Nuclear Material in Fallout 76 is a pretty catch-all term. It is listed as a single item, but represents a number of radioactive substances found across the West Virginian Wasteland including Uranium, Radium, and Plutonium.

Primarily, you’ll need to have Nuclear Waste to be turned into Nuclear Material. This can be found in a number of ways.

Firstly, you can craft it at a Chemistry Station by combining Uranium Ore and Acid. In order to do this, you will need five of each.

Luckily, we have guides already prepared to help you figure out where to get your hands on both of these resources.
