There is a lot of land to cover in Fallout 76. After a bit of exploration, you may want to start using fast travel to save time while traversing from one place to another. While some players prefer to trek everywhere on foot, fast travel is an easy way to move between locations. This guide will explain how to fast travel in Fallout 76 so that you can travel to your destination quickly and efficiently.
How to Fast Travel in Fallout 76
In Fallout 76, fast travel only becomes available for locations that you have previously discovered. While you can’t fast travel to a place you’ve never visited before, you can return to points of interest that you have already opened on your map. Make sure to fully explore each new location so that they become viable fast travel points on your map. To fast travel, open your world map and hover over the location you’d like to travel to. Select the Fast Travel button to head to your destination.
Although fast travel itself is a simple process, it does come at a small fee. Fast travel in Fallout 76 typically requires Bottle Caps, which act as the in-game currency. The amount of Bottle Caps you’ll have to spend depends on where you want to go. Bottle Caps can be hard to come by early on in the game, so before you decide to fast travel in Fallout 76, consider whether it’s worth the price in Bottle Caps or if you’re better off traveling on foot.
While most fast travel comes at a price, there are some locations that you can travel to for free, such as Vault 76 and your personal C.A.M.P. You can also travel directly to a friend’s location on the map or to a teammate’s C.A.M.P. without having to fork over any hard-earned caps. Make sure you know how to team up and play co-op with friends so that you can easily travel to one another during your play session.
This gives you and your co-op companions some flexibility when it comes to where you decide to setup C.A.M.P. Pick somewhere with a vendor or other point of interest nearby so that you can easily travel back and forth to sell items or unload goods without having to spend Bottle Caps each time.
Now that you know how to fast travel in Fallout 76, you should have little trouble navigating the wastelands of Appalachia. Browse through our other Fallout 76 guides for more gameplay tips and tutorials.
