Still, it will take more than a year in order for Fallout 76 to support mods and that's something that will definitely put off a number of players. Atoms are also earned in-game by completing tasks. Here is Hines' explanation about the currency. You get them as little rewards leaving the Vault or the first time you kill a creature or the first time you pick fruits or vegetables from somewhere. It's a little challenge reward.

Atoms is the other currency in Fallout 76, but unlike bottle caps, it's the one you'll be able to buy using real money.

The Philippine Stock Exchange Index fell 27.38 points, or 0.4 percent, to 7,050.82 on a value turnover of almost P4 billion. It claimed a unit of the People's Liberation Army was involved in the operation that looked to steal tech secrets.

Hines later then goes on to reveal the type of stuff that Atoms can be used to purchase saying, "Atoms are used in our shop to buy cosmetics things".

Being stuck with your decisions does make some sense for an online connected world, since a big part of the game will be choices and consequences as they relate to your interactions with other players. While entering other vaults won't be an option at the time of Fallout 76's launch this November, the team gave a broad reasoning for the exclusion. You'll be persistent too, as Bethesda marketing VP Pete Hines has confirmed that once you assign your SPECIAL points, you can't respect them. These links leave Siliconera.
