Firecracker berry is a consumable item in Fallout 76.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Firecracker berries are vibrant red berries that glow in the dark. They will start to rattle when approached by a player character. If left alone, they will explode, dealing fire damage, and cannot be gathered afterward.

When affected by an intercontinental ballistic missile event, firecracker berries will turn into bomb berries, which can be harvested for raw cobalt flux.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Firecracker berries are primarily found in the Savage Divide, heavily concentrated in the southern half. There is also a large quantity around Arktos Pharma.
