West Virginia, naked monster, take me home.
As reported by Polygon, this issue seems to impact players using all versions of the game. Reports indicate that the Glitch can occur when either equipping or storing power armor, randomly causing the player’s arms and legs to grow and become disfigured. Most report they are simply left with only their underwear in shame, though for some the glitch renders their character immobile. The bug appears to have been around since the earlier B.E.T.A. tests.
@Fallout I found a glitch involving powerarmor. when you get in if your being attack the power armor doesn’t exist, you can’t get out of it, it uses fusion cores, and you look like this. pic.twitter.com/hGHlczZDm7

Though some reports indicate that the issue is resolved after repeatedly respawning, others haven’t been able to shake the glitch. Similar power armor-related glitches have been occurring for players as well, typically involving multiple suits getting deleted.
@Fallout so I just had a glitch when I had my 3 power armor suits out in my camp and when I tried to get into one, the animation froze and I couldn’t move. No buttons on my controller worked except for the map button so I had to quit and reload. I lost all my power armor.

@Fallout Can you please explain to me why my power armor frames stacked in my inventory, and when i placed them down it proceeded to delete my full suit of t45 power armor? Thanks

To see what the Power Armor’s helmet is supposed to look like, check out our unboxing of the Fallout 76 Power Armor T-51 Helmet. This version of the game has been going in and out of stock at Amazon over the last week.
