'Fallout 76' Team XP and How It Works, More on Bonuses

We're getting closer to the launch of Bethesda's Fallout 76, the game that brings the Wasteland online for the first time in the franchise's history. The spin-off title is bringing a lot of new features into the series and now we're learning a little more about bonuses and how Team XP works in the game.
