Fallout 76 Nuclear Material Farming

Fallout 76 Nuclear Material Farm

Nuclear Material in Fallout 76 is a key ingredient to SO many different end game crafting creations. When you’re wanting to upgrade your weapon and power armors to the more advanced modifications, typically Nuclear Material is an important and much needed ingredient to have on hand. On top of that, valuable explosives and CAMP structures require Nuclear Material to be crafted.

There are quite a number of ways to farm Nuclear Material, some of is acquired through breaking down specific game objects, but for the most part you can get it through killing Glowing Enemies. The objects in Fallout 76 that you can farm to break down into Nuclear Material are:

  • Biometric Scanners
  • Blast Radius Board Games
  • High-Powered Magnets
  • Ichor Sacs
  • Ignition Cores
  • Mini Nuke Beryllium Caps
  • Mini Nuke Detonator Shells
  • Mini Nuke Hemisphere Cores
  • Nuclear Waste (it’s an actual canister)
  • Radioactive Glands
  • Radscorpion Stingers
  • Vault-Tec Alarm Clocks
  • Volatile Material Boxes
  • Wakemaster Alarm Clocks

Although you can farm Nuclear Material through farming these objects (which, still keep an eye on them if you DO need Nuclear Material), I actually recommend farming Glowing Enemies instead. Nuclear Material farming typically means that you’re already at the end game and needing some of the higher up modifications on your gear. You’ve probably dropped a nuke or two, SO, instead of farming the actual objects which contain small amounts of Nuclear Material, you might as well farming full zones of Nuclear Glowing enemies! That way, you get both XP and Nuclear Material at the same time. But I’ll still include a couple locations below that are just object spawns if fighting glowing enemies isn’t really your cup of tea.

The best areas to farm Nuclear Material in Fallout 76 are:

  • NUKED Whitespring Resort (And Golf Club
    • This location will be SWARMED with glowing enemies, supplying you with a ton of Nuclear Material
  • Black Mountain Ordnance Works
    • All around the facilities you can come across Nuclear Waste
  • Nuke Silo’s (Alpha, Bravo, and Charlie)
    • Turrets typically have Biometric Scanners on them, meaning you’ll have to endure their ANNOYING noises, but you can farm a ton of Nuclear Material from them.
  • BlackWater Mine
    • Mole Miner’s here are TYPICALLY glowing, so you can farm a good amount of Nuclear Material from them
  • Flooded Trainyard
    • Spawns Glowing enemies, whether it’s snallygaster’s or Rad toad’s, they all give you Nuclear Material to farm
