Managing your stash box

Managing your stash box

ZachyChan013

Never store ammo, use it or lose it. Same with aid. Reduction perks don't work in your stash Keep maybe 100 of each junk, if you need more it's easy to go and grab Don't hold on to heavy scrip.


DukeOfIRL

Small concession to aid: If you haven’t gotten all the alcohol plans from BIV, keep one of every alcohol you get to be prepared for when he wants you to test it out. Saved me some time fast traveling to get ingredients and crafting it. That is… if you even care about the alcohol recipes…


ireadonlineforums

I haven't done that quest in a while, but I used to do over and over again to sell the plans to others--they never stay in my vending machine for long


DukeOfIRL

Some people weren’t here when that crafting bench dropped so they don’t bother with it. Honestly, I’m really only in it for the Rad Ant Lager.


Your-Merchant

Speaking of, I am trying to do that one, the Make and bring Biv a Rad Ant Lager one. Lent mine to a friend to do the quest and he drank it after. I can't find any of the Giant Ants anywhere, any advice of where to find em?


DukeOfIRL

Best two events are Tea Time and Campfire Tales. They spawn in at Tea Time and usually head for the Main Boiler. At Campfire Tales, pick up the wet kindling for 2-4 ground bugs to spawn. Use Butchers Bounty perk. Occasionally I’ll have one or two spawn at Scorched Earth, but no guarantees. I have yet to find a good place to farm them in a static spawn on the map somewhere outside there.


Your-Merchant

Ah, thank you friend! I'll check these events out. And you haven't found one either eh? I feel I have spent more time than not jumping from location to location, teying to find or discover a consistant spawn for them, to no avail.


DukeOfIRL

The only other time I’ve found some has been at the electric substations but it’s random and not consistent.


Your-Merchant

Same. Closest I have been to finding some at a Substation (since I started looking anyways) were a bunch of dead ants next to a few scorched, so I know they can spawn, but yea, random indeed.


Unhappy-Ad-7536

Ah bollocks that's probably misleading me a lot then, didn't notice that, so I assume I'll see something only weight 0.10 but in reality each way 1?


King_of_Aardvarks

Take your weight reduction perk cards and armor pieces off, then inspect your stash. Some items are very heavy.


ireadonlineforums

yep, make sure to use the sort option on the bottom of the screen-one is sort by weight and another is stacked weight


ZachyChan013

Yup. It'll show you the lower weight, but when it's in your stash it's at full weight


kshell521

I usually put ammo in my vendor but if it doesnt sell in a day or so it goes into the convertor


Clone_CDR_Bly

Hmmm... So If I place a vendor in Private, can I just use it to store ammo... or whatever? I tend to collect a lot of ammo, because I never know when I'm gonna find a cool new weapon, and things like water because the game just dumps it on me.


kshell521

It still adds up to your stash weight. Just keep that in mind, and with how much water the game gives for doing missions, i tend to sell a lot of it


Clone_CDR_Bly

I'm paranoid.


kshell521

I dont blame ya man


ankerous

Vendor shares space with your stash and it doesn't matter if you are on public or private, it's the same stash either way.


Clone_CDR_Bly

Dammit


ankerous

Yeah it sucks. Vendor inventory should be separate from the main stash.


Clone_CDR_Bly

I’m so OCD, I want separate stash locations for food, ammo, armor, weapons, etc. Like, it lets me build different *looking* stash boxes, like ice machines and what not, we should be able to separate item types.


Your-Merchant

I'm the same. When I first played Fallout 4 I loved the fiversity when it came to individual stash boxes. Each box their own. My OCD was very pleased. Then I tried 76 and because of my OCD, when I found out about the shared stash thing I was upset and almost didn't play just cuz of that. But here I am, a year and a half or so later, playing. Sorry for straying off topic lol. But yea, I wish there was an option for each stash box to be its own container, like in Fallout 4.


ankerous

I'm surprised they haven't implemented something even if it was only fo1st exclusive or only available for atoms. I'd never expect it included for free at this point.


