Perhaps one of the most viable builds in Fallout 4 revolves around donning an ever-powerful suit of Power Armor, wielding a Gatling Laser, and stomping through everything in your path. It’s a whole lot of fun in The Commonwealth. But feeding the ever-consuming energy requirements of both platforms proves challenging for new players. So, can you recharge fusion cores in Fallout 4?

Can You Recharge Fusion Cores in Fallout 4?

Unfortunately, you cannot recharge fusion cores in Fallout 4. Fallout 76 added a unique buildable item that allows paying players to recharge their cores, but the single-player predecessor does not offer the same opportunities. Thankfully, finding new cores in Fallout 4 isn’t tough.

If you’re running through a fusion core to the point where it’s nearly diminished entirely, I recommend selling the core to a merchant for a few caps. You can then turn around and source another by looting points of interest or buying another.

If you’re running low on fusion cores, there are numerous places to find more, including:

  • Trashcan Carla
  • Commonwealth Weaponry (Arturo)
  • Diamond City Surplus (Myrna)

Alternatively, if you don’t feel like spending caps on new fusion cores, you can loot them from countless locations across The Commonwealth. Here are a few known spawns:

  • Museum of Freedom
  • Northwood Ridge Quarry
  • Mystic Pines
  • Poseidon Reservoir
  • Quincy Church
  • Roadside Pines Motel
  • Robotics Disposal Ground
  • Concord Civic Access
  • Cambridge Polymer Labs
  • ArcJet Systems

They also spawn in Far Harbor and Nuka-World!

Once you have a stockpile of fusion cores, it’s time to start tackling side quests with the help of Insider Gaming! For instance, you should complete All Hallows’ Eve!

  1. I read an article recently that said you could put up to four in a power armor stand to charge them.
