Protest signs are melee weapons in Fallout 76.


As the Sino-American War heated up, there was a major push for the complete automation of Appalachia's various mining and industrial operations, spearheaded by Atomic Mining Services, Hornwright Industrial and Poseidon Energy. Many of the replaced employees had no other opportunities, having worked in these places their entire lives. As the few companies retaining a majority human workforce, such as Garrahan Mining, could not afford to hire them, they were reduced to picketing their former workplaces to try and get their old jobs back. These initially peaceful protests later escalated into the Automation riots which rocked Appalachia right before the Great War. After the war, the protesting workers either died or left, leaving their protest signs behind.


While by no means unique, signs found across Appalachia have one of several different slogans printed on them, including:

  • Dad Needs Jobs
  • Jobs
  • Against Automation
  • Want to work
  • People First
  • Jobs or Blood
  • Give Jobs Back
  • Block the Bot
  • Men Not Machines
  • Ain't a Commie
