Squirrel bits

There is a 50% chance that the below locations will spawn Squirrel Bits.

These are a per server, pick-up history list item.


1x Squirrel Bits

From the fast travel point, run forward and follow the road past the Church. Stop when you get to the carpark of the Flatwoods Tavern on your left. Turn Left (East), you should be facing two cooking stations, a possum, and some tables and chairs.

Walk forward, jump over the tent, and walk up the hill to the road. Turn left (North) and follow the road. Stop when you get to the white and blue trailer home on your left.

Enter the trailer home and head to the kitchen.

The Squirrel Bit is in the frying pan, on the stove, in the kitchen.


4x Squirrel Bits

From the spawn in location, turn West and run forward until you get to the road on the other side.

Stand next to the red truck and trailer and face SW. Walk forward and stop at the first house on your left.

The 4 squirrel bits are in the blue colander on the wooden crate on the front porch. One piece can glitch into the wooden crate and isn't accessible.

Don't forget to check the rare baseball bat spawn up the road.


1x Squirrel Bit

Run forward from the spawn in location and clear the enemies from the location. Once the enemies are cleared, face NW and you will see a two-story structure on the cliff's edge. Walk up the stairs to the top floor and the Squirrel Bits are in the frying pan, on the stove, on the floor.

Toxic Larrys Meet n Go

From the spawn-in location, enter Toxic Larrys via the stairs on the building's left (West) side. You should be standing in the main kitchen area. Look for the stove on the West side of the room. There is a Squirrel Bit in the cooking pot on the stove.

Stay in the kitchen and turn North. The last two Squirrel Bits are on the top shelf in the fridge.

Sunnytop Train Station

Run from either Sacrament or Bailey Family Cabin to reach the Munitions Factory.

Hi, I'm Kat or Duchess

I'm an Australian data miner who writes farming, event, and food buff guides for Fallout 76.

I believe that all knowledge and information should be free, which is why my guides will never be locked behind a paywall. However, running a website and photo and video editing software does not come cheaply.


So, If you found my guides helpful, please consider buying me a ko-fi (coffee) using the link below.


All monies go towards the tools for writing my guides and maybe for an actual cup of coffee or 3 ;)

Alternatively, share my guides with your fellow vault dwellers and help them to survive the wasteland.