Your-Merchant

Honestly same. With the amount of people wanting the individual stash thing, I am suprised it hasn't been implemented, even in F1st as well. But, in the off chance that they ever do, I personally would preper it be next to exactly as Fallout 4 had done. The 'Stash Box' itself, not the boxes or bags used for decor that act as one, acts as the Settlement Workshop in Fallout 4, able to hold any junk and stuff you want to build with, ect. Then the other items as individual storage that your Stash Box doesn't have access to.


leaderofpancakes

Never knew this, many thanks!


Rammadeus

Gotta learn to let go of stuff. learn what junk is common and what is harder to find. Then you have to have a balance of things you use a lot of like screws and adhesive and ballistic fiber etc (for repairs) and keeping more of them. you don't need 600 ceramic scrap or 400 cork etc. This will help as well [https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Jnc0FQ3QgkUO6HZObeeGksDTPwno1Fa-Bt7uXeqWib4/mobilebasic](https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Jnc0FQ3QgkUO6HZObeeGksDTPwno1Fa-Bt7uXeqWib4/mobilebasic) ​ Get rid of missiles and nukes and fusion cores that aren't max. Dump em, sell em, convert em, stick em in a stew. Same with excess drugs. Sell or turn your gunpowder into ammo. Use this to see if your stuff is worth keeping or scripping/selling [https://fed76.info/pricing/](https://fed76.info/pricing/) (gives you a rough idea tbh) ​ make a 2nd character and use them to store stuff with the help of a friend


Unhappy-Ad-7536

Damn, with previous games of this genre and past fallout games I've always hoarded/saved every bit I can, it's a strange feeling to not collect it all "just In case" ah I should probably check what guns I should get rid of as I keep many guns that I may use but they inevitably just waste my space I suppose, when I first started i collected nuka colas (an old hobby from previous games) which lead to me having like 380 space taken up by it which was tough to separate from


Rammadeus

Wanna hear something scary? When the game started we only had \*shines torch on face for super spoopy effect\* >!400 STASH SPACE!!<


persifunctant

*runs screaming into the woods*


opnyck

They were dark days! I remember being like level 90 thinking i knew the game pretty well and still spending literal hours just managing my stash box before i could go off and do anything


Kokoyok

"... and the stash space is coming from inside your house!"


Rammadeus

aahhahha might be the beers i've had but this killed me. GG


An_Old_IT_Guy

I don't know how I survived with that. I do remember spending about half my game time doing inventory management though.


Rammadeus

selling legendaries to NPC vendors was how you survived. Imagine how many legacies were sold D:


Ironshardz

but to be fair there were "work arounds" for quite a while til they patched them out and then decided to drop fallout 1st with its unlimited scrap box.


Rammadeus

Aye. I did that glitch for a while. And then i got fixed and i was stuck in the middle of nowhere 600 lbs overweight. Had to walk like 500 miles to a train station.


Ironshardz

i still have a character that is stuck 1000lbs over he had so much crap from farming nuke drops and whitesprings ghouls


Jebu5Krist

To add to this, give yourself a goal. That's what helps me know what I want to keep and what to let go. Am I looking to get a specific weapon mod through scrapping? Then I need the materials to craft that weapon and not much more. Screws, adhesive, steel, and lead are the only real "staples" I keep in my stash beyond me current goal items.


Unhappy-Ad-7536

I actually dont really have a goal, I was meant to farm xp due to this event but I ended up making it more of a chore with trying to piece together every XP buff and run west tek for 11+ hours due to the amount of lunchboxs I have but eh I got bored after just 1 hour


Jebu5Krist

Well then there's your answer I guess. If you don't have any need for the junk, then just sell it all besides maybe what you need for ammo and any repairs, if you don't have like 60 repair kits already that is ha.


Unhappy-Ad-7536

Dont think I've ever used a repair kit, I dont even know where they come from really but cheers


Jebu5Krist

From within your hotwheel or your pip-boy you can "inspect" your item, either a weapon or armor piece, and from the inspect window there will be an option to repair the item with a repair kit. This is the same for using a work bench as well. You can get Improved Repair Kits from fighting the Queen during the Scorched Earth event or Earle Williams from the Colossal Problem event. Normal repair kits are regularly given away in the ATOM shop for free. I recommend no one ever actually spending money for them because repairs are easy and free to do within the game but you seem to know that since you haven't used a kit yet.


