    Black Mountain Ordnance Works is a location in Fallout 76.


    This remote storage and disposal facility has been operated by Cole & Parker Holdings Ltd., leasing secure, shielded domes to a variety of parties. Before the Great War, its two major clients were Greene Custom Defense Systems (at least 1 dome) and Nuka-Cola Corporation (at least 2 domes).[1] Its earlier function was the manufacture of high explosives for the United States military and for this reason it was folded under the command of the Department of Defense's Reclamation and Renovation branch. It appears, though, that the facility suffered a catastrophic fate before the war, with its acid vats quite simply exploding, rendering it useless for the war effort.[2]

    Points of interest

    • Black Mountain Ordnance Works is a complex spread out over the area. The main grounds are to the west, overlooking the shores of the river, with eight ordnance domes scattered throughout the woods to the north, on the other side of the road, and to the southeast of the ground. The domes are all locked and require locating keys.
    • There are three domes on the northern side of the road, with the easternmost containing a power armor spawn and crafting station.
    • There are five more to the south. The southwestern one contains crafting stations for armor, weapons, and cooking.
    • In patch, Dome 7 was made accessible by performing a keyhunt for two paired key cards at Kanawha Nuka-Cola Plant and Tanagra Town, Nuka-Cola Marketing Access Code from the Crashed Plane site, generating a one time use code from Ingram Mansion, then traveling to Overlook Cabin to uncover two secret doors to get TNT Dome key 7.

    Notable loot

    • Potential power armor: Northeast of the Black Mountain works, inside the locked domes.
    • Alien blaster ammo: In the UFO dome.
    • Plan: T-51 Power Armor Nuka-Cola Paint: Nuka-Cola collector's dome, northern side of the road, center dome. The key to the door is available after following a trail of clues and other keys:
