Welcome to the ever-expanding page for Pioneer Scouting in Fallout 76. We want you to have an amazing backpack, and get some cool other side bonuses along the way. While we’re dedicated to making this a complete guide to everything you need to know, we certainly wouldn’t turn down a helping hand (even if it’s just cool in-game pictures to liven up the articles). And, in lieu of direct help, if there’s any specific content or guides you’d like us to put at the top of our list, let us know!

The Scorchbeast Queen fight and the Encrypted event are your best bets if you’re playing solo, or, if you’re on Xbox, there’s a good chance one of us can help out.

Just be aware that it’s a work in progress, and also that if you haven’t advanced to the possum rank, doing the associated requirements for those merit badges won’t count, so get cracking on those Tadpole badges!
Here’s the first of our Fallout 76 merit badge guides, to help you get your ...Read More »
