When Fallout 76 got a Survival Mode earlier this year it offered an alternative for players wanting a little more PvP aggression in their lives, as they could attack and kill any other players, albeit with tighter restrictions on other elements like spawning and fast travel. This also came with a feature that saw the top three players on the leaderboard highlighted on the map, effectively making them a target for other players to go after.
That won't be the case anymore though, as Bethesda has revealed in the patch notes for yesterday's hotfix that those in the top three on the scoreboards won't be highlighted on the map any more, although the leaderboard itself will remain in place to check stats and rankings.
As for combat, Survival Mode PvP damage bonus multipliers have been removed so base weapon damage matches closer with Adventure Mode, and non-base-weapon damage bonuses have been reduced as well, creating "more balanced engagements that are less dependent on specific builds". Also, the maximum damage per shot that can be dealt by weapons in PVP has been reduced too.
