About Ed Thorn

Ed joined Metabomb in May 2017 and puts together guides and news across the site.

Our Fallout 76 Lead guide contains a list of all the places you can find Lead, and all the junk items that grant Lead when scrapped.

Lead can be found in both deposits and extracted from a whole host of junk items too. You’ll usually need lead to mod equipment with radiation resistance properties, which definitely comes in handy once you begin exploring highly irradiated areas later in the game.

As always, crafting materials aren’t the easiest to find, especially if you’re not sure where to nab them, or what items grant them. To help you out, we’ve put together a guide below which’ll take you through both of these things. Hopefully you’ll find this page as useful a resource as...well, lead.

Where to find Lead Deposits

To get hold of lead, you’ll want to hunt down lead deposits as well as the junk items we’ve listed below.

First things first, we’d recommend activating the “Tag for Search” feature when seeking out lead. If you tag lead at a workbench, a magnifying glass icon will pop up next to it. This means that whenever you encounter an item that contains lead out in the game world, you’ll be alerted to it straight away.

Gyms are a great place for lead as they’re home to a number of junk items like barbells, dumbbells and curl bars, all of which grant a huge amount lead when scrapped. There’s a gym in the motel at Flatwoods, as well as Charleston Fire Department.

Lead deposits can be found at the Lakeside Cabins Workshop, Grafton Steel Yard Workshop, Poseidon Power Plant, near White Powder Winter Sports, and very close to a Fissure on the west side of Cranberry Bog.
