Fallout 76 is a game where every material you gather matters and is needed to craft items to survive. The wastelands of Appalachia are not a kind place and you will need all the help you can get. One of the more difficult-to-find materials is rubber. Rubber is required if you want to build high-quality armor and armor mods. It is also needed for a good number of camp items. This guide will show you where you can find rubber in Fallout 76.

How to get rubber in Fallout 76

Like other materials in the game, you can get rubber by scraping objects that you find scattered about the wastelands of Appalachia. While other crafting components like steel are more common, you can find rubber in a fair number of places. You will want to gather this material especially if you plan on crafting a lot of armor. Most armor pieces require rubber to craft them as well as ballistic fiber.

If you want to get a large quantity of rubber, you will need to visit a few locations around the map. Keep in mind that this works better if you are on a private server so that other players can’t beat you to the items. Search the following areas to get rubber:

  • Blackwater Mine – Area is filled with Mole Miners that you can get Mine Suit Breathers and Mine Suit Filters from.
