Adhesive is one of the crafting components in Fallout 76. It’s not rare, but it’s one of the most valuable resources, since it’s required for pretty much every blueprint you can think of. Since you’ll need large quantities of it, it doesn’t matter that it’s pretty common. If you’re having a hard time getting enough of it to fulfil your needs, our Fallout 76 adhesive locations guide will help you find more.
How to get adhesive in FO76?
You won’t find adhesive in its basic form around the map. It might be available for sale at certain vendors, but we haven’t found any yet. You’ll need to scrap certain junk items to get it – things like duct tape and super glue. Military duct tape has a better yield than the regular kind, so try raiding military-owned locations. In the previous game, you could get a lot of it by scrapping vegetable starch, which you could cook by using ingredients farmed in your settlement. Hopefully there’s something like that here as well, because scrapping hundreds of bottles of glue and rolls of duct tape could quickly get tiresome.
Unlike stuff like aluminum and black titanium ore, there’s no way to mine adhesive – the only way to get it is by collecting rubbish all around Appalachia. That’s just the way it is. If we discover a particularly rich place, where lots of glue or tape can be harvested in a short period of time, we’ll update the guide. Same goes for vendors – it might not be financially viable, but it definitely beats the slow trickle scrapping produces.
When you’re not out and about hunting crafting materials, you might have issues with treasure maps. If so, you’ll be glad to hear we’ve covered all the areas, including the Forest, Toxic Valley, Ash Heap and Savage Divide.
