Vault-Tec Agricultural Research Center is a location in Fallout 76.

Background[edit | edit source]

A pre-War facility established to experiment with crop automation and fertilization, the Agricultural Center was one of the major landmarks in the small town of Flatwoods. The fleet of Mr Farmhands (customized Mr Handy robots) would automatically take care of crops, fertilizing them, planting seeds, and collecting the harvest with barely any need for human oversight. While the Great War put the facility offline, it was reactivated by McFadden and restored to operation - somewhat. McFadden was no robot technician and so didn't have a lot of ideas on how to manage the fleet beyond simply reactivating them with help from the Responders. He continued his work, but his lack of technical skill culminated in the Farmhands going rogue and Handy overseers turning the robots loose on anyone who breached the perimeter.[1]

Points of interest[edit | edit source]

  • The agricultural center is one of the first dungeons encountered by the player on their way through Appalachia, sitting just over the river from Flatwoods and straddling the road leading out into the green wasteland. While hangars that sit near Flatwoods offer some loot, the primary attraction is the main building, with the Mr Farmhands floating around it and attacking unwary travelers. These low-level robots are fairly easy to dispatch, but can overwhelm lower level players.
  • Inside, the facility opens first into the main foyer, with a Vault 76 cache on the counter and the first of the Overseer's holotapes. The building is in a state of disrepair and navigating it yields minor loot, with some plants growing in the abandoned cultivation labs. The most important locations are the offices at the top floor, which contain McFadden's journal and makeshift living space, a locked safe, and a locked room which contains a pre-placed laser pistol.
  • In the rear are the greenhouses with more plants to harvest and a lot of Mr Farmhands.
