Where are Mole Miners in Fallout 76

The mole miners in Appalachia are mutated humans who reside in underground and above-ground mining locations and caves. They wear deteriorating suits they once used while mining and cannot take them off. They tend to attack in groups and are very territorial, which is perfect for completing this weekly challenge!

Mole Miners will consistently spawn at the following locations in Fallout 76:

  • Blackwater Mine
  • Brim Quarry
  • Fort Atlas sublevel
  • Hornwright Industrial Headquarters sublevel
  • Hornwright testing site 2
  • Hornwright testing site 3
  • Hornwright testing site 4
  • Kerwood Mine
  • Monongah Power Plant
  • Monongah
  • Mount Blair Trainyard
  • Mount Blair Workshop
  • Pleasant Valley Ski Resort
  • South Cutthroat camp
  • The Burning Mine
  • The Crosshair
  • The Rusty Pick
  • Uncanny Caverns
  • Welch
  • Whitespring Station

You will encounter Mole Miners in Fallout 76 during the following quest and public events (often waves of them): 

  • Bots on Parade
  • Breach and Clear
  • Lode Bearing
  • Lost and Found (Quest not a public event)
  • Seismic Activity
  • Love of Tunnel
  • Uranium Fever

Watch for the Miner’s Key item while looting dead mole miners. It lets you start the Lost and Found quest as often as possible. There are a total of 17 lockers you can unlock, making the repeatable quest worth your time after you have completed your weekly timed challenges. 

Now that you know about all Fallout 76 Mole Miner Locations, you’ll be on your way to earning an easy 1000 S.C.O.R.E. points toward your seasonal track! Check out our Fallout 76 hub for more guides like Where to Find Pre-War Money to earn even more!
