Vault 76 is one of the Locations within the The Forest region in Fallout 76 (FO76). Players can access locations by progressing in the game's story and as part of Side Quests. Some Locations are seemingly inconsequential, but can reward players with special Equipment and Items.
Vault 76 is the first location new survivors will encounter upon beginning their journey in the Wastelands of Appalachia. There are lots of useful items and supplies littered around the Vault, so it's worth taking the time to make sure to pick up everything - many items will be very helpful in completing those first forays into the Wastelands, and anything else can be scrapped for resources. Players will also receive their C.A.M.P as they exit the Vault, and the first Quest: Reclamation Day.
Vault 76 opened in 2076 to celebrate the tricentennial, or 300th birthday, of the United States. Crucially, according to the Citadel computer, it was supposed to be a “control” vault housing 500 people. Vault 76 was scheduled to automatically open in 2097, 20 years after it would have closed, but the Pip-Boy in Fallout 76's teaser trailer clearly has a date of October 27, 2102 exactly 25 years after the Great War actually started on October 23, 2077.
