Fallout 76 daily quests: how to start them, getting the best loot

Featured post Standing outside Camden Park. Sign has a cat mascot on it.

Some of the quests in Fallout 76 can be completed once a day, with the chance to snag some sweet rewards. There are conditions to unlock these quests however, so it’s worth seeing which quests are required to be completed, which NPCs talked to, or indeed where to go in order to start the quest you want for the gear you want. This quest will go over all of this, for every quest in all the regions found in this nuclear Appalachia.

Fallout 76 daily quests guide

To find the daily quests takes a fair bit of work, so take a look at our Fallout 76 guide hub for everything you need to know about the game, such as how perk cards work or where to find certain key items.

Daily Quest locations

Daily quests act a little differently to Event quests, more on those in our Fallout 76 event quests guide, in that they can generally only be completed once per day. That said, they usually involve a multiple stage quest that requires a particular set of actions to be completed in order to net yourself that tasty reward. This is not the same as the challenges that you can work towards which is important to obtain Atoms. Atoms can be used to buy cosmetic items, so head to our Fallout 76 challenges guide for more on the challenges you need to complete.

Below is a list of all the possible daily quests in the game, along with their locations, rewards, and the requirements needed to trigger them. I’d highly recommend searching via the region name (for example “The Mire” for those quests found in The Mire region).
