Tips for finding legendaries in Fallout 76

  • Head to nuked areas

In addition to being fiercer and more resilient than their standard counterparts, legendary enemies are most commonly lurking in nuked locations. 

  • Hop servers

Adding to the challenge of finding legendary enemies in Fallout 76 is the fact that the game is played online, and other players may have already cleared out the area before you arrive. In these instances, hopping to another server may be your best bet.

  • Launch your own nuke

Launching nukes at locations like the Cranberry Bog can be effective. However, the process of launching a nuke is a lengthy one. So keep this as a last resort.
