Thrilling, true stories FOR RUGGED MEN!

— Tagline

Backwoodsman is a magazine in Fallout 76.

Background[edit | edit source]

Appearing once a month and available for a measly $35, the Backwoodsman was a sensationalist rag aimed at survivalists, running a variety of stories ranging from the barely plausible to completely bizarre. However, there are nuggets of wisdom hidden among the stories, especially once Appalachia became... Decidedly more bizarre on account of all the mutations.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Finding an issue of Backwoodsman will temporarily give you a unique bonus, like cheaper weapon crafting or increased healing from cooked food. All bonuses expire after 30 minutes.
