Bethesda has banned a group of Fallout 76 players for life after a shocking in-game homophobic attack.
The following contains language some may find offensive.
The move relates to an incident in which a group of Fallout 76 players targeted and harassed another group of players, saying over the proximity chat: “we have come to eliminate all gays.”
Fallout 76 employs a proximity-based chat system which means, by default, you can speak to and hear other players when you’re near them. This is by design – Fallout 76 is a multiplayer-only game that is meant to spark interesting player interaction.
The group of high-level players proceeded to follow and kill the other group of players over a period of about 10 minutes. Their ringleader, who goes by the username NathanTheHicc, is heard saying “queer down” and “decontaminate the aids”.
One of the victims, AJ from Chicago, took to Twitter to publicise the incident with disturbing video footage that has been viewed over 16,000 times.
