Title: Fallout 76 Collector's Helmet Recall
Post by: Dessert Ranger on September 24, 2019, 11:21:01 PM
Hey guys,

Just wanted to spread the news here for whomever it may concern but it turns out that an exclusive Gamestop version of the T-51b PA helmet that was given as part of a promotion for FO76. Apparently there's a chance of mold growing in the nylon helmet liner.

BE ADVISED don't wear it if you do regularly and probably check the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (If you're an American) and it currently says you should ask for a refund due to this recall.

Stay Safe and Unwashed

Even the swag was full of fail.

I own the one with the Power Armour edition, that's supposedly safe.

I've worn it now, so I guess I'm basically screwed.

After days of shuffling around, I guess if you have the normal non painted version of the Power Armor helmet you should be good.

If you have like a red nuka cola painted one from Gamestop, then you may need to look into the issue.

It's the normal one, though they're identical, so I'm not sure how that works as it's supposedly the hood thing inside it that's moldy. Maybe it's a bad batch?

Yeah, I don't really know WHY one has mold and not the other, but a bad batch seems like a reasonable explanation.
