits there shooting me forever. So now the castle is useless to me because he is always there shooting at me if I go. Anyone have a solution other than reloading because I would be losing like 15 hours of gameplay if I reload at this point.

    Enabling the mouse on the PC version does not require editing the Fallout4Prefs.ini. Open the game, go to Settings, go to Gameplay, turn Controller off. Done. You can do this with your controller and as soon as you exit the settings menu, your mouse will work without having to unplug or restart anything.

    I have the same issue my pip-boy has disappeared in game I cannot see it at all. The only way to get my hud inventory up is with power armor!

    I have tried restarting the game and it still does not work, I have tried going to a previous save and still did not work.

    Another fix for sudden slow movement when you are not overloaded to me it seems to be going into always walk never run mode, caps lock on but the caps lock isn’t on. I can still sprint but walk instead of running. So to fix it you enter the Pipboy, press Caps lock key, then cap lock key again, then exit pipboy. You should be running again.

This is so lame!!! Level 48 now (7 levels beyond when the problem started) and I certainly don’t want to restart my game.

      You can hold the E key on computer or the action key on console and then adjust the object you’re moving and not yourself, this includes height. On the computer, sometimes once I do this, it bugs out and I’ll have difficulty returning to the regular movement, to fix, I’ve been able to simply exit build mode.

      Not sure if this is what you mean. But the items not leveling when I built, especially the walls/fences drove me crazy at first. As it looked horrible. The PC has commands that you can use to fix these issues. In the XB1/PS4 the closest to a fix I see is the shack foundation under wood buildings. It gives you a concrete block that can sink into the ground and mostly levels stuff. The tall wooden platform in the miscellaneous stuff (also wood buildings) can also be adjusted to level stuff. It isn’t perfect, but my settlement looks a million times better using these two items. Especially near uneven surfaces.

      I love the building tools they put in the game. Though it needs lots of polish. And I would love a DLC that gives a lot more options for things to be used in building. I would also love to scrap all the buildings in a settlement. It’s annoying to have a settlement look like a mess even after you have built it up. And I would really like to see them have an icon on each settler in build mode, which shows you what they are assigned to. The whole green around them and the item/job they are working on, doesn’t work. Especially since they wander all over. I have people assigned to shops who literally seem to show up for 1 hour of the shops hours. It would be nice to also see more happiness creating stuff and diversity in these items.

      As it is now, you need like 16 shops to max out happiness. And when 3 or 4 settlers have to work farming. 2 don’t do anything and the rest wander. It is tough to find that one guy who isn’t assigned to that last shop.

      If they polish the building/settlement tools this will be a great addition to Fallout and Elder Scrolls.

    Fixes without restarting:

    Pipboy/gun disappears – Change your view. IE First person to third person and back again.

    Getting stuck in the hacking screen – I’ve bee able to fix this anytime its happened by alt-tabbing out and back in again. This has worked for several things that wouldn’t let me out by standard tab/e.

    Spontaneously disappearing resources from a settlement – As weird as it sounds, if you have beds, food, defense, or power disappearing randomly when you fast travel and only triggered by fast travel, check and see if you have any televisions. Then store or delete them.

    I don’t see a problem I was having earlier

    At red rock I planted some tata crops to comply with the objectives, but as I have read now in another thread apparently If these are planted really close together it interferes with the settlers crop harvesting animation and basically no crop is grown, not only that but you can’t interact with them at att and the worst part is even if you plant more crops even with loads of space NOTHING will grow in that location thereby making the set objective impossible now the only solution I can see is to load an earlier saved game before I had initiated the bug…

    This really needs to be fixed properly

    Over all Fallout 4 has been a fantastic experience for me on my Xb1. I am still playing my first character and trying to get every perk in the game. Though I didn’t read about great builds and did it the hard way ;) I do have 2 bugs that I can’t fix though.

