    Wendigo Cave is a location in Fallout 76.


    This maze-like cave is, apparently, one of the original sites infested by wendigos, following the banishment of the Gourmands' leaders from the raiders.

    Points of interest

    • The cave is a mandatory stop during Key to the Past and quickly proves to be a deathly maze of claustrophobic, poorly lit corridors filled with a variety of monsters, including ghouls, mirelurks, and of course, wendigos. The confusing layout can be made a little saner by remembering that the cavern is shaped roughly like the letter B.
    • The entrance lies to the southeast. Major points of interest include the wendigo chamber in the northernmost chamber, which also includes the location's steamer trunk, a power armor spawn point at the central tunnel that runs east to west (can't miss it, it has a large drop, a stair in the center), and a large chamber that runs north to south on the western side of the cave, which includes plenty of enemy spawns.

    Notable loot

    Holotapes and Notes
    • Wendigo Cave - Soldier's Story: The holotape is near the deceased soldiers in the first large chamber.
    • Gourmands Key Fragment: The holotape is on the progenitor wendigo that spawns during the mission Key to the Past.
    • Edie's Note: The note is on a sleeping bag in the large chamber past the mirelurks with the waterfall.
    • Morris's End: The holotape is on a rock by the sleeping bags in the large chamber past the mirelurks with the waterfall.
    • Raider's Note: The note is next to the body of a dead raider on a small ledge directly south of the waterfall in the large cavern, around halfway through the cave.
    Potential bobbleheads
    • In the cave alcove with the spike floor trap board, two sleeping bags, and skeletons, inside the cave interior.
    • In the watery junction cavern with the rock column, between two skeletons, open first aid boxes, and some revolting offal, in a small blue tray container, inside the cave interior.
    • At the foot of a rock column, by some Canned Dog Food, near a skeleton in the junction cavern of the cave interior.
    • By the chained skeleton with the red bandana, below the shaft of light in the rubble-filled alcove with the metal box, inside the cave interior.
    Potential magazines
    • By the skeleton with the cooler, in the tiny alcove (west), in the upper part of the main cavern, above the river.
    • By the skull and headless skeleton, near a small pond of dirty water and an ammo box, northwest wall in a small connecting cavern with narrow tunnels to the northwest, north, and southeast.
    • Among the pile of bloody human bones, southeast alcove in one of the main junction caverns with the rock column.
    • By the headless skeleton with the first aid kit and Rad-X, in the small southeast cave alcove with the orange tool box and wicker basket nearby, off the narrow east-west tunnel with the Bone Chimes.
    Potential power armor
    • At the bottom of the "staircase".
    Plans and Recipes
    • A randomized plan/recipe spawns near the sleeping bags in one of the trapped antechambers.
    • A randomized plan/recipe spawns next to the body of a dead raider on a small ledge directly south of the waterfall in the large cavern, around halfway through the cave.
