Our Fallout 76 Aluminum guide contains a list of all the places you can find aluminium and all the junk items which grant aluminum.

As you start levelling up your character in the toxic wastes of Fallout 76, the need for Aluminum (and crafting materials in general) will rise dramatically. It’s a key component in repairing and forging key items, and a resource you’ll always want in your inventory.

Below we’ve put together a guide that’ll take you through some of the best places to find Aluminum out in the world, as well as an exhaustive list of all the junk items which’ll grant you bits of Aluminum too.

Where to get Aluminum

Here are all the places you can acquire Aluminum:

  • Dismantle metallic junk items.
  • In the Flatwoods, you can farm Aluminum from the fertile soil.
  • Mountainous and hilly regions are good spots for finding Aluminum.
  • Appalachia is pock-marked with mineral veins and deposits. You can harvest Aluminum straight from them, or construct a resource generator to mine the deposits continuously.

Make sure you go ahead and use the “Tag for Search” feature when on the hunt for materials like Aluminum. It’ll place a magnifying glass icon next to the items you’re after, so any time you encounter those tagged components out in the wild, you’ll be alerted by the same icon.
