Federal disposal field HZ-21 is a location in the Savage Divide region of Appalachia in 2102. It is a public workshop with claim and defend event quests.


Federal disposal field HZ-21 was a pre-War nuclear waste disposal site filled with great concrete spikes, set as a visual warning for a future civilization to avoid. By the time the bomb fell, the disposal field was almost full and the workers had to to pile up barrels at the surface level of the installation.


Jagged concrete spikes loom around the area. The center of the site, where the main mass of nuclear waste is, is luminescent with radioactivity. Three uranium ore resource deposits can be found in this central area, claiming the public workshop allows the player character to construct mineral extractors on the deposits. The extractors yields 25 units/hour each.

The two storey building contains lockers and showers for the workers, a tinker's workbench, a power armor station and the site director's terminal (Hacker 1). It also contains several hazmat suits, both damaged and intact.

On the roof is what used to be a raider hangout - two raider corpses lying on wooden deck chairs under a dilapidated umbrella overlooking the field. There is also a locked explosives crate (Picklock 1) and a duffle bag on the roof next to another raider corpse.

Notable lootEdit

  • Fusion core - In the generator at the northeast corner of the main building.
  • Two intact hazmat suits can be found here as well as one damaged suit.
  • Waste problem - In the main building on the ground floor, on a table near the blue machine that has a light.
  • Relocation note - At the Thomas farm, south of Federal disposal field HZ-21.
  • Veterinary diagnosis sheet - At the Thomas farm, south of Federal disposal field HZ-21.
  • Confession note - At the Thomas farm, south of Federal disposal field HZ-21.


Federal disposal field HZ-21 appears only in Fallout 76.

Behind the scenesEdit

The prominent spikes seen at federal disposal field HZ-21 are based on the "Landscape of Thorns" concept by architect Michael Brill, one of several long-time nuclear waste warning messages proposed in a 1993 U.S. Department of Energy report for the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP).
