The barrel burial site is an unmarked location in the Savage Divide region of Appalachia.


Someone was paid cash to dispose of several barrels, though they died nearby. Their skeleton lies next to their final deed.[1]


Located just north of Sugar Grove, a scene can be found where a skeleton in a lab coat lays next to a gas mask. Nearby are several partially buried barrels covered in stacks of pre-War money and a shovel. A Pick-R-Up truck is parked nearby, the bed of which contains several more barrels.


The barrel burial appears only in Fallout 76.

Behind the scenes

This location is a cultural reference to the scene from Breaking Bad in which Walter White buries barrels full of money in the desert.

    31. Barrel Burial: Someone was paid stacks of cash to bury some barrels at the edge of the Mire. The prewar money is still there, as useless as the skeleton."