    1. Kill some ghouls at Croup Manor (institute quest). I go there and there are dead ghouls bodies all around. But the ghouls for the quest never proc. I tried removing the defenses As I imagined they were killing the quest ghouls. I then cleared all the dead ghoul bodies. Still no luck. Always ghoul bodies there every time I go. I eventually realized the game is repopulating the same dead ghouls each time. No matter how many times I clean it up. I will try removing the walls I built, as one of the ghouls seems stuck in the floor/ceiling/outside the building. I have removed the walls and put them back. Maybe if I permanently remove them it won’t lock the dead body there? I even killed a bunch of named ghouls at the house near the docks that always spawns some fight. But the quest doesn’t seem to load properly at the manor. It tracks there, I run around the area, I follow the arrow, but then it disappears when I walk up to the manor. And there are never any ghouls to kill for the quest. Just the ones I killed the first time I was there and claimed the place. And they are always in the exact spot , I originally killed them.

    It is kind of annoying as I did the main quest (not knowing it would eliminate half the available repeatable quest), and now the minutemen and the institute are my only quest sources. And after the main quest is seems both factions make me wait to do the repeatable quest. Which makes gaining exp slow.

    2. My silver shroud armor seems to have disappeared. For the longest time it couldn’t be put away or removed from my inventory. Now that the later quest and upgrades are available, I can’t find the armor. The guy says I need my armor. It isn’t in my safe, where I put all the stuff I will need later. It’s not in my workbench. It’s not at any of the merchants I sell to (assuming you can store/sell after main aspect of quest). I always use the same merchants in case I mistakenly sell something I want. It shouldn’t of been able to accidentally be put in a safe/container you open in the field. I just can’t find it. It is a special item and as far as I know can’t be broken down at a work bench. So I have no idea where my Silver Shroud armor can be.

    In both instances the NPC’s who give the quest, have no way to reset/give me new quest items. I hope in the next patch Bethsaida puts a command for all consoles/computer, so that we can reset a quest. That way it restarts it and we can proceed from there.

    Thankfully for me I still enjoy the game. But these bugs can be irritating. Especially since the quest never leaves the log and constantly reminds me I am still not able to finish the quest.

    The invisible Pipboy seems to be a recreatable problem. If you are wearing any chameleon armour or using a stealth bioy or power armour that has a stealthboy in the torso then when crouched and in stealth the pipboy becomes unusable, either invisible or an exceptionally bright white screen. But this only happens for me when in stealth and invisible.

Now, this fixed the mouse lag. It plays beautifully, however, as a result when I try to lock pick the A & D keys which turn the locks are now insanely sensitive to the extent that it is impossible to lock pick. Please help! This must be because of the change I did to the ini files. Please help. I’m a PC novice. Thanks in advance.

    This game is absolutely screwed. I can’t get a controller to work, the mouse feels like it’s being dragged through water when I open the pip boy, it crashes randomly, and even though I’m using a pretty high spec gaming machine, in half the battles I fight, the whole thing goes into meltdown due to memory issues. Bethesda make literally millions out of this, and from what I can see, there are thousands of people out there spending tons of hours trawling the web looking for solutions to what are schoolboy basics. Not our job people. I want to be playing the game, not assing about trying to make the thing work.

    If Bethesda had any dignity they would have sorted these problems before launching. It’s not the job of paying customers to beta test the f******g game!!!

    for anyone getting an error along the lines of “AppID not found” when attempting to run the installer on the disk. note the number that starts most of the files on the disk is the AppID, if the AppID value in the ‘setup.ini’ file does not match this you should change the ‘AppID’ value in the ‘setup.ini’ file to match that number. NOTICE: you will have to copy all the files to your computer first before you can make any changes.

      worked to get rid of the error but it seems that later it may be better to change it back as steam seems to use the default value. As the disk is practically a activation key for steam it is likely better to install the game directly from steam(24GB) as there should be less risk of errors occurring than trying to use both the disk(5GB) and steam(19GB) though it means a bit more downloading.

    I lose my pip boy on screen after I exit power armor. The only thing that will bring it back is to load a previous point that it was working at. Sometimes this would be several save points earlier. I have lost a lot of time and effort because of it. Any idea why this would be happening? I can use it while in the armor, but once I exit… it’s gone. So I either have to use the armor all the time, or not at all.