ZachyChan013

Acp does not give repair kits. Only the Queen


Unhappy-Ad-7536

Hmm i may try using those then if i can do it without having to return to my camp, would be a sweet little quality of life to have and save junk


Jebu5Krist

Yeah, they work anywhere when using your hotwheel.


ireadonlineforums

yep, was just thinking of this an hour ago. Remember playing a game like Zelda, where picking up a weapon or armor was much better improvement than what you had, to now you have tons of choices. This game is the one that brought it down to reality for me lol I remember having to pick up everything, not knowing what is significant or not, because each new game is different or has changed, so you have to figure it out along the slow, painful way. I shake my head at the thought of this.


UTLRev1312

i exclusively mained a gatling plasma for months and bought any core that was 50c or under. i have about 160ish in my stash (down from my height of 240s). trying to sell about half.


ireadonlineforums

oh yes, I am like 'you want some cores? 5o caps! PLEASE take them away!'


ireadonlineforums

\--missiles and nukes I have usually a few for cargo bots and the sqb, they're the first to fly when opportunity arises lol \--drugs I sell to vendors, excellent source for caps \--gunpowder and extra scrap gets left in a package by my vending machines, for my fellow adventurers. Plus plans and mods too common to sell. And water. And alcohol. And.......


Mo0kish

Just stop hoarding stuff. If you don't use it, sell/scrap it.


RandomUser12903847

but .. but .. what if I need that toy car later?


ireadonlineforums

"A desk fan? Who carries around a desk fan???" lol (in case someone doesn't know, it is a line npc's say to you) BTW, toys have lead in them (made in China) lol


1quarterportion

Toy car = screws. Oh and they are fun to decorate with. ...I'm not helping, am I? I have so much stuff I could live without, but I still tend to be able to keep my stash below 1000. I have legendary armor and weapons load outs for when I go up against troublesome enemies. I have ammo that I let pile up for when I want to do a bunch of converting. I have aid items that I stick in my inventory for the next time I'm near a robot vendor, only tobforget about them. I have "junk" items that are used for decorating. With all that wasted space I can still usually keep my stash below max. I'm not sure I can really say how, but I do.


Grunt636

And who know when I'll need that 150lb dumbell


Aran3a

All the damn time... I hit up silos just for the exercise gear... Soo much lead...


Alone-Counter-5756

Yep. Half of the game is managing junk.


Admiral_Avo

The use of a mule character can help a lot with this if you've got a bunch of weapons/armour that you can't part with. Load them up and let them take the strain, though to do this you'll need either a 2nd account, a trustworthy player to hold it for you while you swap characters or access to a private world. Sometimes you've got to be ruthless and just get harsh with the stash. Sell ammo, convert it, dump it or use it. Or simply carry it. As an example 100 fusion cores would weigh 300lbs in the stash. If you've got Batteries included and carry them instead, they now weigh just 30lbs. Legendary gear you're not using or otherwise don't want, scrip it, sell it, vend it or dump it in a blue suitcase at one of the train stations for someone to find. Same thing with junk, keep what you need and forget about the rest, though if you ever get Fallout 1st and with it the scrapbox, junk is no longer an issue of any consequence. One other little tip if you use PA - keep the pieces stored on a frame, it takes the weight and makes the entire suit weigh just 10lbs total.


Unhappy-Ad-7536

Ohhh okay this sounds pretty sweet then, an old friend was considering playing again so hopefully she would be down to hold some items for me to give my mule, neat about the power armour though that'll probably save me a decent amount of weight


LuckilyLuckier

I’ve been Fallout first since June. Weight/Stash management has never been easier. Sad it is a premium feature, but it is a good feature nonetheless.


Comander_K33N

I’m still running above 1100 weight in my Stash EVEN WITH the unlimited storage in the Scrapbox 🤬🤷🏼‍♂️


LuckilyLuckier

I am always at 1000-1200 as well now, all I have to do when I get close is drop missiles, mini nukes, and cores. I don’t use PA. I sell all ammo. My character is 280 weight. I don’t have much issues. Normally have no problem.


