If you thought finding screws and ballistic fiber was difficult, you’ll be tearing your hair out hunting for black titanium. This rare crafting material is currently only really used to craft a particular variant of power armor. It is also a requirement for one specific quest. It might be rare but there is likely to come a point when you’re hunting it down. Unfortunately, it is one of the rarest materials in the game. Below we’ve highlighted the best Fallout 76 black titanium locations to help, when the time does arise.
Fallout 76 Black Titanium Locations
As we mentioned above, there are currently no vendors selling black titanium. Unlike most other crafting items, you can’t salvage the material when scrapping standard items either. This means that the only way you can farm black titanium is by hunting for ore.
There are a few locations to find it. But, most of these areas do pose a serious challenge. Your best bet is to wait until you are a high level.
In fact, if you are working your way through quests, the best time to start gathering the ore is during the Miner Miracles quest. This quest grants you a full set of Excavator Power Armor, as well as plans to construct your own Power Armor Workstation at your camp.
There are a few ways to gather this rare ore:
Defeat Legendary Deathclaws At Deathclaw Island
Deathclaws are a formidable foe, and if you’ve played virtually any of the game series, you will know they are not to be trifled with. To gather Fallout 76 black titanium ore, ensure that you’re well armed and have well maintained and high quality armor.
Head to Deathclaw Island, on the West side of the map and near the ferris wheel map icon. This island is home to Legendary Deathclaws. You will be able to scavenge between one and four pieces of ore from each body.
If you aren’t up for winning one-on-one fights with these creatures, bear in mind that they rarely cross water. Either sit and snipe them from the other side of the river, or set up your camp on the opposite river bed and install a few turrets. They will wipe out the creatures and leave you free to go and gather resources from their dead bodies.
Pay Caps To Buy Maps To Find Fallout 76 Black Titanium Ore
If you’re not afraid to invest some of the caps you’ve been squirreling away, heading to Welch in the oily region of the map. Here, there is a vendor that sells mining maps. You will have to pay 100 caps per map, and there are three for sale, so you will be parting with 300 caps in total.
As well as pinpointing the location of Fallout 76 black titanium ore deposits, the maps will give you directions to plenty of other treasures that you can use or sell. Follow the maps to find the ore.
Take Over And Defend Gorge Junkyard Workshop
Gorge Junkyard Workshop has a resource extractor that can be used to automatically mine ore. You will need to claim the workshop as your own. Once you have, expect to have to fend off marauding NPCs, as well as any human players that have read a similar Fallout 76 black titanium guide.
Scrap Miner Suits
It is likely that you are trying to find black titanium in order to complete the Miner Miracles quest. This quest gives you a full set of Excavator Power Armor and a Power Armor Blueprint for your camp. It is also one of the best opportunities to grab the ore.
The mission is centered around the Garrahan Mining Headquarters. Here, you will be confronted by Mole Miners, each wearing a miner suit. This miner suit yields a singe piece of ore, as well as a single spring and a single piece of steel, when scrapped at a bench. Bear in mind that the Miner Foreman comes to the fight armed with a missile launcher.
Other Locations To Find Black Titanium In Fallout 76
There are other locations in Fallout 76, where black titanium can be found:
Belching Betty Mine in Ash Heap has some retrievable titanium. Make sure you are protected from heat before you head in.
I worked my way through Belching Betty during the Fire Breathers quest line, Into The Fire. Although I wasn’t specifically looking for it, I still came out with 23 black titanium ore and also found 1 ultracite. With careful scouring, you might find a handful more ore. As well as fire, you’ll also come across some Scorched, which are easy enough to dispatch.
Burning Nine on the east of Ash Heap also has black titanium. Once again, you will need adequate heat protection.
Lucky Hole Mine located west of Fort Defiance.
The Ranger District Office at Cranberry Bog. Cranberry Bog is a great place to harvest a host of crafting materials, making it a beneficial place to lay down your camp.
Tag For Search
Tag for search is a useful tool in Fallout 76, whether you’re looking for black titanium or any other resource. If you find an item that contains one of the items tagged, it will appear with a magnifying glass so you shouldn’t overlook any of the items you’re looking for.
