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


Caps are widely used as currency throughout the post-War United States, including Appalachia. Caps can come from most Nuka-Cola beverages.


  • Often given as a reward for completing quests.
  • Various amounts are found in caps stashes.
  • Occasionally found arranged on chessboards.
  • Gained by selling goods to vendors, up to a maximum of 1400 caps per day (resets at 17:00 UTC).


  • 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 40,000 caps per player character is enforced by the game.
