You may remember the scandal that was the Collector’s Edition of the game, where a promised canvas bag, turned out to be a cheap nylon bag, which Bethesda has promised to replace. Now, the company seems to have suffered another misstep with the leather Fallout 76 jacket. The bright blue and metallic gold, leather Fallout 76 jacket is priced at $276 (about R3 800).

Twitter didn’t think that the Fallout 76 jacket was Bethesda’s best work. Most of the complaints are about the high price versus the cheap appearance of the jacket. Also, the jacket doesn’t seem to be especially well-fitting nor very fashionable. So, of course, people were going to poke fun at it.
Here are some of the most hilarious responses on Twitter to the new jacket from Bethesda.
Like, let’s be real. Did yall really think you would get any form of positive response after the bag incident? 😂

Some of the features on the Fallout 76 jacket, which Bethesda hopes will be enough to justify its premium price tag, are:
- Original custom neck label issued from the vault;
- Black leather 76 patch on front;
- Metallic gold 76 appliqué on the back;
- Asymmetrical back seam, metallic gold piecing, and bicep arm pads all inspired by the Vault Suit;
- Metallic gold hardware including a custom bolt zipper pull;
- Adjustable cuffs for the wrists;
- Lined in silky, shiny taffeta fabric; and
- Comes packaged inside a Fallout 76 garment bag.
