Fallout 76 was released four years ago to huge controversy and crushing condemnation, but the game had fans who stuck by. After dozens of updates, Bethesda’s attempt to bring the iconic first-person wasteland exploration adventure to the MMO market is generally more well-received.
In order to craft new items and consistently improve a player’s loadout, they will have to find new blueprints across the world. Blueprints serve as blueprints that allow you to create new weapons, armor, recipes, and clothing. There are tons of important gadgets players will need to look out for, but there’s a great weapon that lets them use lightning.
How to build the Tesla Rifle in Fallout 76
The Tesla Rifle is a weapon that fires an arc of electricity that bounces between enemies and deals massive damage. It doubles as a shotgun with a massive spread and serves as a brilliant crowd control weapon.
To get the Tesla Rifle, players need to find the blueprint somewhere in Fallout 76’s Appalachians. Fortunately, there are a few ways to acquire the Tesla Rifle blueprints.
The easiest way to get Tesla Rifle plans is to buy them from a supplier. As long as the player is beyond level 40, the Brotherhood vendor at Whitespring Resort or the Bot Phoenix vendor at Watoga Shopping Plaza will sell the plans. It will cost the player 1200 caps but will save a lot of effort.
Those who don’t want to deposit the money can check the containers at Ash Heap, Mire and Cranberry Bog. Players can also find treasure maps in the area that lead them to the Tesla Rifle plans.
Players also have a low chance of winning the Daily Ops Tesla Rifle blueprints. Between levels 40 and 49, players can get these plans as a daily reward, but that’s not likely.
Finally, some creatures in some areas will abandon the Tesla Rifle plans. Go to Ash Heap, Aim or Cranberry Bog. Killing a Behemoth, Deathclaw, Fog Crawler, Grafton Monster, Hermit Crab, Honey Beast, Mega Sloth, Mothman, Schorchbeast, Seepsquatch, or other bosses can grant the plan.
Using the Tesla Rifle in Fallout 76
Once the player has the plans, he can craft the weapon from any crafting bench with the right equipment. Fortunately, in Fallout 76, making the weapon is just the beginning.
Players will need the following parts to create their own Tesla Rifle:
- 16 Sticker
- 11 Circuits
- 8 Crystals
- 7 Nuclear Material
- 15 Plastic
- 19 screws
- 25 Steel
With this, players will have a standard Tesla rifle. While this weapon is great, mods can make it better.
The Tesla Rifle doesn’t have many unique mods to use, but the ones it does have are important. A fan-favorite choice is the Automatic Barrel, which reduces damage output per shot but allows the player to fire quickly. With a rapid arc lightning blast, this weapon is a beast in PVP and PVE.
Fallout 76 players have a ton of great weapons to choose from, but the Tesla Rifle is one of the most beloved. They just need to pursue those plans and make their own ray gun.
