Our Fallout 76 lead guide gives you details of junk items that contain lead and where you can find them. Lead is found in a lot of junk items, as well as in lead deposits. You shouldn’t have too many problems finding large volumes of the crafting material.
Lead provides radiation resistance when modding armor, so while it is prevalent throughout Appalachia, there will be times when you need mountains of the stuff.
Fallout 76 Lead Junk Items
Lead-laden junk items are so readily available that scavenging is the quickest and easiest way to gather the resource. Below is a comprehensive list of the items that you can scrap to gather the crafting material. Beware, though, that some items like the barbells and dumbbells weight a lot. Empty your pockets and travel as light as possible when heading on a lead scavenging run.

Where To Farm Lead In Fallout 76
Rather than pumping iron in the gym, it turns out the former residents of Appalachia were busy pumping lead. That’s great news for us. Empty your pockets, head for a gym, stock up, and then scrap the lot.
Flatwoods has a gym in the Green Country Lodge, which is the small motel on the edge of town. In here, you will find plenty of dumbbells and barbells, weights, and other leaden items. Flatwoods is also home to multiple benches where you can scrap your newfound treasures.
There’s another gym located in Charleston Fire Station.
You should have visited both of these spots fairly early on in the game, so these are the best spots for scavenging.
Workshops And Deposits
There’s a number of workshops where you can loot lead or set up and continue to collect the materials you need. Lakeside Cabins Workshop tends to be quite easy to take. Grafton Steel Yard Workshop and Poseidon Power Plant are also good options.
There’s also a great mine system, detailed here on kevduit.com, which will yield a lot of the raw resource.
Tag For Search
Lead can be found in abundance in Fallout 76. However, once you’re actively looking for it, it becomes mysteriously difficult to find. Use the Tag For Search feature to highlight any junk items that contain lead. When you locate an item that contains lead, you’ll see a magnifying glass next to the item name.
