  • Nothing is gained if the player does not have at least level 1 of the Scrapper perk. At level 3 yields are doubled or more than doubled.

LocationsEdit

  • Copper can be found all across the Commonwealth. It can also be scrapped from weapons and armor if the player character has obtained the Scrapper perk. The best source of copper for scrapping are modified pipe rifles, pipe revolvers and pipe pistols; specifically those with longer barrels. Further to this, any pipe weapon with the 'rifle' suffix will yield at least 1 copper when scrapped.
  • A large number of junk objects containing copper can be found at Wattz Consumer Electronics.
  • A large number of pre-War lamps (4 copper each) can be found at the Cabot House.
  • Can also be scrapped from the street lamps in Sanctuary.

Additionally, some vendors will sometimes have shipments of copper in stock. When they have copper, it might be a shipment of 25 or 50; the shipments of 50 seem to become more commonly available as the player character advances. The following vendors have been known to carry copper shipments:

Fallout 76Edit
