The Most Wanted event was added to Fallout 76 during the Nuka-World on Tour update and takes place in the Nuka-World on Tour section of the map in the Ash Heap region. The event location is the old west town portion of the Nuka-World area which consists of multiple old west-style buildings and a fake horse-drawn wagon in the center. Your goal during the event is to steal 600 Buckaroos from the townsfolk and deposit it in the getaway wagon.

Once the event starts, search the town for safes. These can appear in different sections of the builds and can also be held by the wooden cutouts resembling townsfolk. You will know if a safe can be stolen from thanks to the green light that appears above it. After stealing some Buckaroos, bring them to the getaway wagon and despot them. While you are searching for loot, you will also get attacked by Protectrons.
