Treasure maps are a completely new thing to Fallout and can be found while out in the world of Fallout 76.
It’s possible to find these stashes of items while exploring Appalachia though players will be able to improve their odds by locating them in the more dangerous areas that would be considered more an MMO “dungeon”.
When a Treasure Map has been located you will be given a few subtle clues like a drawing of the area and the local landmarks – combine these together with icons on the map to find the treasure’s location.
The quickest way to narrow down the location is the name of the map itself as it will focus on one of the six regions:
You’ll find this treasure map early on in the game, it depicts a big oak tree on the right which sits just under a railway bridge.
If you want to still give the map a go yourself but need a hint on the location, the bridge is red and you should see something like this. The treasure is then located in the orange circle that has been highlighted.
The precise location is detailed on the maps below but basically, it is south-east of Vault 76 where the river crosses the railroad just past the highway 64 icon on the map.
Just head over the bridge and then you should see the tree above.
Once you are at the location on the map, you’ll need to look for a mound on the south side of the water, when you are close you will then get a promot to dig it up.
You should then get a couple special items, like blueprints, rarer ammo like fusion cells and some high-end junk.
