If there’s one thing that every Fallout game has taught us, it’s that humans never learn their lesson. As if Earth needed to endure any more nuclear explosions, Fallout 76 allows players to launch nukes of their own and even encourages them to do so. 

While obtaining pre-war nuclear launch codes was a privilege only a few in the world had, the post-apocalyptic wasteland hands out codes as if they were phone numbers. If you’re looking to leave a radioactive scar upon Earth yourself, you’re gonna need to know what Nuke Codes are currently active.

Currently active Fallout 76 Nuke Codes (May 13 – May 20):

619 52 546

576 31 629

586 12 449

Nuke Codes reset every Sunday at 5pm PT / 8pm ET / Monday 12AM UTC:

In Fallout 76, Nuke Codes are weekly codes for launching nukes across the Appalachian Wasteland. When the codes reset every Sunday night, any codes held within player inventories will be deleted. Each code consists of eight digits corresponding to one of the three nuclear launch sites within the game: Alpha, Bravo, and Charlie. Since each code can be used by any player while they are active, the community comes together to decipher the codes each week so that individuals don’t have to.

Besides nuking other players’ camps for fun, nuclear launches play a vital role in the endgame of Fallout 76. After an area is nuked, some of the highest-level enemies, loot, and mutated flowers spawn within the newly created blast zone. Some bosses such as the Scorchbeast Queen only spawn when particular areas are nuked. 

How to use Nuke Codes in Fallout 76

Every player is capable of taking advantage of the regions nuked by other players but to launch nukes of your own, there are some prerequisites. 

Here’s what needs to be done in order to use Nuke Codes to launch nuclear missiles:

  1. Complete the Main Quest
  2. Become a member of the Enclave faction
  3. Complete the Enclave quest, I am Become Death (This acts as a tutorial for the launch process)
    1. Alternatively, having a team member launch a nuke will automatically complete the quest for you.
  4. Obtain a Nuclear Keycard – By using the tracking terminal located within the Whitespring Congressional Bunker, you can trigger a repeatable quest to track a cargobot convey which carries a Nuclear Keycard.
  5. Travel to any of the three nuclear launch sites: Alpha, Bravo, or Charlie
  6. Fight high-level enemy hordes within the launch site. (Prepare for level 50+ robots)
  7. Input the weekly Nuke Codes found at the top of this page that correspond to the nuclear launch site you’re at. (Ex. the Alpha code only works for Launch Site Alpha.)
  8. Select your target and launch your nuclear missile

Where are the nuclear launch sites in Fallout 76?

There are three nuclear launch sites in Fallout 76, each located within the Savage Divide region. There aren’t many differences between them, but if a player has recently used a site to launch a nuke, the interior will be on lockdown (effectively a cooldown state).

Where to find Launch Site Alpha, Bravo, and Charlie

Launch Site Alpha

Site Alpha is located North of West Tek Research Center.

Launch Site Bravo

Site Bravo is found directly South of the Palace of the Winding Path, or Northeast of the Grafton Dam.

Launch Site Charlie

Site Charlie is Southwest of Foundation within a warehouse facility.
