Caps, also referred to as bottle caps or stylized as bottlecaps, are a miscellaneous item in Fallout 76.


Caps are widely used as currency throughout the post-War United States, including Appalachia. Caps can come from certain drinks, such as Nuka-Cola, beer and other malt beverages.



  • Similar to Fallout 4, caps cannot be stored or dropped.
  • Bottlecaps can be earned by killing other player characters through player versus player combat, revenge, or bounties. Killing a player character who hadn't attacked back will remove caps to pay for a bounty on the killer, which other characters can collect. Status debuffs will replace bottlecaps if the killer doesn't have enough.
  • A maximum possession of 30,000 caps per player character is enforced by the game.
