Eating a bunch of Cranberries is an excellent way for Fallout 76 players to quickly regenerate their health and get extra fruit in their diets. Aside from being a useful consumable item, Fallout 76’s cranberries are crucial ingredients in complex crafting recipes. This includes advanced cooking recipes, allowing players to cook food with various useful temporary boosts to help them as they journey across Appalachia. To pick some berries, however, players will need to explore the dangerous wilderness of the Cranberry Bog region in search of cranberry plants.
Like other consumable items, including Fallout 76’s Dog Food, cranberries can reliably be found in several locations. Of course, some locations will have more than others, and players should prioritize these if their weapons and gear are solid enough to keep them safe.
However, it’s also worth noting that players can find cranberries and cranberry plants elsewhere, and given the dangers posed by the hostile wildlife in the Cranberry Bog, it’s best to plan longer expeditions. By visiting several locations on the same trip, players can harvest a bumper crop of cranberries and avoid making too many repeat journeys into this dangerous part of the map.
The Cranberry Bog region is located in the southeast region of the map, a good distance away from Appalachia’s Middle Mountain Cabins. According to the Fallout Wiki and the Youtube channel PoxiiPro, cranberry plants can be found in the following locations:
- Aaronholt Homestead
- Cranberry Glade
- Creekside Sundew Grove
- Giant Teapot
- Mac’s Farm
- Overgrown Sundew Grove
- Sparse Sundew Grove
- Sunrise Field
