Build a Camp in the Wastelands
The Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform or C.A.M.P. is a useful tool to have with you in the wastelands. Here are some things you need to know about the CAMP system in Fallout 76.
How Does Camp Work?
The Camp works as a mobile settlement for you to help you along your adventure when out in the wasteland. It offers you a place to craft, cook, and rest while out exploring the wastes. You can access the camp through your Pip-Boy.
Your CAMP is a mobile tool that you can move around with you when exploring Appalachia. When you think that it is time to head out and look for greener pastures, you can just pack up your CAMP, and set it out on a new location later!
Your CAMP will be susceptible to attacks by both the creatures of the wasteland, and other players alike! However, you can repel these attackers from your CAMP by setting up defensive machinery like turrets around your perimeter!
Public Workshop - Difference
Anyone Can Use The Public Workshop
Public Workshops can be found within existing locations and can be used by anyone. However, you will need to clear the area of enemies to ensure it is safe before using the Public Workshop.
Another difference between your C.A.M.P. and Public Workshops is the permanence of things you've built. Even though the Public Workshop gives you access to lots of resources, once you log out, you will lose everything you have made.
Recommended Camp Location Features
Build A Camp Near Rivers Or Small Wildlife
Building a camp near rivers or wildlife will give you lots of resources to craft aid items such as purified water, or cooked food. This will help you keep your food and water statuses in check!
Build A Hard To Find Camp In The Trees
You can build a camp in a not so easy to find area. A location with lots of trees will hide it from players. However, make sure your area has some free space as logs and branches may not allow you to build.
Be Ready To Defend From Attackers
There will be times when your camp will be under attack from creatures or other players. Make sure to set up some defensive machinery to help you fend off these attackers!
Consider Building A Camp With Friends
Building a Camp with friends will take some of the burden off you when attempting to build a camp! You and your friend will be able to share the camp, and will also work together to defend it from enemies!Check Out How To Add Friends Here
Tips For Building In Your CAMP
Collect Tons of Junk for Building
Junk is the lifeblood of your structures in your CAMP. Building beds, walls, turrets, and more will require you to use the resources that you have gathered in your travels. If you are looking to build a lot of stuff, hoard all of that junk!
Junk Scrap at Workbenches
You can turn Junk into raw materials by scrapping them at Workbenches. Just select the Scrap Items option when you go near a workbench to be able to scrap items one-by-one or in bulk.
Use The Stash Box To Store Junk
With the amount of junk you've been collecting, you may run the risk of becoming encumbered. Be sure to go back to your CAMP regularly to stash your junk so that you can save lots of space in your inventory!
Blueprint Before Moving
Before moving your camp, consider blueprinting the camp to save its current layout. When moving your camp, your blueprints will be find in the build menu. Make sure to set it out on flat areas, or some structures may be inaccessible!
Separate Buildings for Easier Moving
Moving around your camp can become a struggle when its blueprints does not allow for building in different terrains. It's better to separate your camp into parts to make it easier to place in new areas.
