Foundation is a location in the Savage Divide region of Appalachia in 2103, and is the headquarters of the Settlers. It is built on the former location of Spruce Knob.


A fledgling village built on the site of a pre-War tourist attraction. Foundation is the main base of the Settlers. Originally settled by members of a Construction Workers Union in Washington, D.C., they came to Appalachia under the leadership of Paige, in the hope that it would offer some reprieve from the horrors of the Capital Wasteland. Upon their arrival, and subsequent discovery of Spruce Knob, they repurposed the existing buildings, cleared the surrounding trees and Foundation was formed.


Foundation contains several buildings, including a barracks, boarding house, and a variety of stores belonging to the various Sunnys.


* Potentially, depending on quests completed.

Notable lootEdit


As of patch, yao guai and Scorched no longer spawn in the settlement.


Foundation appears only in the Fallout 76 Wastelanders update.
