Fallout 76: How To Get Power Armor Right Away

Here's a quick guide to getting power armor as soon as you exit Vault 76, something that will be a huge early game boost.

If you're one of the few brave souls who decided to leave behind the Wild West of Red Dead Redemption 2 to step into the West Virginia of Fallout 76, you probably want to get something to make it worth your while. So what's the most Fallout item you can get that you'll never find in RDR2? How about some early-game Power Armor?

Lucky for you, there's a set of Power Armor up for grabs as soon as you exit Vault 76. You just have to go a bit off the beaten path. Particularly to a warehouse on the edge of Morgantown, east of where you start the game. It's a blue building, you can find it on this map right where the destination marker is.

It's worth noting that the main quest line does take you to Morgantown fairly early on, before you hit level 10. But if you really want the Power Armor right away, you can just run straight to the warehouse once you exit Vault 76. You'll only have to fend off wild dogs and mole rats, which shouldn't be too hard to deal with as long as you pick up a basic melee weapon. You can also visit the farmhouse right outside the vault and take out some Scorched in order to get your first gun.

Apparently someone was guarding the Power Armor, because the warehouse that holds it is filled with traps. Spikes litter the entrances and explosives will go off if you get too close. You can avoid most of these obstacles by taking the stairs from the outside and entering from the roof.

There are a few caveats, as Kotaku points out in their guide on the Power Armor. First, since Fallout 76 is an MMO, you'll have to contend with other players. You might get to the warehouse only to find that someone else nabbed the Power Armor. It will respawn in the same location, so you'll just have to wait for it.

Secondly, Power Armor pieces have level requirements. That means you likely won't be able to use the ones you find in the warehouse if you rushed there at level two. However, you can always just rip the pieces off and use the chassis by itself. That alone gives a boost to defense and ups your carrying capabilities. I don't need to tell you just how much even those small boosts help out in the early game.
