Where to find Chainsaws and Mods in Fallout 76

Updated: Feb 17


Image credit: Vicyorus

 

Chainsaws, along with drills and rippers will be added to the legendary rolling pool with The Pitt patch coming in late 2022.


Chainsaws will also have melee keywords added to them. They will be classified as a 2 handed melee weapon so perk cards such as slugger, incisor, and martial artist will now work.


Chainsaws can not be crafted nor will they appear in robot vendors' inventory. There is an exception to vendor bots and that is if a player has sold the item to the vendor.


Chainsaws have a 100% spawn rate in the below locations. The only thing that can affect their spawn is if another player has already picked it up on that server or if you picked it up on another server and it is now part of your pick-up history list. If you don't know what a pick-up history list is, then please refer to this guide.

Savage Divide


Metal Dome

External

1x chainsaw spawn


From the spawn point, walk straight forward and then turn right so you enter the arena. Run straight through the arena to the other side and walk up the ramp. Turn right and you will see a small metal building on your right. The chainsaw is on the floor, next to the red couch, inside the small metal building.


The Rose Room

External

1x chainsaw spawn

Fast travel to the mansion and run up the driveway towards the house. The chainsaw is on the left-hand side of the mansion, against the wall.


Pleasant Valley Cabins

External

1x chainsaw spawn


It is going to be easier if you place a map marker for this one. There is also a lot of cliffs so bring Power Armour or a Jet Pack.


From the fast travel point, turn West and just run straight, past all the cabins, until you get to the edge of the cliff top and can't go any further. Jump off the cliff and keep running West. Jump off the next smaller cliff and the next cliff as well.

Keep running West and jumping down cliffs until you get to the ski chair lift. Walk forward so you are standing under the chair lift and then turn SW. You will see a cliff wall in the distance and then a flat area and then some shrubs and Pine trees. Head towards that gap/flat area (refer photo below).


Once you are there then turn West and keep walking forward. You should have two NPC yellow dots show up on your HUD. Jump off the cliff, turn South, and walk forward. The chainsaw is on the ground under the large Pine tree.


Mountainside Bed & Breakfast

External

1x chainsaw spawn


From the spawn-in point, the bed and breakfast will be in front of you. Run towards the building and head for the set of stairs that lead to the front door at the top. Enter the building via that door and you will see a kitchen on your left and a counter and an NPC on your right. Keep walking forward and drop down the stairs to the white door of the basement. The chainsaw is on the metal shelf in the corner, next to the bodies.


This location actually has a little scene/easter egg and depending on which ending you choose, you might be locked out of the basement. You can however fall through the door to gain access.


 

Cranberry Bog


Ranger District Office

External

1x chainsaw spawn


From the fast travel point, face West. You will see a brick building with a green roof in front of you and then a rusty shed to the right of it. Head towards the rusty shed. Enter the shed and look on your right. The chainsaw will be on top of a metal cabinet.


Crimson Prospect

External

1x chainsaw spawn


From the spawn point, turn and face South and run straight forward, until you are on the other side of the building. You might need to destroy some turrets as you are running past. Once you are on the other side of the building, you will notice some shipping containers and a bus on the outer edge of the area. The chainsaw is on a metal shelf, near the open bus door.


 

Expeditions


Atlantic City

Flooded City Center

Community Center

Gym

From the lobby, head North. Ignore the stairs and walk around them. Keep walking forward and turn right when you walk past the "Tickets" window.

Go down the first flight of stairs and keep walking East. Go up the stairs and turn left at the door. Face NE and walk forward. Jump over the table and the tent in front of you. The Chainsaw will be on the metal cabinet near the orange Exit door.

The chainsaw can fall to the floor if there are explosions nearby.

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.
