Nuclear material is a crafting component in Fallout 4. It’s very rare, and it’s used in making several high-quality, high level mods, like the Jet Pack for the Power Armor. This guide will show you where to find nuclear material, and which junk items you can scarp in order to get it.
Nuclear Material LocationsThere are several ways to obtain this material:
- Use an energy weapon (like a plasma rifle) – The bodies of your enemies have a higher chance to contain nuclear material when you do.
- Kill certain enemies – The bodies of robots, glowing ghouls and suicide bomber super mutants are likely to have the component on them, no matter what you shoot them with.
- Collect junk – Alarm clocks, Blast Radius board game, Biometric scanner, Recorder and the Radioactive gland are just some of the sources of nuclear waste.
- Visit the Glowing Sea – The area in the far south-west of the map is heavily irradiated. Lots of radioactive items and radioactive enemies. If you can handle the radiation, it’s a good place to scavenge.
