Within the expansive world of Fallout 76, players can immerse themselves in over 40 sides, secondary, and miscellaneous quests, offering an enduring gaming experience. However, specific side quests cause players to encounter roadblocks and obstacles, impeding their progress in the main story. As a result, players feel frustrated and stuck in the game without any advancement.
When players encounter obstacles presented by particular side quests in the game, they may wish to abandon them and pursue different pursuits. The good news is that Fallout 76 provides a simple and effective option for players to cancel side quests without facing any significant consequences. This feature empowers players to avoid becoming stuck or overwhelmed by challenging quests and enables them to confidently and efficiently through the game without feeling discouraged or defeated.
Players can now follow a simple procedure to cancel a quest in Fallout 76. Firstly, they need to press the Menu button and navigate to the Journal section of the game. Then, they can locate the specific side quest they wish to abandon and choose the “Abandon the Quest” option. This cancellation button is located in the quest options, which can be accessed by pressing the Y button on Xbox or the Triangle button on PlayStation. Following these steps, players can quickly and easily cancel unwanted quests, enabling them to progress through the game without any hindrances or frustrations.

Notably, the option to abandon quests only applies to side missions and miscellaneous tasks, and players must stay on the main quests. To restart an abandoned quest, players must repeat the initial steps that initiated the search. For example, if an NPC provides the investigation, players must speak with them again. Other than that, if the quest appeared at a specific location, players must revisit that area to reactivate the search. Following these simple steps, players can effortlessly restart any abandoned investigations and continue their progress through the game.
To view all active quests in Fallout 76, players can use the Pip-Boy feature, which displays both the primary and side quests currently underway. Players can access the Pip-Boy by pressing the B button (or Circle on PlayStation), which will bring up the menu. From there, players can navigate to the Data tab and scroll down to the Main or Side menu to select specific missions.
It is important to note that if players click on a mission in either of these sections, it will be removed from the game’s Heads-Up Display (HUD). However, this does not indicate that the quest has been abandoned. Instead, players can reactivate the search by returning to the Pip-Boy menu and selecting it again from the relevant menu. This method allows players to easily keep track of their active quests and switch between them as needed, allowing for a more streamlined and efficient gaming experience.
In Fallout 76, quest progression bugs can be frustrating and hinder players from advancing in the game. These bugs have been introduced through various patches and have caused problems with completing certain quests. While the game does not offer an immediate solution to this issue, one workaround is to abandon any bugged or glitched missions.
By abandoning problematic missions, players can bypass any issues that may have been causing their quest progression to stall. However, it is essential to note that this approach only applies to side or secondary tasks, not main quests. However, this method may only work for some situations. Some players may need additional support or assistance from the game’s developers to resolve any persistent quest-related problems. While abandoning bugged or glitched missions can be a helpful strategy for some Fallout 76 players, there are more guaranteed solutions, and more complex issues may require further troubleshooting.
If Fallout 76 players are faced with a quest that is not progressing due to a glitch or bug, there is an alternate method that they can try. Firstly, players should save their current game state and log out of the server. After waiting approximately 15 minutes, players can log back into the game, resetting the game world. This approach can resolve issues with glitching missions without affecting the previously saved data or progress. This strategy benefits those who encounter persistent problems with quest progression that cannot be resolved by abandoning the quest. It offers a practical workaround that players can use to overcome quest bugs and continue with their gameplay.
