Looking for good locations to farm legendary items in Fallout 76?
Top 5 Best Legendary Weapon Farming Locations
At the moment the best way to farm for legendary weapons: Taking advantage of the nuked locations, specifically the Whitespring Golf Club and Whitespring Resort (also a good spot to farm XP). You can can come out of here with like twenty to thirty legendary items from just this one nuke location.
His tip: Start off at the Golf Club, lure all the enemies out and then jump on to different locations where they can’t hit you and then you can just hit them with melee weapons.
Once you’re done with the Golf Club part circle around towards the housing sort of area (north of the Golf Club). Clear the enemies out there and then you circle around again all the way to behind the Whitespring Resort. You clear those out there. The enemies are gonna keep respawning constantly so you’re literally gonna be able to fight like hundreds of these ghouls non-stop.
Watoga Emergency Services
Inside and all the way to the second floor. Most of the time at the very end of it a legendary enemy will spawn (just kill it, loot it, go back to the main menu, relog and do it again and again). Bonus: A Power Armor can spawn at the roof of the building.
Whitespring Golf Club
Good location even if not nuked. Walk inside, walk into a couple of rooms (letting them know you’re here), then run back out and wait for the hordes to come after you and then kill them all one by one.
Log out and in again and do it all over. Eventually, I do believe that there is kind of a lock in certain areas. So after your sixth or seventh time you may find yourself not finding too many legendary enemies spawning here. So what you would typically do in this situation:
One you’re done at the Whitespring Golf Club, head over to the Watoga Emergency Services and begin farming there.
Uranium Fever (east of The Whitespring Resort) – one of the best events in his opinion for getting legendary weapons.
One Violent Night (at Sons of Dane Compound, northeast of the ATLAS Observatory)
His recommended route
Start off by nuking a location (you can find the current Nuke codes here on FalloutBuilds.com!) or do server hopping alternatively and hopefully at one of the servers someone nuked The Whitespring Resort.
After you cleared the nuked area, move on to the Watoga Emergency Services.
When legendary enemies aren’t spawning there frequently anymore, move on to The Whitespring Golf Club.
While doing the two locations, look out for the Uranium Fever event and the One Violent Night event. If those do pop up, go to them and farm that way.
Top 5 Legendary Item Spawn Locations
Low + Mid-High Level Players
There a few locations in Fallout 76 that have higher chance of spawning an legendary enemy (not a 100% chance, but still really good)
Whitespring Golf Club
A lot of ghouls are spawning in here and it is likely that one of them is a legendary enemy.
Watoga High School
When you go in the High School, it’s gonna start the event “Monster Mash (Versus)” automatically. It’s more or less running around trying to get candy in this mask. In the background there are so many ghouls spawning (also a good way to farm XP).
A lot of times you will encounter at least one legendary enemy per round. After you completed the event, there’s a cooldown period. You can avoid it very simply by using server hopping. Just disconnect and join another server and the Event will be right there ready for you to start again.
Ton of mole miners around this location, so often times one of them will happen to be a legendary.
Method that will 100% give you a legendary item every time you do it: Through events – some of them will always give you a legendary item. The way to truly farm them is to server hop (switch from server to server until you find one of the events active).
Hordes will always have one legendary boss in them. Depending on where the horde is will determine how high of a legendary and how hard of an enemy
Event “Leader of the Pack” (The Forest, near the Ferris Wheel)
You have to hunt wolf packs: Low level event , so no lv 45 legendary items but probably 10-15
One reason a high level player might do this is if you actually plan on creating a second character you could this a couple of times and get a bunch of good armor pieces.
Event “Uranium Fever”
Best event for mid to high-level characters: “Uranium Fever” at Blackwater Mine, 3 legendary mole miners are spawning so you are getting 3 legendary enemys with probably level 40 to 70 which will always drop at least one legendary item.
High level players
Best way is to launch nukes.
