With Daily Ops, we're aiming to bring more repeatable and challenging content to the game that you can jump into on a regular basis, which has been highly-requested by some of our more experienced players.Inside the Vault; September 11, 2020

Daily Ops are a gameplay feature in Fallout 76, introduced in the One Wasteland For All update. Using the game's instancing technology, Daily Ops aim to provide challenging, randomized and repeatable dungeon-clearing missions for experienced players. Daily Ops rotate every day at 1:00pm EST.

Details

FO76 itv dailyops theburrows.png

Daily Ops take place in an instanced dungeon, randomized each day. They can be completed solo or with teammates in groups of up to four. If the mission is successfully completed, the participants will be rewarded according to their completion time. The operation is repeatable, though certain rewards may only be available once per day.

The objectives, locations, enemies and their mutations are randomized each day. Enemy mutations are powerful effects, exclusive to hostiles in Daily Ops, which have a significant impact on gameplay. Some mutations cause enemies to always detect sneaking players, while others grant healing abilities.

The narrative of Daily Ops is light on the details but heavy on the action. Players complete various jobs for Vernon Dodge, a member of Appalachia's original Brotherhood of Steel, while he chats over a radio. Although Daily Ops are introduced into the plot during the quest Breaking Radio Silence, it is not a requirement in order to join in on the fun.

Rewards

Op Report

Daily Ops will provide greater rewards if they are quickly completed, detailed in the after-action report. There are three tiers based on completion time, each offering its own pool of rewards.

  • Initiate (16 minutes or less)
  • Paladin (12 minutes or less)
  • Elder (8 minutes or less)

Note that attaining a higher tier will reward items from lists of all previous tiers, provided those tiers weren't already earned. For example, earning "Elder" rank on the first Op of that day will reward all 3 pools - Initiate, Paladin, and Elder. The rare Daily Ops item[1] rewards may only be obtained once each per day.

Note: Items marked with * may only be received if that plan has not already been learned.

Variables

Resilient super mutants at Vault 94

Every aspect of Daily Ops is randomized to provide unique, dynamic experience. One day, players may be hunting down exploding Mothman cultists with armor penetrating attacks in order to deactivate signal interceptors around the Burrows. The next day may require players to set up uplinks around Watoga High School and survive a constant stream of fast-moving Scorched with automatic detection.

The upcoming second expansion will bring the total number of possible combinations to 980 for regular Daily Ops, and will introduce Double Mutation Weekends which offer 1,120 combinations.

Bugs

  • Icon pc.png Icon xboxone.png Icon ps4.png The follow ammunition will not drop, even if the player is holding a weapon that uses it: Alien blaster round, camera film, flares, mini nukes, missiles, paddle ball string and Syringer ammo.[verified]
  • Icon pc.png Icon xboxone.png Icon ps4.png Enemies with Active Camouflage may occasionally attack while stealthed, or may decloak while reloading or not attacking.[verified]

    • Trampling with the Pain Train perk[verified]
    • Throwing weapons - throwing knife, meat cleaver, tomahawk and Sheepsquatch shard[verified]
    • Minigun shredder (unreliable) - if the enemy is being hit before their HP reaches 1, they will be killed as expected. If they are not hit by the shredder until after they reach 1 HP and begin glowing, they will not be killed by the shredder.[verified]
    • Even when the Resilient modifier is in effect, it is still possible to kill super mutant suiciders with ranged attacks.[verified]
