It seems that many open world games have treasure maps these days and Fallout 76 is no exception. You'll most likely find these by accident and should you follow the map to the corresponding mound, it will unearth some valuable treasure, including valuable weapons or armour, plans for said weapons or armour, and valuable rounds.
Fallout 76 treasure guide
Treasure is worth hunting for, so for those who wish to go the extra miles to gather those materials, I've prepared this Fallout 76 treasure guide that shows the locations of the treasure in the game.
Those looking for a beginner's guide to get started with Fallout 76 should have a look at our Fallout 76 guide.
Fallout 76 treasure locations
It's unclear if you can search the mounds without having the corresponding treasure map, but the cycle usually happens with the map being discovered. Then the player finds the corresponding spot nearby and locates the treasure using the hastily sketched map, digging up the mound for treasure.
Of course nobody has time for all of that. so I've prepared a list of all the treasure locations. It includes descriptions of the areas where you'll find them. You can also use "Map Genie" Fallout 76 interactive map to get the specific locations for each of the treasure.
