Technical data is a miscellaneous item in Fallout 76.


Technical data is a quest item used to initiate and complete the repeatable quest Forbidden Knowledge. The holotape preservation of technology describes the need to collect technical data and deposit it into a secure location in the basement of Camp Venture.

Technical data cannot stack, so there is no benefit in attempting to collect multiple pieces before depositing them simultaneously at Camp Venture.

To trigger the quest, the player character must be a member of the Brotherhood of Steel and possess technical data.


  • Chance to spawn in desks.[citation needed]
  • Chance to spawn in safes.
  • Chance to spawn in blue and orange cylindrical file cabinets.


Once Forbidden Knowledge is active or completed, technical data will no longer stack in player inventory. The item also gets a diamond marker signifying its quest item status.
