Fallout 76 Leveling Guide: 8 Ways To Level Up Fast 2021
If you’re struggling to level up your new character in Fallout 76 to get to the endgame content, these methods will help you level up faster than ever.
Fallout 76 is a great game with a massive map to explore.
The only problem is you need to level up to at least level 50 before you can fully explore the map.
Otherwise, you get destroyed by high-level enemies in different parts of the map.
That’s exactly what happened to me when I tried to progress through the main campaign. I couldn’t go far without coming across enemies way above my level.
I had to actually invest some time to level up first before moving on through the campaign.
And, guess what, leveling is actually quite enjoyable than playing the campaign.
Here are a few methods I still use to level up in Fallout 76.
1. Get Some Sleep
When you first load into the game, before you do anything else, go get some sleep. And sleep until you see the well-rested notification. This gives you a tiny 5% boost for XP.
It may seem small but at this point, you should take any advantage you can get to earn some bonus XP.
2. Use Lunchboxes
Lunchboxes are another great way to get an incredible XP boost. When you open a lunchbox, you get 25% Very Well Rested XP bonus. And it can stack up to 4 times.
This means if you open 4 lunchboxes at a time, you’ll get a +100% XP bonus. Actually, it caps at 75% bonusXP so avoid opening more than 3 boxes at a time.
It will last a little over an hour. More than enough time to go through the route below.
Lunchboxes can be acquired for free by progressing through the Seasons. If you wait for a double XP event to use the Lunchboxes, you can get a 200% XP bonus.
3. Farming the DMV
After getting some sleep and opening a couple of lunch boxes (if you have any), go to the DMV building and run the DMV ticket machine. The DMV is in the Charleston Capitol Building.
If you haven’t done this mission already, it’s sort of a funny repeatable mission that spawns waves of ghouls that come at you. Apparently, these ghouls are people waiting at the DMV when the nuclear explosion happened.
This is a great spot for farming XP. Just enter the DMV building and start the Number Calling System. Do the Department B first and then once it’s done start C. Kill all the incoming ghouls.
It’ll earn a huge chunk of XP. After that, just explore the building by going through the door on the right. There will be more ghouls waiting for you, including a legendary one.
Beat them all and once you’re done, log off from the server and log back in. Repeat the same until you level up as much as you want.
4. Plan Your Route

This is a useful map made by user Angry Turtle. It gives you a clear route with specific places you can go to farm XP by defeating enemies.
It’s pretty straightforward and even shows you what type of enemies you’ll encounter and how much XP you can earn from them as well.
5. Fight Enemy Waves at Workshops
Sadly, there are no magic tricks or hacks for earning XP fast in Fallout 76. You have to do it the old-fashioned way by taking down enemies and completing missions.
Killing enemies is the best way to earn XP in Fallout 76 but you have to kill dozens of enemies at a time to make it work.
Obviously, traveling from one place to the next to find and kill enemies is tedious and time-consuming work. So instead, liberate some Workshops.
Liberating workshops start events that ask you to defend them against incoming enemies. Different types of enemies will surround your workshop one wave at a time. All you have to do is sit and take them down.
It’s really easy. Just watch out for other players who might start PVP with you.
Unlock 2 or 3 workshops at a time so you can jump between them while waiting for one workshop to start another event.
6. Do Daily Missions
Doing the dailies is my favorite part of Fallout 76. They are so easy to complete that it’s become a chore for me. And they earn pretty decent amounts of XP. Along with some bonus Caps.
Once you do a daily mission once, you know exactly what to do the next time. So this is a pretty easy way to earn XP fast.
7. Wait For Double XP Weekends
Of course, the best, easiest, and fastest method to level up in Fallout 76 is to wait for a double XP weekend.
Keep an eye out for news and announcements to see if there’s a double XP weekend coming up in Fallout 76. They actually happen quite more often in the game. And it basically allows you to earn XP twice as much for everything you do in the game.
Do the Workshop waves during a double XP event and you’ll fly past the levels it’s nothing.
8. Play In A Group
If you’re not a solo player me, then it’s best to jump into a group with friends or even a public group to play Fallout 76. Because it allows you to earn XP pretty easily while doing minimum work.
Just let your group handle the big tasks and follow along and you’ll be able to go through the missions and earn XP without wasting your bullets.

Intermittent Fasting: 4 Different Types Explained
If you thought fasting was just for religious purposes, think again. A newer phenomenon in the weight loss world called Intermittent Fasting (IF) is growing into a popular health and fitness trend.

