You may trust your NPC companions in Fallout 76: Wastelanders; because, honestly, what could an NPC do to you? And one who fights at your side! Only the wasteland is always good for surprises, even when the supposedly friendly NPCs started to think about the bodies of the players. Bethesda has now put an end to this. (Yes, it was a bug.)
In Fallout 76’s endgame, some weapons are almost priceless. So it's lucky that players can't lose them; after all, they spawn in the inventory again even after death. Except they are stolen – and they have been stolen, of all places from friendly NPCs who fought with you. Shame on you!
Of course, it wasn't the fault of the NPCs – poor, small, computer-controlled beings that they are – but the fault a bug that led them to steal items from the inventory of fallen players. The problem: Once it happened and the NPCs are also immortal, there was no way to get the weapons back. You have a great legendary weapon there, my friend!
The good news: Fortunately, Bethesda fixed the bug. But he will no doubt live on in the sacred halls of the most absurd bugs ever. Besides that, Fallout 76 got pretty good with Wastelanders:

In Fallout 76, the friendship ends when it comes to expensive, long-crafted and bolted-together weapons. But who could blame the new NPCs from the Wasterlanders update? They may sadistically abuse your corpses and steal your best weapons, but actually they only do what the wasteland has taught them: there is no room for grief, instead the leftovers are used in the best possible way.
What they may not know, after all, they are only NPCs: If you die in a fight, you can of course respawn in the world immediately and don't lose any items, actually. Uh. However, some stolen weapons have actually disappeared forever if they fall into the hands of an immortal NPC.
It's not nice, you Badlands NPCs. And in fact it is also a bug, who is currently driving some fans of the game half mad, especially in the endgame, some powerful weapons are no longer easily replaceable.
In the official Fallout 76 Reddit Forum meanwhile Bethesda has reported, and wants to examine the bug in the near future and – hopefully – fix it. Until then, you should keep a close eye on your NPC companions if you go on missions with them. Or you can leave your best weapons with ammunition in the camp, just in case.
Gun greed is written on some people's faces:
Fallout 76 is currently available for 39.99 euros in the PS Storeif you're looking for a new Fallout world to roam with friends or alone. The otherwise highly acclaimed Fallout 76 update Wastelanders has been online for a few days and brings for the first time Companions, Romances and even two new factions into the game that you can join. Some rumors that it has now become a real Fallout – and I would agree, because despite many mistakes on the part of Bethesda, Fallout 76 is doing a hell of a lot now.
