How to save in Fallout 76?

To save your game, fast travel to another location, complete quests, or exit the game to the main menu. These actions trigger an automatic save in Fallout 76 which preserves the progress when uploading it to the server. Note that Fallout 76 is an MMORPG that requires an Internet connection to save data.


Fast travel to another location

Open the menu, hover over a location or point of interest, and select Fast Travel. This will force the game to save.

From the fast trip on Fallout 76 If you need CAPS, consider traveling to the following places for free:

Do a daily quest or complete side quests

In the menu, press right on the D-pad to see the daily and weekly missions. Do either of these to save the game or finish one of the main objectives for the same effect.

Exit the game to the main menu

Open Map and select Exit from the menu. Wait for the game to load the title screen and save the date. Do not use this method if the Internet connection is unstable.

Restarting the game after an autosave does not guarantee that it will appear in the same area. Players may be forced to continue their progress at a nearby location. But this does not affect your saved stats, collectibles and other details.

Can players load saved games in Fallout 76?

Save-scumming is not available in Fallout 76. The game has no upload function and all player data is stored on cloud servers. This makes sense because Fallout 76 is a massively multiplayer online game that could be ruined by savers.

Can players make sure the game saves correctly?

Unfortunately, there is no icon to indicate when Fallout 76 is saving. However, players can follow these instructions to ensure progress is saved:

  • Do not close the game without exiting.
  • Do not play Fallout 76 on an unstable network.
  • Stay connected.
  • Give the game 1-2 minutes before closing it.

Fallout 76 is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
