FO76SD Shelters Poster.png

Shelters are an expansion to the Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform introduced in the Steel Dawn update for Fallout 76.

Background[edit | edit source]

The constructs serve as underground shelters, similar to the Vaults designed by Vault-Tec to protect individuals from the nuclear apocalypse of the Great War, but also act as separate homes from the C.A.M.P. proper, having both their own building budget and special Vault-Tec themed decorations or house parts that can be only used in the Shelter.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Shelters are instanced C.A.M.P.-like interiors with separate budgets and relaxed building rules. Certain types of objects are prohibited, and different shelter types may have different entrance designs. On the world map, the C.A.M.P.s of teammates with Shelters are marked with a small radiation icon. A terminal at the Shelters Claim Center acts as an in-game help guide to various Shelter features.

Features[edit | edit source]

Shelters have the following unique features:

  • Instanced interior with increased budget independent from C.A.M.P. and other Shelters
  • Objects can be placed without support (i.e. floating)
  • Can toggle object snapping on/off
  • Relaxed object boundary/clipping restrictions
  • Persistent interiors even after moving C.A.M.P.
  • Death inside a Shelter doesn't drop a loot bag
  • Control panel may be used to repair or scrap all objects
  • Built-in "foundation" floors with standard snapping points
  • Shelter entrances may be placed inside other Shelters
  • Teammates may build in each others instances
  • Teammate C.A.M.P.s containing unlocked Shelters have a "Shelter" icon next to the standard C.A.M.P. icon
  • Objects from the following categories cannot be built: Allies, Food, Water, Resources, Displays, and Vendors
