Since weapons and armour can break, you’ll occasionally need to repair them. This can be done at any workbenches in Appalachia, either at your CAMP or in other locations. If a piece of equipment should become broken, it won’t disappear from your inventory, but you won’t be able to equip Fallout 76 Caps. More on those in our Fallout 76 CAMP guide.
One of the weirdest things I discovered while playing was that even though some weapons are exactly the same in terms of their mod equips, level of weapon, and overall rating; their maximum condition will vary drastically from weapon to weapon. So just because you have two guns that otherwise are exactly the same, flicking between one and the other will reveal that one has better condition potential, making it the easier choice to scrap the other and improve the better weapon.
Finally, regarding those coveted Power Armour frames, more on those in our Fallout 76 Power Armor locations guide, you can find them often next to Power Armour Stations. Should you come across one, if you transfer armour plates that you are unable to equip into your inventory, you can enter the frame and lock its ownership to you. After this, you can exit the frame and put it into your inventory, or allow it to be transferred automatically to your inventory after a short amount of time.
Much like all the other Fallout games, you can allocate points to one of the SPECIAL stats upon levelling up, but you’ll also be able to choose a Perk Card. There’s usually a new type of card per SPECIAL rank, though this is not always the case. This card doesn’t have to be from the stat you just increased Buy Fallout 76 Bottle Caps, so you can take a Perk Card specialising in one-handed weapon damage, even though you just increased Charisma. They are filtered by category for easy navigation.
