Fallout 76 Power Armor Locations
Power Armor works a little differently in Fallout 76, when compared to previous entries in the Fallout series. There’s only a finite number of suits per server, so if someone gets to one before you, then it’s gone. To save you some time, we’ve listed some key locations for finding Power Armor in Fallout 76 below. We’ll give you a description of where they are on the map, and how to get them.
Where to Get Power Armor in Fallout 76
There are a few places to pick up Power Armor in Fallout 76, but let’s start with one of the closest. If you head east of Vault 76, you’ll come across a location called Morgantown Warehouse. What you’re looking for is a train car with USA written on the side. Inside is parts of a T-45 Power Armor. It’s not complete, but is enough to get you started at a low level. For some additional Fallout 76 Power Armor locations, check out the list below:
- Aaronholdt Homestead

Fallout 76 Power Armor Level Requirements
There are a few different things you’ll need to keep in mind while searching for Power Armor in Fallout 76. There are four different types of Power armor, each requiring a different level to operate. For the T-45 you’ll need to be level 25. For T-51 you’ll need to be at least level 30, and for T-60 you must be level 40. At the time of writing it is unknown what level you’ll need to be to control the X-01.