FreddyPlayz

I think fusion and plasma cores take up the most space in my stash box (I use both quite often)


LuckilyLuckier

Stims and RadAways do too. Check those. My friend had 500 stims in his stash. It’s best I find to run the Chem backpack mod and carry them. Or colas/waters. Don’t have too many in your stash. Use em or lose em.


FreddyPlayz

I’m not on rn so I can’t remember exactly, but I try not to carry more than 50 stimpaks and 25 radaway at a time I also carry no water (cause I don’t need it) and 6 nuka-cola (if a challenge comes up needing it) and 1 of every other type since I just like it for my collection


ankerous

It's not a good feature if it's by design. It's an intentional handicap for players to always need to be dealing with weight limits for junk without the scrap box. When I started playing the stash limit was 800 and it was far more of a pain than now, I can't imagine with only 400 and no option for the scrap box before my time. They need to offer more storage even if it's only available for atoms mainly similar to the home storage chests in ESO.


ReformingPrawn2

Bear Arms, Weapon Weight reduction armor, Reduced Chem weight armor and a bunch of mules help keep me barely under the limit.


Unhappy-Ad-7536

But how would I get items from one chatacter to the other? Or is there an in game account wide storage I can use for example?


King_of_Aardvarks

No. It helps if you or someone you know has a private server available. You both log in to the same server, you put stuff you want to transfer into an infinate capacity container (cash register, ice machine, cigarette machine, some suit cases), swap characters, and pick your stuff up. Do not drop stuff in a loot bag!


Unhappy-Ad-7536

Ah a friend of mine may be getting the game again but I doubt they'll be getting the fallout 1st thingy, I assume just normal trading works too right? Just taking a little bit longer


King_of_Aardvarks

Yes, trading will work too.


jaws343

Dropping in a loot bag works fine. I do it every time. I like it because your character will load into the world directly on top of the dropped bag as long as you drop it at the spawn point.


King_of_Aardvarks

99.9% of the time you are correct, and dropping a loot bag works fine. However, I've seen the other 0.1% happen too. Bags disappear in the time it takes to log out, swap characters, and log back in. Bags that sink immediately in to the ground. Better safe than sorry and just use a container.


murdomcsalt

Only keep stuff you actually use, not what you think you might. Also make use of perks and don't stash what will weigh less carried.


Welder_These

If the limit is reached I have to make space by selling my good weapons, scraping junk etc etc can't imagine how people handle things when the stash limit was 400


Unhappy-Ad-7536

Jeez it used to be 400? That sounds horrendous to cope with, I would just end up using every weight reduction perk and just haul ass.


wine_n_mrbean

That was also back when bobby pins weighed a pound EACH.


Unhappy-Ad-7536

What the bloody fuck, why? They've never weighed anything before in other games I dont think if not like 0.01 I think I have nearly 1000 or something silly jeez that would be so tedious


wine_n_mrbean

I’ve heard that someone actually sent a box of Bobby pins to Bethesda and the in-game weight was adjusted shortly after. LOL. Not sure if it’s true but it is funny.


SomeRandomFinn

I saw an interview with Todd (can't remember the source) where he said someone sent him a box of bobby pins with a note: "Weigh these." ;-)


Vernon_Trier

Holy crap, 10 pounds of bobby pins! You can sell like 990 of them and voila, \~10 pounds of free space. You'll see that you will get more than you spend eventually. It's usually the small things that add up to tens and hundreds of pounds actually. 10 here, 20 there, 45 elsewhere and there ya go, almost 100 pounds lost to some useless crap you haven't kept track of collecting. That's actually good they finally added the "sort by stack weight" option for every container. Makes so much easier to figure out the "worst offenders" when it comes to stash space usage.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Unhappy-Ad-7536

Aye I think that's the situation I'm sort of in, I have guns which I've kept because I may use down the line such as a shotgun i like the rolls of and a couple heavy guns of AA and bloodied in case I prefer the other, so that probably doesn't help!


RandomUser12903847

I'm teaching myself to stop hoarding things. It's a painful process because I NEED THAT DIRTY RAG AAAAHHHHHH. But .. yeah. People have given pretty solid advice. Junk is literally everywhere and unless you have a mahoosive camp to build and constantly repair, you really don't need a lot of it stored.