    I got my game through steam, and as soon as I click play in the set-up menu, my entire computer starts glitching out and having the screen flashing black at a very rapid pace, and when I exit out of the game my screen brightness keeps fluctuating but not turning black, sometimes closing Fallout fixes the rest of my computer, but no matter what I do the actual game itself cannot be fixed. The mouse also lags a ton while I’m in the window, so combined with the screen problem it is impossible to even play the game. Someone please help me, I’m getting desperate.

But at the same time we cannot be killed by anything other than melee attacks. We both have beaten the game and since then we have encountered this problem. We’ve tried reloading saves, unplugging and restarting our Xbox Ones but and even starting over with new characters and yet as we progress in the game (as new characters) we still face this problem. If anyone knows what to do please HELP!

    Hi, all – I think I’ve unfortunately found a bug. I’m playing Far Harbor and noticed that a few Ruthless Trappers were impervious to my weapons. I can crack them over the heads with the butt of a rifle if necessary, multiple hits later he will finally die.

    Now I’m trying to defend Uncle Ken for Mitch. I’ve put up all sorts of defenses. Ada and Ken can shoot the trappers, as can the turrets, but my guns just don’t work on them. Again, I can bang each one of them with a rifle but it takes forever and so far the quest isn’t showing any signs of completion.

    I’m going to reload and move on to another quest for now but any reco to fix would be appreciated. I’m playing on PS4 and have reloaded the game and the console a few times.

    I am doing a quest for shank from world, securing Warwick homestead down by Quincy ruins. You’re supposed to go there and kill everyone and then set up your gangs flag and the mission completes. I’ve never had an issue w something like this until now. One of the name settlers at this settlement is underground so I can’t kill her and that means the mission can’t be completed. I can hear her talk and see where she is at under the ground because of the red arrow above her name but I have no idea what to do about this and I’ve went back to and spoke to shank in hopes he would let me pick a different spot to raid or anything like that but no. I’m stuck w this one right now. If anyone has any helps or tips about this problem because contact me at my email and send your soloution if you have come across this and know what to do already.

    I’m sorry I read a lot of this but couldn’t finish. How ever this last guy Brady’s question might be similar to the settlement protection quest problem from the original post. I have found on multiple ocasions an enemy will fall or pass through an object only to remain out of reach for completion. In every instance I would have to first shoot an unsnipered gun at different surfaces until they show up on the compass then try to pinpoint there location..there may be instances where this won’t work but every time I’ve tried they weren’t too far in the object. Shooting then will not work (because they are behind or inside an object. I have once got a missile to work, Often granades are not enough. But I have left a bunch of mines and traveled around the area for a bit went they exploded randomly some as quick as 5 mins but up to 2 hours so far. Sometimes placing the mines and waiting or sleeping helps. Again I don’t know if this has been said

    I’m on an xbox 1 and I just saved the nordhegan beach settlement and went around deconstructing stuff. I don’t know why but I try to save by hitting start and it shows the quick save and the save darkened out and I can’t use them. I try to use my pipboy but the b button doesn’t work BUT it’s not my controller cause I can still turn on the pipboy glow. I can’t use vats. Other wise the game is running normally with a good connection and no lag. I have mods but I do not know how they could be interfering with the game cause the only ones I have are 100% safe and mostly exploration mods (with exception to a jet pack mod and a .223 pistol mod). Please Help! My electric bill is going to go through the roof if I can save it. (The last save I did was 2 hours previous and I’m hoping there is an easy solution).

    “What to Do If Fallout 4 DLC Isn’t Showing Up”

    Tried it all, nothing worked.

    I had about a dozen mods installed, CBBE, A Touch of Green, Retextured Chems, Better Ammo Boxes… mainly aesthetic stuff. No weapon or armor mods. Then suddenly, I can no longer assign settlers to anything. Disabled all mods, rolled back to an early save… no joy.

    Started a completely new game with no mods and now my DLC won’t load. =/

    Now to do a complete clean install. *sigh* Then grind my way back to level 180 again.

    Somebody shoot me.
