Unlike previous versions of the series, Fallout 76 is a fully online production. This means that while you're wandering around the world you'll find other players. They may be neutral for you and indifferently pass by your character, but it may happen that a player attacks you or offers you an option to start a co-op team. The latter, i.e. the teams in Fallout 76, have been described on this page of our guide.
How you can join a team of players?
Joining a team is very easy. You can be invited to join the team at any time by the group leader - then a message and a key combination will appear on the screen, which must be pressed to accept the invitation. If you join a team, a list of all group members will appear on the right hand side of the screen.
You can also become a team leader yourself and invite other players to join the team. Simply approach any player and select the "Invite to team" option. The selected player will receive an invitation and if they accept it, you will become the team leader. As a team leader, you can throw other players out of the team (and invite others to join you), as well as promote someone to the team leader.
What are the benefits of being in a team?
Of course, the cooperation in Fallout 76 has a number of benefits. The following list describes all the benefits of playing in the team:
- The team leader automatically shares some of his tasks to other members of the group. Every member of the team who helps the leader to carry out the mission receives rewards in the form of caps or equipment. The goals of the team leader's tasks are marked with a star.
- In the team you can share the profits. In the profit menu you can choose which cards will be made available to the members of the group - then they receive bonuses as if they were benefiting from the profit themselves. The profits to be made available must have a point value equal to or lower than your character's charisma.
- If a member of your team starts PvP mode (read more about it on the page "How does PvP work?" in our guide) with another player, the whole team automatically becomes an enemy of this player. What's more, if the person who attacked a member of your team is in a different group, then the two teams become hostile to each other.
- As a member of a team, you can teleport to the other members and the group leader for free.