_Plums

Don’t keep tons of junk you don’t use. I’m talking bones, clothes & leather in excess of 250, usually gold, fiberglass, antiseptic, etc. Don’t get rid of all of it cause you don’t know when you might want some if you change weapons or armor, but that’ll help a lot.


jaws343

If the weapon/armor isn't a fit for the character it gets scripped or sold or traded to an alt who can use it better. I find no need to save stuff for some rainy day that will likely never come, especially now that I can just roll anything legendary I want. All ammo that doesn't fit my build gets dropped on the ground, ammo is easy to come by, and easy to craft or farm in DO. Junk goes in scrap box. Salt for cooking is unnecessary. Outside of some unnecessary buffs, cooking is mostly useless.


OldG

FO76 is an inventory management game.


Everwake8

Keep only the junk you need to repair your weapons and armor (steel, ballistic fiber, screws, etc.). All of the other crap like asbestos, gold scrap or whatever, you don't need to hold onto. Most of the generic junk is easily farmable when you need it, so why have 900 of each item in your stash box, taking up space? Wood tends to add up quickly. Don't keep food and water in your stash, just carry what you need. Purified water weighs a lot, but you can easily get by with whatever your camp produces, and you'll find a ton of boiled water out in the wild whenever you need a drink. Grenades also weigh a ton. Use them or sell them.


JohnBrine

The next time fallout 1st is free use that stash box.


Unhappy-Ad-7536

They make it free?!


JohnBrine

Yes. I think twice last year. Two free weeks. It’s very helpful.


Vernon_Trier

Another piece of advice here: whenever it happens, take a note of how much stash space you will actually free up when transferring all the junk from your stash to the scrapbox. I heard it quite often that junk occupies between 60-90% of one's stash space if they don't have the box. And another one: when you'll get the free scrapbox for a week, don't bother farming junk the regular way, it is very inefficient at best. Take notes on which junk types are used the most and just buy 'em from players. I personally use text chat to find sellers with cheapest prices (Never usually pay more than 0.5c-1c per junk piece). For 30-40k caps (which you only need to spend once) you can actually get *enough junk that'll last you whole another year or two without the need to collect it at all.* Just get about 15k steel, 2-3 thousands of wood, springs, aluminium, ballistic fiber and what else you need to repair your gear and you're set for the upcoming year. One week is more than enough to find good sellers. Some people literally have millions of each junk type in their boxes so they're always eager to help out someone in need for cheap.


FreddyPlayz

Do you have xbox game pass (for either console or PC)? Pretty sure there’s a free month rn if you do, fallout 1st is a life changer (be warned though, if you do take it it’ll be hard to go back though lol)


TheComedyWife

Get Fallout First for one month. Move all your junk out of your stash, and into the scrap box. For the month you have it, go hard out farming junk to get a good hoard of it. Once your month is up, you’re still able to pull materials out of your scrap box until they’re all gone. You can honestly collect SO MUCH junk in a month. Playing without the weight management is so freeing.


juventino13

Mules


TripleB_Darksyde

Unfortunately it's designed to favour fallout 1st. But maybe try and farm repair kits and once your camp is built you can minimise junk stored? And as previously mentioned, ammo and stims shouldn't really be stored they're so plentiful in game already. Use them or lose them. For excess weapons and armour, I'd use a second mule character, but unless you have a buddy with a few mins to spare you'd need to rely on 1st again to (not even safely) transfer between characters.


vanrast

That's the neat thing, I don't.


notimeforimbeciles

I got rid of most aid items and that alone brought it down hundreds. Tossing ammo did a little but but mainly heavy things. I already drop missiles and nukes. Now I've got like 600 or so used of 1200! Woot


Glitter_Marcy

I had this problem so bad when I first started. The weight of some items seem obscene. So I used the atoms I earned to get the ammo converter as selling the ammo, even for free, wasn't shifting em, so I convert and that works really well. If it something like a mini nuke or missle, I do drop it as I find those really useless. Aid is the other big culprit for me, and that I do put in my vendor shop for free. You can only carry 40k caps, and I only use caps for fast travel, this aid is free, and people always take that. Shifted 200 radaway the other to a load of low levels which was great. Honestly, it is all about being brutal with what you keep, if it doesn't serve your build, it has to go. Yeah, I wish I could keep my virtual hoarder dream alive. Can't collect my teddy bears I find now as even displaying items count towards your stash weight T__T


TripleB_Darksyde

It used to count as build budget too until not so long ago. I had 30 weapon displays and after they changed it I got easily about 25-30% budget back


Glitter_Marcy

Really?!?! Jfc I'm glad they changed that because that is worse than it still counting as stash weight. Some of the decisions they make about this game really makes me question if they have any idea what they're doing lmao.


