Our Fallout 76 springs guide includes details of junk items that provide springs when scrapped. You can find some of the most common locations to find the crafting commodity, too.
Springs are used when crafting a lot of items, and they are also required for CAMP building, repairs, and upgrades. Fortunately, they are found in a lot of junk items, and can also be bought from the vendors that you happen across in train stations. You will need a lot screws in Fallout 76, though. The guide will help you if you’re struggling to easily locate them.
Fallout 76 Where To Find Springs
As with most crafting components in the game, you can buy screws from vendors. In fact, you can buy bulk screws which contains a set of 10 screws. Vendors are easy to find, typically at train stations as well as in a few other locations.
If you’re struggling to find a local train station, head to the train track and follow it to the nearest town or settlement. You can fast travel to the closest station you’ve discovered. It will cost a few caps, and the purchase of bulk screws will also cost you.
For these reasons, and because it is, in our opinion, more fitting to the story of the game, you should consider getting out there and scavenging for springs.
Springs are found in a lot of junk items. They can also, although rarely, be found in their pure form. The following are the junk items that contain springs:
|Chez Vivi Typewriter||5|
|Giddyup Buttercup Back Leg||2|
|Giddyup Buttercup Body||2|
|Giddyup Buttercup Front Leg||2|
|Giddyup Buttercup Head||2|
|Gold Pocket Watch||1|
|Silver Pocket Watch||2|
|Unused Flip Lighter||1|
|Vault-Tec Alarm Clock||2|
|Wakemaster Alarm Clock||2|
Where To Farm For Springs
Probably the most commonly found junk item that contains springs is the battered clipboard. These are found in volume in many buildings, including offices, commercial and industrial buildings. They are also found in health centers, military outposts, and pretty much everywhere.
- If you’re looking to pick up a large number of springs in a single run, Camp McLintock in the South West of the camp is awash with them.
- Sugar Grove, in Savage Divide, also gives desk fans and clipboards, to the tune of around 40 springs.
Just make the occasional run to these spots and you should be able to keep a healthy stock of springs at your disposal.
Tag For Search
Items that contain Fallout 76 springs are found all over Appalachia. In some ways, this makes them even more difficult to find. Like the adage, you can’t see the wood for the trees, you will have to concentrate to make sure you spot all the items that contain these little resources.
Alternatively, use the Tag For Search feature. When you tag springs, any item that you look at or that is in a container, and that yields springs when scrapped, will be highlighted with a magnifying glass next to it. This greatly reduces the chance of you overlooking that item.
