Where to find and how to farm for Starlight Berries in Fallout 76 - Route 4

 

This route covers Seventy (70) Starlight Berry Bushes.


Fun and useful fact: Starlight Berry bushes are referred to as creepers in the game files. In real life, a creeper needs a form of support, be it a tree, a power pole, or a lamp post. If you can’t find a particular bush while using this guide, keep the above information in mind, as generally, the bush will be growing at the base of a tree or power pole in the area.


To make things simple, Starlight Berries will now be referred to as SLB, for the rest of the guide.

I have done my best to provide accurate directions to every Starlight Berry bush, however, for some, you may need to refer to the photo to find them, as there is no landmark or map marker in the area to use as a point of reference.


Note: Soot flowers, Mutfruit, Fire caps, Silt Beans, and Rhododendron flowers all grow along these routes. It is worth collecting them as you are harvesting the starlight berries.

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.