TripleB_Darksyde

Yep and that was intentional, if you really want a laugh, check this: https://youtu.be/kjyeCdd-dl8 It's a bit dated now as (most) bugs are fixed but still a good watch.


Axva13

Is there any reason to have more than one PA chassis? As a new player I’m starting to horde them and have about 8 already in my stash.


mjm65

I have 5 or 6 of them to use for storing legendary PA parts. Each part weighs typically over 10lbs, but 5 PA pieces on 1 chassis weights just 10lbs total


TripleB_Darksyde

Two really is ideal, an excavator and a combat power armor, that's like 80lb of stash weight already.


Axva13

Thank you! I got the excavator recently so I’m well on my way.


TripleB_Darksyde

Awesome, some people swear it's the best power armour in game but the defence stats are a little low. Can't argue with the carry weight and ore bonus tho. I don't use any of the fancy ones. I have a t51b, nothing special but all parts are mixed 2/3star with AP refresh and it does me fine and I face-tank bosses with a vampire weapon and I never die. Edit: you can us the portable power perk card in intelligence and reduce power armour weight by 75% iirc, so you can technically carry 4x more before any noticeable difference.


Axva13

Thanks for the info! Happy hunting out in the wastelands!


Darth-Vader64

For its not terribly hard as I have the Fallout 1st Sub, so that removes junk as an issue. As for everything else? Well I don't horde weapons, armor and ammo. I only have three PA, though I only use the excavator. I do keep a lot of ammo, as that's what I sell in my vendor. I'm usually near 1200, but that's mostly, food, and meds/chems as I collect them and sell them for caps.


Springaling76

I keep almost all my outfits on me


kcxstrange

Some people will get Fallout 1st for a month, stock up the scrapbox really full then cancel it. All your scrap is still accessible, you just can't put anything back in once you take it out after you cancel.


Azimaet

Anything that you can craft should not be stored(non-legendary armor/weapons, outfits, etc.), ammo should be turned in to the ammo converter as soon as you get it, unique loot items from quests should only be kept if you really REALLY like it, and make sure you only keep a set max of cooking supplies/chems/non-perishables at any one time so you don't have a stash full of \[insert chem here\] that you never use. Beyond that, don't stash any random junk that you can find spawned in the world that you aren't going to display in C.A.M.P. (teddy bears, boardgames, etc.) because they are easy to find.


SnooChipmunks5572

Camp near good junk farming areas wait until you're in need then go farming, keep water purifiers in your camp and take with you what you need, same with some food: pick and cook before you head out, don't get attached to weapons and armor and just keep what suits your build, if you're keeping power armor pieces make sure they're stored on a frame, sell everything else and if you're not planning on playing one day try to at least log on and sell what you don't need so you're not holding onto stuff with the intention of selling and never be able to catch up due to vendors cap limits.


SnooChipmunks5572

Any excess ammo i throw into an ammo converter, i try to sell known plans, but if they dont sell and i start to have a lot of em ill travel to a noobs camp and drop em there


KingdomofCAS

I really wish I could sell or dump (in a suitcase) the carry weight boosters, scrap kids, and fireworks. I mean, that's ultimately not a lot of weight but it's still some pounds dedicated to stuff I am never going to use but I'm too weird to dispose of..sigh. I am sure there are folks that do use these items and I should be able to give those folks those items! /rant ​ Prior to being a Fallout 1st member, I only kept a limit of junk stashed away. Typically a 100 of everything except for steel, lead, rubber, screws, springs. Less than that if it was something I rarely used liked Black Titanium or Ultracite, or something that always sold quickly (Acid, Oil, etc). I never stashed food outside of my legit perfectly preserved pies, never stashed aid. If you have power armor pieces stashed, make sure you have frames to put them on, that'll help reduce a lot of weight. Even if they're mixed and not matched, that can be super heavy. Also make sure you haven't stashed away a lot of basic plans without realizing it- it's probably unlikely for you but back in the day when I first started, I didn't realize I had so many plans on me and in my stash box that I had already learned. One can only hold so many broken toilet or flamingo plans!


