This Fallout 76 update in January fixes lever-action rifle reload animation, perk cards and a fix for duplicating robots. Bethesda also mentioned that the upcoming patch notes will come with developer notes to tell you why they made certain changes.

Our sights are set for future updates. In mid-January, we will be releasing another patch that contains many fixes, including fixes for the Lever-Action Rifle reload animation, some perk cards, and we’re dealing some crowd control at the Whitespring by implementing a fix for the robots duplicating on the resort grounds. Full patch notes will be available at a later date that covers all the fixes featured in this update.

Bethesda then also confirmed that they are working on a new PVP mode for Fallout 76. The PVP mode will come without any restrictions. This new PVP mode in Fallout 76 will roll out in early 2019.
