The Core, also known as the Crater Core, is a location within the Crater in the Toxic Valley region of Appalachia.


The Crater Core is the remains of the center of the crashed Valiant-1 space station. Before crashing, the space station resembled a wheel - the hub and spokes of that wheel form the upper level of the Core. Meg Groberg can be found in the center hub, while Gail, Ra-Ra, Caleb Fisher, and Johnny Weston can be found wandering around their rooms in the spokes of the Core. A staircase down into the ground leads to several other rooms that were excavated. Surge, Barb, Lev, and the raider punk can be found in this area. Lou will also return to this area after the quest Cheating Death is completed.

Surge, Lev, and Fisher will leave once From Russia With Lev is started. Weasel and Mortimer will inhabit the area following the completion of Secrets Revealed.

Notable loot


The Core appears only in Fallout 76, introduced in the Wastelanders update.
