How to Get Ballistic Fiber FO76 Rare Material?

To get Ballistic Fiber in Fallout 76, there are several methods to go about it. All of them basically boil down to scrapping (or breaking down, or whatever) of certain items you find in the game. One such item is the Military Ammo Bag. Highlight it in your menu, and hit Space (on PC; use whatever your equivalent on your platform is) to scrap it to get Ballistic Fiber. Another source of Ballistic Fiber are Power Armor Frames. Whether or not you have frames to spare, well, that’s your call (EDIT: Turns out, this isn’t correct. Sorry about that). Lastly, a possible way to get the rare material is the Military Grade Duct Tape.

    You’re wrong about the power armor chassis. I just broke one down. It did not list any items in the scrap description before I scrapped it, and in fact I did not get any ballistic material. You should correct this article, you’re going to frustrate a bunch of people, as you did me, having them wasting power armor frames for no reason.

        Scrapping frames most definitely gives ballistic fiber, though only one. It may be intelligence gated though, I’m running with 15 INT and the scrapper card.

      Go to any crafting workbench and push the square button. Then choose the triangle button to scape all your junk and reduce the weight of it. Or choose an item you want to scrap like a weapon or armor and choose the X button. Before you accept, the screen shows you the scrape you’ll get.
