All Bethesda Game Studios games have "cheat room" or small slices of the world bounded by the main game that contains every element of the game. These areas are a bit like the space between the worlds, a Twilight Zone of goods, equipment and contents that have failed to reach the final game. They exist for developers to test various scenarios and ensure that objects act as they should. Fallout 76 has such an area and is accessible to players.
Remember the console commands "coc qasmoke" and "coc testqaitems" in Fallout 3 and Fallout 4 that gave you access to a special cheat area? Fallout 76 could be a live game but it's not that different from its predecessors: it also has a quality control zone, but it's not accessible from console commands. Players have found a way to enter the area and have found all sorts of surprises, including a human NPC called Wooby, as well as every object in the game.
Accessing essentially makes you a god and removes the need to keep playing off the level. Here you can find everything from the weakest tube guns to the most powerful weapons and tools, complete with upgraded armor skins. The recipes and plans have all their containers, and watching them shows how effectively Fallout 76 is fragmented and macabre.
These areas, which are used for quality assurance tests, are good for offline games. But being able to freely access the containers with all consumables, fabrication material, weapons and armor in the game essentially breaks the engagement mechanisms based on Fallout 76 grids. The idea is to let the players play the most as long as possible so that they can possibly spend money in the microtranslation shop [Atomic Shop] .
Predictably enough, Bethesda is taking action against anyone accessing the area.
Sources say Eurogamer that players entering the AQ zone have automatically suspended their accounts. The characters of the players who enter are "corrupt" and therefore have to contact Bethesda and explain themselves, essentially informing the developers with detailed information on how they have accessed the area.
What is more interesting here is the unpublished content. This means that the QA room is live and things inside will change over time, just like Fallout 76 as a whole. So more objects, equipment and items will be added to the area to be tested before being distributed in official patches and upgrades, which means that repeated access could give you a lot of clues about what's going to happen for the game.
I am mostly fascinated by Wooby, the human NPC. In my review of Fallout 76 I repeatedly stated that the lack of human NPCs in the game was a huge downfall, and it seems that developers can have a change of heart at some point and add more characters to the world. [1
