How to Craft a Backpack?
There are two primary types of backpacks in Fallout 76: Standard Small Backpack and Standard Large Backpack. Of course, you can find variations of both, with unique modifications, scattered throughout Appalachia.
But to craft and modify your backpack at C.A.M.P., you first must find the plans. And thankfully, they come relatively early.
On the top floor, you will find the Standard Small Backpack plans at Morgantown Airport inside the Overseer’s Cache. As for the Standard Large Backpack, you must complete the Kindness, Bravery, Helpfulness, and Growth quests at Camp Lewis. It’s a reward for finishing The Order of the Tadpole.
