News | Fallout 76 now has wheelchairs as C.A.M.P. decoration

Bethesda added a wheelchair in Fallout 76 as a decoration for the C.A.M.P. after someone with a physical disability asked for it

Gamer Kelly asked the developer on Reddit if it was possible to get a wheelchair in Fallout 76, since she is also in a wheelchair in real life.

She emphasized that she does not mean that she actually wants to move around with a wheelchair in the game, but that she uses it as decoration in her C.A.M.P. would like to use. “I think a lot of other people would like that too, even if they create a hospital, for example.”

A few months after posting the message, the option to place a wheelchair as decoration was added to the game. “Thank you and excuse my tears,” said an emotional Leunen.
