Fallout 76 Guide: How to Get Power Armor

How and where to find Power Armor in Fallout 76

by Kyle Hanson


There are few things in gaming as iconic as Fallout’s Power Armor. These mechanical suits have typically been associated with the Brotherhood of Steel faction within the franchise’s fictional universe. However, the fantastically designed suit of armor is so integral to the series that it’s appearance is a given, no matter the setting of the game. This is why we’ll certainly be seeing a lot of Power Armor in Fallout 76, Brotherhood of Steel presence or not. And with players already diving head first into the beta, many are wondering where to get these precious pieces of equipment. So, here’s an ever-evolving guide for how to get Power Armor in Fallout 76.

It’s anticipated that players will receive Power Armor in a few different ways, with many speculating that it can be crafted, or that players will receive a set during the game’s main quest. As our access is still limited (watch for updates once the game fully releases), there’s only so much we can say about how to get Power Armor in Fallout 76 so far.

Thankfully, even if you’re intended to receive this powerful suit later in the game, there’s already a few sets out in the wild to collect. All players need to do is survive the journey there and grab the precious Power Armor. Here’s all the locations we know about so far…

Aaronholdt Homestead
Charleston Fire Department
Eastern Regional Penitentiary
Grafton Dam
Kanawha Nuka-Cola Plant
Morgantown Warehouse
Morgantown Trainyard
Moundsville Penitentiary
Point Pleasant

A full set of Power Armor can be found in each of these locations. Explore them thoroughly and you’ll find them pretty easily. No quests are necessary, so take them or leave them as you see fit. Morgantown Warehouse is one of the easiest sets to grab, as it’s just sitting in an abandoned warehouse on the side of the road.
