Fallout 76 Legendary Modifiers Guide

Want to take less damage while sneaking or deal extra damage to robots? We show you all the legendary effects you can get for weapons and armor!

The wait is over -- Fallout 76 launched early, so you can get in on the post apocalyptic multiplayer mayhem right now!

Just like in Fallout 4, special equipment can drop from enemies with a star next to their name that includes additional Legendary modifiers. These modifiers radically alter the equipment's base properties or give them huge advantages over standard weapons.

You'll know you've got a Legendary if you see a short word modifier before the weapon, like Acrobat's, Exterminator's, or Ghoul Hunter's. Below we cover all the effects current discovered.

It's entirely possible there are far more than these effects that just haven't been found yet, as the list is obviously much smaller than in Fallout 4 at the moment.

Have you seen any other Legendary modifiers not listed in the tables below? Let us know and we'll get them added!
