The first Super Mutants in Appalachia were created right before the Great War, when West Tek poisoned the drinking water of Huntersville with the FEV Virus, in a sinister, secret experiment gone horribly wrong.Fallout 76 loading screen

Huntersville is a town in the Savage Divide region of Appalachia in 2102.


Huntersville is ground zero for the super mutants of Appalachia, with West Tek testing a strain of FEV by releasing it into the town's water supply before the Great War.[1]

Designated Field Test Site 3 A,[1] the initial strain released into Huntersville was designed to act over a longer period of time than other strains, and the area was quarantined by the U.S. Army to better observe the results and remove promising subjects.[2]

After the war, the super mutants used Huntersville as their base of operations. They started raiding nearby settlements, including the raiders, to the point of kidnapping the leader of the Trappers leaving his booby trapped body at the town center.

The mutants were nearly wiped out by joint forces of the Brotherhood of Steel and Responders, giving the region some time to recover. After the Scorched wiped out both organisations the super mutants once again took shelter in the town.


  • The playground at the east end of town contains the Tac Ops terminal.
  • The first trailer northeast of the town's north gate has a chemistry station.
  • Behind the shed northeast of the above trailer is a power armor station.
  • The first house northwest of the town's north gate contains Gail Meyer's terminal.

Notable lootEdit


A graveyard with Brotherhood soldiers can be found near the east entrance to the town.


Huntersville appears only in Fallout 76.

Behind the scenesEdit

Huntersville is a real-life census-designated place in West Virginia with a population of 73. Interestingly, the real Huntersville is located east of Watoga; its in-game location more accurately corresponds with the real-life position of Summersville.



  1. 1.0 1.1 West Tek research center terminal entries - FTS-3A Water Analysis: Water analysis report for Field Test Site 3A: Huntersville
    The approved FEV strain has been introduced to the Huntersville water supply, while chlorine dioxide content has been reduced slightly to decrease its effectiveness at disinfecting the virus.
    No noticibleIcon sic differences in water quality should be discernible by the population.
  2. West Tek research center terminal entries - FTS3A Water Analysis: We predict infection to be widespread among the test subjects, but due to the nature of this strain, the results may appear slower than the concentrated lab strain.
