Fallout 76 random encounters

From The Vault - Fallout Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
This page lists all random encounters in Fallout 76.
  • For random encounters in other Fallout games, please see "Random encounter".
  • For an overview of Fallout 76 content, please refer to "Fallout 76".


Random encounters return in Fallout 76 and work much the same as in Fallout 4. Each random encounter has a specific type and it can occur in one of the locations set up for that kind of random encounter (see map below for detailed locations).

Assault encounters

Travel encounters

Travel encounters can be the most difficult to happen upon: They are triggered when the player enters the cell where the trigger is located and spawns characters that travel between these markers. Typically, they travel along roads, rather than overland.
