Deathclaw Island is a location in the Forest region of Appalachia.


This island has been chosen by a deathclaw for its residence. It has built a nest beneath the ground, only leaping out to ambush unwary travelers and explorers.[1][2]


The deathclaw has a nest toward the center of the island near the data sensor, until approached. At this point, it will stand and begin walking the island. There is a picnic site with three bloody skeletons near the north end of the eastern shore. There is a covered bench with a light looking over the river.

On the western shore, there is a level 3 locked safe near additional skeletons, two duffle bags, and a beached boat with an industrial trunk. There is a data sensor here that can potentially provide one of the holotapes needed for the Ecological Balance daily quest.

Notable loot

  • Potential Vault-Tec bobblehead - On top of the shack at the northwest point of the island, on the top left corner of the roof.
  • Potential magazine - Next to a suitcase in the deathclaw's nest circle. May be stuck within the ground but can be still interacted with.
  • The deathclaw itself is an excellent source for farming black titanium, as it will always drop refined scrap.


The deathclaw island appears only in Fallout 76.



  1. Fallout 76 Vault Dweller's Survival Guide p.294: "ZONE B: NORTHWEST FOREST AND POINT PLEASANT
    This sliver of the Forest follows the winding Ohio River, the western boundary of Appalachia, and is mainly comprised of wooded and mountainous terrain. It is more remote and has fewer large settlements, with the exception of Point Pleasant, where a strange band of cultists have started to worship a possibly apocryphal shadow creation known as the Mothman. Thoroughly explore this wilderness, and you may find evidence of cultist totems built to honor this cryptid. Journey farther north to reach a disused lumber mill and scattered dwellings well off the beaten path. Elsewhere, there are small farms, cabins to ransack, and a large fairground with an adjacent dirt track, where all the fun of both the fair and resource gathering come together. That fun might be short-lived if you venture too close to the aptly named Deathclaw Island and aren't prepared to repel savagery!"

  2. Fallout 76 Vault Dweller's Survival Guide p.298: "DEATHCLAW ISLAND
    This island is seemingly devoid of inhabitants, if you don't count the scattered and skeletal remains dotted around various fishing and picnic spots—and the Deathclaw nest, of course."
