'Fallout 76' Power Armor Locations - Spawns For Beginners to Find It

Fallout 76 has dozens of Power Armor locations to find, but getting a set may be a chore when you're first starting out. In this guide, we'll discuss how Power Armor benefits your character and where you can find it.

The Basics of Power Armor

Unlike a traditional Fallout game, in which Power Armor spawns at specific spots, the multiplayer trappings of Fallout 76 make acquiring it far more difficult. Since many other players are traversing the open world along with you, it's very possible Power Armor won't be at all or any of these mentioned locations. We'll do our best to add more spawn locations as we find them, but this list is not a totally exhaustive one.

If you don't find the armor in any of these spots, you can always recycle the spawns by exiting the server you're on and entering a new one. Just make sure the player names are different, because otherwise you'll find yourself in the same mess.

Despite that very critical difference, Power Armor has many of the same benefits you'd expect.

  • Damage resilience raised to 60
  • Strength increases by 10 points
  • Each point also grants five Carry Weight and plus one to Melee Damage.
  • Only has a carry weight of 10, so it won't bulk up your inventory.

The good news: since Power Armor is harder to get, Power Cores last longer than in past games. Bear in mind, if you're just getting started, that you'll need to remove the armor from its Power Armor Frame to use it. Once you have the armor it's yours to keep whenever you want it.
