While Fallout 76 is notorious for its crappy launch in 2018, at this point, it may be one of the biggest comeback stories as Bethesda announces that the post-apocalyptic multiplayer game has hit a 13.5 million player milestone.

According to a dev blog that was released on Wednesday, Fallout 76 has enjoyed unprecedented success and growth in 2022, a year that also marks the Fallout franchise’s 25th anniversary.

“Fallout 76 has grown significantly over the past year,” the blog states, “with players worldwide experiencing all sort of happenings across Appalachia from travelling roadshows to extraterrestrial invasions! As the year ends, we wanted to reflect on those memorable events, updates and improvements that came to Fallout 76 in 2022. Before we begin, we want to first celebrate our community’s accomplishments using something we all enjoy: big numbers!”

So what are those big numbers? Aside from the 13.5M player count, Fallout 76 boasts over 5M Expedition Missions completed, over 9M Daily Ops completed, over 200 billion S.C.O.R.E. earned, and over 48 billion caps spent at player shops.

And Bethesda even went so far as to detail the top 3 items purchased from those player shops: Mr. Fuzzy Tokens, Steel Scrap, and Lead Scrap.

If you’re skeptical of Bethesda’s math, you can also check out the game’s Steam Charts which show an average of around 7,000 concurrent players throughout 2022, with a yearly peak of 17,506 in October of this year.

The dev blog goes on to describe other interesting stats, such as the most-killed creature (Feral Ghoul), the most-prepared food item (boiled water), and total number of nukes dropped (2.9M).

If you’re looking to get back into the game, you can check out the new expeditions like The Pitt, new events like Invaders from Beyond or Moonshine Jamboree, and the latest Season content.
