In Fallout 76, containers are world objects that have their own inventory and that can be interacted with.


The player character can transfer items from the container's inventory to their own inventory and vice versa. When a container is locked its inventory cannot be accessed before the player character unlocks it. When a container is marked as owned, taking items from such containers is considered theft and might turn nearby characters hostile. Items placed in a container will disappear over time. Containers in settlements that are controlled by the player character are not affected.

If one wants to store an item in a container, the "Transfer" option must be selected by pressing the corresponding button. From there, the player can choose what items to store and take. However, the player can view the container's contents and loot the container without having to open it by scrolling up and down and selecting the "Take" option.

Unique to Fallout 76, stash boxes are private, instanced containers. Unlike other containers, all stash boxes share the same inventory for each player character, allowing player characters to access any stashed item from any stash box across Appalachia. A variant is known as a scrapbox.
