Backpacks are new functional items being introduced with Ever Upwards that you can equip to increase your carry weight, so that you have room for more supplies when you head into the great outdoors. They are also customizable and can be modded to fit your fashion sense and personal tastes.

The backpack is an armor item in Fallout 76, introduced in the Wild Appalachia update.

Characteristics

The base Carry Weight increases with the level of the backpack, maxing out at an additional 60 Carry Weight at level 50. The backpack provides no benefit when entering a suit of power armor, as the equipment is removed and stored in the player's inventory automatically. Despite having a set value, backpacks cannot be dropped or sold.

After completing the Order of the Tadpole, the standard backpack is automatically unlocked for crafting and plans for modifications are available for purchase from the Possum vending machine. It can also be outfitted with a variety of functionality boosting mods, including options for increased Carry Weight, Resistance to Physical, Energy or Radiation damage, or slower food spoilage.

Backpack flair

Cosmetic attachments can be added to hang from backpacks, on the left, right, or both sides.
