Fusion cores are a constant necessity if you want to use power armor in Fallout 76. Finally, fusion cores power these heavy armors and make them function. Unfortunately, getting fusion cores isn’t very easy and often requires you to look around the map for people who sell fusion cores or power armor that already have fusion cores you can grab. Luckily there is an easier way.
Where to find fusion cores
Fusion Cores can be found in many different areas. For starters, you can find them in simple containers such as chests, safes, crates, and other items found throughout the Wasteland. The chances of them appearing in one of these containers are pretty slim. You’re more likely to find Fusion Cores in Power Armor Chassis, which can be found in various locations around the map. Other ways to find fusion cores are vendors, other players, and fusion core generators.

How to Farm Fusion Cores
If you want to farm Fusion Cores, it’s best to use the Fusion Core processors. You may be familiar with extractors that you can often find in workshops in Appalachia. Fusion Core processors work just like Extractors, but require much more power and produce Fusion Cores.
Fusion Core processors require 100 energy to function, so you’ll need to make sure you have enough scrap to build generators. There are also only three Fusion Core processors found on the map. These processors are located in the following locations:
- Power station Donnerberg
- Monongah Power Plant
- Poseidon Power Plant
These power plants can all be powered up by completing the relevant missions. If you decide to complete the missions to power them before claiming the workshop, you will have access to power boxes that give out 100 energy. This way you don’t have to use materials to build generators to power the Fusion Core processors. The processors create a Fusion Core every seven minutes. That means you can get three Fusion Cores every seven minutes if you own all three workshops and have the processors powered up.
