The Fallout 76 Brotherhood of Steel faction is slightly different to the one seen in previous iterations of Fallout. This isn’t because it holds a different sentiment, though. The difference lies in the joining procedure. While mainline Fallout games have had you prove yourself as loyal member to the Brotherhood of Steel in order to ascend through the ranks, Fallout 76‘s Brotherhood of Steel is designed to rely on the players, testifying to the game’s multiplayer-only nature. Here’s how to join the Brotherhood of Steel in Fallout 76, which seems to be an entirely fan-derived enterprise.
How to Join the Fallout 76 Brotherhood of Steel
The Fallout 76 Brotherhood of Steel has an official Brotherhood of Steel recruitment page, which is being facilitated by Bethesda’s forums. Its full welcoming message reads as follows:
Attention Dwellers of Vault 76. We are a newly created aspiring faction of the
Brotherhood of Steel seeking new recruits. As you enter the wasteland of West Virginia,
the Brotherhood of Steel welcomes you.
The proclamation goes on:
As the new Elder of the Brotherhood of Steel here in West Virginia, we are following Roger Maxson’s lead in stopping the human FEV experimentations and we need your help curing this new irradiated land from the mutations caused by the folly of man, while spreading the word of the Brotherhood.
Those who have played Fallout 4 may notice that the name Maxson sounds familiar…
After evaluation and background. Those who want to play the game with like minded players in saving this treacherous Fallout on the PC/Xbox/PlayStation, your recruitment papers are ready. Join now with a heart of steel!
The message also links to the official Brotherhood of Steel Discord channel, so members can arrange when they go on in order to represent their faction. The Brotherhood of Steel will be on all platforms, so if cross-play ever becomes a thing, those against the Brotherhood may find themselves in a precarious situation!
