As you can imagine, this leads to all kinds of problems. Unscrupulous players could have advantages over other players, and the sources of Eurogamer have understood that some offer their virtual equipment on eBay for sale.
Bethesda is not happy. These sources reportedly reported that the developer automatically blocked accounts for anyone entering the developer room. At least one player claims to have received a message stating that his character was in a "corrupt and / or uncommon state" and warned that he had been banned until he described how he used the forbidden room entered. Third Party Markets Fallout 76 has also banned users from trading in devices.
The damage to everyday gamblers is not difficult, but not what Bethesda needed to rehabilitate Fallout 76 s image. It also raises the question: why should Bethesda include the room in the public version of the game instead of limiting it to a private server? While developers may have left unfinished content in games, they are usually either harmless (eg, incomplete areas) or difficult to exploit against others. You can not say that here.
