This page describes crafting in Fallout 76.
  • For crafting in other Fallout games, please see "Crafting."
  • For an overview of Fallout 76 content, please refer to "Portal:Fallout 76."


It is possible to craft a variety of in-game items like consumables, armor, and weapons using workbenches located throughout Appalachia. Like in Fallout: New Vegas, it is possible to craft ammunition in Fallout 76. Modding is carried out by applying pre-defined components to armor and weapons, like adding lead to armor parts for enhanced radiation resistance or equipping several types of barrels on firearms. When scrapping, the player character will "discover" new mods to put on the gun they have been scrapping.

The basis for all crafting and modding is the gathering of raw components listed below. Scrapping is commonly required to harvest these materials and can only be done in "Workshop Mode". Some items will outline in yellow, while other items will outline in green when in Workshop mode. This seems to only indicate whether the item is able to be moved and has no other purpose. Green items can be moved, yet yellow items are fixed in place.

Raw crafting components can be turned into bulk versions at a tinker's workbench. This costs a set number of the involved components to be bulked plus two plastic to wrap it. The only two components which experience a weight reduction when bulked are aluminum (the bulked version is 0.5 lighter) and lead (the bulked version is 1.0 lighter). Although bulking plastic appears to result in a net weight reduction, this is due to the consumption of 2 plastic in the bulking process. The resultant bulked 10 plastic weighs the same as 10 loose pieces of molded plastic.

In addition to weight reduction, bulking certain crafting components will allow them to be sold to in-game merchants. Merchants will not purchase the individual versions of any crafting component which can be bulked.

Some bulked components can only be purchased from merchants. They cannot be crafted by the player character at a tinker's workbench.
