Come on down to the Wild West Showdown and rob a town for a rootin', lootin' yeehaw time!

Event: Most Wanted is a public event in Fallout 76, introduced in the Nuka-World on Tour update.


This event takes place at the Wild West Showdown attraction at Nuka-World on Tour in the Ash Heap, hosted by Gunther Jenkins. The participants must speak to Gunther to start the event, after which a short countdown timer to prepare for the event will start. Gunther says that the sheriff of this pop-up Wild West town is out hunting for Bottle and Cappy, so it is "bandito o'clock" to loot the town until he gets back.


The participants have five minutes to steal from safes around town, as well as to rob the wooden cutouts of townsfolk. The cutouts have "loot dispensers" attached to them. If the light is green on the loot dispenser, a participant can interact with it and acquire "buckaroos." There are also wall and floor safes hidden around the various buildings in town. The goal is for the participants to fill the wagon in the center of town with 600 buckaroos.

Over the course of the event, the participants are attacked by bounty hunter bots and deputy bots (Protectrons and Assaultrons), as well as varmint Liberators, all of whom emerge from outhouses and some of whom may be legendary. A gold varmint may also appear, and killing it will earn bonus rewards, similar to Event: Test Your Metal in addition to 100 buckaroos that are automatically added to the wagon.

Once the wagon has been filled with 600 buckaroos, the participants must defend the wagon from more attacking robots for three minutes. At the end of the wave, the sheriff bot appears, and it will always be legendary. Once the sheriff bot is defeated, the event will conclude and rewards will be given.

Behind the scenes[]

  • During early testing in the Public Test Server, this event had the basic quest icon/animation of a Vault Boy thumbs-up. It was later replaced with a unique icon/animation.
  • During development, one of the proposed names for this event was "Rootin' Tootin' Lootin' and Shootin'." This did not materialize due to the length of the name; however, variations of this alliteration appear in multiple places in the event text, including its introductory quote and Gunther's dialogue.[1]
  • Double Eleven developer George Platten worked as a level designer on the Wild West town area used during this event.[2]
  • During this event, Bottle and Cappy are referred to as "Buffalo Bottle" and "Cappy the Kid," in reference to real life Old West figures Buffalo Bill and Billy the Kid.