Abrahamlinkenssphere

You know exactly what Todd wants you to do…


krorkle

Don't be sentimental or speculative about weapons and armor. If it's not good enough to use with one of your builds, then it's not good enough to keep. Sell it or scrip it. Also, don't store power armor pieces. Put them on a frame and store that.


Jackalodeath

Folks are pointing you in the right direction, just gonna mention bulking. The only two items that benefit - weight wise - from bulking is Aluminum and Lead. Everything else is 1:1 for amount:weight, but you literally waste 2 units of plastic bulking stuff. Unless you're selling it, or having 10 bulk acid is easier to remember "150 acid," don't waste your time or plastic. Also try to pay attention to how you heal. If you find yourself using a stimpak **outside** of combat, you likely could've eaten a meal that weights a fraction of a stimpak for the same effect. Food/drinks Also give buffs (as I'm sure you're aware,) so if your buffing, might as well utilize the healz. After my first 150 levels I realized I only need maybe 14 stim dilutes If stuff goes sideways (as in stealth fails) and due to my perks, rads are easily managed by Nuka Grape, daylight, Brahmin milk or a decon shower, only two of which weigh something, and I have the grocers backpack. I carry a bare minimum of chems too. Everything else is sold or dropped, you have to overcome the "well I might need it!!" Voice in your head. You will need it, but it'll be replaced quickly. Trust me. Your stash doesn't care about your perks, regardless of what your display says. Power Armor chassis can hold 5 pieces of armor, but only weighs 10lbs (5 pieces of PA can easily be 60+ lbs.) Try to plan ahead. If you have plenty copper and steel, there's no reason to pick up that 3lb Stew pot, and I'm pretty sure *everyone* has far more asbestos stashed than they use on a regular basis. As another commentor said; you likely don't need 500 rubber when nearly every weapon that can be scrapped gives at least 1. You don't need 1k steel because it's *everywhere.* You may need to farm a bit until you get used to your usage, but it'll level off after some practice.

I recommend a second account the next time 76 goes on sale. Though, only one of those can be a steam account

This is genuinely one of my biggest problems with the game, in all previous titles I’ve been a massive hoarder and I’d love the chance to do it again in 76! I understand the need for the limit in an online game to stop the servers from getting too laggy but at least make the scrap box free for all, it’s the only reason I’d ever consider getting FO1st (which I wouldn’t unless they dropped the price by 90%).

Fallout first junk stash and I run 90% reduction on ballistic and energy and carry my ammo

Im used to hoarding stuff in games myself and it took me close to 200 levels to finally let go of looting everything. You get to know what's worth keeping as you play. Remember most everything you can get again some way or another. My fiance on the other hand, is always full and has multiple alts. He wont let me go through his stash for him lol.

How do i manage it? Fallout 1st for Scrap Box. Selling 1400 caps of crap every day to a vendor helps. Get your 300 scrip every day. I still struggle to manage it but all of this helps.

use up all explosives, grenades, missiles, mini nuke. they take up space too much. they dont really sell that often. even if you do cap to weight ratio is terrible. if you want to keep, id keep the ones that damages the most for bosses. bulk your scraps that arent used very often then sell it to a vendor. my rubber and leather scrap build up quite fast so i just sell about 90 percent of what i have.

You don't need junk anymore. Unless you're a Minecrafter then lose all your weapons and just keep one gun and enough ammo. You can always get infinite ammo with certain guns by getting a bigger ratio in Daily Ops when using a gun less than the ammo you pick up. You get 5-10 stimpaks for sure from it. If you're trying to collect armor sets, don't. Its better just to buy it for real cash. If you don't want to do that then stick with one set until you get it and have a weight reduction set for guns or ammo.

short summary: use it or loose it. I know this is difficult for god role gear that is wrong for your build. If you have such gear, either create a new char that can use it, or make a mule to store it or trade it on trade fora.
