Firecracker berry is a consumable item in Fallout 76.


Firecracker berries are vibrant red berries that glow in the dark. Similar to the giant pitcher plant and thistle, firecracker berries are volatile. When trampled, they will start to rattle before exploding, dealing 5 fire damage in a small radius. They cannot be gathered afterward. Firecracker berries can be consumed raw to satisfy a small amount of hunger with a moderate dose of radiation and chance for disease or can be cooked for additional benefits.

Blast zone

When affected by a blast zone, firecracker berries will turn into bomb berries which can be harvested for raw cobalt flux.


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