A Very Passive-Aggressive Fallout 76 Fan Mailed Bobby Pins To Todd Howard

Fallout 76 had a very rocky release and it had a plethora of bugs. One of the things players were annoyed with was the weight limit and weight of certain items. Specifically the weight of bobby pins, which you usually have a couple of hundred, since you need them for lockpicking. With the base weight of 0.1 pounds, a large stash would end up being heavier than armor.

Todd Howard remembers this pretty well and he shared a story about it during the Fallout 76 panel. A rather annoyed fan sent Todd a box of bobby pins and a note just saying “Weigh these”.

“Some people send letters; some of those are very creative, I got a box of bobby pins the other week that said, ‘Weigh these.’ Whoever sent that, that was the most creative letter I got.”

This fan can feel proud of his involvement in getting the weight of bobby pins down to 0.001 pounds.
