Where to find nuclear material in Fallout 76
You can last a long time in Fallout 76 without ever having to use nuclear materials. Unfortunately, if you’re someone who crafts a lot of endgame items, you’ll find yourself needing more and more of that radioactive material. Luckily, there are some items you can get this crafting ingredient from. Provided you know where to look.
What items contain core material?
You may feel that there are almost no items in the game that can be scrapped for nuclear materials, but there are actually quite a few of them. If you’re looking for nuclear material, make sure you mark it in-game so a mark will appear when you pick up an item that can be scrapped to obtain it. Look out for the following items that contain nuclear material:
- Biometric Scanner
- Blast Radius Board Game
- high performance magnet
- Ichor Sac
- ignition core
- nuclear waste
- Radioactive glands
- Radscorpion Stingers
- Vault-Tec alarm clock
- Volatile Materials box
- Wakemaster alarm clock
Each of these items contain nuclear material that can be harvested in your camp or at any workbench. You can also get core material from glowing enemies scattered around the world.

The best way to farm nuclear material
What’s big, made of metal, contains a bunch of radioactive materials, and made the world of Fallout the wasteland it is today? If you answered nuclear weapons, you would be correct. The best way to gather nuke material, outside of finding items, is by killing glowing enemies, and the best way to find glowing enemies is by nuking an area. When you get your hands on the codes to launch a nuclear bomb, aim for one of the following areas:
- Whitespring Resort
- Blackwater mine
- Location Alpha, Bravo or Charlie
The first two areas on the list will spawn a lot of glowing enemies that you can kill to farm nuclear waste. Whitespring also has the added bonus of robots to help you fend off the hordes of enemies. The silo locations have towers with biometric scanners that can be farmed for a lot of nuclear material.
