Fallout 76 Random Encounters and Miscellaneous Quests Guide

Among its Main Story and Daily Quests for the grind aspect, Fallout 76 has many Misc. Quests. Our Fallout 76 Random Encounters and Misc. Quests Guide will help you access and complete these missions as well as the rewards. The latter is usually always a stash of sorts, however.

Fallout 76 Random Encounters and Misc. Quests

In addition to Misc. Quests in FO76, we have also outlined Competitive Multiplayer Quests and Random Encounters in Fallout 76. A majority of these Fallout 76 Quests are fairly simple so you should have no real difficulty in completing them.

Enemy Hordes
The map will occasionally mark a horde for the player. This area can be avoided altogether or if your trigger finger’s itchy can be jumped into.

Once a player initiates their fight with the horde, a leader will be marked. This leader has to be killed for the enemies in the horde to stop respawning. Which they will do indefinitely otherwise.

Supply Drops
A Vertibot drops a supply cache every now and then before taking to the sky again. These drops are marked as a Misc. Quest for any players in the vicinity of the drop. These caches are worth investigating to the useful supplies they usually contain.

Workshop Defense
Besides capturing and claiming a workshop as your own, hanging onto it is a task of its own. A Misc. Quest for players to defend their workshops will appear every now and then for players when their shop is attacked.

These attacks can be from either other players or local wildlife. Defending them successfully is a good way to get loot like plans. And setting up automated defenses is recommended.