During IF, you alternate between periods of eating andfasting. This type of eating is often described as “patterns” or “cycles” offasting.
There are several effective approaches to IF, but it all comesdown to personal preference.
“If you want to give IF a try, be prepared to figure out what works best for you,” says registered dietitian Anna Taylor, MS, RD, LD, CDE. “It might take some trial and error first.”
Some people find it easy to fast for 16 hours and confine meals to just eight hours of the day, such as 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., while others have a hard time and need to shorten their fasting window, explains Taylor.
But is intermittent fasting good for you?
While some researchhas shown the benefits of IF, such as weight loss, lowerblood pressure and improved metabolic health, more investigation isstill needed, especially regarding long-term outcomes of IF. There is also theaspect of sustainability.
Severely restricting calories or not eating for longperiods at a time isn’t for everyone. Some researcheven shows that those who do intermittent fasting don’t usually stick with itas compared with those trying to lose weight on more traditional diets.
Still, IF has been shown to be an effective form of weight loss– but so have other options eating a well-balanced diet paired withexercise. One studysuggests that IF is not more effective at supporting weight loss or improvingblood sugars than other well-balanced approaches.
“Weight loss is never a one-size-fits-all approach,” saysTaylor. “IF may be sustainable for some people, while others find that this approachjust isn’t for them.”
If you want to try IF, you’ll first need to figure out how you are going to incorporate this style of eating into your life, especially when it comes to things social events and staying active, she advises.
Ready to explore your options? Here Taylor explains some of the most popular IF methods.
1. The twice-a-week method – 5:2
This approach to IF focuses on cappingyour calories at 500 for two days a week. During the other five days of theweek, you maintain a healthy and normal diet.
On fasting days, this approach usually includes a 200-calorie meal and a 300-calorie meal. It’s important to focus on high-fiber and high-protein foods to help fill you up, but to also keep calories low when fasting.
You can choose whichever two fasting days (say, Tuesdays and Thursdays) as long as there is a non-fasting day between them. Be sure to eat the same amount of food you normally would on non-fasting days.
2. Alternate day fasting
This variation involves “modified” fasting every other day. For instance, limit your calories on fasting days to 500 ― or about 25% of your normal intake. On non-fasting days, resume your regular, healthy diet. (There are also strict variations to this approach that include consuming 0 calories on alternate days instead of 500.)
Interesting finding of note: One study showed people following this pattern of IF for six months had significantly elevated LDL (or bad) cholesterol levels after another six months off the diet.
3. Time-restricted eating (example: 16/8 or 14/10 method)
In this option, you have set fasting and eating windows. For example, you fast for 16 hours of the day and are able to eat for only eight hours of the day.
Since most people already fast while they sleep, this method is popular. It’s convenient as you extend the overnight fast by skipping breakfast and not eating until lunch. Some of the most common ways?
- 16/8 method: Only eating between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. or noon and 8 p.m.
- 14/10 method: Only eating between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.
This method of IF can be repeated as often as you’d or even done once or twice a week – whatever your personal preference is.
Finding the right eating and fasting windows for this method might take a few days to figure out, especially if you’re very active or if you wake up hungry for breakfast.
“This form of fasting is a safer bet for many people who are interested in trying IF for the first time,” says Taylor.
4. The 24-hour fast (or eat: stop: eat method)
This method involves fasting completely for a full 24 hours. Often times, it’s only done once or twice a week. Most people fast from breakfast to breakfast or lunch to lunch. With this version of IF, the side effects can be extreme, such as fatigue, headaches, irritability, hunger and low energy.
If you follow this method, you should return to a normal, healthy diet on your non-fasting days.
Intermittent fasting is not a magic pill
Whether you are doing IF, keto, low carb, high protein, vegetarian, the Mediterranean diet – you name it – it all comes down to the quality of your calories and how much you’re consuming.
The bottom line with IF? Although the jury is still out and long-term effects are still being studied, it’s crucial to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet while following IF.
You can’t eat junk food and excessive calories on non-fasting days and expect to lose weight, says Taylor.
Side effects & risks
Intermittent fasting is not safe for some people, including pregnant women, children, people at risk for hypoglycemia, or people with certain chronic diseases.
“If you’re at risk for an eating disorder, you shouldn’t attempt any sort of fasting diet,” advises Taylor. “IF has also been known to increase the lihood of binge eating in some people because of the restriction.”
If you’re interested in trying IF, you should also be aware of some not-so-pretty side effects. IF can be associated with irritability, low energy, persistent hunger, temperature sensitivity and poor work and activity performance.
Where to start?
Consider a simple form of IF when starting out.
“If you want to try IF, I would recommend starting with a more moderate approach of time restricted eating,” says Taylor. “Start by cutting out nighttime eating and snacking and then start to limit your ‘eating window’ each day – such as only eating from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.”
As you progress and monitor how you feel, you may choose to gradually increase your fasting window.
Speak with your doctor or a dietitian before starting IF, Taylor recommends, and proceed with caution and take it slow.
