Where to find Power Armor in Fallout 76: locations, types, & more

Fallout 76 Power ArmorBethesda

Power Armor in Fallout 76 offers unparalleled protection against the perils of the wasteland. Here’s every Fallout 76 Power Armor location.

Power Armor is always highly sought after in Fallout games and the same is true of Fallout 76. This bulky gear offers incredible protection from bullets and mutants, but it’s difficult to find and requires serious maintenance. In an online game like Fallout 76, having a working set of Power Armor can be a great way to gain an edge over players who are yet to find a full set.

The good news is Power Armor can be round relatively quickly in the game. However, you’re unlikely to find a completed set in one or even two places. Therefore, you’ll need to visit various locations in order to complete your collection. It’s also worth pointing out that there are several different types of Power Armor, so you’ll want to first complete your chosen set, then collect the rest.

Here’s where you’ll need to look.

What is Power Armor in Fallout 76?

Power Armor was used by the military and government before the bombs dropped in Fallout. In Fallout 76, the armor is scattered all over the world and is highly sought after by wasteland wanderers.

Brotherhood of Steel soldiers are often found wearing a full T-60 set as standard issue, and the lesser-seen, former villains, the Enclave are associated with the highly prized X-01 Power Armour.

There are also various other types found abandoned around the wasteland, and you can build a full set of each without joining either of the above organizations. First, you’ll need to equip a Power Armour chassis, then add parts to this as and when you find them.

The chassis alone only provides moderate protection, but once all the limb, torso, and helmet pieces have been added, you’ll be much more formidable in combat.

Power Armor typesBethesda
Power Armor has been modified by a range of different groups in Fallout.

Power Armor level requirements

While you can equip the Power Armor chassis at any level, you’ll need to reach certain points before you can equip most of the actual armor parts. Here’s a breakdown of at what level you can equip each Power Armor type:

  • Raider Power Armor – level 15+
  • T-45 Power Armor – level 25+
  • T-51 Power Armor – level 30+
  • T-60 Power Armor (Typically a Brotherhood of Steel set) – level 40+
  • X-01 Power Armor – (Typically an Enclave set) level 50+

All Fallout 76 Power Armor locations

Each chassis will usually have two or three bits of power armor attached, but you’ll never find a full set. Raider and T-Series armor are the most common when exploring the world.

Remember, Fallout 76 is an MMO so other players will also be looking for the armor. If you get to a location and find the Power Armor chassis is missing, it’s likely been picked up by another player. In that case, simply save and reload, or come back later. The armor will respawn eventually.

Here’s where you can find Power Armor chassis across the world in Fallout 76:

What’s the best Power Armor in Fallout 76?

The best Power Armor in Fallout 76 is a matter of opinion, especially when you consider your drip factor. However, from a stats point of view, the X-01 Power Armor is considered the best – and this is the case in most Fallout games, not just Fallout 76.

This is the armor of the shadowy Enclave, the villains of Fallout 3, and some of the earlier titles. While the Enclave also appears in Fallout 76, the path to obtaining their armor is different from every other armor set. Unlike the armor above, you’ll need to craft a X-01 set.

The terminal in The Whitespring Bunker contains the schematic for the armor. You’ll then be able to craft each individual piece at a power armor station. You’ll need to be at least level 40 to begin crafting this armor, and level 50 to craft the best X-01 gear.
