How to Get Copper in FO76?

To get copper in Fallout 76, there are several ways that you can approach the problem. The first and likely easiest method is to scrap light bulbs. There are dozens of them strewn all across the map, and you’ll always get a little bit of copper. Not much, but it’s pretty reliable. Option number two are old fuses. You can scrap them and get some copper and glass. Again, old fuses are all over the place, and they’re a decent source of copper.

Lastly, we have the copper deposits. These location can give you the largest amounts of copper; way more than light bulbs and fuses, to be sure. However, copper deposits are not as bountiful, so you kinda have to work harder to suss them out. We’re gonna go more into that in a little bit.

    There’s no copper deposit by that bridge you mention. When are you going to update this?

      They are there, just go a bit north from the bridge near the Overseer’s C.A.M.P location. There are three nodes on the east bank among some rocks.

    Found the cooper ore but when I go to fix my sword it says 0 cooper even when it shows in my inventory.

    1. N

      You have to smelt the ore at a chemistry station. Then it becomes scraps you can craft/repair with.

  3. S

    It would be great if you updated this.
